Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: February 18th, 2012 by Tom Nolette

By Ernie Clark..AUGUSTA — Fullcourt defensive pressure has been a hallmark of the Cony of Augusta girls basketball team for a generation, and it’s a major reason the top-ranked Rams are still undefeated after Friday night’s 57-47 victory over Bangor in their Eastern Maine Class A quarterfinal at the Augusta Civic Center. Just how effective was that defense in compensating for Bangor’s significant height advantage?  for full story

Out of the Blue (Mt. Blue)

Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: February 17th, 2012 by Tom Nolette

By Kevin Mills..AUGUSTA — Four wins didn't seem like much. It was still an improvement. After going winless during the 2009-2010 season, the Mt. Blue girls basketball could sense the small progress. Then came last summer. The Cougars' baby steps evolved into larger ones. "Last year, teams would be blowing us out," said sophomore forward Miranda Nicely. "Then over the summer,  we were sticking with them and started beating them. So coming into this year, we knew we could really do this and play with anybody."  for full story

Class A East tourney preview: Hampden leads balanced field

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: February 17th, 2012 by Tom Nolette

By Ernie Clark..The talk of balance within this year’s Eastern Maine Class A boys basketball tournament field takes Roger Reed back a generation, 20 years ago, to be exact. The Rams hadn’t won a regional championship in 30 years entering the 1992 tournament, but persevered through close call after close call to end that title drought.Third-seeded that year, Bangor edged Caribou 69-67 in overtime in the quarterfinals, then upended No. 2 Old Town 46-44 in the semifinals before ousting top-ranked Waterville 53-43 in the championship game. What followed a week later was even more memorable, the epic 81-79 five-overtime loss to South Portland in the state championship game — something that just served to show that the parity in Class A was statewide that year.

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: February 17th, 2012 by Tom Nolette

By Ernie Clark...TRENTON, Maine — A tinge of disappointment crossed Brandon Hagan’s face when reminded that there will be no trip to the tournament for his Acadia Christian boys basketball team this year, and that the following evening’s game against East Grand would be his last. Not that the Seahawks weren’t already successful. Acadia Christian, which won just once in its varsity history before this winter, returned from that final trek to Danforth last week having completed its season with a 10-8 record.   for full story

By Michael Hoffer..YARMOUTH—If Yarmouth senior standout Morgan Cahill wasn't enough for the Falmouth girls' basketball team to contend with Wednesday night in a Western Class B preliminary round tournament game, the emergence of her younger sister Sean made for an impossible task.
