Mustangs trounce Black Sheep

Carrington Miller (Bingham, Maine) carried the load today as CM thrashed the Hampshire Black Sheep in Amherst, Massachusetts’s by a 102-50 score. Miller played his best game this year registering 41 points and 13 rebounds. This is his fifth double double of the season.

The long drive and the fact the mustangs only dressed seven players didn’t faze the squad. CM dashed out to a 14-2 lead from the tap and took a commanding 58-24 lead into halftime. Breyon Graves (Baltimore, Maryland) threw in 21 points and hauled down 8 rebounds. Josh Thomas (Lewiston, Maine) hit for 13 points, Adam Jensen (Gray, Maine) added 11 points and Greenville native Howie Stone chipped in with 10 points.

The win increased the mustangs conference record to 3-1 on the young season. UMPI treks to Auburn Monday to fact the mustangs in a 7pm tilt.

CM drops UMPI

Jeremy Suero (Providence, Rhode Island) hit for 29 points in a 10-17 shooting performance tonight as the mustangs thumped the University of Maine at Presque Isle Owls in Auburn by a 69-64 score.

Despite arriving back late last night from a win at Hampshire College and a sluggish beginning to today’s game, the mustangs went to the locker room up by a 32-31 score. A collective halftime commitment to share the ball and produce more on court effort took shape in the second half as CM took an 8 point lead at the 34 minute mark and increased the lead to 10 points with 2 minutes left to play. CM played their normal full court pressure using all 12 players in the effort.

Carrington Miller (Bingham, Maine) enjoyed another stellar night raking in 16 rebounds and scoring 8 points.

The mustangs go on Thanksgiving break with a 7-4 record and 3-1 Yankee Conference record.

Bridgton Academy nips Mustangs

A basketball game is forty minutes long. The mustangs played the perennial powerhouse Bridgton Academy Wolverines even for twenty of those minutes before being outscored 33-26 in the second half falling to Bridgton on the road by a 73-66 margin. Despite CM leading by as much as 10 points in the first half, BA went on a 12-2 run in the last 3 minutes of the half to even the score at 40-40 at the break. The second half score went back and forth until the 6 minute mark when Bridgton went up by 6 points and maintained that lead the remainder of the contest. Xavier Colbert (Manassas, Virginia) lead with 17 points and 8 rebounds. Preston Isner (Bealeton, Virginia) hit for 15 points. Carrington Miller (Bingham, Maine) chipped in 7 points and ripped down 10 rebounds.

CM falls to 8-5 overall.

Miller plays big role for CMCC basketball team
The former Valley standout has shined after moving into the starting lineup.

Moving into CMCC’s starting lineup this season, Miller has been one of the Mustangs’ top players. Miller leads the team with a 16.9 points per game scoring average, seventh-best in the Yankee Small College Conference. Miller’s 8.8 rebounds per game also lead the Mustangs and is fourth-best in the conference. “He’s the most improved player on our team,” CMCC head coach Dave Gonyea said of Miller. The Mustangs improved to 9-5 (5-0 in conference play) Sunday after a 91-88 victory over UMaine-Machias. CMCC hosts Southern Maine Community College on Thursday...

DeRosby dials long distance, steers SM past CM

UBURN — The plan was a relatively safe, easy pass over the top for a close, tying basket. The alternative was something a little more high-risk from farther out. When the first strategy didn't work Thursday night for the Southern Maine Community College men's basketball team, the Seawolves opted for Plan B. It was gutsy shot of desperation, but high risk brought a big reward. Waterville's Jordan DeRosby drilled a 3-pointer from the left corner to lift SMCC to a thrilling 73-72 win over Central Maine Community College at Kirk Hall...

VTC thumps Mustangs

Despite Xavier Colbert's (Manassas, VA) 16-point outburst and a stellar defensive effort on VTC's Jamal Hughes, the Green Knights thumped CM 74-59 for the Mustangs second loss in two days. The Mustangs trailed most of the game and couldn't get any momentum.

CM shot a miserable 24% from the field and with the exception of Breyon Graves three late in the second half couldn't drop the three ball all game. Travel, fatigue and early second semester play can account of some of the shooting performance as CM didn't have the spark and drive necessary to compete.

The squad has a week to prepare for their Saturday home game (3:00pm) vs. the College of St. Joseph's (VT).

CSJ does it again, defeats Mustangs

Despite placing 3 players in double figures, the Mustangs couldn't seal the win losing to the Fighting Saints of the College of St. Joseph's in overtime 94-86.

The home Mustangs went down 70-65 with 3-minutes in regulation, cutting the lead to 1 with less than 5 seconds to play. Tim Flannagan (Providence, RI) went to the line and hit the back end of two shots with 3.2 seconds remaining to tie the game up 75-75.

Preston Isner (Bealtown, VA) led the charge scoring all his game high 21 points in the second half and 8 of those in the last 3 minutes to push the game into overtime. In the overtime the home team missed back to back put backs and went down by four 79-75. Two costly turnovers and missed opportunities went by the board and the Mustangs left the contest on the losing end.

Xavier Colbert (Manassas, VA) added 18 points and Carrington Miller (Bingham, ME) chipped in with 17 points.
