AE gameday 12/9

All 3 games are away and start at 4:00PM.

Maine vs Florida State

UMBC vs Norfolk State

Harford VS Fairleigh Dickinson


I'm seeing Hartford as the only win today, but UMBC could surprise. Going up against the defending ACC champs is a tough game for Maine.

Re: AE gameday 12/9

Some of the FSU fans are saying Maine is favored. Can this be true?

Re: AE gameday 12/9

Well, the betting line has Maine as an 18.5 point underdog. Maybe those FSU fans have been practicing for the end of prohibition.

Re: AE gameday 12/9

FSU has lost to Mercer and South Alabama this year but they have a lot of size, length and athletic ability. I just don't see Maine having much of a shot in this one.

Re: AE gameday 12/9

FSU is off to a real disappointing start and they got destroyed by their rival Florida last week. Michael Snaer is one of the better SGs around but is off to a slow start.

Maine might have a shot, but FSU may also be ready to take their frustrations out on someone.

Re: AE gameday 12/9

Interested to see how Hartford does against Fairleigh Dickinson as we get them at home soon. They seem to be better than last season and are now 4-4 with their losses coming to good teams in Xavier, Northwestern, Illinois State, and Lehigh.

Hartford transfer Mustafa Jones starts at one of the guard spots for FDU.

Interesting, I did not know he ended up there. I know they also have a Duquesne transfer, Melquan Bolding, that scores a lot for them.

Re: AE gameday 12/9

Interesting day, I like UMBC and Hartford. Maine should be able to give FSU a game as well.

Re: AE gameday 12/9

Maine, for all its improvements in athleticism at the guard position, still really struggled with seton hall's size and athleticism.

I would say that playing Dimitry Coronel would allow for a more athletic second unit of he and Lawton, but I can't see Woodward sitting Valjarevic. For all of the good defense and athleticism that Coronel brings he's a liability right now offensively. a real risk taker who could use some time to mature but he's got potential. Maine will need big games out of Mesghna, Pollard, and Allison to have a shot. I feel like Fraser and Edwards will show up regardless, but Pollard/Mesghna's outside shooting and Allison's rebounding could go a long way in determining the flow of the game.

Is Allison still with the team?
