You’ve heard of UMBC before. Those four letters have only gotten hazier in people’s minds since the first Friday night of this year’s NCAA Tournament, when the Retrievers became the first 16-seed to defeat a 1-seed, and will likely only continue to.
But you’ve got to start somewhere and that historic upset of Virginia has UMBC an opening night game against Marquette at the big arena at 9 pm.
Really, the Retrievers started this program build-up long before the upset. Ryan Odom is just three years removed from coaching D-II but in his first full season at UMBC two years ago he led his team to twenty-one wins and the CIT semifinal. Last season was another big step forward, obviously.
Now, UMBC must be considered the top program in the America East, though it will be without over the twenty points per game Jairus Lyles poured in last season. The offense may work more around big man Arkel Lamar, the only double-digit scorer returning from last season.
Marquette Golden Eagles
Steve Wojciechowski won twenty-one games last season, the most in his four full seasons as Marquette’s Head Basketball Coach. The Golden Eagles missed the NCAA Tournament, however, after it snapped a three-year drought in 2017.
The Golden Eagles have won an average of just twenty games over the last three seasons (20, 19, 21) and are looking to break though this season.
Markus Howard and Sam Hauser both return for their junior seasons after huge years a season ago shooting the three-ball. Howard is particularly dangerous and twice hit eleven threes in a game last year. He’ll be a Player of the Year candidate.
Alongside Howard and Hauser are two seniors and another junior. I’m keeping an eye on ‘Quette this year.

Free UMBC Retrievers vs. Marquette Golden Eagles NCAAB Prediction: Marquette gets off to a good start.
These early games are always a little blind but I like Marquette this season and it sure seems like UMBC has lost a lot from last year’s team. So I go Marquette at home to cover.
