Men’s Basketball Announces 2015-2016 Schedule

CASTINE, Maine – Maine Maritime Academy Men's Basketball is pleased to announce their 2015-2016 schedule.

"Our 2015-2016 schedule is just another example of how quickly we continue to upgrade our basketball program," said Head Men's Basketball Coach David Muchnick.

The Mariners will open up the 2015-2016 season on the road against the University of Southern Maine on November 14 at 4:00 p.m., and will travel to New York to take on SUNY Maritime and The United States Merchant Marine Academy on November 21 and 22, as part of the Inaugural Mariner Classic.

"Beginning a 'Mariner Classic' with SUNY-Maritime and Kings Point gives our players a tremendous opportunity to compete against other student-athletes who share the same academic rigors as we do, in similar learning communities," said Muchnick.

Maine Maritime Academy will open up North Atlantic Conference (NAC) play on December 1, when they host Thomas College inside of Smith Gymnasium, and December 5 at Husson University.

During winter break, the Mariners will compete at the Garnet Holiday Tournament hosted by Swarthmore College, where they will take on Wells College and either Swarthmore or Earlham.

"The opportunity to not only go to New York for two games but also to Swarthmore College in Philadelphia gives our vastly improving program tremendous Mid-Atlantic recruiting exposure," Muchnick said, "It also allows for diverse cultural and educational experiences for our student-athletes."

The Mariners will host non-conference opponents, Bowdoin College on December 8 and Colby College on January 19.

"Having three very successful programs from the state of Maine on our non-league schedule in Southern Maine, Bowdoin, and Colby will allow us to compete against the very best Division III schools in a state that tremendously values and follows college basketball," Muchnick said.

Maine Maritime will travel to Johnson State on January 16, a team they swept last season, before hosting the Badgers on February 5 inside of Smith Gymnasium. The Mariners will close out the regular season at Thomas College on February 20.

"As the NAC continues to improve from top to bottom, the ultimate goal is to put ourselves in the best position possible to have the opportunity to cut the nets down and be the last team standing," added Muchnick, "Our players, coaches and support staff are #AllAboard and looking forward to the blank canvas of the 2015-2016 season."

In May, Coach Muchnick announced his first recruiting class; Alik Espling (Orono, Maine), Dennis "DJ" Harris (Vallejo, California.), Adam Richardson (Old Town, Maine), Andre Paul (Calais, Maine) and Alexander Neill (Augusta, Maine).

Last season in the team's final 10 games, the Mariners swept an opponent for the first time since 2010-2011, and lost the other eight games by single digits, on their way to a 3-22 overall record.

"Preseason rankings and other people's opinions have no bearing on our potential success this season," said Head Coach David Muchnick, "Our players and coaching staff are looking forward to building on the strong foundation we laid last season."

Maine Maritime Academy will open up NAC play on December 1, when they host Thomas College inside of Smith Gymnasium, and December 5 at Husson University.

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Senior Zachary Radcliffe, two-year captain of the Maine Maritime Academy Men's Basketball team, has been selected as a nominee for the 2016 Allstate NABC Good Works Team®, for the second-consecutive year.

This prestigious community service award recognizes a distinguished group of student-athletes who have demonstrated a commitment to enriching the lives of others and contributing to the greater good in their communities.

Radcliffe, the only representative from the North Atlantic Conference, joins 153 men's basketball players from around the country.

"Zachary is the epitome of what Maine Maritime Basketball represents and what it means to be a successful Division III student-athlete," said Maine Maritime Academy Head Coach David Muchnick, "His selfless demeanor extends to every aspect of who he is as a person and is an outstanding ambassador for our program both in the Castine Learning Community and Maine Maritime Academy."

The Rumford, Maine native, volunteers his time with Special Olympics, local food pantries, and as a coach for youth basketball and baseball teams. As a member of the men's basketball team at Maine Maritime Academy, Radcliffe has been involved with several initiatives at the local Adams Elementary School, including Dribble Kids.

"In future years of our program Zachary's lasting legacy will continue to be well known as the standard by which our players and coaches will strive to attain. I could not be prouder of Zachary's accomplishments and how he exemplifies Maine Maritime Basketball," Muchnick added.

From the 154 NABC nominees and 103 WBCA nominees, a distinguished voting panel will select two 10-member teams comprised of five student-athletes from the NCAA® Division I level and five student-athletes from NCAA Divisions II, III and the NAIA. The final roster of 20 award recipients will be unveiled in February.
