The University of Baltimore School of Law trounced its cross-town rivals at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law in what was billed as the first-ever basketball competition between Maryland’s two law schools.

The score in the April 16 game was 83-65.

Outgoing UB Student Bar Association President Kush Patel reports that under the direction of player-coach Professor Phillip Closius the team ran like a “well-oiled machine.”

The UB team’s MVP was Kristen Mack, who did not leave the court the entire game.

“Maryland had no answer for her,” Patel said.

Mack, a joint J.D./MBA student, played at the University of South Carolina Upstate (Division 1) and at Mars Hill University (Division 2) before playing semi-pro for the Tampa Bay X-Factor. She had a pro contract in Germany but backed out due to an injury — and started law school at UB instead.

*Reports from readers indicate the law schools competed on the court in the early ’90s.
