What to Know
The UMBC Retrievers have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with the UMass Lowell River Hawks and are hoping to record their first win since Feb. 8 of 2020. UMBC and UMass Lowell are set to clash at 1 p.m. ET March 6 at Chesapeake Employers Insurance Arena in the first round of the America East Conference Tourney. The Retrievers are out to keep their six-game home win streak alive.
UMBC beat the Binghamton Bearcats 78-68 last Tuesday.
Meanwhile, UMass Lowell was able to grind out a solid victory over the Hartford Hawks this past Thursday, winning 83-73.
Barring any buzzer beaters, UMBC is expected to win a tight contest Sunday. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.
When the two teams last met earlier in the regular season, the Retrievers lost to the River Hawks on the road by a decisive 88-71 margin. Maybe UMBC will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
