GAME RECAP

Just days after 16th seeded UMBC ran the number one overall seed Virginia out of the gym, the Retrievers fell back to Earth against Kansas State. While they weren’t able to shoot out of their minds, the Retrievers held their own against K- State, playing their hard nosed defense and quick offense. 

The Retrievers jumped out to a 10-2 lead before their fast paced style of play and media frenzy caught up to them. They gave up that lead within five minutes, but kept themselves in the game, teasing a comeback. 

The Retrievers kept themselves in the game until the very end. They were within three points with just over two minutes to go, until their live by the three mentality fell to their heavy legs, as Kansas State capitalized on a few turnovers and sprinted up the court for layups.

PLAYER OF THE GAME

K- State guard Barry Brown led all players with 18 points. He was 0-1 from three, but 8-8 from the free throw line. He also had 2 rebounds and 2 steals in the victory.

Hey guys, my name’s Max Cohen. I’m a huge Arizona sports fan. I love the Wildcats, Diamondbacks, Cardinals, Phoenix Rising FC, and US Soccer. I also love Tottenham Hotspur and Borrusia Dortmund. I grew up playing baseball, basketball, and soccer, and hurting myself during all of them. I also play guitar. I love rock music. Some of my favorite bands are Bruce Springsteen, U2, The Beatles, Foo Fighters, and Dispatch. I’m a freshman at the University of Arizona. I’m majoring in a cool program that combines politics, philosophy, economics, and law. Talk to me about Arizona basketball and football because I never shut up about it.
