‘Tis the season folks! Christmas is this coming Thursday and with that comes the Holiday Fun Games. There will be many small Xmas tourneys around the state, but the biggest tournament of all will be at the Portland Expo starting on Friday 12/26. This years Tournament The Yankee Ford Holiday Classic is presented to you by MBR.ORG. MBR’s top man Tom Nolette has put a lot of work into this baby. 17 teams are featured in this year’s tournament. There will also be three exhibition games as Cheverus will take on a team from Massachusetts and Portland will also get to play this team. Those two games will happen on opening day Friday 12/26. Then on the final day Tuesday 12/30 Thomas Knight and his Dirigo Cougars will make the trip down to the Expo to take on the Blazes of Westbrook. These Holiday Fun Games are always a great time and they provide some great basketball games over the holiday break, but these games are just for fun, they do not count. The MPA does not count these games and The WIZ for many reasons does not count these games either. There are no heal points handed out for the games they are strictly exhibition games. It is a very good time for the good coaches out there to work on some things their team needs to improve on and it is an excellent time to give the bench some playing time.

The WIZ will be on hand for all of these games working the clock in some of the games and doing some broadcasting with the MBR crew in some of the other games. Anytime MBR is involved in running an event you know you are getting a top quality product. This year’s event is expected to draw some big crowds especially for the semi-finals on Monday night and the finals on Tuesday night, plus many will come to see “Big Tom” and his Dirigo Cougars take on the Westbrook Blue Blazes in the exhibition game right before the Championship game.

Bucks outrace Hawks

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

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.
