FARMINGTON, Maine --- Despite a 20-point effort from first-year Luke Westman, the Colby College men's basketball team fell 62-61 to University of Maine at Farmington on Tuesday night.

The Mules fall to 1-2 overall, while UMF stays unbeaten at 3-0.

Westman was 8-for-10 from the field and also had a team-high six rebounds. Danny Chase chipped in 10 points on 4-for-7 shooting and Ryan Jann added eight points for the Mules. Connor O'Neil led Colby in assists with four.

Andrew Dickey led the Beavers with 19 points, Nate Carson finished with 16, and Ben Johnson had 15 for the winners.

UMF jumped out to an early 14-2 lead by the 13:30 mark of the opening half, but Colby successfully whittled that down to a nine-point margin by the half. The Beavers held a 34-25 lead at the intermission, with both teams shooting just 39 percent from the field.

Colby stepped up its shooting in the second half, firing at a 52 percent clip to tie the game three times and briefly take the lead with just under six minutes to play following a traditional three-point play by Chris Hudnut. 

UMF tied the game up on a 3-point bucket by Yusuf Iman, 57-57. A jumper and 3-pointer by Carson gave the Beavers a five-point lead, and UMF held Colby at bay the rest of the way. The Mules went 1-of-4 from the field down the stretch.
