BANGOR, Maine – The University of Maine basketball team was defeated by the Central Connecticut State Blue Devils (64-56) Tuesday night at the Cross Insurance Center.

Steph Ingo led the way for Maine as the striker finished with 14 points and four rebounds. LeChaun DuHurt added eight points, three rebounds and two steals, while Ata Turgut added six points and two rebounds.

Maine watched nine of its players find their way into the scoring column as the Black Bears finished the competition 17 of 43 from the ground and hit 18 of 24 free throws. On the boards, Maine grabbed a total of 26 rebounds and blocked three Blue Devil shots.

At 11:33 a.m. of the first half, the tide changed for the black bears. LeChaun DuHurt hit a deep threesome 18-9 back. It was the start of a 5-0 run for Maine. The Blue Devils took control of the first half again. Five points were as close as Maine would get in the first half. CCSU led at halftime by 31:21.

10 back at break, the Black Bears came out as a different team. Fofo Adetogun dragged his squad on by converting both free throws, 36-34. Unfortunately it was so close for the home team. CCSU expanded its lead in the second half to up to 12 points. Steph Ingo’s nine points in the second half weren’t enough to put Maine in the lead. The Blue Devils held the win by a score of 64-56.

The Black Bears are back in action on Friday when they travel to Peoria, Illinois to take on Bradley University. The tip-off is scheduled for 3 p.m.
