The University of Maine men's basketball team (9-15, 4-7) hosts the Hartford Hawks (14-10, 7-4) in an America East contest.

The Black Bears are coming off a 66-52 win over Albany.

Maine was led by Mike Allison who had nine points, 12 rebounds and four blocks while Justin Edwards added a team-high 16 points.

Hartford is coming off a 60-55 win over first-place Stony Brook.

Mark Nwakamma led the Hawks with 23 points and six rebounds.

Hartford defeated Maine earlier this season by the score of 68-61.

Alasdair Fraser had 16 points and seven rebounds while Edwards and Jon Mesghna each added 17 points.

Maine's Mike Allison currently has 124 blocks which put him fifth in program history, and also has 472 rebounds; should he grab 500 rebounds he would be just the second player in program history to notch 500 rebounds and 100 blocks (Jeff Cross, 1981-84).

Maine's Pollard is averaging 12.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 6.3 assists the last three contests while Fraser has notched a double-digit scoring effort and at least eight rebounds in five out of the last eight games; Zarko Valjarevic is looking for his fifth double-digit scoring effort in the last seven games.
