Colby to have three inducted in Maine Basketball Hall of Fame

WATERVILLE, Maine — The Colby College men’s basketball program will be well represented with three inductees into the Maine Basketball Hall of Fame on Sunday at the third annual induction ceremony at Cross Insurance Center in Bangor.

Mike McGee ’82, Harland Storey ’85, and Kevin Whitmore ’91 will be inducted at the noon event. Tickets are $55 each and include admission and a lunch buffet. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. and the ceremony takes place after lunch. Tickets can be purchased on the Maine Basketball Hall of Fame website.

Colby has 11 players and coaches inducted in the first three years of the Maine Basketball Hall of Fame.

McGee was an All-American during his sophomore season and was the fastest player in school history to reach 1,000 points. He ranks 15th in career scoring at Colby with 1,251 points, despite playing just 76 games and competing at a time with no 3-point shot. McGee, who went on to a terrific high school coaching career, was inducted into the New England Basketball Hall of Fame in 2013.

Storey was a two-time All-American in 1983 and 1985. He still ranks fourth all-time in scoring at Colby with 1,710 points in 92 games. Storey, who also did not play with the 3-point shot, is a member of the New England Basketball Hall of Fame.

Whitmore transferred from Dartmouth College and scored 1,357 points at Colby in three seasons. He currently ranks 13th all-time in scoring, was a 1991 All-American, and averaged more than 60 made 3-point shots (188 total) during his three years.
McGee, Storey, and Whitmore all played under Colby coaching legend Dick Whitmore. Kevin Whitmore is the son of Coach Whitmore.

Brad Moore ’75, Matt Hancock ’90, Dick Whitmore, and former assistant basketball coach John “Swisher” Mitchell were inducted in 2014. Former players Gene Hunter ’48, Ted Shiro ’51, John Edes ’58, and Ed Marchetti ’60 were inductees in 2015.

Another Whitmore to enter a Hall of Fame
Kevin Whitmore, a former standout at Colby College, to enter Maine Basketball Hall of Fame

When Kevin Whitmore was in high school and applying to colleges, he never considered Colby. Whitmore practically grew up on the Waterville campus, where his father, Dick Whitmore, was men’s basketball coach. Even as a first-year student at Dartmouth College, when he was looking to transfer to a Division III school, Colby wasn’t initially on Whitmore’s radar. Then Roy Dow, a friend and assistant basketball coach at Colby, asked him to consider coming home.

“Bowdoin was at the top of my list. The Colby thought had never crossed my mind,” Whitmore said. “But when I thought about it more, it made perfect sense to me. Of all the decisions in my life, that was one of the better ones.”

Whitmore transferred to Colby, where he played basketball for his father. In three seasons with the Mules, Whitmore scored 1,357 points, earning All-America honors as a senior in 1991. On Sunday, Whitmore will join his father in the Maine Basketball Hall of Fame.

... One of the most prolific players in the history of the University of Southern Maine Men’s Basketball program, Tim Bonsant finished his career with 1,616 points and presently ranks fifth on the Huskies’ All-Time scoring list. Bonsant was named the LEC Player of the Year for the 1990-91 season and earned NABC All-New England and Division III All-ECAC honors. Bonsant is still ranked in the top-10 in seven career statistical categories, including a school record 150 blocked shots. Bonsant led the Huskies in scoring during the 1989-90 and the 1990-91 seasons and led the team in rebounding for three consecutive seasons. Over his four-year career with the Huskies, Bonsant helped USM to an 85-32 record. Bonsant led the Huskies to the 1988-89 NCAA Division III Final Four, averaging 13.8 points and 8.0 rebounds a game and then posted career highs the following season, averaging 19.8 points and 9.8 rebounds per game and a second straight NCAA Regional Tournament. Bonsant concluded his four-year career in 1991 with his third straight trip to the NCAA Tournament and averaged 16.6 points and 8.7 rebounds per game.

Renee Heath Towne distinguished herself in two sports during her four years at Southern Maine. A member of the field hockey and softball teams, Heath Towne earned numerous conference and regional awards in both of her chosen sports. As a member of the softball team, Heath Towne served as the team’s captain in 2003 and 2004, helping the Huskies to a record of 108-56-2 and finished in the top seven of 11 career statistical categories. Heath Towne was named a National Fast-pitch Coaches Association Regional (NFCA) All-American in three consecutive seasons (2002-2004) and All-NEISCA player (2002-2004) and an All-LEC selection for all four years (2001-2004). Heath-Towne was one of the top field hockey players in the region as well, earning NFHCA All-Region and All-LEC honors. She is still in the top six in games played (4th, 89 games), points (5th, 91 points), goals (6th, 34 goals scored) and assists (3rd, 23 assists). During her senior season, Heath-Towne led the Huskies to a 17-6 record, the program’s first Little East Conference championship and an invitation to the NCAA Division III tournament, leading the Huskies to reach the Sweet 16.

Formed in 1986, the Little East serves as New England’s premier athletic conference for public institutions in NCAA Division III.
