Stony Brook is coming off an 83-39 win over UMBC.

Maine's Mike Allison currently has 128 blocks which put him fifth in program history, and also has 494 rebounds and will look to join Fraser and Jeff Cross in the 500-rebound, 100-block club at UMaine.

Valjarevic is looking for his eighth double-digit scoring effort in the last 10 games and his fourth 20-point nine in eight games.

Stony Brook is trying to clinch a share of the America East title with a win.
