The University of Maine basketball teams both fell to the Wildcats on Wednesday evening, as the women’s side snapped a 21-game home conference winning streak at the Cross Insurance Center.

The Black Bears hadn’t lost in Bangor since November when they fell to then #10 ranked Mississippi State Bulldogs, until the Wildcats took home the eight point victory.  The men’s side dropped a road contest to New Hampshire as well by a score of 64-51.  Both teams will be back in action this weekend against Albany.

The Wildcats continued their hot play in the 2016-17 season and swept the season series over the Black Bears.  UNH took a 14 point lead at the half as UMaine missed six three-pointers in the first 20 minutes of play.  The Black Bears would chip away at the deficit, were unable to stop Wildcat center Carlie Pogue.  The junior had 19 points and 10 rebounds for her six double-double of the season.  Maine was led by Sigi Koizar who had 19 points and 11 rebounds for her second straight double-double as well.  The Black Bears face Albany in New York on Saturday afternoon.

The Black Bears had three players score in double digits, but UMaine did not have enough to pick up their third conference win on the year.  Andrew Fleming led the way with 16 points, while Vincent Eze had 15 points in the losing effort.  Jalen Smith led all scorers with 21 points and 8-18 shooting from the floor.  Maine is now 6-23 on the season and will host the Great Danes on Sunday afternoon
