Black Bears Resume Action on Sunday at No. 5/3 Mississippi State

...A GLIMPSE INTO THE MISSISSIPPI STATE SERIES:
Maine and Mississippi State will square off for the third time in history, and the second time in as many years. Maine is looking for its first win against the Bulldogs after suffering an 87-43 setback in last year's UMaine Tipoff Tournament Championship game. In that contest, Julie Brosseau tallied seven points while Tanesha Sutton added six. Maine is 0-1 all-time at Mississippi State, falling in Starkville by an 80-55 final on Dec. 11, 2005.

The Black Bears are 2-19 all-time against the SEC with wins coming against LSU (52-41 / 11/29/15) and Alabama (75-73 / 1/5/95).

STRENGTH OF SCHEDULE & RPI:
The Black Bears, who will have played three top-15 ranked teams by the end of December, currently have the 113 toughest schedule, according to the NCAA rankings. Maine's schedule ranks 23 spots ahead of the next closest America East program (Stony Brook - 113). Maine's RPI currently sits at 97 out of 349 Division-I teams. The Black Bears are just eight spots behind the America East RPI leader UAlbany, which ranks 89th.

MILLAN STEALING AND SCORING:
Blanca Millan has been impressive this season on both sides of the ball. Offensively, Millan ranks fourth in the America East at 17.3 points per game. The sophomore is also the league's top threat from 3-point range (44.0) and ranks fourth overall from the field (51.4). Defensively, Millan's 31 steals rank her 19th in the nation and tops in the America East.
