Loyola, Coppin, Towson, Mason on UMBC hoops’ non-conference schedule

Posted on 31 July 2012 by WNST Staff

UMBC will open the 2012-13 men’s basketball campaign at the University of Pennsylvania and play six non-conference home games before America East Conference competition, it was announced today by head coach Randy Monroe.

The Retrievers open the season in Philadelphia, taking on the Quakers on Friday, Nov. 9.  They open the home schedule three days later, when they host Eastern (Pa.) University on Monday, Nov. 12. Eastern is coached by former UMBC assistant coach Nate Stewart.

UMBC plays the first of six games vs. local rivals on Wednesday, Nov. 14 when they face 2012 MAAC champion and NCAA Tournament qualifier Loyola (Md.) at Reitz Arena.  The Retrievers host Towson (Dec. 1), American (Dec. 6) and Coppin State (Dec. 12), and travel short distances to George Mason (Dec. 4) and Mount St. Mary’s (Dec. 29).

Long-time rival Central Connecticut State (Nov. 20) and Canisius (Dec. 15) also will visit the RAC Arena  in late 2012.

UMBC will also visit two additional squads that competed in the NCAA Tournament last season.  The Retrievers close the month of November at Marquette on Nov. 28 and travel to Norfolk State on Dec. 9. The Retrievers also visit the Chicago area when they play DePaul on Dec. 22.

“Needless to say, we are very excited about our non-conference schedule,” head coach Randy Monroe said.  “We are going to face some very competitive teams and feel like these games will prepare us for the always-tough America East Conference.”

UMBC’s America East slate will be announced later this summer.

Notes:  The Retrievers also opened vs. Penn in 2011-12 and dropped a 59-45 decision… UMBC has not faced George Mason since the 1999-00 season and Mount St. Mary’s since the 2002-03 campaign… They will face Eastern (Pa.), Norfolk State and DePaul for the first time… UMBC and Towson will meet for the 56th time- the Tigers are UMBC’s most frequently-played opponent.

2012 UMBC Men’s Basketball Non-Conference Schedule

November

Fri. 9 at Penn, TBA; Mon. 12 Eastern (Pa.) 7:00 p.m.; Wed. 14 at Loyola (Md.), TBA, Tue. 20 Central Connecticut State, 7:30 p.m.; Mon. 26 at Marquette, TBA

Home Finale For UMBC Wednesday Against Boston U

Posted on 22 February 2012 by WNST Staff

UMBC plays its final home game of the 2011-12 season when they host the Boston University Terriers on Wed., Feb. 22. The Retrievers’ lone senior, post Jake Wasco, will be honored in pregame ceremonies. The Retrievers did win the match-up with Boston U. at the RAC Arena last season, but were soundly beaten at Case Gymnasium on Jan.  24.  Tip-off time will be at 7:05 p.m. and the broadcast is available at www.umbcretrievers.tv.

RETRIEVER UPDATE: After allowing 66 and 56 points and holding UNH and Binghamton to 40 percent or below from the field, UMBC (4-23, 3-11) could not follow up, and fell at Canisius, 73-66, in Buffalo, N.Y. on Feb. 18.

Soph. forward Chase Plummer (15.4 ppg, 7.5 rpg) scored 24 points and added a career-high 14 rebounds and is putting together one of the top sophomore seasons in UMBC’s 26-year Division I history.

Boston U. has dropped two straight, but has third place sewn up in America East Conference play.  Senior guard Darryl Partin has earned or shared single-game scoring honors for the Terriers in the last ten games and is averaging 19.8 points per game.

WHO’S UP NEXT:  UMBC plays its final game of the 2011-12 regular season when the Retrievers travel to Vermont to take on the Catamounts on Sat., Feb. 25.

I’m not really a Blake Shelton fan.That said, I wish I could tell you I didn’t enjoy this tune…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGoiiwxTWeE

I am particularly bitter that my trip to Indy this weekend will prevent me from getting to the Cope show Friday night. If you’ve never seen him, shame on you…

What’s happening in Silver Spring won’t ACTUALLY be a GNR show, but it doesn’t mean you can’t sing along…

Just in case you forgot, Flogging Molly is the one that ISN’T Dropkick Murphys…

Can someone ask Jeffrey Ross if he’ll come on my show this week and make fun of me? It’s that good…

Also funny? Jim Gaffigan. It’s just a very different type of funny…

Top 10 Baseball Distractions

Posted on 07 February 2012 by Glenn Clark

Honorable Mention: Women’s College Basketball-Miami @ Maryland (Sunday 2:30pm from Comcast Center live on ESPN2); High School Basketball: Dulaney @ Perry Hall (Wednesday 6:30pm), Towson @ Perry Hall (Friday 7pm); Baltimore Ravens Regional Scouting Combine (Saturday 1 Winning Drive Owings Mills)

10. Anthrax/Testament (Tuesday 7pm Rams Head Live), Black Stone Cherry/Cavo (Thursday 6:30pm Rams Head Live), Umphrey’s McGee (Sunday 7pm Rams Head Live); Wayne Static (Wednesday 6pm Recher Theatre); Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe Presents the Rolling Stones’ album Sticky Fingers in it’s entirety (Friday 8pm Baltimore Soundstage); George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic (Tuesday 7pm 9:30 Club), The Darkness (Wednesday 7pm 9:30 Club), Jack’s Mannequin (Friday & Saturday 6:30pm 9:30 Club); Eric Benet (Tuesday & Wednesday 7:30pm Birchmere); The Fray “Scars and Stories” and Van Halen “A Different Kind of Truth” available in stores/on iTunes (Tuesday)

I probably enjoy Cavo a little bit more than I’m willing to admit publicly…

I both enjoy Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe…

AND I enjoy the Rolling Stones’ album Sticky Fingers. So I’ve got that going for me…

I really don’t care…at all…what you think. The new song by The Fray is freaking awesome.

9. Mike Epps (Friday 7:30pm & 10pm D.A.R. Constitution Hall); Nick Cannon (Thursday-Sunday Baltimore Comedy Factory), Alonzo Bodden (Monday 8pm Baltimore Comedy Factory); “Safe House” opens in theaters (Friday); “A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas” available on DVD/Blu-Ray (Tuesday); Wanda Sykes (Friday 8pm Strathmore); Motor Trend International Auto Show (Thursday-Sunday Baltimore Convention Center); Sex at the Zoo (Thursday 6pm Maryland Zoo in Baltimore); Wishful Drinking feat. Carrie Fisher (Tuesday-Sunday France Merrick Performing Arts Center-Hippodrome)

This is a bizarre combination of events for sure. Me personally, I’d watch Denzel Washington act his way out of a cardboard box, so I’m excited for Safe House.  Of course, there’s no way humanly possible it’s as good as Training Day (language NSFW)…

I don’t know if Eli Manning would be willing to donate his new car to the event at the Convention Center this weekend, but I’d certainly appreciate the opportunity to drool over the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Centennial Edition…
