Comes in threes

The next three games will have a strong impact on UMaine's ability to avoid the Thursday night play-in game at the America East conference tournament.

The Black Bears' upcoming schedule features contests among the schools occupying the bottom of the America East standings. UMaine is in a three-way tie for sixth-place with New Hampshire and Maryland-Baltimore County while Binghamton has dropped a large anchor on the ninth spot.

First up is New Hampshire Wednesday night in Durham. Binghamton visits Orono Saturday night before the Black Bears make a trip to UMBC on Feb. 4.

A good showing would give UMaine some tie-breaker breathing room at the end of February.
