BANGOR – Maine women’s basketball typically has had no shortage of good competition during its non-conference slate. The Black Bears will be continuing the trend this upcoming season.
Maine will be taking part in the Basketball Hall of Fame women’s challenge at Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut in November.
The blue and white will take on Power Five giant Mississippi State on Saturday the 28th and will either play Quinnipiac or UConn on the 29th.
“They (tournament officials) were looking for the two premier programs in New England and they said they wanted us and Quinnipiac and that was exciting we worked really hard to get our program to a point where we are looked at in that way,” Maine head coach, Amy Vachon, said.
