The start for America East Conference play for the UMaine Black Bears will have to wait at little longer.

The series with the UMBC Retrievers has been cancelled, according to a release by the university on Friday afternoon.  The teams were scheduled to play a three game series from Maryland.  The games have not been rescheduled at this time.  Both sides will play in Orono on May 6th.

The Black Bears are 6-10 on the season after their last four games to UMass and Miami in Florida.  Maine will play St John's in a three-game set next Saturday with the conference opener now getting underway on April 1st from Lowell.
