NYA's terrific season ends with semifinal loss to Winthrop

... AUGUSTA—A season to remember ended with a game to forget.

Thursday evening at the Augusta Civic Center, some 72 hours after the program’s biggest win in years, the North Yarmouth Academy boys’ basketball team hoped to produce another fond memory, but instead, the Panthers’ Class C South semifinal showdown against top-ranked Winthrop resulted in a nightmare scenario as NYA’s hopes were quickly dashed in a flurry of turnovers and fouls.

Despite turning the ball over eight times and losing senior point guard Haven Cutko for several minutes due to two quick fouls, the fourth-seeded Panthers hung tough in the first period and thanks to a heroic effort from freshman sensation Te’Andre King, they only trailed by a point, 10-9, after eight minutes.

Unbeaten Winthrop knocks off NYA
The Ramblers score 10 straight points to open the second quarter and roll past the Panthers, 52-29.

... fter leading 10-9 in the first quarter, the Ramblers scored the first 10 points of the second, grabbed a 26-11 halftime lead and were never threatened.

“We couldn’t get into an offensive rhythm,” NYA Coach Jason Knight said.

NYA’s 6-foot-3 freshman center, Te’Andre King, was the Panthers’ only offensive threat, scoring 19 points. Guard Jacob Hickey led Winthrop with 16 points and 6-8 center Cam Wood added 15.

Winthrop C South-fina bound after suffocating North Yarmouth

... "Our defense was what we hang our hats and tonight, we did something special," MacArthur said. "When you hold a team like that to 29 points, that's impressive."

On the offensive side, Winthrop benefited from Hickey's perfect 8-for-8 shooting from the free-throw line to start to pull away. After NYA's Haven Cutko picked up his third foul and a Panthers technical foul, Winthrop went on a 8-2 run to close out the half, including a hoop in transition started by a block from Wood. The bucket gave Winthrop a 26-11 lead into the locker room at the half.

"I ask so much of Cam. He has progressed so much for us this year," MacArthur said. "For a sophomore that size, he's constantly getting better because of the work he puts in. He's able to do things for us that no one else can do, simply because of his size."

Madison dethrones Waynflete
The defending Class C South champions fall in the regional semifinals, 53-48.

... “It was a game of inches,” Waynflete Coach Rick Henry said. “The kids played really well. It was one of those games where you lose and you think you played pretty well. My kids can walk out of here with their heads held high because of what they accomplished.”

In the fourth quarter, the score was tied or the lead changed hands eight times before Sean Whalen completed a three-point play to send Madison into a 50-47 lead with 1:53 remaining. Whalen, who had 11 points, sank two free throws with six seconds left to nail it down.

“We just kept our composure, played tough and took care of the basketball down the stretch,” Madison Coach Jason Furbush said.

Not sure if there was private school bias in the Waynflete game as well, but lopsided officiating has never been more evident than in the Winthrop NYA game. I'm not saying the outcome would've been different, as Winthrop is still a very good team, but fouling out NYA's four best players is a good way to hand it to Winthrop. 27 team fouls, and many of them were offensive. The #1 seed in C South doesn't need any additional help. Whenever a Winthrop player hit the floor, a player control foul was called. I agree that one of the three was by far the worst. It also wasn't a good look that the Winthrop coach appeared to be having chummy conversation with the referees fairly often on the sidelines. NYA certainly didn't play well, but they were taken out of the game by a third team on the court. The Hyde School has had its position filled

It's a shame it started with the Wiscasset/Hyde game from way back.
This should be addressed by the MPA , on two fronts . One the reffing first. Two come up with a solution that addresses dorm students/ private schools. There are a couple of obvious solutions but they are not completely equitable to all but better than now. Put the schools in their separate division. Or just add them to AA so AA can have all the cannon fodder they need for their division tourney.

Lol @ the officials having a bias against private schools. The fact of the matter is that many of these private school players are a little rough around the edges and it comes back to haunt them in the tournament where every ticky tacky infraction is called. Hyde school leaving the MPA just taught their students how to blame someone and quit when things don't go your way.

In the words of one FF Fan it doesn't look good for Fort tomorrow night! This was said halfway thru the fourth Quarter of the GSA - Dexter game.
The Dexter fans were sitting on their hands 2 mins into the game!

GSA is going to be tough to beat for sure, it would take a perfect game from Fort just to keep the game from being a blowout. 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.
