At some point, UMBC coach Don Zimmerman will consider retiring and riding into the sunset. But even he isn't sure when that will happen. “I enjoy coming to work every day, and I think this job is certainly challenging,” the 61-year-old Zimmerman said Monday morning, days after the university announced agreeing to a two-year contract extension with Zimmerman that will keep him with the Retrievers through the 2016 season. “I'm excited for the challenges, and I'm going to keep going as long as UMBC wants me. I feel as though I've still got plenty of gas in the tank.

Two characteristics of this Terrapins team that are going to give plenty of teams trouble this season are their size and their depth. On Friday night at Comcast Center, the No.22 Maryland women exploited both of those advantages against UMBC. The Terrapins dominated the Retrievers, winning 71-45 for their eighth victory in a row. The 26-point win was their third straight double-digit margin. Tianna Hawkins made the most of her first start of the season with 16 points on 7-of-10 shooting, scoring in double figures for her second game in a row. Anjale Barrett, the lone guard on the court to start the game, had 12 points and six assists, and Alyssa Thomas came back from a cut knee that needed 10 stitches to chip in 10 points.

After the pain of Towson cutting its men's soccer program in March 2013 had subsided, Kay Banjo was faced with a life-changing decision: He could go pro and try out for Major League Soccer or finish his undergraduate degree and then use his final year of eligibility elsewhere. It was a no-brainer. "My dad has always been big on education, and I know I'm not going to play soccer my whole life, and I need to have something to fall back on," Banjo said. "I had one more semester to graduate.

UMBC's loss to No. 13 Albany may not have been a surprise, but the team's setback to Binghamton was. In that game, the Retrievers (7-6 overall and 3-2 in the America East) lost a 6-4 lead at halftime and were outscored 9-1 in the second half en route to a 13-7 loss. So who do they get in an America East tournament semifinal on Thursday at Stony Brook? Those same Bearcats (7-7, 4-1). UMBC coach Don Zimmerman acknowledged that the team was eager for a rematch with Binghamton, but he warned against revenge taking over preparation.

The UMBC defense had the daunting task Saturday of trying to shut down three Albany attackmen who have almost uncanny awareness of one another on the field, two of whom are among the most prolific scorers in NCAA Division I lacrosse. The Great Danes' Lyle and Miles Thompson entered the game ranked first and second nationally in points per game, averaging 6.6 and 6.1, respectively. The duo, along with cousin Ty, spent the afternoon trading passes, firing behind-the-back shots and generally causing havoc in front of the UMBC goal.

Toward the end of a breakout sophomore season at Houston Baptist, Cody Joyce decided it would probably be best if he left the new Division I program for a school closer to home. Though the Huskies struggled mightily during Joyce's two seasons, the Southern grad's reasons for leaving HBU went beyond basketball. “It wasn't like, 'Oh, we went 6-25, that's the reason why I'm leaving,'” Joyce said. “At the end of the day, basketball isn't going to be around much longer for me. I'm kind of old, you know?

Jack Gannon's development as UMBC's primary playmaker shouldn't be too surprising considering his roots as a point guard in basketball. The sophomore midfielder leads the Retrievers (6-5 overall and 2-1 in the America East) in assists with 18 and ranks second in points with 35 and credits his evolution as a player to his days running the varsity basketball team at Sachem High School North in Lake Ronkonkoma, N.Y. “When I played basketball growing up, I was a point guard. So I was always looking to feed and that translated into lacrosse,” Gannon said Monday.

Any worries coach Don Zimmerman had about how UMBC would respond after a surprising loss to America East rival disappeared in the first 15 minutes of Saturday's game against visiting Hartford.

After wasting an 11-8 advantage in the final nine minutes of the fourth quarter, UMBC needed a critical stick save by redshirt freshman goalkeeper Connor Gordon to kill a six-on-four, man-down opportunity in overtime. The Retrievers then got a goal from sophomore midfielder Pat Young with 9.6 seconds left in the extra session to edge visiting Stony Brook, 12-11, at UMBC Stadium in Catonsville on Friday night. The win lifted the Retrievers to 5-4 overall and 1-0 in the America East Conference, which is pivotal if the program hopes to qualify for the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2009.
