Going into the weekend series at Stony Brook, University of Maine women’s basketball coach Amy Vachon said her team was going to have to make shots against the Seawolves’ aggressive man-to-man defense. Stony Brook ranks fourth in Division I, allowing only 50.2 points per game. UMaine didn’t make enough shots on Saturday, shooting 32 percent from the floor (20-for-62) from the floor.
The University of Maine and Stony Brook women’s basketball teams have some unfinished business. They were scheduled to meet in the America East championship game last season at Stony Brook when the season was canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nearly a year later, the Black Bears and Seawolves will square off for the league’s regular-season championship.
