PressBox's second annual Best Of  is here, featuring more than 60 honorees, including best upset, best newcomer, best comeback, best surprise and much more.

Best New Facility

If UMBC had never even won the America East Tournament, 2018 would have still been a monumental year for the program.

The school opened the new $67 million UMBC Event Center in February, a spectacular 5,000-seat building that has also hosted concerts, professional wrestling, the circus and more.

What's incredible is the opening was one of the most important moments in local sports all year and also maybe not even one of the top three moments for UMBC this year.
