With game in doubt, Winthrop boys basketball team’s poise came through
Veteran savvy, determination helps Ramblers reach expectations of C South title

... “I thought of that, too,” coach Todd MacArthur admitted.

But MacArthur also knew he had a team of veterans. One that had had its heart broken in this game a year ago, and that was playing this season as a crusade to make up for that defeat. And one that, with that chance at hand, wasn’t going to let it get away.

“We weren’t going to lose that game,” MacArthur said. “I did have maybe a few gray hairs pop up. But they’re going to find a way.”

They did again Saturday. Top-seed Winthrop scored 10 of the last 11 points of the game, playing smart and collected down the stretch and acing the clutch moments to seal a 58-42 victory over third seed and Mountain Valley Conference rival Madison. It completed the season-long quest to make up for last year’s 43-41 C Final loss to Waynflete, a defeat that stung bad enough to linger into this season and make this winter about playing — and winning — one game.

The Maine Moment - GSA Boys Hoops

The Maine Moment for the week of February 20-26 goes to the boys basketball team from George Stevens Academy. The Eagles used high-flying athleticism to earn their second Class C North title in a row. GSA will now play to defend last year's state championship, when they meet Class C South champion Winthrop in Bangor next weekend.

Depth charged: Winthrop basketball’s plethora of role players helps set it apart
Ramblers run deep with contributors on both ends of the court.

... “That’s what got us going,” coach Todd MacArthur said.

It also marked what just may be the most dangerous asset for a Winthrop team looking to finish off an undefeated season with its first Gold Ball since 2008. As strong as the Ramblers’ starting quintet is, it’s their depth that has helped them — and sometimes carried them — throughout a peerless regular season and playoff run.

“It’s a wonderful feeling … to know that you can go 10 deep and the level of play doesn’t drop,” said MacArthur, whose team goes into Saturday’s matchup with Cass C North champion George Stevens at 22-0. “It brings the level of the whole program up, and I think that’s why we’re at the position we are.”

Winthrop's Steele, Scott even more grateful for one more game

... "It's certainly a privilege to know that this will be our last game no matter what," guard Nate Scott said. "We're certainly all excited, and focused."

The Ramblers are particularly excited because they'll have eight seniors in uniform. They could just as easily "only" have six.

Any senior athlete dreams of the last game of their high school career being the most important one they've ever played. None of the senior Ramblers are taking this opportunity for granted, least of all Scott and teammate Spencer Steele.

Good luck to Winthrop tomorrow against GSA. It should be a great game. Winthrop has 8 seniors and some unfinished business to take care of.

Is it too early to start thinking about next year? Hall Dale returns 9 out of their top 11 players including all 5 starters. If the youngsters continue to improve and get stronger they may be next year's version of Winthrop in the South.

After dazzling seasons, Winthrop and George Stevens set for duel
Ramblers and Eagles to meet in Class C final in matchup of 21-0 teams

... “Winthrop’s a good team, really well-balanced, very well-coached. I think we match up with them pretty well,” George Stevens coach Dwayne Carter said. “They do a lot of things similar to what we do, so I’m looking forward to it. It should be a really good game.”

It’s the first time this season Winthrop can play the underdog card. Eighteen regular season wins and three playoff victories by an average of 23.7 points is hard to beat, but considering the championship they’re defending and 26-game winning streak of their own, the Eagles can do it.

“If they’re not the same team, they’re a better team,” Ramblers coach Todd MacArthur said of Stevens, which returns four of the five starters from last year’s championship team. “You’ve got a highly athletic team, a highly explosive team, a team that is dangerous from 84 feet. … They’re probably the team to beat. We understand what they’re able to do, and we have much respect for them. But it doesn’t mean we’re not going to show up.”

By far the best of the boys championship games. Shildroth is an assassin.

Chase 3-pointer caps rally as GSA edges Winthrop for second straight ‘C’ boys title

... Winthrop regained the lead on a follow-up shot by 6-foot-8 center Cam Wood with 1:05 to go, but Percy Zentz made two free throws after grabbing an offensive rebound to leave the teams stalemated at 44-44 with 47.4 seconds remaining.

Winthrop worked the clock down to a timeout with 19.2 seconds left and when the Ramblers then tried to inbound the ball from the right wing, Schildroth tipped Brooks’ inbounding pass into the air and then knocked it off Brooks and out of bounds to give GSA the final possession.

Schildroth dribbled into a clogged lane before passing the ball back out to Chase, who was challenged by two Winthrop defenders but took one dribble to his left before launching from beyond the top of the key what turned out to be his fifth 3-pointer of the game.
