ORONO, Maine -- Justin Edwards and Alasdair Fraser scored 17 points apiece and all five Maine starters hit double figures to lead the Black Bears past Maryland-Baltimore County 81-66 Saturday in an American East Conference showdown.

Jon Mesghna (16 points) went 5 of 5 from the field, including 3 of 3 from deep, while Xavier Pollard and Mike Allison posted 10 points apiece. Allison pulled down 10 boards for the Black Bears (7-8, 2-0), who had a 38-25 rebounding advantage and have won four straight since snapping a three-game skid.

Maine opened the game on a 14-6 run but UMBC answered with a 19-5 run of its own to take a 25-19 lead with 7:14 left in the first half. However, Mesghna hit a 3, sparking an 18-5 spurt for Maine, which led 37-29 at intermission.

Chase Plummer's 14 led UMBC (2-13, 0-2), which trailed by at least five the entire second half.
