I'm curious why Bouchard hasn't been more dominant at Bentley. Not that there is anything wrong with coming off the bench at a Div II school, but at one point in this forum there was legitimate disagreement over whether Bouchard or Mayo was the best Maine player. Has he dealt with injuries or just not finding the right role at Bentley?

Just my 2 cents. Kyle is a very well rounded player. Very unselfish as well. That league has outstanding players in it. I am sure he is concentrating hard on the team aspect

It is very hard to play in the NE-10. Tyler Gibson was the 2013 Gatorade Player of the Year in Massachusetts and played a total of 221 minutes in his career at Bentley.

That seems strange too. News articles say Gibson chose Bentley at the last minute after the UMass Lowell coach was honest with him and told him he wouldn't see much playing time and then he didn't get much playing time there either. Obviously some kids are getting a lot of playing time at Bentley. Maybe your game and skills have to match their style?

Would Bouchard have played more at UMaine? Especially this year?

Lots of hype of the Cole kid from BE on this site also. Was great in SMAA I thought his PT and points would be much higher. Same league as mentioned above. Lots of talent in that league.

The NE10 is a very good D2 league. Most people do not know how good D2 is, for that matter, the don't realize how good D3 is. There are more than 130 high schools playing basketball in Maine, there are less than 20 D3 colleges playing basketball in Maine. Just those numbers alone tell you how difficult it is to make a college team and that does not include ball players from other states or countries. It is more difficult than most assume to play college basketball.

Junior Sean Jany (Westbrook, Maine) scored a game-high 42 points to lead three players in double-figures as the University of Southern Maine Huskies defeated the University of New England Noreasters 97-88 in a non-conference men's basketball game Wednesday night at Harold Alfond Forum.
Jany's 42 points are good for third in Southern Maine single-game records

There is no doubt that is true, but I guess I would expect that a Maine, or even a Massachusetts in the case of Gibson, Mr. Basketball winner would be able to play a fairly dominant role in Div II unless there was something about the style of play in these schools that is not a good match for these players that were basically lauded as the best high school basketball players from their State.

TOM: Mileikis played well in St. Joe's 66-54 loss to D-1 UMaine at the "PIT" earlier this year.
