CASTINE, Maine-- Senior guard Matt Ketchen (Mt. Desert Island, Maine) drained a 3-point field goal and the front end of a one-and-one with less than a minute remaining in the contest to give the Maine Maritime Academy (5-3) a two-point victory, 69-67, over the visiting Bates Bobcats (3-5), the Mariners' first-ever.
Bates had a chance to tie the game with two seconds left on the clock when Rommel Padonou (Libreville, Gabon) caught a lob pass from an in-bounds play, but MMA point guard Corey Streams blocked the shot.
The Mariners had five players score in double figures, led by Peter Pitula's 18 points, including four-for-four from behind the arc.
