Reeling in the east

Stony Brook outslugged the Black Bears 58-52 Saturday, pushing UMaine to its fifth consecutive loss, three of them in Orono.

Since beginning the America East season at 2-0, the Black Bears have fallen into a sixth-place tie with New Hampshire and Maryland-Baltimore County. UMaine (8-10, 2-5) travels to Durham, N.H., Wednesday looking to snap the skid.

Senior guard Gerald McLemore sat out the second half of Saturday's loss to the first-place Seawolves (no injury reported). Junior frontcourter Mike Allison was injured early in the contest, briefly returned, and then wasn't able to continue.

Stony Brook and Boston University sit atop the AE standings at 6-1 with Vermont (6-2) a half-game back.
