Three of those baskets were by Justin Edwards, who led Maine's scorers with 19 points. Alasdair Fraser added 17 points and also had nine rebounds and three blocked shots.

After the Saints (2-4) cut the lead to 49-45, Pollard nailed a 3-pointer, Edwards added two baskets and Fraser one to make it 58-45 with 8:20 to play.
