UMaine Picks Up the Pace

Great week for the Black Bears with 2 wins to even our league record to 4-4, good enough for 5th place midway through conference play. A hard-fought home win over Binghamton Saturday followed an overtime thriller at Hartford Wednesday (105-100 final). According to a Ken Pomeroy study, no team in the country has picked up their pace more than the Black Bears. Ryan Restivo of Big Apple Buckets wrote a terrific piece (linked below) on our up-tempo attack last week that began with Coach Walsh looking at our personnel and the rest of our league last April and deciding that getting the game to be played at the fastest pace possible would give us the best chance to climb into the league’s upper echelon.
