Summer hadn't even unofficially ended when Maine suffered its first loss of this season.

On Aug. 29, the Friday before Labor Day, the Black Bears announced that Rickey White was leaving the team for personal reasons. White, a 6-6 forward earned first-team All-America East honors last season after leading his team in scoring (13.2 ppg) and setting school and conference records for field-goal percentage (.662).
