BALTIMORE (AP) — Max Curran scored 16 points and grabbed eight rebounds, Nolan Gerrity and Joe Sherburne each added 14 points, and UMBC hit a school-record 19 3-pointers en route to a 98-59 win over Division-III Messiah on Saturday.

Gerrity, the lone starter to not make at least two 3-pointers, was 6 of 7 from the field and added nine boards and two blocks for UMBC (6-1).

UMBC scored the game's first 14 points, but Messiah pulled to 21-16 midway through the first half. The Retrievers closed on a 31-8 run to take a 52-24 lead at intermission and coasted through the second half.

Logan Long led Messiah, which used the game as an exhibition, with 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting, including 3 of 3 on 3-pointers. Neil Murren added eight points for the Falcons.

The Retrievers shot 57.6 percent from beyond the arc (19-33) and 58.3 percent overall. Sherburne made four from deep, and Rodney Elliot and K.J Maura each hit three.
