Game notes: UMaine has won 13 of the last 15 meetings including the last two games in Binghamton. Moon leads America East and is 17th in the nation in scoring. She is a two-time all-conference selection and was a second-team pick last season. Binghamton is 6-1 at home while the Black Bears are 1-6 on the road, including six straight road losses. Binghamton is averaging 68.9 points per game which leads the conference. The Bearcats are shooting 40.8 percent from the floor and have shot a league-best 33.4 percent from the 3-point arc. UMaine has made 144 3-pointers, which ranks 15th in the country. The Black Bears turned the ball over 18 times in Wednesday’s 66-57 loss to UMass Lowell and that led to 20 River Hawk points. UMaine has to protect the ball and, as usual, will be at a distinct height disadvantage so it will have to box out.
