Quinnipiac 59, Black Bears 46

The good news? UMaine held Northeast Conference scoring champ James Feldeine to three points Tuesday in its home opener. The bad news? It didn't matter as the Black Bears shot 30 percent and allowed Quinnipiac to burn the nets at 45 percent, stumbling to a loss at Alfond Arena.

The Black Bears never led during the contest and made just 2 of 16 three-point attempts.

Sophomore guard James Johnson, who made the NEC all-rookie team last year, paced the Bobcats with 16 points and shut down the Black Bears' Gerald McLemore (6 points on 3 of 10 shooting), an all-rookie selection in America East.
