Seawolves riding a wave

Saturday's game at The Pit matches two teams headed in opposite directions.

Stony Brook has won seven of eight, the only loss a six-point setback at Boston University. The Seawolves and Boston University are tied for first place in America East at 5-1.

UMaine is reeling, having lost four straight including a 14-point stunner to Hartford.

The Black Bears was blitzed by a Hartford lineup that was winless during the non-conference season. The Seawolves have veterans with big-game experience and toughness, starting with guard Bryan Dougher (13.5 points per game) and the active frontcourt tandem of Tommy Brenton (8 points, 8 rebounds) and Dallis Joyner (8 points, 7 rebounds).

After the Hartford loss, Black Bears senior Gerald McLemore lamented his team's lack of energy and a "mindset" that "dwindled" when the shots weren't falling.
