Maine coach Ted Woodward’s keys to the game: “We need to avoid turnovers, rebound as a team and play great defense on the arc and on the interior. They are a high-percentage 3-point [shooting] team with potential all-league CAA players on the perimeter.”

Game notes: UMaine’s win over Siena on Sunday snapped a six-game losing streak. The Bears are averaging only 59.4 points on 38 percent shooting, including 19 percent from 3-point range. NU, which has erased double-digit deficits in three of four victories, seeks its fifth win in November for the first time in program history.
