It's no stretch to say that the UMBC men's basketball team has looked far better at home this season than on the road. In Saturday's America East Conference matinee against Vermont, though, it didn't seem to matter that the Retrievers were playing at RAC Arena. Against the preseason conference favorite, UMBC seemed as overmatched as it's been at any point this season in a 73-47 loss before an announced 1,145. The Catamounts scored the game's first 11 points, holding UMBC without a field goal for the first 7:24 before building their lead to as many as 21 late in the first half.

UMBC's 13-goal thumping of Vermont last Saturday had a plethora of motivations, but the disappointment of a 15-14 overtime loss to Hartford on March 30 fueled the team. The Retrievers had a one-goal lead until the Hawks scored with 11 seconds in regulation and then 54 seconds into the extra frame in the season-opening America East contest for both sides. Coach Don Zimmerman wasn't shy about admitting that the setback to Hartford inspired UMBC's effort against the Catamounts. “I think it was a combination of things,” he said Tuesday morning.

Did you hear the one about the coach who went 8-50 in his first two seasons but lived happily ever after? "Who gets to stick around after a start like that?" Vermont's Tom Brennan said. "I'm such a dinosaur. It's like I won the lottery, and I get to pay everyone back. The Tom Brennan farewell tour couldn't be going better." That captivating college basketball story makes a stop at UMBC tonight, where the Catamounts (15-3) will try to extend a 12-game winning streak and their dominance of the America East conference.

Last Saturday's 15-14 overtime loss to Hartford saddled UMBC with a 0-1 start in the America East. The team is just one game behind the Hawks, No. 19 Albany and Stony Brook in the conference standings, which is why coach Don Zimmerman said Saturday's home contest against Vermont (3-7 overall and 1-0 in America East) is critical. “That's the way we're approaching it,” he said Thursday morning. “You don't want to go 0-2 in the conference. So with that said, I would say that this is a must-win.” The Retrievers (3-6)

For much of last night, host UMBC seemed destined to wipe clean the bitter memory of last month's embarrassingly one-sided loss to America East leader Vermont. Then came the second half. Leading by nine, the Retrievers at once began to succumb to the Catamounts' potent inside-outside scoring attack, giving up 11 straight points and never regaining the lead in a 77-65 loss, ending their season-best three-game winning streak. It marked the first time all season that UMBC lost after leading at the half.

BURLINGTON, Vt. -- With leading scorer Brian Hodges sidelined by an ankle injury, four players in the lineup with four fouls for the final minutes and Vermont's sellout crowd roaring, the odds were against UMBC yesterday. But paced by a career-high 26 points from junior guard Jay Greene, 21 from senior guard Ray Barbosa and a 12-point, 12-rebound effort from junior forward Darryl Proctor, the Retrievers beat the odds and the Catamounts, 75-73, at Patrick Gymnasium before an announced 3,266.

No one would have faulted UMBC fans for fearing the worst as Vermont scored three consecutive goals - including two in the final 47 seconds of the second quarter - to knot the score at 6 with 6:50 left in the third period. But the Retrievers answered with a four-goal run into the fourth quarter en route to an eventual 11-8 victory in an important America East contest Saturday. UMBC's response was especially encouraging after the team failed to hang onto a lead of 8-6 in the third quarter and 11-8 in the final period that allowed Towson to record a come-from-behind 12-11 decision Wednesday night.

UMBC led Vermont by 10 points with just less than a minute to play yesterday, but the fact that the Retrievers had been up by 20 just a few minutes earlier was enough to make coach Randy Monroe as animated as ever on the sideline. And he had good reason: UMBC had never defeated Vermont in six tries -- including an 0-4 mark in the Monroe era that began last season, making the Catamounts the only America East opponent it had yet to beat. But yesterday, the Retrievers ended that, never trailing on their way to an 86-73 win before 2,122 at the RAC Arena on a day when the school recognized nine former athletes being enshrined into the UMBC Hall of Fame.
