Maine 68, Hartford 63

Postby bainsey » Thu Feb 12, 2009 2:32 pm

The UMaine men went on an 18-4 run in the last six-and-a-half minutes to knock off Hartford 68-63 and snap a five-game America East losing streak.

Here's the box score...

Maine's (9-16, 4-8 AE) next three games are on the road: Next Thursday at UNH (9-14, 4-7), 2/22 at Albany (13-11, 5-6), and 2/26 at Boston University (14-10, 9-3). Maine's only home game remaining is March 1, 1PM, vs. Vermont (19-7, 10-3).

Knocking off UNH would certainly help keeping out of that 8-9 conference play-in game. From there, with this team, anything goes.

bainsey:

If they do lose to UNH it might be better for them as that way they would have to play Hartford and MAYBE, JUST MAYBE they might get a tourney win.

If they beat UNH then they will have to play the top team then they would probably lose another first round game, but then again on a nuetral court they might lose to Hartford, tough to beat a team 3 times. The pressure would be on Maine to beat Hartford and it wold be embarrssing to lose like they did to the ninth seed Stonybrook last year, this year.
