Game 3

Black Bears (1-1) at Delaware State (2-0)
Nov. 18, 7:30 p.m.
Memorial Hall, Dover, Del.

Delaware State has posted wins in its first two contests, both against non-D1 competition. The Hornets were picked to finish ninth (of 11 schools) in a preseason poll of MEAC coaches.

Delaware State was 8-24 last season. The matchup between DSU and UMaine ought to be interesting as both teams are guard dominated. Delaware State went to a four-guard lineup Monday to pull away from Wilmington University. Meanwhile, the Black Bears have relied on guards Gerald McLemore, Terrance Mitchell and Junior Bernal in the early going.

If UMaine can exploit Delaware State on the interior, look for a positive result Wednesday night. If it comes down to a shootout from the perimeter ... that might play into the home team's hands.

This is one the Black Bears need to get tonight. No reason they shouldn't handle a MEAC bottom-feeder if they've really improved as much as much as we've been hearing in the local rags.

Nice rally in the second half. We'll take'em any way we can get'em. Got to look at the bright side: three straight close games on the road, two of them in the W column. Now, on to the Ivy League and Brown.
