UMBC opens America East Tournament Saturday against Albany

Posted on 07 March 2014 by WNST Staff

The fifth-seeded UMBC men’s basketball team opens competition in its 11th America East Men’s Basketball Championship when the Retrievers face No. 4 seed and host Albany on Saturday, March 8 at UA’s SEFCU Arena. The contest is the second quarterfinal game of four on the day, as top-seeded Vermont kicks off the afternoon by taking on No. 8 New Hampshire at noon. The No. 5 seed is UMBC’s highest since the 2007-08 team earned the No. 1 seed and went on to take the title. The two squads split a pair of thrilling contests this season, with Albany winning, 73-72, in double overtime at SEFCU on Jan. 8 and the Retrievers getting a last-second tip-in from Quentin Jones and triumphing, 71-69 at the RAC Arena on Feb. 12. Paul Mittermeier and Dan Levin have all the play-by-play action and video streaming is available via ESPN3.

RETRIEVER UPDATE: UMBC achieved its most victories (9) since the 2008-09 season, but its last victory came versus Albany on Feb. 12 and the Retrievers enter the tournament tying a season-high with four consecutive setbacks. Three of those losses occurred on the road, including a 67-56 loss at Hartford on March 2. FR G Rodney Elliott (14.9 ppg), selected as the AE Fans’ Choice Player of the Year, scored 21 points versus the Hawks, posting 20 or more for the seventh time in his initial campaign. The Retrievers have enjoyed great tournament success at SEFCU Arena, posting a 3-1 record in the 2009 and 2013 championships.

GREAT DANE UPDATE: Albany could have clinched the No. 3 seed in the tournament with a win at Stony Brook on March 2, but dropped a hard-fought 73-68 decision. The setback snapped a three-game win streak for the Danes, which started after their loss at UMBC. SO G Peter Hooley, who scored 21 second-half points in the Danes’ setback to the Retrievers, leads the squad with 14.8 points per game and is the league’s most-proficient free throw shooter (132/150, 88.0 percent). Three other Danes average in double figures, including JR F Sam Rowley (11.3), who leads the team with 6.8 caroms per game. UA is 9-3 on its home floor and 7-1 versus America East foes in 2013-14.

WHO’S UP NEXT: Should the Retrievers advance, they would face the winner of the No. 1 Vermont vs. No. 8 UNH contests in the first semifinal on Sunday, March 9 at 5:02 p.m.

UMBC soccer headed back to America East title game

Posted on 13 November 2013 by WNST Staff

BALTIMORE- UMBC senior forward Kadeem Dacres (Rosedale, N.Y./Mercer County CC) scored with4:48 remaining in the second overtime period and the top-seeded Retrievers nipped Albany, 2-1, in the America East Conference semifinals.

The Retrievers, ranked No. 6 nationally, advance to their third title game in the last four years. UMBC (15-1-2) will host third-seeded Hartford (14-3-3), which advanced in penalty kicks past host New Hampshire.

Fifth-seeded Albany, which had routed No. 4 Vermont, 5-1, in the quarterfinals, finished the season at 6-11-4.

The Great Danes did not go quietly, as UMBC was 21 seconds away from winning a 1-0 decision. But Great Dane defender Dominic McGarr redirected a pass from Luke Palmateer from five yards out in a scramble in front of the Retriever goal.

But the Retrievers had all four shots in overtime and got the game-winner on a great effort by the America East Midfielder of the Year. He was fouled in the box, but UMBC was awarded an indirect kick about 13 yards from the goal.  Junior Mamadou Kansaye (Baltimore, Md./McDonogh) struck a shot, but the ball hit an Albany defender and rebounded out to Dacres. His first attempt was also blocked, but came back to him, and his follow-up from seven yards out on the left side went under the roof of the goal.

UMBC sophomore midfielder Malcolm Harris (Damascus, Md./McDonogh) scored the game’s first goal with exactly 31 minutes remaining.

UMBC outshot Albany, 22-7 and both netminders, Phil Saunders (Perry Hall, Md./Perry Hall), and Michael Pizzuti of Albany, were credited with three saves.

The Retrievers had a streak of 501 scoreless minutes snapped in the final moments of regulation.

UMBC defeated Hartford, 2-1, in West Hartford on October 5.

America East to shift basketball tournament to campus sites

Posted on 03 October 2013 by WNST Staff

America East Men’s Basketball Championship To Move to Campus Sites Starting in 2015

 

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — The excitement of March Madness will be coming to multiple America East campuses starting in 2015 as the conference announced a revamp of its men’s basketball championship format on Thursday. For the 2015 and 2016 seasons, the entire tournament will take place on campus sites with the higher-seeded school hosting each game throughout the championship.

“This is an exciting and positive change for men’s basketball in our conference,” said America East Commissioner Amy Huchthausen. “This format will afford more of our campuses the chance to experience the thrill of postseason basketball, while also protecting our strongest teams and giving them the best opportunity to advance to the NCAA tournament with the highest seed possible.”

The format change, which was unanimously proposed by America East’s head coaches, was endorsed by the conference’s Athletic Directors and Presidents in June. A conference committee was then formed to examine parameters and logistics of the championship with the conference’s Athletic Directors’ Council finalizing those details this week.

“This was a collaborative effort among our coaches, athletic directors and presidents to evaluate various options with the goal of enhancing men’s basketball in our league and I commend them for their dialogue and diligence throughout this process,” said Huchthausen.

The quarterfinals will take place on four different campuses on the Wednesday following the final weekend of conference play, 11 days prior to Selection Sunday. Following the quarterfinal round, the bracket will be re-seeded and match up the highest remaining seeds against the lowest remaining seeds in the semifinals, which will occur four days after the quarterfinals on Sunday. A conference champion will be crowned six days later on Saturday in front of a national television audience on ESPN2.

“This is great for our league,” said Stony Brook men’s basketball coach Steve Pikiell. “We have great home court venues and enthusiastic fan bases across the conference. To be rewarded for a great regular season and have an opportunity to play in front our fans and bring a piece of March Madness to multiple campuses is really exciting.”

“Moving to this high-seed format and re-seeding the bracket enables us to protect our best teams, the teams that have shown their mettle over the course of a 16-game schedule,” said University of Vermont Associate Vice President & Director of Athletics Robert Corran. “This will put the conference in a better position to send its best representative forward to the NCAA tournament and obtain its best possible seed. We felt that was very important for the health of men’s basketball in our conference both in the short and long term.”

The America East Men’s Basketball Championship has had a high-seed format 11 times previously, the last in 1995. The tournament was played on campus sites in each round from 1981-82, 1984-87 and 1991-95. For the past four years, and again in 2014, the early rounds of the championship have been combined with the women and held at a single site with the championship games at the highest remaining seed. The men’s championship was held on its own at a single site and the championship game at the highest remaining seed from 1996-2009. The entire championship was held at the Hartford Civic Center from 1988-90, while early rounds were played at campus sites with the semifinals and final at a single site in 1980 and 1983.

About America East: The America East Conference provides its member schools and their athletic programs a platform upon which student-athletes can achieve both collegiate and life success through the promotion and nurturing of athletic excellence, academic achievement and leadership, on and off the field.

Season ends for UMBC in America East title game

Posted on 04 May 2013 by WNST Staff

Stony Brook, N.Y.—Top-seeded Albany used a 9-1 run in the second and third quarters to defeat UMBC, 19-10, in the America East Conference men’s lacrosse championship game.

UMBC, which entered the game 4-1 in its last five contests, finished the season at 7-8.

Senior attackmen Joe Lustgarten (Wading River, N.Y./Shoreham-Wading River) and Scott Jones (Port Coquitlam, B.C./Terry Fox) and junior face-off specialist Phil Poe (Harwood, Md./DeMatha) were selected to the All-Tournament Team.

Jones led the Retrievers with four goals vs. Albany and amassed seven goals in the two games.

There were four ties and lead changes in the first half until Albany closed the stanza on a 5-0 run. UMBC trailed, 3-2, after one quarter and 4-2 just 34 seconds into the second, but went on a 3-0 run to take a 5-4 lead with 9:18 to play in the frame.

Freshman midfielder Nate Lewnes (Arnold, Md./St. Mary’s) started the surge with an extra-man goal at the 12:41 mark, and Jones tied the score, converting a feed from senior middie Nick Doub (Annapolis, Md./St. Mary’s) at the 10:04 mark. Senior attackman Matt Gregoire (Crofton, Md./South River) got inside and beat UA keeper Blaze Riordan from a tough angle to put UMBC back out in front at 5-4 with 9:18 to play in the half.

After a time out, Albany tied the game 42 seconds later, starting the 5-0 surge. Albany outshot UMBC, 31-15 in the first 30 minutes, and despite nine saves by DiRito, the Danes led by four at the break.

UMBC came out quickly in the third quarter, winning the opening face-off after a loose ball battled and cashed in when freshman Pat Young (Ewing, N.J./Christchurch School) scored with just 39 seconds elapsed. But the Danes went on a 4-0 run before Retriever senior midfielder Dave Brown (Coopersburg, Pa./The Hill School) stopped the surge and cut the deficit to 13-7 with 4:25 remaining.

But the Retrievers could get no close in the final 19 minutes of the game and fell to 3-2 in America East title games.

In his final game along with 13 other seniors, Brown scored a goal and added two assists. Lewnes scored twice, while Doub added a pair of helpers.

Tournament Most Valuable Player, Albany sophomore attackman Lyle Thompson, led all scorers with three goals and six assists.

Albany outshot UMBC, 49-36, and DiRito finished the game with 10 saves. Albany freshman netminder Blaze Riordan made nine saves for his side.

The Danes converted on 4-of-6 extra-man opportunities, while UMBC was 1-of-2.

“I would like to thank our seniors for the great job they have done over the past four years, especially this year,” head coach Don Zimmerman said. “The guys are disappointed, but they should hold their heads up high. It’s a great group of guys, they work hard and they represent the school in a tremendous fashion.”

UMBC hopes to punch NCAA Tournament ticket Saturday

Posted on 03 May 2013 by WNST Staff

UMBC will play for its first America East Conference title in men’s lacrosse since 2009 when they face top-seeded Albany on Saturday, May 4 at Stony Brook’s LaValle Stadium. The Retrievers and Great Danes will face-off at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday in front of a national television audience on ESPNU and the WatchESPN app. Mark Dixon and Ryan Flanagan have the call of the fourth meeting between UMBC and Albany in the title game.

Trailing 13-9 with less than six minutes remaining, UMBC junior face-off specialist Phil Poe won the final six draws of the game, and senior attackman Joe Lustgarten scored three of the Retrievers’ six goals in a span of 5:12 to spearhead a rally which resulted in a 15-13 UMBC victory. Lustgarten, who led UMBC with four goals and two assists, scored the game-winning goal with 55 seconds remaining, while Poe won 11 of 12 fourth-quarter draws and 22 of 29 in the contest.

Twelfth-ranked Albany (12-4) faced a tough out in No. 4 and host Stony Brook, but came away with a 17-15 victory in the nightcap of Thursday’s thrilling action at LaValle Stadium. The Great Danes defeated UMBC, 16-10, on April 19.

LAST TIME WE MET: Matt Gregoire scored a career-best five points, but the Retrievers fell, 16-10, to tenth-ranked Albany at John Fallon Field on April 19.Gregoire scored back-to-back goals late in the third quarter and early in the fourth to bring the Retrievers to within 11-9 with 10:48 remaining. But the high-powered Great Danes reeled off three straight goals in a span of 2:12 to take its biggest lead of the game at 14-9 with 6:36 to play. Pat Young briefly halted the surge and cut the deficit to four goals with 5:10 to play, but the Retrievers could get no closer.

A LOOK AT THE OPPONENT: In the conference semifinals, junior attackman Ty Thompson scored three goals down the stretch as the Great Danes scored five of the game’s final six goals to seal the 17-15 victory over Stony Brook. Ty Thompson finished with four goals and an assist while his teammate and cousin Lyle, the America East Player of the Year, had three goals and three assists to up his season-point total to 99.

 

ALL-TIME SERIES: UMBC leads the all-time series, 10-6, but Albany has won the last two contests. The two teams will meet for the seventh time in ten league seasons in the championships. The Great Danes have won four of the previous six meetings, although the Retrievers have won two of the three title game match-ups (2006, 2008).

UMBC tops Binghamton to reach America East Tournament

Posted on 27 April 2013 by WNST Staff

BALTIMORE- UMBC freshman midfielder Pat Young scored his fourth goal with 1:18 remaining and the host Retrievers outlasted Binghamton, 10-9, to clinch a berth in the America East Tournament for the tenth consecutive year.

UMBC (6-7, 3-2 America East) has participated in the four-team championship in all ten of its league campaigns. The Bearcats were eliminated from tournament play and finish the season at 5-9, 1-4.

The 2013 America East Championship will open at LaValle Stadium in Stony Brook, N.Y., with the semifinal contests taking place on Thursday, May 2 and the title game occurring on May 4.

Young, who led the Retrievers with four scores, scored his third game-winning goal of the season. He also recorded the game-winner with less than three minutes remaining in a 13-12 win at Stony Brook on April 13.

“It was a typical America East game-for our conference to have five teams still in the hunt on the last week of the regular season is pretty special,“ said head coach Don Zimmerman. “It’s Senior Day, it’s emotional. It’s always a little bit of a struggle on Senior Day, but I am very proud of the team, the way they hung in there, came back from several deficits and came back in the end.”

The game was tied on eight occasions, as the Retrievers trailed by one goal six times and 8-6 late in the third quarter. The Bearcats took the lone two-goal advantage of the game on a goal by attackman Matt Springer with 18 seconds to play in the third stanza. But UMBC snatched momentum back as senior attackman/midfielder Joe Lustgarten (Wading River, N.Y./Shoreham-Wading River) netted a desperation shot with less than one second remaining in the stanza.

Young knotted the game at 8-all 2:42 into the final quarter, beating BU netminder Max Schefler low from 11 yards away. UMBC would then take its first lead of the game, as senior middie Dave Brown (Coopersburg, Pa./The Hill School) found Matt Gregoire (Crofton, Md./South River) inside and the senior attackman converted from close range with 8:55 remaining.

Binghamton’s Emmett O’Hara brought his side back to even, tallying with 3:29 remaining and the Bearcats won the ensuing draw. But BU hit the side-netting on a shot with 1:52 to play and the Retrievers cleared and called a time-out. Junior midfielder Conor Finch (Westminster, Md./Boys’ Latin) drove down the right alley and dumped a pass back to Young, who stepped into a 10-yard shot and it ticked the stick of Schefler before hitting the back of the net.

UMBC won the next face-off and never allowed the Bearcats to possess the ball in the final minute of play.

The Retrievers, now 39-13 in ten years of America East Conference play, have never lost back-to-back conference contests. UMBC improved to 22-4 at UMBC Stadium vs. AEC foes during the regular year and to 8-0 vs. Binghamton on the friendly turf in Baltimore.

Young and Springer each scored four times for their respective teams. Lustgarten added two goals and an assist for UMBC, while Gregoire recorded a pair of goals and now has 15 in league play in 2013.

Both goalkeepers excelled in the contest. UMBC sophomore Wes DiRito (Odenton, Md./DeMatha) turned away 12 Binghamton shots, while Schefler also recorded 12 saves. The Retrievers outshot the Bearcats, 35-27.
