Jack Schwietz has always felt like he was a part of the University of Maryland-Baltimore County basketball family.
The 6-foot-5, 210-pound freshmen guard officially joined older brother San with the Retrievers this season, playing in 10 games and averaging just a shade under a basket a night at 1.7 points, according to ESPN.
Schwietz’s biggest game came just after Christmas in UMBC’s 98-48 rout of Centenary, where he had 10 points, three rebounds and two assists in just 16 minutes of action.
Having the chance to play alongside his older brother meant more highlights than he can count for the Findlay Prep grad. The two are the first set of brothers to compete at UMBC since Jeff and Kenny Reynolds back in the late 1980s.
Schwietz told the school’s website he settled on UMBC “because it was a second home to me when I first walked on campus…and I would also get the opportunity to play with my brother.”
As a senior at Findlay, Schwietz averaged 12 points and shot 55.6 percent from the floor and 45 percent on three pointers.
