Where's Jacob?

UMaine updated its roster on the school's athletic website, goblackbears.com, and conspicuous by its absence was Jacob McLemore, younger brother of All-America East Freshman team member Gerald McLemore.

Jacob, who attended Scripps Ranch High School in San Diego just like Gerald, was an early signee, but his name is not listed. No word yet on what has transpired. Maybe he's been steered to prep school? Maybe he changed his mind?

Also missing from the roster is sophomore guard Doran Mitchell of Connecticut. Mitchell saw little playing time as a freshman.

Maine's roster will once again have a fresh flavor with no less than five first-year players (Travon Wilcher, Mike Allison, Murphy Burnatowski, Terrance Mitchell and Jerrell Boswell).

Also gone from the roster are center Jordan Cook, who has been dealing with some health issues, and guard Mark Socoby, who will attend UMaine this year and then finish his collegiate eligibility at an NAIA school near Los Angeles next year.
