ORONO – Maine women’s hoops had some trouble in their first three games. They started the year 0-3, but this weekend was a strong one for the Black Bears, specifically for junior Anne Simon and freshman Bailey Wilborn.
Simon was named America East Player of the Week on Monday morning, averaging 18.3 points during that stretch including a 26-point game in Maine’s two-point win over Boston University.
The Black Bears also got some help from freshman Bailey Wilborn, who was named America East Rookie of the Week.
Wilborn scored 12 points in that win over BU and Maine’s Friday night win over Yale.
In both games, Wilborn did all her damage from behind the three-point line, making four threes in each of the two games.
