More Division I: Seventh-ranked UMBC extended its unbeaten streak to five with a scoreless draw Saturday in chilly conditions at Binghamton. The Retrievers (12-1-2, 3-0-2 America East) set a school record by extending their road unbeaten streak to nine games (6-0-3) dating to 2012. UMBC had a 16-6 edge over the Colonials (3-8-5, 1-1-3) in shots and played most of the final 65 minutes in Binghamton territory. Retrievers goalkeeper Phil Saunders (Perry Hall) recorded his second consecutive shutout and the 21st of his career. He made a pair of saves, both in the first half. ... Alex Evans scored the winning goal in overtime in Navy's 1-0 win at Holy Cross (6-6-1, 4-2-0 Patriot League). Navy improved to 10-3-2 overall and 6-0-0 in the Patriot League, and clinched a berth in the conference tournament. The Midshipmen earned their seventh shutout of the season and senior goalkeeper Gavin Snyder (Severna Park) made five saves to improve to 9-0-0. Snyder improved his season goals-against average to 0.22 and his save percentage to .943. He leads the nation in both categories. The Midshipmen have won nine straight games, the second-longest active streak in the nation behind only No.8 Coastal Carolina's 11 games. The nine-game streak is Navy's longest since the team won nine in a row in 1966.

Men's basketball: Maryland coach Mark Turgeon extended Saturday's open scrimmage for an extra 10-minute period because he said he wanted to see more "flow" from his players. "I didn't like a lot [about it]," the coach said. "Really sloppy. We weren't going to play that last 10 minutes but I didn't feel we were getting anything out of it." Turgeon said his team fouled too much during the scrimmage.
