Little Scores 19, Bears Beat Cent Conn St 81-74
Make it two wins in a row for the UMaine men's basketball team. Sunday afternoon the win came on the road at Central Connecticut State 81-74.
The Black Bears are now 2-3 and the Blue Devils are winless.
Maine took a nine point lead into halftime and then extended that lead to double digits early in the second half.
But Central Connecticut came back on the Bears and actually regained the lead with about five minutes to go.
The Bears quickly got the lead back and down the stretch, eight of Maine's last 10 points came from the free throw line.
Along with Little's 19, Maine got 15 from Till Gloger and 11 from Devine Eke.
The Black Bears will try to match last year's win total (3) when they host Army Wednesday night at the Cross Center in Bangor.
