BANGOR, Maine (AP) Tyler Scanlon and Will Goff each scored 13 points to help Boston University beat former conference-foe Maine 78-69 on Wednesday in the 103rd meeting.
The Terriers hold the edge in the series, 62-40, with the first game coming in the 1902-03 season.
Walter Whyte added 12 points for BU (1-3), which lost to UConn 85-66 last Sunday. Nick Havener grabbed 10 rebounds but was just 4-of-14 shooting from the field. Goff made four of BU's 11 3-pointers and Scanlon added three.
