Haven't heard anything...They must have broken team rules or something.
They like to keep things like that hushed-up.

I have heard that Matthews received a double technical in his last game and therefore is suspended for this playoff game...

Windham upends Deering, 51-47
The sixth-seeded Eagles cap a night of upsets with a win in the Class AA North quarterfinals.

... Windham, despite its low seed, is the only team to defeat Edward Little, beating the Eddies 60-58 on Jan. 24.

The Eagles showed they’re capable of beating anyone – even Deering, which handled Windham 62-41 in a season opener.

Mike Gilman led Windham with 18 points. His two free throws with 1.2 seconds left clinched the victory.

Nick Curtis added 15 points and Dierhow Bol scored 10.

AA North boys' quarterfinal: Windham upsets Deering, faces Edward Little next

... Jean Claude Butera led Deering with 12 points, while Raffaele Salamone added nine points.

Salamone missed a 3-pointer that would have tied it in the final seconds. Butera grabbed the offensive rebound and was fouled, sending him to the line with 2.1 seconds to go.

He made the first, then missed the second deliberately off the back of the rim in order to give the Rams a chance at a game-tying shot. The ball went out of bounds off the Rams, and Gilman hit two free throws with 1.2 seconds remaining to clinch it for the Eagles.

Gorham stifles Sanford
The Rams get just their fifth win of the season but are headed to the Class AA South semifinals

... Using a quick-reacting, modified 2-3 zone with some triangle-and-two mixed in, the sixth-seeded Rams held third-seeded Sanford scoreless for more than 12 minutes in the middle two quarters Thursday night in a 42-31 regional quarterfinal victory at the Portland Expo.

“It’s a zone with a little wrinkle,” said Gorham Coach Mark Karter. “They have two very good players in (Ethan) Belanger and (Brad) Bouchard, so our goal was to make sure we tried to neutralize them.”

Belanger scored a team-high 10 points but was limited to six shots. Bouchard scored the first two baskets of the game and didn’t score again, finishing with five points.

Oxford Hills edges Cheverus in overtime thriller, 53-50
The Vikings win the game at the foul line in overtime to advance in Class AA North quarterfinals.

... Still, the Vikings couldn’t shake the Stags. Each time Oxford Hills took a lead late in the fourth, Cheverus responded. A basket by the Vikings’ Fleming (13 points) was countered by a 10-footer from Matt Duchaine. Verrier (13 points) scores inside, only to see Owen Burke (11 points) counter with two foul shots to tie it at 43. Two free throws by Keniston with 1:25 left were matched by a 10-foot floater by Shibles 17 seconds later.

Carson hit a foul shot with 10.2 seconds left to give Oxford Hills a 46-45 lead. Casale, who scored 25 points, tied it with one foul shot with three seconds left.

There were two more ties in overtime, the last with 2:07 left on two Casale foul shots. The Stags were called for a three-second lane violation with 53.2 seconds left, leading to two foul shots by Verrier with 27.1 seconds left. Fleming hit one foul shot with 6.1 seconds left to secure it.

**********************************************************************************************************
AA North boys' quarterfinal: Big men come up big for Vikings in win over Stags

... Matthews drew two technical fouls and was ejected from the Stags' regular-season finale against Portland last week, which by rule rendered him ineligible for their next game. That led Oxford Hills coach Scott Graffam to start a bigger lineup that included Carson, a 6-foot-4 sophomore, and Keniston, a rugged 6-3 junior.

As a result, the Vikings dominated the boards, particularly the offensive glass, for most of the game. Carson, Keniston and 6-5 sophomore Matt Fleming (13 points) combined to haul in 14 offensive rebounds, nearly three times what the entire Cheverus team collected.

"We really haven't played the three of them together very much this year, which is probably stupid. But matchups worry me, being a man (defense) guy," Graffam said.

**********************************************************************************************

Short-handed, valiant Cheverus ousted by Oxford Hills in OT thriller

... The Stags had one final look and a 35-foot prayer from Shibles was almost answered, but it was barely off-target, leaving Cheverus three points short as the Vikings were able to celebrate a palpitating 53-50 victory.

The Stags got 25 points from Casale in his swan song, but it wasn’t enough, as their season ended at 11-8 and Oxford Hills improved to 13-6 and advanced to meet top-ranked, defending state champion Portland (16-2) in the AA North semifinals Tuesday at 9:30 p.m. in Augusta.

“I’m extremely proud of how we battled and left it all on the floor,” said Cheverus coach Ryan Soucie. “We shouldn’t be ashamed of our effort. We’ll leave with our heads held high. The odds were stacked against us and I knew the guys would respond and they did. I’m proud to be their coach. It’s just a tough way to go out.”
