Not entirely surprising. UMBC probably had this one circled as their super bowl. UA got up big, relaxed (as usual), then UMBC came out hot and that guy Loomis was unconscious. Some lousy defense left Blaze exposed and he had an off day. So they win a pressure cooker which in a way is better prep for what lies ahead. Marr cannot be pleased with the second half effort.

Way too sloppy after leading 10-2. Very surprised that Marr did not get across the importance of this game. Not for America East seeding since that was wrapped up but what the game means in the polls and the NCAA tourney. A loss would have meant us dropping from #5 to #10 or worse. Then even with an AE title, it would mean a road game in the first round. And a worse case senario would be an AE tourney loss which could mean no NCAA's at all as an at-large. Maybe this game wakes them up.

To some extent those rankings are largely irrelevant at this point..at least in relation to Stony Brook. An auto-bid through the conference tournament would (likely) give us another win over Stony Brook..pushing our ratings even higher and I think locking-up a home game in the first round. While I think we've all but guaranteed ourselves an auto-bid with our regular season play..a loss in the conference tournament would still leave us a bit low in some of these ratings and on the bubble for a home game..maybe even outside looking in.
