Maine 70, New Hampshire 65

DURHAM, N.H. (AP) --Ernest Turner scored 21 points as Maine held off New Hampshire late in the second half for a 70-65 America East victory Thursday night.

Maine (8-6, 3-2 America East) outscored New Hampshire 24-3 in the final 8:51 of the first half to take a 45-25 lead. During that stretch Maine hit four three pointers, two by Turner and a pair by Kevin Reed.

New Hampshire (5-9, 1-4 America East) opened the second half with a 12-5 run to make it 50-37 with 13:36 remaining. But Maine came back, leading 60-40 with 10:57 left.

UNH outrebounded Maine by a 43-27 margin, but the Black Bears were deadly from behind the three-point arc, making 10-16 for a shooting percentage of .455.

Ben Sturgill, whose jaw has been wired shut since he broke it in practice last week, led New Hampshire in scoring, with 18 points and six rebounds. Other double-digit scorers for Maine included Reed with 12 points and Jermaine Jackson with 10.
