The Great Danes have matched their best-ever seven game start at the Division I level. They also began 5-2 during the 2008-09 season.

Also Monday, UMBC trailed Marquette by only four at the half Monday, but was outscored 51-22 after the break and fell to 1-3 after a 79-46 loss. Preseason all-league choice Chase Plummer led the Retrievers with 12 points.
