Re: Three Wildcats coming home for AE tourney

When we tried to order tix for the WBI in 2014, two $5 tix cost $23.50 through Ticketbas---d for the seats we had held during regular season. Instead, we left home half an hour early and bought tix at the window at the Cross Center, then walked to our usual seats and enjoyed Maine thrashing Bucknell.

I tried to order today online, and the total for two tix for all three sessions was $96.50. The tix in the three-pack came to $68, so the bump is $28.50. Since we're going to Scarborough tomorrow for chemo, I'll just stop by the box office and see what the price is there. Probably more than $68 but less than $96.50.

Last two years at Bingo, we could order through AE and the bump was about $5. And we could order seats in a "Maine" section. Online form asked for favorite team. Maine section was way high but crowds at Bingo were so small we could all move down behind Maine bench, which AE had reserved for some other team (not Albany, which had the opposite bench for its two games) whose fans didn't attend. I see no way to order in a "Maine" group this year. Probably because Ticketbas---d is running it.

Portland embracing America East women’s basketball tournament

...He noted that having eight players from the state of Maine on America East rosters will be another valuable drawing card.

The list includes UNH seniors Ashley Storey (Cumberland), Kristen Anderson (Greene) and Sarah Clement (Falmouth); Binghamton’s Kristin Ross (Gorham) and Kylie Libby (South Portland), Albany’s Tiana-Jo Carter (Naples) and UMaine’s Maddy McVicar (Calais) and Sierra Tapley (Bar Harbor).

Portland makes strong debut as host of America East women’s basketball tournament

...The tournament will return to Portland next season but it will expand from two days to three days. A ninth team, UMass Lowell, will be eligible for postseason play after serving its NCAA-mandated, four-year probationary period after transitioning from Division II to Division I.

Thus, there will be a play-in game between the Nos. 8 and 9 seeds on Friday to kick off the tourney.

Last Saturday’s afternoon session drew 1,896 fans with top seed New Hampshire ousting No. 8 Stony Brook and No. 4 UMaine eliminating No. 5 Binghamton. In the night session, Albany topped Vermont and Hartford bested University of Maryland Baltimore County. That session drew 941 spectators.

In the Sunday afternoon semifinals, 1,847 watched UMaine upset New Hampshire and Albany edge Hartford.
