MAINE vs. NEW HAMPSHIRE

Time, site: Sunday, 2 p.m., Cross Insurance Center, Bangor

Records: Maine 5-22 (3-12 America East), New Hampshire 6-22 (4-11)

Series, last meeting: Maine leads 117-67, Maine 68-60 on 1/29/14

Key players: 6-3 G Xavier Pollard (15.1 points per game, 4.4 rebounds per game, 4.0 assists per game, 1.7 steals per game), 6-5 G Dimitry Akanda-Coronel (10.8 ppg, 3.0 rpg), 6-4 G Shaun Lawton (7.9 ppg, 4.4 apg, 1.9 spg), 6-7 F Till Gloger (7.4 ppg, 3.4 rpg), 6-7 F Ethan Mackey (5.4 ppg, 5.0 rpg), 6-0 G Troy Reid-Knight (6.0 ppg, 2.2 apg); UNH — 6-10 C Chris Pelcher (11.0 ppg, 8.9 rpg, 2.4 blocks per game), 6-4 F Patrick Konan (10.6 ppg, 5.7 rpg), 6-0 G Jordon Bronner (10.0 ppg, 2.2 apg), 6-0 G Daniel Dion (8.3 ppg, 2.2 apg), 6-7 F Jacoby Armstrong (8.0 ppg, 5.1 rpg)

Game notes: The Black Bears are riding a six-game losing streak into the last game of the regular season against the Wildcats. UMaine can move into seventh place, which would yield a quarterfinal matchup with Stony Brook, or might slip into sixth past Binghamton and draw Albany or Hartford. The Wildcats have lost five in a row, including Thursday’s 66-48 setback at Albany. UMaine lost 84-72 Thursday at UMass Lowell. The Black Bears are likely to be without junior 3-point specialist Zarko Valjarevic (11.4 ppg, .439 3-pt. FG pct.), who was hurt in that game.

Game notes: The Black Bears look to avenge the last-second home loss to the Wildcats and sew up the No. 4 seed for next week’s America East Championship at Albany. UMaine took care of UMass Lowell 84-65 on Wednesday in their home finale. UNH is trying to grab the No. 2 spot, which it would secure with a win by virtue of a tiebreaker with Stony Brook. The Wildcats lost 60-47 Wednesday vs. Albany. UNH leads the league in FT shooting (.752) and is second in FG percentage at .430. The Cats own five AE wins by five points or fewer.
