Wells tops Maranacook in Class B South
The third-seeded Warriors win, 44-29, in a tournament quarterfinal

Wells High advanced in the Class B South boys’ basketball tournament with a 44-29 quarterfinal win over Maranacook on Saturday morning at the Portland Expo.

The third-seeded Warriors (14-5) move on to Thursday’s semifinals at Cross Insurance Arena, against the winner of the quarterfinal game between No. 2 Spruce Mountain and No. 7 Lisbon.

No. 6 Maranacook finished at 7-12.

Wells shuts down Maranacook in B South boys' quarterfinal

... “Third quarter was huge,” Wells coach Troy Brown said. “The last two years with this group, we’ve struggled in the third quarter. We’ve come out in games and let teams get away from us or let teams back in games, and today we didn’t do that.”

The Warriors entered the game knowing they should have an advantage in the post with Deandre Woods and Cameron Cousins. The inside game, particularly Woods, helped Wells grind out that 10-point halftime lead. In the third quarter, the Warriors were even bigger in the post.

“I thought they did a nice job of doubling our bigs, and we didn’t do a great job of passing in the first half,” Brown said. “Then my bigs started to realize if we square to the hoop, another big might be open. You saw it a little bit, you know, Deandre hit Cam, and then Cameron hit Tyler Bridge a couple times, and we started to open up a bit of a lead with some point-blank buckets.”

Orono Red Riots Defeat Presque Isle In Tough Contest

Orono and Presque Isle were both riding long winning streaks heading into Saturday’s quarterfinal match-up at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor. One of them had to end.
The No. 4 Red Riots and No. 5 Wildcats had nine-game and eight-game streaks, respectively. But when the buzzer sounded, Orono came away with its tenth straight victory, a 54-46 win over a tough Presque Isle team.
Senior guard Nate Desisto led the Red Riots with 23 points. Jake Koffman added 12 points.

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

Orono boys use experience to beat Presque Isle in ‘B’ boys quarterfinal

...“Any time you are in the tournament you have to expect tough games,” Orono coach Jason Coleman said. “Presque Isle made a run and came back to make it close, but I think our experience helped us in the end.”

Orono opened up an early lead, bolting to an 8-1 advantage early in the first quarter and led 13-6 by the end of the period. Presque Isle came to life in the second stanza, outscoring Orono 14-10 to pull within three (23-20) at halftime.

In the third quarter, Presque Isle made it a tight contest, as Orono never led by more than seven points.

“We were able to make enough foul shots at the end to keep it a two- or three-possession game,” Coleman said. “We have two basketball players, and [for] the rest of the guys this [basketball] is their secondary sport.”

#9 Washington Academy Raiders boys played a great game for 30.5 minutes against #1 Hermon Hawks; but then did not protect the basketball. The Raiders were up by 10 points with a minute and half to go. Hawks come back to make the needed plays to win, 55-51.

Yarmouth sends Gray-NG packing in quarterfinals

PORTLAND—Yarmouth’s boys’ basketball team has a simple motto.

It goes like this:

“Roll, Clips’.”

And the Clippers certainly rolled right through their first playoff test Saturday afternoon at the Portland Exposition Building.

Yarmouth, the top seed in the Class B South field, met No. 9 Gray-New Gloucester in a quarterfinal and it didn’t take long to get the good times rolling.

********************************************************************************************
Yarmouth cruises into Class B South semifinals
The Clippers take early control in a 71-44 victory over Gray-New Gloucester.

... Behind their inside players – 6-foot-7 senior Alek Medenica and 6-6 junior Nolan Hagerty – the Clippers controlled the boards, out-rebounding the Patriots 41-25, forced 19 turnovers and held them to just 29 percent shooting.

Medenica scored 22 points with 13 rebounds, four assists, three steals and three blocked shots while Hagerty added 10 points, eight rebounds, six steals and three assists.

“We limited them and the opportunities they had in the half-court,” said Yarmouth Coach Adam Smith. “I didn’t think we took care of the ball very well in the offensive end or I didn’t think we were focused well in the offensive end tonight.

http://www.pressherald.com/2017/02/18/b ... 9-gray-ng/

***********************************************************************************
Medenica, Clippers too much for Patriots

.... Yarmouth 6-foot-7 senior Alek Medenica finished with 22 points, 13 rebounds, four assists and three blocks, all game highs.

"He's a great player," Patriots coach Ryan Deschenes said. "For the most part, I felt we made him work for it. He had some openings here and there, but great seniors, great players are going to make plays in this venue, and he did."

Gibson Hartnett added 14 points for the Clippers. John Henry Villanueva was the only Gray-New Gloucester player to reach double figures with 10 points to go with six rebounds.

Dramatic rally helps No. 1 Hermon boys survive scare, edge Washington Academy in ‘B’ quarterfinal

...BANGOR, Maine — Facing an eight-point deficit against No. 9 Washington Academy of East Machias with 1:49 left to play, the top-seeded Hermon High School Hawks had to resort to a full-court press.

“You don’t want to press a team like WA because they have such quick guards and they do a lot of things off the dribble. But we were in a position where we had to,” said Hermon coach Mark Reed.

The desperate Hawks forced numerous turnovers with the press and turned them into points Saturday night en route to a 55-51 Class B boys quarterfinal triumph at the Cross Insurance Center.

“This shows the grit and character of the kids,” added a proud Reed, whose team scored the final 12 points.

Lincoln Academy ousted by Oak Hill
The Raiders pull out a 59-46 win in the Class B South quarterfinals

... “We had the opportunity we wanted,” Ball said. “They had all kinds of foul trouble.”

But the Raiders also had other weapons, especially Boston, a 5-6 dynamo who darts down the court while able to quickly pull up from the outside. He scored nine points in the first quarter.

“We lost (Bailey) and that’s our big guy. We needed to pull it together as a team,” Boston said. “I wanted my players to step up and play as a team. Luckily I was hitting some shots.”

*******************************************************************************************
Boston, Raiders pull away from Eagles

.."We lost (Bailey) and that's our big guy. I think we need to pull together and play as a team," Boston said. "We noticed that he was down (and) he got taken out of the game. We need to handle adversity... Luckily, I was just hitting some shots and whatnot every so often, but my teammates helped me get open... One guy can't beat five."

"He stepped up real big for us," Oak Hill coach Tom Smith said of Boston. "It was the moment that he wanted and he took advantage of it."

Austin Noble added eight points and seven rebounds and Darryn Bailey seven points and nine boards for the Raiders, who never trailed or were tied. Keyden Leeman led the Eagles with 21 points and Cody Tozier added 17 points.

Shink, Spruce shell Lisbon

... Shink displayed no remorse after he hit seven of his record-setting eight 3-pointers in the first half, paving the way for second-ranked Spruce Mountain’s 88-66 victory over seventh-ranked Lisbon (9-10) in a Class B South boys’ basketball quarterfinal at the Portland Expo on Saturday.

“I am always confident — just shoot it when I am open,” Shink said. “Coach is always behind me. He’s always supportive, always wants me to shoot when I am open. If I don’t shoot it, he’s always mad. If they are falling, they are falling. You get the ball in your hands, you want to shoot it every time. Yeah, I don’t have conscience.

The Phoenix (16-3) move on and up to face third-ranked Wells (14-5) on Thursday at the Cross Center in Bangor. The Warriors eliminated the No. 6 Maranacook Black Bears, 44-29, in a morning quarterfinal at the Expo.
