BANGOR, Maine (AP) — Aaron Calixte had 15 points on 6-of-7 shooting, including three 3-pointers, and Vernon Lowndes Jr. added 14 points to help Maine beat Division III Maine-Presque Isle 75-55 on Tuesday night.

Lowndes made a 3 and then a layup to give the Black Bears a 7-0 lead and Calixte scored eight points — including back-to-back 3-pointers — during a 13-0 run that made it 20-3 fewer than seven minutes in. Maurice Harris hit a 3 and Kevin Collins converted a 3-point play as UMPI scored 14 of the first 15 second-half points and trimmed its deficit to nine points, but Maine scored the next 11 to make it 52-32 with 12 minutes left and cruised from there.

Collins had 18 points and Harris finished with 14 for UMPI.

Maine made 28 of 56 from the field, including 11 of 27 from 3-point range.
