Brown out

UMaine's early-season struggles continued Saturday with a 62-54 loss at home to Brown.

Both teams shot less than 40 percent from the floor, but the visitors from Providence connected on all 17 of their free throws while the Black Bears hit just 58 percent (7 of 12).

Murphy Burnatowski led the Black Bears with 15 points. Raheem Singleton had 11.

UMaine was once again beaten on the backboards as Brown posted a 31-29 advantage. As a team, the Black Bears are ranked 332nd in the country in rebounding.

Sean McNally, Gerald McLemore and Terrance Mitchell combined for only 10 points on 4 for 18 shooting. McLemore's early-season woes continued. In 36 minutes, the preseason all-America East pick had four points and no rebounds, assists, steals or blocks.
