We're pleased to announce this year MBR 17th annual preseason extravaganza will be held at the Augusta Civic Center...

We invite all hoop fans to check out the early season action. Get an early look at players that you'll hear about all winter long .. Admission $5 for the day. ACC runs their famous concession area ..

To players and parent of: We'll begin inviting this week.

We'll ask for players to confirm their participation or if unable to play, we then invite the next player on our top player list. It always ends up with a great group of players representing their community in this north vs South by competition by grade .

We'll post rosters once all roster spots confirmed..

Why the sudden change in format for AS game?


It's been 17 years in the making .. We started the event (2001) at a time when social media, iphones, etc were not a part of media. We wanted to include and recognize players from the smaller schools as well as larger schools , so we presented games by school classifications.. It has been a special part of MBR history.. but we adapt, change and work to improve

Nowadays, twitter, FB, live streaming , phones create its own self-promotion tool for all communities, schools, etc.

So we are going to improve the event by promoting Maine's top 10 players by grade , a preseason view of the top players in this years upcoming senior class and in years to come .. This will make for an exciting weekend providing opportunities to showcase Maine Best !

Thx

Dan Hammond - Bryant (D2) 2002 Brunswick
Ralph Mims - Florida State (D1) 2004 Brunswick
Ryan Mclellen - Marine Corps Team 2003 Nokomis
Jason Hight UMaine (D1) walk-on 2003 Westbrook

Nik just signed a 2 year deal .... read more on Nik since 2009 viewtopic.php?f=3&t=66106&hilit=medley

What is the key to his success you may ask ? He has the skill set, but what separates players is the drive to be the best ! Nik played for us as a young player and we watched him all the way through . I

Did not realize that MBR was including middle school players in their All-Star weekend. Interested to see who is included. There are a number of good players in the greater Bangor area.
