After losing five straight games in the beginning of December, the U-Maine Women’s basketball team ended 2009 and kicked off 2010 with wins over Stephen F. Austin and U-MASS. Tonight, the Black Bears kicked off their conference schedule hosting Boston University over at Alfond Arena.Cindy Blodgett knows that a home win to kick off conference play would be huge especially against Kelly Greenberg and the Terriers.Early on there was a barrage of three pointers. Caroline Stewart hits one from the outside for BU…But on the other end, Kristin Baker hits a three of her own. TWELVE points this evening for Baker.However, Boston University led for pretty much the entire game. Maine cut it close a couple times late in the first half and early on in the second half but too much BU in this one. They take down the Black Bears, 71-65 the final.
