What to Know
The Merrimack Warriors are staying on the road on Tuesday to face off against the Maine Black Bears at 5 p.m. ET Dec. 21 at Cross Insurance Center. Maine will be strutting in after a win while the Warriors will be stumbling in from a loss.
There’s no need to mince words: Merrimack lost to the Indiana Hoosiers last week, and they lost bad. The score wound up at 81-49. Guard Ziggy Reid had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with 11 points on 4-for-13 shooting in his 34 minutes on the court.
Meanwhile, the Black Bears were completely in charge this past Saturday, breezing past the New England University Nor’easters 86-50 at home.
Merrimack is now 4-8 while Maine sits at 3-6. A couple offensive stats to keep an eye on: Merrimack is stumbling into the contest with the 356th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 56.2 on average. Maines have had an even harder time: they are 349th worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 59.2 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
