BALTIMORE – 16/1 – it never gets old!
The 2017-18 UMBC Retriever basketball team was selected for the NCAA Tournament Team of the Decade, NCAA.com announced on Monday.
NCAA.com correspondent Andy Katz created a 64-team field comprised of the most accomplished national programs over the past 10 years.
And, just like in March of 2018, the Retrievers earned the No. 16 seed in the East region. Katz tabbed #RetrieverNation starters K.J. Maura, Jairus Lyles, Joe Sherburne and Arkel Lamar and sixth-man Jourdan Grant to take on No. 1-seeded Villanova in the first round.
