The Southern Maine Community College men’s and women’s basketball teams both played down-to-the-wire affairs at the University of Maine-Presque Isle Sunday. The women managed to eke out a 71-69 decision in double overtime to improve to 7-1 overall (and 3-0 in Yankee Small College Conference play). Emily Bard led the way with 17 points. Maria Veino added 14 and Rogetta Donalson had 13. The men weren’t as fortunate, dropping a 72-67 decision despite 18 points, five rebounds and four assists from Jose Nouchanthavong and 10 points, seven boards and six steals from Mike Harmon. The Seawolves fell to 9-2 with the loss (but remain 5-0 in the conference). SMCC hosts Vermont Technical College Saturday. The women tip at 1 p.m. The men begin at 3 p.m.
