Game notes: The Terriers graduated the top two scorers off last year’s 18-14 team but returned the next three three in Hankerson, Mosely and Scanlon. Scanlon had 15 points, three steals and two assists in just 20 minutes in the Terriers’ win over UMaine a year ago and Mosely had 15 points and four assists. Stojiljkovic is shooting 82.4 percent from the floor including 12-for-12 inside the 3-point arc. UMaine coach Bob Walsh is 3-0 in home openers. Senior Er’s first career double-double (20 points, 10 rebounds) in the Black Bears’ 69-68 overtime loss to Sacred Heart on Saturday in the consolation game at the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament earned him an all-tourney spot.
