SJ And One Basketball Notes:

‘EL might be OK’

The Edward Little girls became the first team to defeat South Portland, the Class AA South leader, by winning 45-44 on Saturday.

“We were definitely underestimated,” sophomore guard Hannah Chaput said, “and anyone can beat any team if you work together, honestly.”

Head coach Chris Cifelli stressed the second part of Chaput’s statement after the game.

Local teams eyeing Gold Ball-Portland edition
( Portland, SP, Deering, Cheverus , MGA)

Hopeful
On the girls’ side, several teams figure to make tournament noise.

Portland, which won just three games and missed the playoffs last winter, went 12-6 this year, closing with a 71-35 loss at South Portland and a 42-36 victory at Deering. The Bulldogs fell behind early at the Red Riots and never could make a run. Gemima Motema had a team-high 12 points.

“Credit to South Portland,” said Portland coach Gerry Corcoran. “They’re the best team in the state and when they’re on, they’re awesome. They didn’t miss. I’m a basketball nut and that was great basketball.”

In the victory, Davina Kabantu had 13 points, including a clutch late 3-pointer that banked in off the glass, Motema added 10 (but she suffered a foot injury that could sideline her for the tournament) and Reagan Brown had 14 rebounds, to go with four points.

They may be retired, but Dick Whitmore and Ron Cote are still coaching basketball
The two longtime head coaches are assistants for the South Portland and Old Orchard Beach girls' teams

Dick Whitmore coached the Colby College men’s basketball team for 40 years and won 637 games.

Ron Cote was the face of Biddeford High basketball for 23 years, coaching both the boys and girls, and also coached at the University of New England for seven years.

Both retired as head coaches several years ago but aren’t done coaching yet.

Whitmore has been an assistant coach to Lynne Hasson for the South Portland girls’ basketball team for the last three years. The Riots are ranked first in Class AA South with a 17-1 record.

Tuesday’s game went back and forth, with Thornton taking a 17-12 first-quarter lead, and the Scots moving ahead 23-21 at halftime.

SCARBOROUGH 53, SANFORD 36: Sophie Glidden had 13 of her 19 points in the first half as the second-seeded Red Storm (16-3) used a 15-4 second quarter advantage to pull away from the seventh-seeded Spartans (4-15) in a Class AA South quarterfinal at Scarborough. Isabella Dickinson drained four 3-pointers and finished with 14 points for Scarborough. Paige Cote led Sanford with 13.
