Some changes could benefit UMaine women’s basketball team with tourney looming

... Both are strong rankings but the Black Bears do have some weaknesses to address as the conference tourney looms.

The first is an inconsistent 3-point game and another is lack of overall size, which makes it tough to defend other team’s frontcourt players and to have a rim protector.

It also doesn’t allow for an effective inside offensive game to have inside-outside or dribble penetration games to get open 3-point shots.

The Black Bears have a tendency to live and die by the 3-pointer and are only shooting 31.4 percent. They are taking 41.5 percent of their field goal attempts as 3-pointers which is too many for not shooting at least 33.3 percent.
