HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) Ousmane Drame scored 20 points and grabbed 11 rebounds as Quinnipiac used a fast start to the second half to run away from Maine for an 81-64 victory and a third-straight win Monday night.

The Bobcats got to the basket for a handful of layups and a Drame dunk during a 20-6 run that ballooned Quinnipiac's three-point halftime lead into a 53-36 advantage.

Quinnipiac (6-5), coming off a confidence-building, 60-52 win over Oregon State, shot 50.8 from the field (32 of 63) and had five players score in double figures, including Zaid Hearst, who has 15.

The Black Bears (1-11) were led by the 19 points of Till Gloger. Shaun Lawton added 11 points. Maine was just 24 of 62 from the field (38.7 percent), including 9 of 23 from distance.

Quinnipiac now has won five of the last six games with their New England rival.
