Stinging loss

UMaine gave up 46 points in the second half for its second consecutive loss at home and fifth overall as Delaware State left Orono with a 75-56 victory.

The Black Bears haven't won a Division 1 game since the Nov. 12 opener at Utah Valley.

UMaine did not have a player from the starting lineup score in double figures. Raheem Singleton (11 points) and Murphy Burnatowski (10 points, 8 rebounds) led the Black Bears, who shot 37 percent from the floor.

The Hornets, whose only D1 win entering the game was against Maryland-Eastern Shore, connected on 46 percent of its shots, including 8 of 21 (38 percent) from behind the arc.

The Black Bears travel to UMass Wednesday before returning home to face Norfolk State on Dec. 12.

UMaine has five non-conference games left before the America East season begins. Two of the games are guarantee games (at UMass and Penn State) and three are at home (Norfolk State, Colgate and Columbia).
