The Retrievers will take on the River Hawks in a weekend matinee on Saturday, February 16th at the UMBC Event Center. Tip off will be at 1:00 pm as it will kick off Youth Basketball Day.
UMBC is also celebrating Alumni Day and two special anniversaries will be celebrated. The 40th anniversary of the 1978-79 team, which ended the year ranked No. 6 in the nation in NCAA Division II, and the 20th anniversary of 1998-99 Northeast Conference regular season champions, will be celebrated. Members of those teams will be honored at halftime.
This will be a rematch of last years America East Quarterfinals where UMBC was able to overcome UMass Lowell, 89-77, which was apart of their historical run. The Retrievers were able to come back after an 11 point halftime deficit, in which they outscored the River Hawks by 23 in the second half.
