Black Bears Return to the Court and Ice

UMaine’s ice hockey and basketball teams have returned to competition following a two-week delay prompted by COVID-19-related precautionary measures.

“Our teams are thrilled to be able to resume their competitive seasons,” says UMaine athletics director Ken Ralph. “The students have worked hard to stay safe while preparing physically for their seasons. ”

Last week, the women’s basketball team played two games in Rhode Island, beating Providence College 62-48 on Thursday and beating the University of Rhode Island 61-47 on Friday.

Both the men’s and women’s ice hockey teams were in New Hampshire over the weekend to play UNH. The men’s team tied the first game of the two-game series and lost the second game 2-6. The women’s team won both games with a score of 2-1.

The men’s basketball team opens its season on December 19 in Connecticut against the University of Hartford. Click here for the UMaine Athletics’ winter sports schedule.
