Game notes: The Black Bears eye a better effort after Sunday’s 65-49 home loss to Stony Brook, when UMaine had its lowest offensive output since Jan. 1. The Wildcats have won seven of eight, including Sunday’s 75-68 win over UMass Lowell. This game pits two sisters, Courtney Anderson of UMaine and UNH freshman Kristen Anderson, who hail from Greene and played at Leavitt High. UMaine must contend with a UNH team that has good height and has allowed only 58 ppg on 35 percent shooting.
