You'll never meet a better kid than David Keohan, congrats to him and his family and well deserved! Maine is producing a lot of D2 kids because what do D2 coaches want? Overlooked D1 players. As our state university doesn't recruit here, the D2 programs pick up excellent value on players who would be D1 if they grew up out of state. Again, congrats David, he can put the rock in the basket! :)

fromthebench: Excellent post.

Couldn't agree more about why Maine kids end up at D-2 or D-3 schools and not D-1. Many over the years have been overlooked.

If they want to go D-1, they need to go to Prep school for a year after graduating from high school.

Look how Bentley has lived off Mainers. 6'5" forward/guard K. Hyland-South Portland, 6'6" forward T. McFarland-Camden, 6'7" point guard A. Furness, Cheverus/Wells, 6'6" forward K. Bouchard-Houlton, 6'5" off guard Z. Gilpin, Hampden and prep school, all were on the same team at the same time at Bentley.

In fact, Maine should have played Maine them then the Maine current coaching staff would know how Mainers stacked up against out-of-state and international recruits. Play them as the first game of the pre-season exhibition games at the Cross Center in Bangor and it would have drawn a good crowd.

Play them instead of USM and UMFK. Whoops they lost to them didn't they?

Most of those Bentley players were all capable of playing D-1. especially at UMaine. Most were certainly as skilled as 6'7" forward Andrew Fleming from Oxford Hills who was certainly was good enough to have a good year for UMaine as a freshmen last year.

Just my opinion having followed Maine bsketball since the early 50's. Their best seasons were when Mainers played. Last winning season at UMaine was 2009-10 when they went 19-10 with 3 Maine starters...Barnies, McNally and Bernal and could have had 2 more Socoby and Cook if they hadn't left the team.

Trivia question: Since 1949 Which 2 Maine Men's head basketball coaches had a winning pecrentage for their years at UMaine with their key player(s) being Mainers?
