UMaine to host first games since pandemic began

January 1, 2021 GMT

ORONO, Maine (AP) — The University of Maine is ready to host its first winter sporting events since the pandemic began in March.

The UMaine men’s basketball team will host New Hampshire for a pair of games on Saturday and Sunday at Memorial Gym. The women’s team begin its home slate on Jan. 9-10.

Due to the state’s 50-person indoor gathering limit, no spectators or media will be allowed inside.

For now, Maine remains the only state in New England that hasn’t hosted a college hockey game this season.

There has not been a positive COVID-19 test in the men’s hockey program, but they have had eight games postponed or canceled. The team plays on the road against University of Massachusetts-Lowell this weekend.
