PRELIM: Patriots knock off defending champs
Visiting Gray-New Gloucester hands Lake Region a 57-54 loss in a Class B South prelim.

NAPLES — Class B will have a new state champion in boys’ basketball.

Lake Region, the eighth seed, had three chances in the final 10 seconds to extend its title defense into overtime Tuesday night but came up short against No. 9 Gray-New Gloucester.

Four times in the fourth quarter the Patriots saw their lead shrink to one, but they never fell behind and came away with a 57-54 victory in a B South prelim.

PRELIM: Balanced scoring helps Patriots edge Lakers

... Josiah Rottari knocked down two clutch free throws to give the Patriots the three-point lead with 17.6 seconds left. Lake Region came out of a timeout and got the ball in the hands of top scorer Tyler Walker (16 points, 10 rebounds), who missed his 3-point attempt to tie it. Tristen Chaine collected the long rebound for the Lakers and took his turn to tie it but missed.

Jake Kackmeister came down with the rebound for the Patriots but was called for traveling, giving the Lakers the ball under their own basket with 2.8 seconds to go. Without a timeout, they set up another 3-point attempt by Walker at the buzzer, but it only drew iron.

MDI and Hermon both play on tiny courts, Orono plays on a larger court and has played 6 games in 2 years on the Cross Center Court. MDI played 1 last year - a huge loss to the slow, unathletic Orono boys. As a Calais fan I watched them give our boys everything they could handle 2 years ago. While WA and Central loom as large challenges for them and should be considered the favorite, the Red Riots shouldn't be afraid of an MDI team they handily bounced out of the first round last year.


Have you ever been to Hermon? Obviously not, not a "Tiny" court, most likely one of the best facilities in the League. Neither MDI or Hermon have smaller floors. And there is no way Orono can run with Hermon, are they a good team yes, can they win, yes.. but your comments kind of display your lack of knowledge of the B match ups. No way WA gets to the top either, they have no easy task of getting by Mt. View.. was down by 20+ to Hermon, and still lost by 15 w subs finishing most of the 4th.

I didn't say that they should be afraid of them. Just that I didn't think they could run with them. Their big guys looked tired on MDI's "small court" which looks bigger than Orono's but I didn't bring my tape measure. Hopefully we will see some of these good match ups.

Not to pile on Bluedevil but the Orono boys are far bigger then they were 2 years ago. No knock on Jake Koffman, the kid earned himself a full boat, but to your challenge there are dozens of kids that would beat him in the 40. That's just silly.
I think Orono does fine getting up and down the court. My question with them is getting to the rim. Desisto is the threat to get to the rim. A lot of the others in the rotation are more of a post presence and very similar players. Now if MDI or Hermon is having a off nite shooting then watch out cause Orono will kill you on the boards.
As for WA, I think they are a much better team then early in the year. The Sutton kid seemed to settle in and is playing well. Still not sure that I would put much money on them winning the north.

BlueDevils2016 you make some great points. Orono is alot quicker than people give them credit for.
Hozball22 you must have a horse in the race Im guessing. Which Hermon kid is yours? Please say the Varney kid, that kid is unreal. Havent seen him play much this season but did catch him play against Central. 20 points and 10 boards, that kid is the real deal. Hermon would not be in that #1 spot without him. Get on his back Hawks and lets see how far the kid can take you.

Preview: Hampden and Hermon boys prepare for tournament runs

HAMPDEN - As the preliminary rounds of the MPA high school basketball tournament begin, several top teams in the area will have to watch the scoreboard before knowing their opening opponents.

Hampden Academy and Hermon are two of them, both expected to make deep postseason runs. The teams hit the floor for a pre-tournament scrimmage on Tuesday in hopes of keeping their squads in game shape.

Oak Hill boys basketball embraces turnaround season
After 6-13 season, Raiders finish as fourth seed in Class B South.

... o a man, however, the Oak Hill players say the turnaround has been internal. There hasn’t been a hot-shooting freshman added to the mix, or a shot-challenging transfer, or a tenacious rebounder who’s finally getting the chance to start after time on the bench.

The Raiders are winning because they’re tightly knit. They know each other, so they trust each other.

“Our chemistry has gotten us to the next level,” senior forward Marcus Bailey said. “We’ve been playing with each other since third or fourth grade, back in travel league or rec leagues, with each other or against each other. It doesn’t matter.”
