George Washington men's basketball will face Maine for the first time in the second game of the 2013-14 regular season on Tuesday, Nov. 12 at the Charles E. Smith Center.



After opening the program's 100th season on Friday, Nov. 8 with a first-ever meeting against Radford, GW will welcome a second consecutive first-time opponent to the new Tex Silverman Court four days later with Maine's visit to the district.

While it will be the first-ever meeting between the Colonials and Black Bears, GW head coach Mike Lonergan will face Maine for the 13th time after posting a 9-3 mark as America East rivals during his six-year tenure at Vermont from 2005-11.

Maine enters its 10th season under head coach Ted Woodward, who has posted a 111-155 record since 2004-05 after taking over for current La Salle head coach John Giannini. The Black Bears, who joined the Colonials as two of four NCAA Division I teams to start at least four foreign-born players last season, are slated to return two starters from a team that finished 11-19 overall and 6-10 in the America East in 2012-13.

Be sure to check back to each day until the release of season tickets on July 8 as a new men's basketball non-conference event is announced and broken down by Coach Lonergan.
