WATERVILLE, Maine --- Eric Beaulieu (Concord, Mass.) finished with 19 points and 10 rebounds as the Colby College men's basketball team took a 66-63 win over University of Maine at Farmington on Tuesday night at Wadsworth Gymnasium.
 
Beaulieu was 7-for-11 from the field and added three assists, two blocked shots, and two steals.
 
Colby moves to 6-11 overall, while UMF fell to 9-7.
 
Ben Foreman (Los Angeles, Calif.) finished with 11 points and six assists for the Mules. Kyle Donovan (Portland, Maine) added 10 points and a game-high nine rebounds, while Shane Rogers (Newburgh, N.Y.) chipped in eight points, seven rebounds, four assists (no turnovers), and two steals. Nick Rimsa (Andover, Conn.) came off the bench with six points and three rebounds in limited minutes.

UMF went ahead again when Nate Carson (Orrington, Maine) nailed a pair of free throws with 1:10 to play. Beaulieu, though, came up big when he scored inside off a nice feed from O'Neil with just 16 seconds to play.
