Verstal, N.Y. - In a key America East volleyball match on Tuesday night, the UMBC Retrievers (14-12, 3-5 AEC) lost to Binghamton (14-10, 4-4 AEC) in three sets, 30-26, 30-20, 30-26.

The Retrievers, despite a .368 hitting percentage by graduate student Jen Davis (Ontario, Canada/Sir Allen Macnab), had trouble landing their attacks, hitting .106 as a team in the losing effort.
