Moving time

The back nine of the America East schedule has begun and if the Black Bears hold any hopes of moving up the leader board, the climb must begin Saturday at Maryland-Baltimore County.

Immediately following the game with the seventh-place Retrievers, UMaine will have four straight contests against the teams directly above it in the standings.

Thanks to the recent five-game skid, ascending to the No. 3 seed for the conference tourney is a longshot at best. It's not, however, inconceivable for the Black Bears to get to the No. 4 spot currently occupied by Albany.

UMaine's remaining America East schedule:

Feb. 4: at UMBC
Feb. 6: Vermont
Feb. 9: at Boston U.
Feb. 11: Albany
Feb. 15: at Hartford
Feb. 22: New Hampshire
Feb. 26: at Stony Brook
