UMaine Women's Basketball Team Taking Trip to Greece in May


Mahoney, Larry, Bangor Daily News (Bangor, ME)

The trip will also give the team's four European players an opportunity to play in front of their families and friends, Vachon said.

"It's super exciting," said UMaine junior guard Blanca Millan, who is from Spain and played in a tournament in Greece several years ago. …
