    CATONSVILLE, Md. (AP) -- Brian Hodges scored 20 points, Chris Pugh added 15 and Maryland-Baltimore County ended a three-game losing streak by beating Hartford 73-68 on Thursday night.

    Justin Fry added 14 points and Thomas Young 12 for the Retrievers (7-12, 3-3 America East), who had dropped four straight at home. Jay Greene had 10 points and Mike Housman grabbed 11 rebounds for UMBC.

    Joe Zeglinski and Michael Turner scored 19 points apiece for the Hawks (9-9, 3-3), who have lost three of four. Bo Taylor added 16 points.

    Hartford, the conference's worst 3-point shooting team, hit 10 of 22 attempts from beyond the arc. UMBC, ranked next to last in that category, was 10-for-21, with Pugh matching a career high with five 3s.

    After the Hawks tied the score at 36 on Alex Zimnickas' strong inside move with 18:25 left in regulation, UMBC responded with a 16-5 run for a 52-41 lead. Young scored six points during the burst and Hodges and Pugh hit consecutive 3-pointers.

    Hodges scored 10 points in the opening 20 minutes and UMBC led 22-12 when Young hit a fadeaway jumper with 7:04 remaining in the first half.

    But the Hawks, the worst 3-point shooting team in the conference, was 5-for-9 from beyond the arc in the first half and trailed 36-32 at halftime.
