When the defending Western D champs get a rebound or catch the defense napping, there's no hesitation. They travel the length of the court in a matter of moments, often turning the opportunity into an easy layup. Between their experience, athleticism and aggressiveness, the Bucks' transition game is relentless and tough to chase.

TA 68, Sanford 37

Sport: Basketball (boys)  Posted: December 23rd, 2008 by Tom Nolette

The Sanford Redskins kept up with the overwhelming-favored Thornton Academy Goldan Trojans during the 1st half of last night's game, largely due to Kory Parker's hot shooting (14 1st half points including 3 treys) while Thornton was a cold 10 for 34 from the field. After the break, the Golden Trojans quickly built on its 28-22 halftime advantage with Ian Barwise leading the charge with two quick old-fashioned 3-point plays. Thornton outscored the Redskins 40-15 in the second half on its way to a 68-37 victory. Ian Barwise led the Golden Trojans with 16 points, with Tom Littlefield and James Morse contributing 12 and 10 points, respectively. Kory Parker was the only Sanford player in double-figures with a game-high 18 points. Thornton Coach Bob Davies substituted liberally throughout the contest with his reserves playing most of the second half. In addition to its cold shooting display in the 1st half, the Golden Trojans hit only 16 of 31 foul shots.

Patient Cougars fight off Greyhounds

Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Posted: December 23rd, 2008 by Tom Nolette

By Bob McPhee , Staff Writer Tuesday, December 23, 2008 DIXFIELD - When some thing isn't working, it's time to switch gears. Ricki Sinclair provided the spark for Dirigo by slowing the offense in the final quarter. Sinclair assumed command down the stretch and scored a game high 11 points as the Cougars received a solid defensive effort in a 35-25 victory over Lisbon in an MVC girls' basketball game on Monday. Dirigo jumped on top early in the fourth quarter and showed patience by rotating the ball around the arc before settling for an open shot. This tactic disrupted the tempo. Two straight baskets by Sinclair (three assists, three steals) on Morgan Hutchins feeds opened-up a 30-21 lead with six minutes left in the game. Lisbon was able to inch closer on a Stephanie Smith 3-pointer, but failed to score a field goal the rest of the way. "Lisbon had used a press against us," Sinclair said. "It had (hindered) our offense, but we knew that we needed to keep our composure. Then, we ran our press defense effectively down the stretch." Dirigo (5-1) had to slow the tempo down because it could not solve Lisbon's defensive pressure. This was enhanced when the Cougars constantly picked up their dribble and threw the ball away. A base-line jumper by Hannah Knight (five points) and two free throws by Sinclair, with 1:44 left sealed the deal. Lisbon (4-2) struggled on offense, shooting 30 percent (8 for 36) from the field. Junior Renee Moore had a team-high nine points. The Greyhounds made two of five shots in the fourth quarter. "We simply didn't shoot well," Lisbon coach Jake Gentle said. "We had plenty of high percentage shots, but nothing was falling for us. Also credit the Dirigo defense because they have three guards who apply plenty of pressure." Dirigo utilized its own trapping by Tricia Turner (three assists, three steals), Kristen Harvey (four points) and Jane Hebert (six points, nine rebounds). Lisbon hoped to use a fast tempo and create havoc with a trio of guards - (Lewiston transfer) Amber Cloutier, Kelly Bourgoin and Smith. But the Greyhounds committed 24 turnovers, including 10 in the third quarter. A fast break basket by Shelby Brannon made 21-17. "I hate to stall," Dirigo coach Reggie Weston said, who reverted to the strategy with 4 minutes to play. "I would rather attack, but we spread it out and wanted Lisbon to come out and challenge us. But, Lisbon is well coached and they wouldn't bite on it if they had come out, we could have fed the ball inside." Dirigo shot 51 percent, but committed 24 turnovers

Blue Blazes Remain #4 in American Journal's SMAA Power Rankings

Sport: Basketball (boys)  Posted: December 22nd, 2008 by Tom Nolette

4. WESTBROOK (4-0): The Blue Blazes won a road thriller on Friday night, topping previously unbeaten Deering 71-69. Junior center Dominic Borelli scored 18 points in his first game of the season, as a back injury sidelined him for the first three games. Nich Jobin poured in 28 points for the Blazes. Deering was able to keep it close by making 13 3-pointers. With Jobin and Borelli forming the SMAA’s top inside duo, the Blazes will go far if their guards can handle the pressure against other top teams.
