Men's basketball: Hometown duo makes things happen for UMF

FARMINGTON — Nick Hilton's and Eric Berry’s basketball journey began in elementary school in Wilton, when the pair played together on an undefeated sixth-grade travel team.

Now the duo hope their skills and abilities can help the University of Maine at Farmington men’s basketball team gain a spot in the North Atlantic Conference playoffs.

Both were highly successful athletes while playing at Mt. Blue High School, graduating in 2012.

UNE Spoils UMF’s Season Opener Despite a Balanced Scoring Attack

FARMINGTON, Maine – The University of Maine at Farmington men's basketball team (0-1) had a balanced scoring attack with three starters scoring in double figures en route to a 76-62 loss to the University of New England (3-1) in Thursday night's season opener.

Sean Murphy (Westbrook, Maine/Westbrook) led the Beavers with 11 points and sank three shots from beyond the arc in his UMF debut. Nick Hilton (Wilton, Maine/Mt. Blue) and Anfernee Dent (Jackson, Miss./Daegu) added 10 points apiece. Eric Berry (Weld, Maine/Mt. Blue) was only two points shy of grabbing a double-double with eight points and matched a game-high with 10 rebounds.
UNE relied on the scoring of its senior captain, Devin Thompson, who charted a game-high 26 points on 10-of-19 shooting and nailed six three-pointers. CJ Autry contributed 11 points and five boards. Drew Coveney also had a double-double with a pair of dimes, 10 points and 10 rebounds, and dished six assists.

UMF's defense held UNE to 25% (9-26) from the floor in the first half, but the persistent Nor'easters found their groove in the second half and shot 46% from the field. The Beavers were feisty in the second half and tried to overcome a double-digit lead late in the final period, but UNE's shooting guided the team to the non-conference victory.

UMaine-Farmington hosts UMaine-Presque Isle on Saturday afternoon at 2:00 p.m.

St. Joe's holds off UMF charge

FARMINGTON — St. Joseph’s held off a late University of Maine at Farmington surge to take a 60-56 NCAA Division III non-conference men’s basketball win on Monday night in Dearborn Gymnasium.

An eight-point run to close the first half guided the Monks (2-1) to their first road win of the season, using key outside shooting to maintain the advantage until the final minute of the game.

“UMF did a good job getting us out of synch,” St. Joe’s coach Rob Sanicola said. “They got us out of rhythm and made a nice run at the end.”

Nick Hilton ready to lead UMF men’s basketball
Former Mt. Blue star has developed into one of the top forwards in the North Atlantic Conference.

Dick Meader laments that big men are getting harder and harder to find in Maine basketball these days. Late bloomers may be an even rarer commodity, which is why the longtime University of Maine at Farmington men’s basketball coach realizes what kind of gem he has in Nick Hilton.

Hilton, a senior forward for the Beavers, doesn’t fit the traditional definitions of a big man or a late bloomer. At 6-foot-4, 185-pounds, Hilton looks more like a slashing wing forward than a physical paint presence. He also had a fine career playing at Mt. Blue for Jim Bessey, now a UMF assistant coach. He was a Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference all-star who helped lead the Cougars to the 2012 Eastern A championship game
