Facing the Huskies for the second consecutive season in an exhibition game at Hill Gymnasium, the Division I Black Bears bounced back from the 78-73 defeat at the hands of USM on November 11, 2014. As an exhibition, the game does not affect either teams' record.

Eke was 4-for-7 from the field and 9-for-11 from the free throw line to lead a solid team effort by the Black Bears who shot 55.9 percent (38-for-68) from the field. Freshman Issac Vann (Bridgeport, Conn./Bunnell) added 15 points on 5-for-9 shooting, including a pair of threes, while senior Till Gloger (Bochum, Germany/Paderborn Baskets) and freshman Illija Stojiljkovic (Nis, Serbia/Pravno-Poslovna skola Nis) each added 12 points. Junior Garet Beal (Beal's Island, Maine/Jonesport-Beals) and freshman Lavar Harewood (Brooklyn, N.Y./Brooks) each scored 11 points.

Southern Maine junior Atencio Martin (Kittery, Maine/Traip Academy) scored 14 points to lead the Huskies knocking down six from the field. Classmate Jose Novchanthavong (Westbrook, Maine) tossed in nine points and added three assists and a steal. Sophomore Cam Scott (Hampden, Maine/Hampden Academy) added eight points drilling 2-of-3 from three-point range.

Southern Maine fell behind Black Bears 47-17 in the first half, shooting an ice-cold 4-for-36 from the field. Conversely, UMaine rolled to a 19-for-35 effort in the opening half, including five three-pointers.

Southern Maine battled back in the second half competing on both ends of the floor. The Huskies put up 41 second half points shooting an outstanding 42.5 percent from the field led by eight each from Martin and Scott, while senior Jacob Littlefield (Mechanic Falls, Maine/Poland) scored six points in the second half finding his range from three-point territory.

Southern Maine opens its 2015-2016 regular season on Saturday, November 14 (4:00 p.m.), hosting Maine Maritime Academy. UMaine hosts Husson University on Saturday (2:00 p.m.) in its next contest.

Balanced Scoring Leads Southern Maine Over Maine Maritime 82-50

GORHAM, Maine – Junior Fred Knight (Hampden, Maine/Hampden Academy) and senior Aaron Toman (Gardiner, Maine) each scored 10 points to lead the University of Southern Maine Huskies to a season-opening 82-50 win over the Maine Maritime Academy Mariners in a non-conference men's basketball game Saturday afternoon at Hill Gymnasium.

Trailing by 30 to open the second half, Maine Maritime trimmed its deficit to 23, 57-34, with 10:58 riding the hot hand of sophomore Brendan Newcomb (Holden, Maine/Brewer) who finished with a game-high 19 points, including a 5-for-10 effort from three. It was as close as the Mariners would get however as USM cruised to the win.

USM freshman Eric Hoogterp (Old Town, Maine) tossed in nine points, while junior Zach Leal (York, Maine) and sophomore Isaiah Stone-Patterson (Rockland, Maine/Oceanside) each added eight points. Stone-Patterson had a career-high six assists and added three steals in a solid floor game.

Newcomb was the only player in double digits for the Mariners. Sophomore Tyler Thayer (Hermon, Maine) added nine points and four assists, and junior Dylan Stevens (Wells, Maine) added eight points.

Southern Maine Downs Colby-Sawyer 98-89

NASHUA, N.H. – Five different players scored in double figures as the University of Southern Maine Huskies used a 54-point second half to defeat the Colby-Sawyer College Chargers 98-89 in the second game of the 23rd Annual Rivier University Men's Basketball Tip-Off Tournament Friday night at Muldoon Gymnasium.

With the win, Southern Maine improves to 2-1 overall. The loss snaps a three-game win-streak for Colby-Sawyer dropping its record to 3-1.

Senior Jose Novchanthavong (Westbrook, Maine) scored a team-high 21 points to lead a balanced scoring effort from the Huskies who shot an outstanding 64.3 percent (36-for-56) from the field for the game. Senior Cole Libby (Buxton, Maine/Bonny Eagle) added 18 points and five rebounds, while junior Atencio Martin (Kittery, Maine/Traip Academy) tossed in 14 points. Junior Zach Leal (York, Maine) added 13 points and senior Aaron Toman (Gardiner, Maine) chipped in 11 points on 5-for-5 shooting in a strong effort off of the bench.

The Chargers were led by senior Peter Donato's (Portland, Maine) game-high 29 points. Donato was 11-for-24 from the field to lead four players in double figures for Colby-Sawyer. Senior Wol Majon (Manchester, N.H./New Hope Academy Md.) added 17 points and six assists, and senior Jake Maynard (Shelburne, Vt./Rice Memorial) tossed in 13 points and 10 rebounds for a double-doubles. Sophomore Taylor Grande (Bedford, N.H.) chipped in with 10 points.

Opening the game with a 21-6 run, Southern Maine led the Chargers at the 44-37 at the half and remained in front of Colby-Sawyer for a majority of the game. However, Colby-Sawyer pulled even with the Huskies with 8:38 to play as Majon drained a three to cap a 14-2 run for a 67-67 tied score.

Though the Huskies never trailed, the game remained closely contested and was tied at 85 with 3:31 to play after the Chargers' Donato knocked down a jumper on an assist from Majong. With the Chargers threatening to complete the rally, Southern Maine responded with an 11-2 run to close out the game. After Donato's jumper, USM's Libby and Novchanthavong hit back-to-back jumpers before Colby-Sawyer's Majong knocked down a jumper of his own for an 89-87 USM lead with 1:54 on the clock. USM ran off the next seven points consecutively led by a three from Leal to grab an insurmountable 96-87 with 34 seconds to play.

Southern Maine returns to action on Saturday (2:00 p.m.) in the championship game of the Rivier University Tip-Off Tournament. The Huskies will face Pine Manor College. The Gators of Pine Manor defeated Rivier 77-70.

Huskies Roll, Down Pine Manor 101-75

NASHUA, N.H. – Senior Jose Novchanthavong (Westbrook, Maine) and junior Zach Leal (York, Maine) combined for 51 points to lead the University of Southern Maine Huskies to a high-scoring 101-75 win over the Pine Manor College Gators in the championship game of the 23rd Annual Rivier University Men's Basketball Tip-Off Tournament Saturday at Muldoon Gymnasium.

The win is the second straight for the Huskies who improve to 3-1. The loss is the first of the season for Pine Manor, which is now 3-1 on the season.

Southern Maine continued its hot-shooting weekend connecting on 52.1 percent of its shots (37-for-71) from the field and 47.1 percent (8-for-17) from three-point range to eclipse the 100-point barrier since the 2007 season when the Huskies defeated UMaine Presque Isle 113-48.

Novchanthavong scored a game-high 26 points on 8-for-11 shooting, nearly missing out on a triple-double with seven rebounds and eight assists. Leal was 10-for-14 from the field for 25 points adding five assists, three rebounds and a pair of steals. Junior Atencio Martin (Kittery, Maine/Traip Academy) added 16 points and six rebounds, while junior Fred Knight (Hampden, Maine/Hampden Academy) was the fourth USM player in double figures with 11 points and eight rebounds.

Sophomore Johnathan Higgenbotham (Oakland, Calif./Patten Academy) led the Gators with 14 points off of the bench on a 6-for-7 effort from the floor including a 2-for-2 mark from three-point range. Sophomore Taverick Roberson (Pittsfield, Mass./St. Joseph Central) added 11 points and freshman Rasheed Bell (Boston, Mass./East Boston) tossed in 10 points.

Southern Maine led wire-to-wire en route to capturing the tournament championship. The Huskies scored the first six points of the game on back-to-back three-pointers from senior Cole Libby (Buxton, Maine/Bonny Eagle) and Leal and continued to roll for a 43-33 lead at the half. Leal had 17 of his 25 points in the opening stanza.

The Huskies outscored the Gators 17-7 in the first five minutes of the second half to take a dominating 60-41 lead. Knight had six points in the run, while Novchanthavong had five points. Pine Manor pulled to within 13 points of USM, 70-57, when Higgenbotham knocked down one of his two threes in the game at the 9:40 mark, but the Huskies responded with a 6-0 run to return their advantage to 19 points, 76-57. Pine Manor never got closer than 14 points the rest of the way and USM led by as many as 30 late in the contest en route to the win.

Novchanthavong was named the tournament's MVP, while Leal earned a spot on the all-tournament team for the Huskies. Novchanthavong scored 47 points over two games for USM, averaging 23.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 7.0 assists per game. Leal averaged 19 points, 3.5 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 1.0 steal per game.

Southern Maine returns to the friendly confines of Hill Gymnasium on Tuesday (7:30 p.m.) when it hosts Bates College in a non-conference game. Pine Manor College travels to Eastern Nazarene on Friday (5:00 p.m.).

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph's College (3-2) tipped University of Southern Maine (4-2), 71-66, in non-conference men's basketball action at the Harold Alfond Center on Sunday evening.

The Monks trailed by 11 points – 31-20 – with 7:43 remaining in the first half, but the hosts outscored the visitors by a 21-7 margin leading up to intermission, as senior guard Jerome Diggs (Washington, D.C.) drained a deep buzzer-beater to make it a 41-38 game at the break.

The Monks went 4-4 from the FT line in the closing 12 seconds to hold off the Huskies, who stayed in contention until the final buzzer rang.

With the win, Saint Joseph's reclaims the Costello Cup, which is presented annually to the winner of the contest between the rivals, for the first time since the 2012-13 season and 16th time in the 27-game history of the Cup series, which began during the 1989-90 campaign. The Costello Cup is named in honor of the late Dr. Richard "Doc" Costello, former USM Athletic Director and long-time basketball coach.

The Huskies shot 54.8% (17-31) from the floor in the first half but managed to shot just 27.8% (10-36), including a 3-15 (20%) effort from three-point distance, in the second stanza. Saint Joseph's shot 48% (24-50) from the field, 44.4% (8-18) from three-point range and 68.2% (15-22) from the free throw line while Southern Maine countered by shooting 40.3% (27-67) from the floor, 27.6% (8-29) from downtown and 66.7% (4-6) from the charity stripe.
