Big Red Summer League in High Gear (Plus News and Notes)

Sport: Basketball (boys)  Posted: July 7th, 2008 by Tom Nolette

words fromthe WIZ
07/07/08

Well folk’s summer is here and it’s going fast. The WIZ has been very busy getting caught up on projects around the house, but this past Sunday night The WIZ stopped by to catch some summer hoops at the South Portland Big Red Summer League. South Portland Coach Phil Conley is doing a great job running the show. There are 6 teams in the league this summer. Games are played on Sunday, Monday and Wednesday nights with three games each night starting at 6:00pm. Games will continue through July.

The 6 teams are:

South Portland
Portland
Gorham
Scarborough
Falmouth
Yarmouth

Scores for Sunday night were:

Falmouth 77 Scarborough 49
Portland 65 Yarmouth 25
Gorham 35 So. Portland 31

It was interesting watching the teams go at it. Many teams were missing players due to Legion baseball and other commitments so that always makes things interesting and it gives the younger players a chance to improve their game. Even though this is only summer league games it gives you a feel on how well some of these teams will be this coming year. It is also very interesting seeing some of these players develop and to see their bodies maturing just in the past 6 months.

News and Notes:

-Coach Conley reports that things are going very well with the South Portland Red Riots. The Riots who had a great season last year under Coach Conley’s first year as head coach in which the Riots went 14-4 in regular season play. The Riots were seeded #3 for the Tourney and made it to the semi-finals where they lost to Thornton 58-47. The Riots ended the season with a 15-5 record. Coach Conley also reports that the numbers for the Big Red Summer Camp were way up this year over past years with over 70 elementary kids attending and close to 40 at the high school level. Looks like the Riots are back on track with Coach Conley at the helm.

-New Gorham Coach Josh Longstaff has a new assistant. Former Westbrook star Brian Wohl will be helping Coach Longstaff guide the Rams. From what I saw Sunday night this Gorham team is already responding to the new coaches. It should be an interesting and exciting year for the Gorham Rams.

-Portland also has a new assistant coach. Former Portland standout Rocco Toppi comes back to help out his former high school Coach Joe Russo. I’m sure “The Rock” will do a fantastic job for Coach Russo.

-South Portland Coach Phil Conley also will have a new assistant coach this year. The former Yarmouth head coach and Deering assistant coach Jon Maloney will team up with Coach Conley and the Red Riots. This is a huge plus for the Riots. Coach Maloney brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to South Portland

-South Portland Star Keegan Hyland has been out the past two weeks with an ankle sprain he suffered during the Deering Summer Kickoff Tourney. Keegan is healing well and he expects to be back playing in a week or so.

-Also of note: Word is out that the young freshmen Will Defanti of Kennebunk is moving his residence to Portland and will be playing for Coach Russo’s Portland Bulldogs. Will is a 5’10 talented guard that will probably get a lot of playing time for the Bulldogs in his first year. He may even have a shot a cracking the starting line-up but he’ll have to earn it.

Til’ Next time: Enjoy the summer! It will be gone before you know it!

North Cambridge coach Dan Salazar, with players Paul Rose, Allen St. Surin and CJ Francis, were in for the first hour; followed by Everett coach John DiBiaso, who was forced to go solo because of conflicts with players’ schedules. Everett has won 25 straight games and two Division 1 Super Bowl straight titles.

It was the second straight double-header of champions for Mike Shalin and Danny Ventura, who will continue honoring state high school champs throughout the summer.

That's four in the last two shows and the hits just keep on coming,” Shalin said. “We're going to honor as many kids and coaches as we can before school starts again in September. The coaches enjoy coming in and the kids really get a charge out of it.

Some of these kids show real talent on the radio.”

Also joining the latest On The Air edition via the hotline was Paul Halloran, the director of the upcoming Agganis Games in Lynn. The annual event dishes out scholarships to worthy high school athletes and Halloran will be back On The Air to continue talking about the week-long event.

Rose, who had 32 points, 10 assists and played great defense in his team's title game, will be playing in the Agganis Games.
