Maine Maritime Drops Season Opener to Nor’Easters

BIDDEFORD, Maine – The Mariners held the Nor'Easters to a program history best 66-points, but fell in their season opener 66-41 in the Ramada Roundball Invitational on Saturday (Nov. 15) at the Harold Alfond Forum.

Nick Holt (Ellsworth, Maine) scored a team-high 11 points off the bench to lead the Mariners, while Brian Goda (Portsmouth, N.H.) picked up a career and game-high 15 rebounds.

Maine Maritime used a Goda jump shot to close UNE's early lead to 7-6, but the Nor'Easters added eight unanswered points before the Mariners could respond and the hosts closed out the first half with a 27-14 lead.

Holt's three-point jumper closed the UNE lead to 40-29 with 10:38 remaining in the second half, but once again the Nor'Easters went on an eight-point stretch to extend their lead 48-29 and went on to claim the 66-41 victory.

Sophomore Jean-Luc Parker led all scorers with 15 points to pace the Nor'easters. Junior Devin Thompson contributed all his 12 points in the second half while adding 11 rebounds, seven assists and six steals. Sam Thomas scored a career-high 12 points on 6-for-11 shooting to go with six boards.

Junior Zachary Radcliffe (Rumford, Maine) added seven points off the bench, while sophomore Dylan Stevens (Wells, Maine) picked up six points and six rebounds.

"I am pleased with our effort today on the glass and in the paint against perhaps the biggest team we will face all season," said Head Coach David Muchnick.

UNE (1-0) advances to the finals of its own event and will face Middlebury College tomorrow at 2 p.m. The Panthers defeated Mitchell College, 101-71, in Saturday's other first-round game. Maine Maritime (0-1) and Mitchell will square off in the day's first game at 12 p.m.

"We have another quality opponent tomorrow in Mitchell College, who is very athletic and exceptionally well-coached," added Muchnick, "We must execute better offensively to give ourselves an opportunity to win, and that starts with taking care of the basketball."

The last time the Mariners held the Nor'Easters to 70 points or less was in 1993 when they fell 70-57.

Maine Maritime Falls in Battle of the Mariners at the Ramada Roundball Invitational

BIDDEFORD, Maine – Mitchell College overpowered Maine Maritime Academy to take the 95-73 victory in the consolation game of the Ramada Roundball Invitational hosted by the University of New England at the Harold Alfond Forum.

Sophomore Kyle Boucher (Wayne, Maine) paced four players in double figures with 18 points to go with nine rebounds for Maine Maritime. Sophomore Dylan Stevens (Wells, Maine) was 5-for-7 from the floor to finish with 14 points, while sophomore Dylan Price (Madison, Maine) scored 12 and first-year Tyler Thayer (Hermon, Maine) grabbed 11. Thayer, who added 10 boards to post a double-double, was named to the all-tournament team.

Parris Hill, who was named to the all-tournament team for Mitchell College (1-1), was 16 of 27 from the floor with 36 points, grabbed nine rebounds and added six steals. Junior Donavan McClean contributed 30 points, making 13 of 24 from the floor, including 3 of 10 from beyond the arc. He also added three of Mitchell's 19 steals. Junior Devonta Mosley came off the bench to score 10 points on 5-for-6 accuracy from the floor.

"There aren't many teams in the country that can win with turning the ball over as much as we did today," said Head Coach David Muchnick.

Maine Maritime turned the ball over 30 times, while only forcing 18 Mitchell turnovers. Both teams shot well from the floor, with Mitchell making 55.6 percent (40 of 72) of its tries, and Maine Maritime converting 49.2 percent (29 of 59).

"I was very proud of our effort, particularly in the second half today. Our guys fought extremely hard. We will continue to fight. We will get this thing turned around," Muchnick added.

Maine Maritime (0-2) will return home to host the University of Maine at Presque Isle this Wednesday (Nov. 19) night at 7:00 PM, and the University of Maine at Augusta this Friday (Nov. 21) night also at 7:00 PM.
