#WNSTSweet16 list highlights Baltimore’s best ever college hoopsters

March 04, 2014 | Drew Forrester

#16 – Jay Greene, UMBC


Honestly, I’d like to put Jay Greene higher on the list.  I’m not ashamed to admit he’s my favorite local college basketball of all-time.  It’s a tribute to him that he’s on this list — deservedly, too — but this was about as high as I could put him.

He the was engine behind the 2007-2008 UMBC team that made the NCAA tournament and remains the school’s all time leader in games played and assists.

He’s currently an Assistant Coach at UMBC, where he’s helping to return the Retrievers to the glory days he experienced as a junior and senior.

Here’s Jay’s UMBC biography with all the important stuff.

    Great list. I would offer a few other names for an honorable mention list: Roger Dickens (TSU), Pat McKinley (TSU), Brian Matthews (TSU), Ronald Smith (U of B), Tony Carter (Coppin St), Yarborough Roberts (Morgan St), and Teddy Jones (U of B).

    Excellent List and research, Drew. Struck a chord of many memories of greatness. My only honorable mention would be, Maurice “Mo” Cannon (Loyola College).
