Last Second Shots Don’t Fall As Men’s Basketball Lose to James Madison 53-51

leave a comment »

In the final 12 seconds both Chris De La Rosa and Matt Spadafora had chances to tie the game, but neither of their shots fell as the Retrievers fell 53-51, and to an 0-5 start.

While Robbie Jackson led the team in both points and rebounds for a second straight game with 13 and seven respectively. He also blocked two James Madison shots. He only played 19 minutes due to foul trouble. If UMBC wants to be successful he absolutely has to stay in the game. It will come in time because he has only played five games in over a year, but he has to stop the early fouls, and quick.

Stand Up, Cheer, Be a Real Student/Fan Section

with one comment

Even thought I was sitting at the press table watching the game and taking notes on Tuesday I couldn’t help but notice the student section two feet away from me during the game. For the entire first half the crowd was silent and sitting. The real student section was in the upper level of the arena. They were standing. They were yelling. They were being real fans.
