Black Bears 65, Columbia 59

Sean McNally (16 points, 7 rebounds) and Terrance Mitchell (14 points) led four Black Bears in double figures as UMaine rallied in the second half. Freshman Murphy Burnatowski registered 11 points and four rebounds and Gerald McLemore added 12 in the foul plagued game.

A total of 48 personal fouls were whistled with UMaine going 27 of 38 from the line. Columbia was 23 for 30 on freebies.

The Black Bears move to 6-5 on the season. With two non-conference games remaining (at Boston College Saturday and Princeton Monday at Alfond), UMaine will have a chance to finish above .500 going into its America East opener Jan. 7 vs. Vermont.
