I don't believe I've ever attended a game where a team led for 31 minutes and 59.5 seconds and lost...... Until tonight. This happened to Memorial. They had a 66 to 60 lead with about 40 seconds left. To lose the Crusaders would have to do everything wrong and to win Central would have to do everything right and both things happened.

Final Central 67 Memorial 66

Kabonga and Joe Martin both had great games. That's probably 1/3 of your 1st team All State team (remember the official all state teams have 6 members).

Craig Preston was cool under fire draining one 3 after another.

With 2.2 seconds left in the game and Memorial winning 66 to 65 they inexplicably fouled Central's Nate Guillermo 50 feet from the hoop. Guillermo missed the front end of the one and one. There was a battle for the rebound in the middle of the paint. The ball changed hands and went to Guillermo who put home an 10 footer as the buzzer sounded. It was the craziest ending to a boys' QCIBT game I've ever seen.

Great win by Central! Scrappy, hard nose team.  Overcame not playing well to gut out the win

Memorial played great!  I really think they have all the ingredients (with or without, but hopefully with TM) to be at UNH

But,  my take on the last foul that the respected T&F called inexplicable, was simple.  IT WASN'T a foul. You get a quick touch with your hands and then the second touch is a foul (explained to me by an official at the game), the ref called it right away.    I thought it was a miscommunication or just dumb at the time.  But check it out on the highlights, it was just that official doing what he does.    Help teams and home teams. There were other  funny calls along the way. who schedules the officials?  Check out the imaginary and 1 called against Memorial on the video. Its always the same guys

Even if you argue it may have been a foul, what terrible game management to attempt to decide the game in one teams favor 70 feet from the basket with 5 seconds to go.

Thankfully Central bailed themselves out by that great last play.

Maybe I'm just a frustrated Memorial guy but.....watch it on NH sportspage video

Clancy,

First off it wasn't a hand check foul at the end. It was a push foul. Watch the mechanic of the calling referee. That is a HUGE difference. If the Central player had travelled or lost control of the ball after being pushed I suppose that would've gone over real well for the other side.

I can understand your sour grapes. It is emotional out there. You've stated before you don't have some one who plays for Memorial. This being said it seems like you have a definite "vested" interest in the Memorial boys' basketball team Wink

Memorial had PLENTY of chances to put this game on ice in the last couple of minutes. They had one of their best if not their best FT shooter at the line in the waning seconds of this game who missed a HUGE front end of a 1 & 1. Memorial also missed another front end of a 1 and 1 seconds before. One could call that squandered opportunities.

With regards to the last foul: Don't take a chance and put it in the referee's whistle. I was sitting amongst a throng of Memorial fans and NOT ONE complained about the 2.2 second foul call.

As far as the 3 officials working this game: all highly respected officials by coaches, administrators and players. 2 of the 3 have done numerous D1 and D2 boys' semi finals and championship games at Lundholm in the last decade. I think the whistles were in good hands and the person assigning the officials is/has done a fantastic job of assigning officials for the QCIBT over the years. Don't like my opinion then check with the QCIBT tournament director (s).

After your wonderful Holiday thoughts I do not want to argue.

We can agree to disargee

1) in order to be a push there has to be displacement (none)

2) in three man the official who made the call was calling out of his area, the official who was responsible for the call was right there, and didn't call anything.

3) no comment on they are respected officials

You may have the last word, I am a shameless Memorial supporter and will not comment again. (on this)

With regards to 1)...... We must have a different number of pixels on our screens.

With regards to 2) ...... It's not unusual for calls to be made as you say "out of area." Some would refer to it as angles, vision and getting call right.

Again, I emphasize Memorial had numerous chances to put this game on ice and didn't. For a fan to overlook this and zero in on one call in a 32 minute game is severely shortsighted.

Quite simply for Memorial: Don't leave MacDonald open for a 3, hit your FTs, don't get close for comfort to a ball handler 50 feet from the hoop and grab the missed rebound from the missed 1 and 1.

6 point lead with 40 seconds left and lose? Well served to look in a Crusader mirror.

Didn't see PA v Memorial. Sounded like a great game.  Heard it was unfortunate that Kabongo fouled out in  third (why is he playing with 4 fouls in the third?)

I really like what Manchester West is doing, yes they got blown out by Central (but who doesn't).  Kids are playing really hard, playing unselfishly.  Think they will be very strong in D2, hope they play Brady, Lebanon (and Portsmouth again.)  I would go to see that.

My Memorial, I think they too are building something special.  Really have looked good for 90 percent of QCBIT  Could be the best team by the end of the year (clearly not yet)
