WINCHESTER, Va. – Shenandoah University Head Men's Basketball Coach Adam Walsh announced Thursday that his program will open its 2018-19 season with an exhibition game at DI UMBC.

The 1 p.m. matchup in the UMBC Event Center be the second straight year that the two squads will meet in an exhibition contest. Last season, the Hornets trailed by just three, 43-40, early in the second half before the Retrievers pulled away for an 88-59 win

UMBC went on to win the America East championship and then shock the college basketball world with 74-54 upset of top-seeded Virginia in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament.

The Retrievers were the first-ever No. 16 seed to defeat a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament.

"The players are always excited to play a DI opponent, but to have the opportunity to take on UMBC is extra special," Walsh said.

"This is going to be a great opportunity to get out there and test ourselves against an excellent opponent."

Shenandoah officially opens its second season under Walsh' tutelage with a 7 p.m. non-league game at Mount Aloysius on Monday, November 12. The home opener is Saturday, November 17 versus Elizabethtown.
