AE WBB Semi-Finals: Maine (1) vs. Albany (4) - 3/10/19

Postby mainah57 » Sat Mar 09, 2019 6:55 pm

Posting this a bit early to allow for some pre-game discussion...

Maine will be facing Albany at The Pit at 1 PM in the Semi-Final game of the tournament. Maine has not beat Albany in a post-season game since 2006, but has won its last 3 match-ups against Albany.

Albany has definitely proven to be a beatable team for Maine this year, but they do have a decent inside game with Forster, which makes me a little nervous. Fanny Wadling's presence will be huge in this game. In the last match-up against Albany, she had 10 rebounds in 16 minutes (before fouling out - some questionable calls and an fairly physical game, if I recall), and Maeve also had some big contributions off the bench. Albany has also shot well from the 3 against Maine (53% from the 3 in the last game against Maine!), so hopefully that streak is broken at The Pit.

Maine's 3 point shooting has been a little streaky lately, so fingers crossed that Maine can shoot well at The Pit (and make a few more of those open lay-ups than they did against UNH...). It should be a fun game, and hoping for a great energy at The Pit.

Has Maine played a post-season game against Albany IN MAINE since 2006?

I don't think the Albany women have played a post-season game "at Maine" (not Portland).

I believe they have only played each other three times in the postseason since 2006 - once in a prelim game in 2009 (which presumably was either at Hartford, the tournament's host that year, or Albany, the higher seed), and in 2016 and 2017 at Albany in the America East title game.

That 1st quarter was scary as hell! All I can say is...All Hail Tanesha! Tough as nails! Maine vs Hartford on Friday at the Cross. The place is going to be packed,so don’t wait on tickets and don’t get GA unless you want to sit behind the basket! Go Maine!

Awesome game at the PIT!!! The crowd, band & cheerleaders nailed it, great atmosphere for a playoff game!!! …..Maine needs to hit the easy layups and open shots going forward....Taller skill teams will overwhelm them in games to come....Nice come back ladies!!!
