C South boys preview: Winthrop unbeaten, but not unbeatable in South region
Ramblers deservedly the favorite, but upset-minded teams lurk.

... “These tournaments, if somebody gets hot at the right time, you never know.”

That first test for the Ramblers comes against No. 9 Wiscasset, which boasts one of the class’s best players in 6-foot-6 Ethan James. Winthrop can match that with height in 6-8 Cam Wood and 6-4 Garrett Tsouprake and scoring in Jacob Hickey, but MacArthur — despite 80-53 and 89-58 wins for his team over the Wolverines — respects what can happen if James gets hot.

“He can play outside on the perimeter and shoot the three-ball, and he also can bang down low and he can score in the post,” he said. “He’s dangerous, and we have to make sure we don’t let him go off.”

NYA erases deficit, shocks Hall-Dale in quarterfinals

AUGUSTA—The monkey is off their back and the resurgence is complete.

North Yarmouth Academy’s boys’ basketball team has returned to prominence.

Monday evening at a raucous Augusta Civic Center, the fourth-ranked Panthers ran the gamut of emotions from despair to hope to nervousness before settling for sheer joy in an improbable, palpitating come-from-behind victory over fifth-seeded Hall-Dale

*************************************************************************************************
NYA rallies to beat Hall-Dale
Jake Malcom hits a 3-pointer with 26 seconds left to lift the Panthers past the Bulldogs.

... Malcolm finished with 25 points, his fifth and final 3-pointer handing the Panthers their first lead since the 5:02 mark of the first quarter. Malcom got open when the Hall-Dale defense collapsed on Haven Cutko, who kicked the ball out to Malcom.

“It was a heat-of-the-moment kind of thing. It felt right at the moment, and my team got me the ball. All I had to do was put it in,” Malcom said.

Te’Andre King added 20 points for NYA.

“As I told the boys in the locker room, I’m so proud of this effort. These guys don’t give up,” NYA Coach Jason Knight said. “We’re down 12 at the half, 18 at one point, and this team has been resilient all year long. We play hard from tip to buzzer.”

************************************************************************************
Panthers come back from 18 down to beat Bulldogs

... Hall-Dale finished with 11 3 pointers as a team, one shy of tying the record. It made just two in the second half, opening the door for the Panthers.

Jake Malcom led the Panthers with 23 points and eight rebounds. Te-Andre King finished with 22 points and 12 rebounds despite foul trouble in the first half.

Jett Boyer led Hall-Dale with 20 points on six 3-pointers, while Ashtyn Abbott added 16 points.

Waynflete surges early, holds on late to upset Richmond

AUGUSTA—Throw the regular season record of the Waynflete boys’ basketball team out the window.

Because when the Flyers get to the Augusta Civic Center, anything is possible.

Monday evening, Waynflete, the defending regional champion, made a return visit to the building that has been so kind to it in recent seasons and even though the Flyers were seeded seventh for their Class C South quarterfinal against No. 2 Richmond, they entered the contest full of confidence.

http://www.theforecaster.net/waynflete- ... -richmond/

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

Waynflete holds off Richmond
The reigning Class C South champions build a big lead in the first half and survive a spirited comeback by the Bobcats.

... As it turned out, No. 2 Richmond narrowed the gap to three points before falling to defending regional champion Waynflete, 57-52.

Asker Hussein and Jack Meahl scored 15 points apiece for Waynflete (15-5), the No. 7 seed. The Flyers will face third-seeded Madison in the semifinals Thursday night.

Richmond had no answer in the first half for the faster, taller and quicker Flyers, who finished in traffic and knocked down seven 3-pointers while shooting 63 percent from the field. Waynflete led 40-25 at halftime.

“I don’t think we played one possession of zone defense,” Houdlette said. “The rest of it was man. They made some tough shots.”

http://www.pressherald.com/2017/02/20/b ... -richmond/

**************************************************************************************
Richmond comeback bid falls just short

...Zach Small had 18 points and Matt Holt scored 16 for Richmond, which pulled to 55-52 with just under three minutes to go but couldn’t get any of their final seven shots to fall. Cody Tribbet added 15 for the Bobcats, while Asker Hussein and Jack Meahl scored 15 points apiece for the Flyers.

“I’d go to war with them with anybody,” Houdlette said. “They leave it on the floor. We were together, no garbage. It was a good game.”

http://www.centralmaine.com/2017/02/20/ ... ust-short/

********************************************************************************************
Waynflete stuns second-seeded Richmond in C South quarter

... “I thought if we could get it down to 10 late in that third quarter, we would have a chance, and we did that,” Richmond coach Phil Houdlette said. “They battled. We are not the biggest team or the most skilled team, but we have a lot of fight. They leave it all on the floor.”

In the second half, the Flyers kept Richmond from tying the game, with the 6-foot-5 Deng blocking a key shot down the stretch.

“I am proud of the way they hung around and battled,” Waynflete (15-5) coach Rick Henry said. “I was pleased how they persevered. We were tentative on offense, but not on defense in the second half

Winthrop rolls over Wiscasset
Jacob Hickey scores 30 points as the Ramblers reach the Class C South semifinals.

... “That was a big thing for us, getting out early and getting our crowd into the game,” Hickey said. “Our first game against them, it was close. I think we were losing at the half or tied, something like that. … We wanted to make sure we got out in front of them quickly tonight.”

Ethan James scored 19 points for Wiscasset (10-10), but only six in the first half.

“We had to know where he was at all times,” MacArthur said. “One of the things about this group is they like challenges. Garrett Tsouprake guarded him, and he liked the challenge. … We hang our hat on our defense, and we did a good job tonight. We really did.”

http://www.pressherald.com/2017/02/20/b ... wiscasset/

*************************************************************************
Ramblers run over Wolverines

... "We knew we had a big challenge in front of us. You can't look past any team," Hickey said. "Throughout the season, we've learned that every team is very strong. We've had some close games and we wanted to bring it tonight, on the defensive end, definitely. Ethan James is a terrific player."

"The thing about our guys is them came in here focused," Winthrop coach Todd MacArthur said. "With what happened last year (losing in the regional final) having a little bit of a bad taste, they came in focused."

Madison evens score with Boothbay
The Bulldogs advance to the Class C South semifinals, beating the team that eliminated them in the first round a year ago.

... “That’s what we kept saying before the game. Two years in a row (we lost) in the first round, (and) we talked about it,” junior guard Sean Whalen said. “Losing was not an option today. We want to move on.”

Whalen scored 14 of his game-high 16 points in the second half, leading No. 3 Madison to a 63-41 win over No. 6 Boothbay. Madison (16-3) will face No. 7 Waynflete (15-5) in the semifinals Thursday at the Augusta Civic Center.

Last year’s regional quarterfinal loss to Boothbay (12-8) was on Madison’s mind, as was a regular-season loss to the Seahawks.

http://www.pressherald.com/2017/02/20/b ... -boothbay/

*****************************************************************************************
w/ post game video.....Big second half elevates Madison to C South semifinals

... In addition to a more attacking offense, Furbush also said that the Bulldogs were fortunate that Boothbay’s Kyle Ames cooled down after his 12-point first half. Ames was held scoreless after halftime.

“In the first half, we were getting out in transition, and we didn’t to that much in the second half,” Seahawks coach I.J. Pinkham said. “And I’ve got to give Madison credit, they played great man-to-man defense today. They took us right out of our offense — we were standing around.

“Defensively, we didn’t do a great job keeping Morales out of the paint. Because once he gets in there, a lot of bad things happen.”
