BANGOR, Maine (AP) Isaiah White scored a career-high 23 points with five 3-pointers and made a game-saving block, Andre Fleming added 16 points for his 25th career game scoring in double figures, and Maine held off Binghamton 81-79 in overtime on Saturday to end a two-game skid.

Aaron Calixte scored 11 points for Maine (6-19, 3-7 America East), which led 30-28 at halftime and by as many as 10 in the second half until Thomas Bruce's tip-in tied it at 69 with eight seconds left in regulation.
