UMBC players banned from locker room for poor playAssociated Press



CATONSVILLE, Md. -- Maryland-Baltimore County's men's basketball team has been indefinitely banished from its locker room, punishment by coach Randy Monroe for a subpar effort in a 75-58 home loss to New Hampshire on Wednesday.


UMBC spokesman Steve Levy confirmed Sunday that Monroe has not permitted the Retrievers to use their usual locker room since Thursday.


Instead, team members are dressing in the courtside media workroom, which was also to be used as a meeting room during halftime of Sunday's home game against Hartford. Additionally, players have been forbidden to wear apparel bearing the school's name.


The Retrievers (6-9) had been 5-1 at the RAC Arena before losing to New Hampshire (5-11), a team that had been averaging 56.6 points per game. Monroe, usually an animated presence on the sideline, spent most of the game sitting dejectedly in a folding chair.

Surely he has good intentions, but I don't think the team will respond well to this behavior over the course of the season. A locker room is a pretty sacred place - the team probably spends more time there than in their classes. You can't take that away and still expect the team to believe in you all season.
