ORONO - Their matchup Wednesday night in Bangor will likely decide who gets home court advantage throughout the America East playoffs.

Maine lost to the Hawks back in mid-January, still the only blemish on the Black Bears conference record

This team has improved offensively since that game.

"We're working hard every day and I mean now we're at home too so that helps, we tend to shoot better at the Cross [Insurance Center]...," said junior forward Fanny Wadling.

This group does tend to play better at home, their only loss in Bangor this season coming to head coach Joan Palumbo Mcallie and Duke.

Maine had no issues with UMBC in their game on Saturday, although Dor Sarr suffered a right ankle injury she says she and the rest of the team will be ready for tomorrow

"This time we come in more prepared and we know it's a big game so we come in fired up and just ready to go," said Sarr.
