UMBC Edges Binghamton 61-58 In A-East Action

VESTAL, N.Y. (AP) — Brian Neller scored all of his 18 points on 3-point baskets, leading Maryland-Baltimore County to a 61-58 win over Binghamton Wednesday night in America East action.

Neller, 6 for 13 from beyond the arc, got help from Chase Plummer, who scored 17 points on 8-of-12 shooting.

The Retrievers (5-16, 3-5) led by 27-26 at halftime. But they held on as the Bearcats (3-18, 1-7) lost for the 14th time in their last 15 games.

Jordan Reed scored a game-high 21 points for Binghamton, but that wasn’t quite enough. Not even with Jimmy Gray’s 11 points.

Ryan Cook’s second trey with 3:06 remaining gave UMBC the lead for good, 55-53, with 3:06 remaining. Binghamton’s Roland Brown missed the second of two free throws to cut the lead to one. UMBC held on.

The Retrievers were a decisive 10 for 24 on treys. Binghamton went 4 for 20, with three by Gray.
