It's just an exhibition game but the Husson Eagles and UMaine Black Bears hoops teams will meet at the Cross Center tonight with both teams looking to prove some things.

For the Eagles, they want to show how good they are coming off a 26 win season and a NCAA divison-3 playoff appearance. Beating D-1 Maine would be an important start to the season.

For the Black Bears, they are coming off a 78-73 loss to D-3 USM on Saturday. No way they want to start with two losses in their in-state exhibition games.

Warren Caruso begins his 21st season as Husson head coach. Bob Walsh starts his first year as UMaine coach.

Tonight marks the fourth time the two schools have played each other...

1996-97:  Husson  73     UMaine  72

1997-98:  UMaine  102    Husson  56

2002-03:  UMaine  100    Husson  68
