Maine Women’s Hoops Hoping To Build Chemistry with Thanksgiving Tourney 

The 18th annual Dead River Classic tips off tomorrow in Orono. The Maine Women’s Basketball team welcomes in South Alabama, Florida and Navy to the Alfond. Black Bears head coach Cindy Blodgett knows that it’s not easy being away from home on Thanksgiving but spending the holiday as a team could be a great chemistry-building experience.Cindy Blodgett – Maine Head Coach”I think it’s wonderful that we obviously get to host a tournament and we get to play two games at home recognizing that we do have a lot of players from away so that means they are not home with their family and friends so I think it allows us to sort of foster that family away from home for them. It’s just nice that we’re all together and being able to host is great.”
