Skid grows to 5

UMaine's 16-point loss to Vermont Wednesday puts the Black Bears on the brink of falling to fourth or fifth place. The Bears were 8-1 and in first place in America East one game into the second half of the league season.

America East statisticians must be scrambling to find the last time a first place team, that late in the season, fell to fourth or fifth by the time the conference tournament rolled around. UMaine is on the brink of pulling it off.

Albany and Hartford are challenging UMaine for the third spot. Albany is one game behind UMaine in the loss column and Hartford two. The Black Bears would lose the tiebreaker with Hartford.

The regular-season finale at home against Albany may decide who finishes in third place.

Dan,

I'm really not trying to be sarcastic or passive aggressive, I truly feel for you guys. It seemed as though Maine was for sure the best team in the conference up until two weeks ago.

You never know what could happen in the tournament. So good luck, this has been hard to watch even as a Catamount fan.
