Time is now

Only two weeks into the America East season and the Black Bears would appear to have arrived at a crossroads.

Three straight losses to contenders Boston University, Albany and Vermont have left UMaine at 2-3 in the league and looking to regain some of the swagger discovered during a solid non-conference schedule.

If UMaine hopes to climb back into contention for a coveted top three seed for the America East tournament, it's likely the hike begins this week with home games against Hartford (Thursday) and league-leading Stony Brook (Saturday).

Fortunes seemingly change overnight. The Black Bears can get back into the hunt without packing a bag.
