Hot, Cold and Getting Old, Plus WIZ Top 10 Teams- Week # 7

Where every day is a victory celebration"

Well folks the weather outside has not been very hot as a matter of fact it has been pretty darn cold, but in Maine H.S. basketball things on the hardwood are really starting to heat up. I don’t know I must be getting old. Every year I seem to hate the cold more and more. If it wasn’t for basketball I don’t know what I would do in these Maine winter months. I don’t ski, I don’t ride them snow machines and I don’t really care to shovel.

Speaking of hot, things are really getting hot up in Augusta. The MPA with its proposed cuts in high school athletics is really heating up. I have talked with many coaches and some AD’s and I haven’t found one yet that is in favor of these cuts. Republican Representative Josh Tardy (Newport) House Minority Leader is submiting  some type of bill that will take some power away from the MPA that would not allow the MPA to cut sports schedules and non-countable games. Josh is a good friend and a very good man. If anyone can pull this off he can. Go Get’em Josh!

Teams that are hot:

Cheverus Stags- Still undefeated big win over Deering.
Camden- Undefeated and cruising.
Westbrook- Three more wins 11-1.
South Portland- Three more W’s big win over Thornton
Portland-Three straight wins including Deering
Dirigo- Still undefeated.
Edward Little- Five straight wins including Brewer.
Bangor- Two more wins getting fired up.
Cape Elizabeth- Back on track big win over Greely.
Falmouth- Only one loss so far.
Wiscasset- Only one loss and very dangerous.
Stearns- Still undefeated 12-0.
Ft. Fairfield- also still undefeated 12-0.
Presque Isle- 10 straight wins 11-1.

Teams not so hot:

Deering- Losing the close ones.
Hampden- What has happened to the Broncos?
Lewiston- Really struggling.
Biddeford- Many thought they would be better.
Cent. Aroostook- Looking to get on track.
Windham- Not bad just can’t get a big win.
Freeport- Really struggling may get better.
Valley- I’m shocked thought they would be better.

In big games last week Cheverus beat Deering 63-35. South Portland beat Thornton 72-67. Edward Little beat Brewer 80-51. Portland beat Deering 60-57. Cape beat Greely 72-64. Greely beat Traip 51-45.

Big Games coming.

Things over the next three weeks will be heating up Big time!

Class A West- The top teams in the SMAA are all playing each other. Cheverus, Portland, Westbrook, South Portland and Thronton all looking for that # 1 Seed.

In Class A East- Teams are so even and everyone will be fighting for that # 1 spot. Did EL make a statement last week? EL, Brewer, Mt. Blue, Morse seem to be fighting for top honors and beware Bangor is starting to click.

It’s a dogfight in B West as about four teams will battle for that top spot. Cape, Falmouth, Greely and Lake Region will be battling for the top spot and don’t count out Mountain Valley when the tourney gets here.

In B East- It’s all Camden Hills the question is who will get the # 2 spot. Will it be Presque Isle, Rockland, Maranacook, Medomak Valley, Gardiner, or Hermon? And you can’t count out Gardiner, Caribou, Erskine or Mattanawcook.

In C West- It’s all Dirigo right now, but watch out for Wiscasset and Hyde could surprise.
In C East- It will be crazy between Calais, Stearns, Orono, Washington Acad., Madawaska, Narraguagus, Schenk, and even Houlton has a shot.

In D West- It looks like Richmond, Elan, Forest Hills, and Greenville will battle it out for the top spot.

In D East- Fort Fairfield is on fire! Tigers are 12-0, But there are plenty of teams that will challenge. Woodland, So. Aroostook, Central Aroostook, Easton, Katahdin, Jonesport-Beals and Ashland are all capable of winning.

Undefeated Teams:

This weeks undefeated teams drop from 6 to 5
as Traip suffered their first loss of the season to Greely.

Ft. Fairfield----12-0

As we head into this weeks WIZ Top 10 Teams again there is plenty of changes. Cheverus and Camden still hold the top two spots. Thornton with the loss to South Portland drops from # 3 to # 8. Westbrook three wins moves to # 3. South Portland three wins including the big win over Thornton jumps to # 4. Portland three more wins including the win over Deering moves up to # 5. Edward Little with a big win over Brewer moves up to # 7. Might even be better than that we’ll wait and see. Brewer with the loss to EL drops to # 9 for now. And Cape with the big win over Greely moves back in the top 10 at # 10 and Greely with the loss drops out for now. It will be very interesting over the next three weeks expect lots of changes.

Gritty Traip basketball team exceeding expectations

Sport: Basketball (boys)  Posted: January 20th, 2009 by Tom Nolette

KITTERY, Maine — Most basketball coaches complain about the brevity of preseason, but not Traip Academy's Jeremy Paul.

His seemed to last a year.

With only two regulars — senior guard Brennen Connor and senior forward Eric Modica — back from a 17-2 team, Paul knew it might be a waiting game before he saw the kind of winning basketball fans in these parts have grown accustomed to.

Then there was the second preseason game, and another kind of waiting game. Traveling caravan-style to a scrimmage in Biddeford, the car carrying Connor, Modica and two other projected starters arrived late. Paul held all four out of the game and the Rangers got clocked
