Chantel Charles finds Danielle Walczak for two. The sophomore with 15 points to lead the Black Bears in this one.Hartford going on a big run in the second half though. Alex Hall with a three-ball from the wing as the Hawks led as much as 19.The Black Bears fighting tough though. First, a nice block by freshman Liz Wood to get the ball back. Then a few seconds later, it’s Charles who takes it through the lane, count it, and the foul. But UMaine falls tonight to Hartford, 52-37.
