UMaine Men and UNH Fight for 5th Place

IN Sundays 1:00pm game at Durham against UNH does have some standing and tourney seedings implications if UNH should upset Albany during the week on Thursday.

Currently Maine sits in 5th place (not counting BU in the standings) at 6-9 and UNH sits in 6th place at 4-10. Maine has just UNH left who defeated Maine earlier in the season at Alfond Arena.

If UNH should somehow get by Albany on the road during the week then the winner of the UNH-Maine game on Sunday would finish in 5th place as Maine and UNH would be tied at 6-10 each, but UNH would have the tie breaker because they would have beaten Maine twice.

It looks like he team that finishes 6th is going to get 3rd place Albany on Albany’s home game in the quarter-finals while the 5th place team gets 4th seeded Hartford.

However, regardless of where Maoine finishes they have not played very well or been successful on the road this season. They are 5-3 at home but just 1-6 on the road. The only road win this season was against Bijghamton who beat Maine at Maine.
