UMBC 80, Hartford 63 -Senior guard Jay Greene continued his torrid week, leading four Retrievers in double figures with 22 points as UMBC won its third straight, over host Hartford.

Darryl Proctor added 20 points, and Chauncey Gilliam (Hammond) scored 18 as UMBC (12-13, 6-7 America East) won for the first time after five losses at Hartford (6-21, 2-11).

Greene hit five of six three-point attempts and seven of nine from the free-throw line, following up his 36 points in a win over New Hampshire on Tuesday.
