Time, site: Monday, 7:30 p.m., Alfond Arena, Orono

Records: Maine 2-4, Delaware State 3-3

Series, last meeting: Maine leads 4-1, Maine 59-56 on 11/18/09

Key players: Maine — 6-7 F Troy Barnies (12.0 ppg, 6.5 rpg), 6-1 G Raheem Singleton (11.3 ppg, 3.8 apg), 6-7 F Murphy Burnatowski (10.8 ppg), 6-3 G Gerald McLemore (10.2 ppg), 6-3 G Terrance Mitchell (9.0 ppg), 6-7 F Alasdair Fraser (6.7 ppg, 3.8 rpg); Delaware State — 6-2 G Desi Washington (14.5 ppg, .442 3-pt.

Outlook: The Black Bears play a second straight home game looking to halt a three-game losing streak. UMaine is coming off Saturday’s 62-54 loss to Brown during which the Black Bears did not make enough plays in the late going to get a victory. UMaine is still trying to re-establish its confidence and cohesiveness as it deals with a nagging ankle injury to McNally and a flu that is making its way through the team. The Hornets beat Maryland Eastern Shore 64-53 Saturday in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference home game. Delaware State is a smaller, guard-oriented squad that likes to shoot 3-pointers (22.3 attempts per game). UMaine will again try to improve its rebounding efficiency against a team that also has been outrebounded by its opponents. The Hornets have allowed only 60.2 ppg, despite letting teams shoot nearly 48 percent from the field.
