XC_FAN, weren't you boasting for Nate Benoit from Brunswick a few weeks back, saying he's the only division 1 player in Maine?? Any idea where he has decided to go? I'm sure Duke or Kentucky must be looking at him :lol:

Know for a fact that Benoit had D1 interest from multiple schools, including a couple tournament teams. Benoit decided he would rather play right away than have to wait a couple years on the bench and is taking his talents to New England College where he will have an immediate impact and get a great education. "lol"


Not uncommon (including choosing D3 rather than D2, in fact some people would have been more successful and far less disappointed had they taken this route. Often, they transfer to the division beneath

Allaire to take hardwood talents to Maine Maritime Academy
At 6 feet 7 inches, Panther always the center of attention on court

... The 6-foot 7-inch Allaire, who was a Kennebec Valley Athletic Association first-team all-conference selection and led the Panthers to an undefeated regular season in 2016-17, averaged 17.8 points, 10.8 rebounds, three blocked shots and two assists as a senior.

Allaire, who plans to major in marine engineering operations, said MMA was the top school on his list, through others had recruited him as well.

“I’ve always known that is where I wanted to go,” he said. “As soon as I got accepted there I never even bothered to apply to another school. I applied early decision to MMA, I’m happy with that and it’s just awesome for me.”

“He’s made an excellent choice,” said Medomak Valley coach Nick DePatsy. “It’s a line of work I can see him doing for the rest of the life. It’ll be a good educational experience for him and a good fit for him to play basketball.”

Cody Tozier - Lincoln Academy to CMCC

Auburn, ME- Central Maine Community College Head Men's Basketball Coach Dave Gonyea is pleased to announce the commitment of Cody Tozier, a 2017 senior at Lincoln Academy, for the fall class of 2017. Tozier, a 6'4" forward has enjoyed a sterling high school career. He was named Class B second team all-conference his sophomore year, Class B first team all-conference his junior year, and Class B first team all-conference his senior year. In his senior year, he also was the team's most valuable player and scored his 1000th point.

According to Coach Gonyea, "Cody has been on our radar for the past four years. Lincoln Academy has a history of putting out not only great basketball players, but quality young men as well. He will follow in the footsteps of former Damariscotta native and CM great, Jalen Lincoln. He has been well coached the past few years beginning with Coach McKinney and recently with Coach Ball. I have watched his game improve and think he is perfect for the system we employ. He plays big, gets to the basket and will only get bigger and stronger in our program. I can't wait to get him in the weight room to increase his size. This is a great pick-up for our program."

Cody's remarks: One of the main reasons I choose CM is because of how affordable the school is per year. The location in the Lewiston/Auburn area is also relatively close to home where my grandparents, parents, and my brother and sister can come visit and watch my games. Coach Gonyea is a great coach that I have come to know over the past three years and could not wait to-- hopefully-play for him after this year. CM runs a run and gun offense that I think I could come to like very much. Another major factor in my decision to attend CM is the Business Management Program. This program will help me in learning how to run my dad's business after college or when he retires. I am really looking forward to new things I will see next year at CM and cannot wait until the journey begins."

Schenck standout to play basketball at Husson

... “Justin had a great high school career and has a high-level skill set which will translate to the college game very quickly,” said Husson coach Warren Caruso. “Justin has an opportunity to make an impact on our program next year. We like his length and skills at the wing spot.

“Justin has the ability to affect the game in multiple ways. He shoots the ball well, can attack the rim and is a solid rebounder and an exceptional passer.”

Thompson was a four-year starter at Schenck who averaged 25.1 points and 16.0 rebounds per game as a junior and 28.4 points, 14.5 rebounds, 7.2 assists, 2.3 steals, and 2.1 blocks per game this past winter while playing for his father, Wolverines’ head coach Darrick Thompson.
