Seawolves Get Through CanAm Tournament Unscathed

Auburn - In game two of this weekend's CanAm tournament the Seawolves were able to come away with a 63-59 win over the University of New Brunswick - St. John, mostly due to their domination on the offensive glass. SMCC tallied 27 offensive rebounds, including six from center Carlos Gonzalez (Lewiston, ME) which resulted in 14 second chance points. Meanwhile, UNB only had nine offensive boards and seven second chance points.

Trailing by 12 at the break, UNB-St. John rallied in the second half, pulling ahead 55-54 with 9:10 remaining in the contest but Seawolves' shooting guard Josh Tuplin (Bath, ME) halted the UNB momentum when he answered with a made three pointer that put SMCC back on top 57-55. The Seawolves maintained the lead for the remaining 8:55 to eventually come away with the 63-59 triumph. Tuplin led the SMCC offense with 12 points to go with three rebounds and two assists. Gonzalez ended with 10 total rebounds and nine points.

The Seawolves are off to a hot start, going 2-0 in opening weekend. They will look to continue the streak on November 1st when the play their first home game against Navy Prep at 1pm.

Tuplin Leads Seawolves Past Berkeley

South Portland - He may be "old" be he's still got it! Josh Tuplin (Bath, ME), who returns to the Seawolves after having played for the 2009 team, put on a stellar shooting performance today against the Knights of Berkeley College (NY). The 26-year-old veteran poured in 29 points on 9-13 shooting, including 6-10 from beyond the arc in 26 minutes of play, leading the Seawolves to an 81-79 victory over the Knights.

The Seawolves jumped out to an 8-0 lead in the first two minutes after a Carlos Gonzalez (Lewiston, ME)jump shot and made free throw, a Grayson Waterman (Berwick, ME) three pointer and an Atencio Martin (Kittery, ME) layup. The Seawolves' remained in the drivers seat for most of the first half until Knights' guard Tasheen Carrow drill a three pointer to give Berkeley the 26-24 lead. Back and forth action for the remainder of the first left the Seawolves trailing by four, 39-35, entering the break.

In second half action the Knights came out strong, building their lead to nine, 46-37 but a three pointer by Seawolves' point guard Jordan DeRosby (Waterville, ME) at the 16:46 mark sparked a comeback run by SMCC. The 9-2 run over a two minute stretch was capped off by one of Tuplin's six made three pointers, giving the Seawolves a one point edge, 49-48. The biggest lead for either team for the remaining 14 minutes came at the 7:47 mark when a pair of made free throws by Kevin Fabian (Lawrence, MA) gave the Seawolves a five point lead that lasted thirteen seconds until Berkeley responded with a made layup to bring the spread back down to three. The final lead change came with one minute remaining, the Knights' were clinging to a 79-78 lead when Atencio Martin capitalized on a baseline jumper to put SMCC back on top. A missed shot opportunity by Berkeley resulted in a Tuplin rebound and a trip to the free throw line, where he connected on the back end of two shots to solidify the 81-79 victory.

The Seawolves are off to a hot start, sporting a 4-0 record, and will look to remain perfect when they play Bridgton Academy on Wednesday night at 6pm.

Wolverines Hand Seawolves First Loss

Bridgton - Tonight the Seawolves traveled to Bridgton Academy where their undefeated streak was brought to halt with a 67-60 loss to the Wolverines. Bridgton sealed the victory at the 1:15 mark when a loose ball scramble with ten seconds left on the shot clock resulted in a made three point attempt by the Wolverines' Jamal White to put his team up seven. Despite their best efforts, the Seawolves' were unable to bridge the gap during the final 1:15.

Combining for more than half the Seawolves' total offense were combo guard/forwards Tyheem Simon (Queens, NY) and Atencio Martin (Kittery, ME) who scored 19 and 18 points respectively.

The Seawolves, not 4-1, will begin their conference schedule on Saturday the 15th at home against Vermont Tech at 3pm.

SMCC hoops teams looking for big things in 2014-15

SOUTH PORTLAND—Southern Maine Community College's men's basketball team is off to a nearly perfect start this season and the women's squad is showing signs of promise as well.

Auspicious beginnings
Matt Richards is now in his 12th season as the coach of the SeaWolves men's program and has been pleasantly surprised as to what he's witnessed so far, considering the team welcomed 11 new players.

"We're off to a better start than I thought we'd be," said Richards. "When you graduate an All-American point guard (Jose Nouchanthavong) and a couple kids who played in your program for a couple years, it's tough."

SMCC, which went 21-9 a year ago, reaching the Yankee Small College Conference semifinals before losing to St. Joseph (Vt.), 79-65, opened the 2014-15 campaign with wins over St. Thomas University (66-59), University of New Brunswick (63-59), Navy Prep (84-80, in a double overtime thriller) and Berkeley of New York City (81-79) before falling at Bridgton Academy (67-60). The SeaWolves bounced right back with wins over Vermont Tech (70-53), Unity (97-53) and Hampshire College (90-44). Atencio Martin had 18 points at Unity, while Carlos Gonzalez had 13 at Hampshire College.

Seawolves Ward Off Clippers, Remain Unbeaten in YSCC Play

South Portland - This afternoon, the Seawolves, currently ranked number one in the YSCC East, battled against the number three Clippers of UMaine-Machias. Both teams were sporting spotless conference records entering today's contest but after 40 hard fought minutes the Seawolves handed the Clippers a 90-77 loss.

1:09 into the game, Seawolves' standout Atencio Martin (Kittery, ME) hit a shot from beyond the arc to put SMCC on top 3-0, a lead they would not relinquish throughout the game. The Seawolves shot a stellar 52.8% from the floor in the first half, including Martin's perfect 3-3 performance, in comparison to the Clippers' 32% shooting.

Over the next six minutes UMM outscored SMCC 19-9, thanks in part to seven points from Clippers center Ivory Sneed, to close the gap to just 12 points. The game went back and forth for four minutes until an Antwan Ruise layup at 1:42 pulled the Clippers to within 10 but SMCC answered with back to back layups from Alexander Hartford (Naples, ME) and Jordan DeRosby (Waterville, ME) giving SMCC an 89-75 lead with under a minute to play.

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...
