Brown 75, Black Bears 62

Playing its third game in five days, Brown (2-3) exploded for 43 points in the second half and pulled away from the visiting Black Bears (2-2).

Brown limited UMaine's leading scorers, Gerald McLemore and Terrance Mitchell, to 13 points, 22 under their combined average. Entering the game, the duo was teaming up for 35 a game. On the flip side, Brown's top scoring tandem of Matt Mullery (24 points) and Peter Sullivan (20) entered the game scoring a combined 23 a game and nearly doubled that against UMaine.

Junior Bernal (18 points, 9 rebounds) and Sean McNally (14, points, 10 rebounds) paced the Black Bears. Mitchell was 2 of 9 from the field and fouled out of the contest with five points. It was his second disqualification in the first four games. McLemore, who was averaging nearly 20 points, finished with eight on 3 of 12 shooting.

UMaine won the rebounding battle, but that was more than offset by Brown's 47-percent shooting from the floor.
