Mainers pursuing college basketball opportunities face daunting odds

only 3.9 percent of girls high school players nationwide go on to play college basketball in any of the NCAA’s three divisions.

... That makes the quest for NCAA Division I roster spots and the dream of a trip to the Final Four even more imposing, particularly for hopefuls from less-populated areas removed from the sport’s competitive mainstream.

According to a recent study done by the NCAA in conjunction with statistics provided by the National Federation of State High School Associations, only 0.6 percent of Maine girls high school players and 0.4 percent of the state’s boys high school basketball participants from 2013 to 2016 continued their basketball careers at Division I programs after graduation.

Maine is tied with Hawaii for the fifth-lowest percentage in the boys rankings, ahead of only Wyoming (0.2 percent), North Dakota (0.2), South Dakota (0.3) and Alaska (0.3). It has the lowest rate among New England states behind Connecticut (1.4 percent), Rhode Island (0.7), Massachusetts (0.6), New Hampshire (0.6) and Vermont (0.5). ... ting-odds/
