By Corey Johns, So Much Sports Baltimore — Coming off perhaps the most physically grueling game of their season just two days prior (Towson), UMBC put together a masterful performance against the excessively fast-paced Citadel Bulldogs to earn a record-breaking 120-111 victory in double-overtime.
Will Brown called Saturday’s Albany practice “the worst of the season” and said he was extremely concerned how his team would react against UMBC Sunday afternoon.
Sam Rowley added, “I think that’s the source of our success is our bench. It goes beyond just the games. At practice, as Coach was saying, those guys took it to us starters at practice, and there’s no excuses for the starting five feeling sorry for themselves, and if you rest or take it easy, they’re going to beat you. Having them making us better every day in practice has been huge for us.”
