All games are scheduled every 1 and 15 minutes except on Sunday's between the semi-finals and finals which has a 30 minute break.

All officials are volunteer, pool play has 2 officials and all tourney games will have 3 officials.

This event has been the premier basketball talent wise event in Maine the past 5 years as many current and former college players from all levels take part.

Players come from all 6 of the New England States and last years winners DID WE? from Boston returns to defend their 2016 title.

Teams come from as far away as Massachusetts and New Hampshire to compete.

St.Josephs College in Standish, Maine where Noonan played his College ball usually sends and 1 or 2 alumni teams.

Noonan died tragically in an automobile accident 6 years ago this past April on the road returning to the St. Joe's Campus. This event is held anually in is memory.

The beautiful outdoor basketball court on the campus is dedicated to him in his memory.

As good a basketball player as Clark was he was an even better human being and a great competitor s I knew him personally as I gave him shooting lessons during the spring of his junior year in high school. Very, very coachable.

Maine Basketball Report (MBR) wins 6th annual Noonan Memoria

Postby bcbc55 » Sun Jun 18, 2017 8:50 pm

The Maine Basketball Report (MBR) made up of all former Maine High School players and some college players defeated the two time consecutive defending champions the "The Did We?" team 73-60 out of Boston in the finals of the 6th annual Noonan Memorial Basketball Tournament held at Bangor High school's Fred "Red" Barry gym on Sunday.

The MBRers had to win 4 games Sunday to win this event. In the prelims they won easily 91-48, beat Just Hoops 102-66 in the quarter-finals, edged the Monks 58-54 in the semi's and then handled Did We? in the finals.

The Did We? team was made up with all out-of-state former and current college players.

In 2014 a team made up of former Maine high school and current college players won this event. So Mainers have competed successfully winning 2 of the 6 times
this event.

In 2015 a team coached by Carl Parker made up of entirely Maine High School juniors to be seniors high school players got all the way to the finals before losing a close game to the Did We? team from Boston. So 3 of the 6 Noonan Memorial Tournies have got to the finals, that is 50%.

Also, this year the Class Acts team got to the semi-finals and they were made up of former Maine high school and former college players.

This is the premier basketball talented event held in Maine each of the past 6 years held at one basketball site.

Mainers have more then held their own in this event each year, proving once again that Mainers can compete successfully against out-of-state college competition.

Fans enjoyed 30 pool play games on Friday and Saturday and the 16 team 15 game single elimination tourney on Sunday.

Good sized crowds watched some outstanding basketball in this 45 game event 3 day event, especially on Sunday when it was in a one and done situation for all 16 teams.
that advanced out of pool play.
