Game notes: The Black Bears are coming off Sunday’s eye-opening 85-73 win at North Carolina. They cannot have a big-win hangover and take the Crimson lightly. Harvard is battle-tested, losing to No. 1 Notre Dame (103-58) and former UMaine head coach Sharon Versyp’s 6-2 Purdue University Boilermakers (66-65). Wadling is likely to miss her fifth straight game due to a concussion. Millan, the America East Co-Player of the Week, torched the Crimson for 28 points in last year’s Tip-Off Tournament win. Harvard is coming off a 72-67 double-overtime loss to Quinnipiac on Friday. Benzan had 27 points and was 7-for-12 from beyond the 3-point arc vs. the Bobcats. UMaine was 16-for-33 from 3-point land vs. North Carolina, tying the school record for most threes made in a game.
