Overtime blues

Albany overcame a 10-point halftime deficit and defeated the Black Bears 81-77 in overtime. The Danes and Black Bears finished in a third-place tie in the final America East standings.

UMaine wins the tiebreaker by virtue of its win at Vermont and will enter the America East tournament as the No. 3 seed.

The Black Bears will play tournament host Hartford Saturday in the final quarterfinal round game. The Hawks swept the season series from the Black Bears.

That's the bad news. The good news? The game is on the road.

UMaine was 6-7 (4-4 America East) at home this year in Division 1 games and went 8-7 (5-3) on the road.

Enjoy the tournament Dan, and bring 'em home a couple wins. Look at it this way. ... the Black Bears are overdue to win an A-East tournament game.

We'll be there. Want to see them play two games in the worst way. It's been a long, long time since we looked forward to the semifinals.
