That being said Fort excels at what Woodland and Dexter don't, and that's 3 point shooting and ballhandling. Fort has 6 kids in the rotation that can knock down a 3, and they have the luxury of having numerous experienced and confident ball handlers. Fort may be undersized, but they are sound rebounders as well. I just don't see GSA being able to turn Fort over and dominate them on the boards like they've been able to do to their opponents this year. GSA is easily the best team in all of C, but with no close games all year, how will they react if say Fort is hanging around in the 4th.

I fully agree
FORT FAIRFIELD has 3 point shooters and ball handlers

This will be GSA toughest game

GSA is very good and I'm not betting against them but this will not be a blowout

GSA 56
FF. 45

Fort Fairfield boys use total team effort to beat Schenck in C semifinal

... Schenck senior Justin Thompson led all players with 32 points, nine rebounds and a block. Senior Chris King chipped in with 10 points and four rebounds.

Fort Fairfield coach Logan McLaughlin, who will be coaching in his second regional championship in the last three years — Fort Fairfield finished as state runners-up in 2015 in Class D — said he was expecting a fast-paced game against Schenck.

“They like to get out in transition and run just like we do,” McLaughlin said. “Our big thing was we knew we were not going to stop [Justin] Thompson, so we focused on [Chris] King. If you give him any room, he has such a quick trigger shooting, so we tried to focus on him.”

George Stevens Academy boys handle Dexter to reach ‘C’ boys title game

... George Stevens’ blend of full-court man-to-man pressure and a half-court zone trap forced the Tigers into making harried decisions with the ball, and the Eagles were able to take advantage.

The Eagles held Dexter to three first-half field goals in building a 28-10 halftime lead that included two dunks from junior big man Max Mattson (12 points, two blocked shots).

“Our bigs run the floor really well,” Schildroth said. “Max is 6-7 and he beats everyone down the floor.”

Mattson showed why he is one of the more athletic and versatile post players in the state, as he’d start George Stevens’ fast breaks often with his quickness and great floor vision.

Minus ACL, Steele keeps going for Winthrop basketball team
With brace — and constant icings — senior forward overcomes injury to lift Ramblers.

... Soon, Steele’s optimism kicked in. He looked into braces he could use. He looked up athletes who played through torn ACLs. He talked to doctors about what it would take to return to the court, then talked with MacArthur to organize a plan.

“I love the game of basketball,” he said. “So obviously I was going to do whatever I could to play.”

Three weeks after the injury, he was back on the court. One week later, Jan. 5, he was back in a game, helping Winthrop to a road win over Hall-Dale.

“It’s mind-boggling, and it just blows my mind what he’s able to do,” MacArthur said. “I step back sometimes coaching and look out there and say ‘Holy cow, that’s crazy. That’s madness.’ ”

GSA outlasts Fort Fairfield for ‘C’ North boys basketball title

BANGOR, Maine — The juggernaut George Stevens Academy boys basketball team got tested Saturday night, but its status as Class C North champion remains intact for a second straight year.

Junior guard Taylor Schildroth — sick with a high temperature measured at 101 earlier in the day — scored a game-high 26 points and junior center Max Mattson flirted with a triple-double as the defending state champions fought off stubborn Fort Fairfield 59-45 at the Cross Insurance Center.

The undefeated and top-ranked Eagles (21-0) will face Winthrop for the state title here next Saturday night. Winthrop, also 21-0, defeated Madison 58-42 in the Class C South final.

Winthrop holds off Madison for C South title
Ramblers complete undefeated run to regional title.

... The team will try for its fourth state title next Saturday night in Bangor against Class C North champion George Stevens.

Jacob Hickey led Winthrop (21-0) with 26 points, including 15 in the first half as the Ramblers raced out to a 31-16 halftime lead. Hickey was presented with the Harry Edwards Award for the tournament’s most outstanding player.

“Our big goal this year was getting to the state championship. Anything else would have been kind of a lost season, in our opinion,” Hickey said.

Garrett Tsouprake added 19 points in the win.

Winthrop seals the deal in Class C South

..."That was our big goal this year, getting to the state championship. Anything else would have been kind of a lost season," senior guard Jacob Hickey said.

It is the Ramblers' first regional title since 2008. They will face defending state champion George Stevens Academy for the state championship next Saturday night at Bangor's Cross Insurance Center.

Hickey, a senior guard, was named the tournament's outstanding player for the second year in a row after scoring a game-high 26 points. Garrett Tsouprake added 19 points for the Ramblers (21-0). Sean Whalen led the Bulldogs (17-4) with 13 points.
