Dimitri Floras will get his first action since his cast was removed Tuesday night.

Get your popcorn ready. This will be a good one.

When do the doors open :-) There's no school this week... JV game starts at 5P and V at 630P, right? When do they lock latecomers out? (Over/Under)


Interesting choice of game for Floras' return - playoffs and posturing start "now" for both teams... When BG loses the next 2, GNG can say conspiracy theory or can he? Twisted Evil

I don't think there will be a problem getting in.

Last time BG played in Merrimack very few BG students showed up. Being vacation week I anticipate even fewer BG students.

"posturing start "now" for both teams"
GNG


That's funny. I thought BG, Merrimack and the other 17 teams started posturing right around the 2nd and 3rd week of December when the regular season started. Wink

One would think the Merrimack faithful will hold their breath every time Floras falls to the court or receives contact on a physical play in an always emotional BG - Merrimack game.

I was shocked by the few BG fans last week at the BG/ Winny girls game. It was the best two teams in state, and BG couldn't even fill small section, with mostly family and reporters!
Saw Jeremy sitting third row, with plenty of space around him!

re nhhoopsguy: Not a shocker really... even the boys at home have a tough time drawing the students, never mind about girls on the road an hour away. Winter at BG usually is "hockey time", but with that team having a down year even they only draw a few fans. The Winny girls have had good teams for years, so it's no surprise that they can draw students to the games. Do the boys there draw that many to a game? Success has a way of bringing more than friends'n'family out.

re T&F: my posturing comment was a poke at the other thread about losing on purpose Smile Although I think you have to agree back in the 2nd/3rd week of December teams are usually just thinking about winning the game they are playing or preparing for their next opponent. Come this time of year it turns to "who" you'd face in the playoffs based "if" you win and "if" you lose. Or in GNG's case, who you don't want to face.

For Floras' sake - hopefully he can keep his emotions in check. Last year's game I believe put Merri in the tailspin resulting in the quick ouster from the playoffs. For BG finishing with Merri and Salem it's a good test to prepare for the tourney - hopefully they can keep their emotions in check too and both teams just play basketball.

JAF,
No the boys will draw at least 60 or more students to games, usually higher if it will be a good game.
People always want to see a winner!

Unless Nhiaa has the score wrong HB got a huge win over Pelham 63-41. Hard to get a read on Pelham, but this loss could potentially mean they are traveling to Lebanon rather than hosting them. (Leb needs to win out for that to happen I think) This could also potentially match-up HB and Souhegan in the playoffs for a 4th time, although I haven't look at the tie-breakers so who knows.

Floras scored 18 in the Merry win over BG.

Trinity beat Memorial 58 to 50 in OT. The game was very physical. Sistare tweaked his ankle and Kantu broke his ankle when Lauderdale fell on it.

I had the same thought when I saw the score: "I wonder if it was posted wrong?" Will have to double check the morning paper.

There are two quirks in the D-2 schedule that will affect the final standings. 1) not sure why, but Pelham only plays a 17-game schedule, whereas every other team in the division plays 18 games; 2) Hanover plays 8 home games and 10 away games; everyone else in the division plays 9H and 9A (except Pelham, who plays 9H and 8A). The top four teams are all currently 15-2, with one home loss and one road loss. Hanover's final game is away, and the other three teams are at home. If Hanover wins, they will be the number one seed by virtue of one more road win (i.e. 9 wins out of 10, versus 8 out of 9 for the other teams).

Even with a win, Merrimack can get no higher than 5th, since Spaulding won tonight. If they beat Central friday, Merrimack-Central will finish either 5-6 or 6-7.

Feb. 28th Games & BG vs. Merrimack Empty BG/Merr

Post  tarrier on Wed Feb 29, 2012 1:02 am

PACKED crowd at Merrimack tonight for "Senior Night". The giant Merrimack student section behind the hoop was wearing all blue. Dimitri Floras was back and wearing a serious wrap on his right arm. He started off slowy and looked to be favoring it a little and did alot of ball handling and even some shooting with his left hand. He seemed to get better as the game went along. He did hit a couple of 3's, but generally his outside shots were off the mark. He made up for it with fearless drives thru the paint and right to the hole. He ended up hurting his ankle late in the game and I saw him walking with a limp and a big bag of ice on his foot after the game. Goodridge said he wasn't sure how bad the injury was. Tyler Gendron was a factor on both ends with alot of points(I wasn't keeping score so I'm not sure how many). Gendron also had a bunch of blocked shots and rebounds. Offensively, he hit some 3's and upfaked his way to the hole where he finished some nice finger rolls. BG started off hot, but Merrimack came storming back in the latter stages of the 1st quarter and took control in the 2nd Q. They built a double digit lead from there before BG made a 2nd half run behind bigman Jeff Lunn who was unstoppable in the 2nd half. Logan Kesty also had a good game for the Cards. Joe McCarthy hit a few shots, but I didn't think he played his best game. Great atmosphere both in the stands and on the court. Brad Holler banked in a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong buzzer-beating 3 from just inside halfcourt on the right sideline to end the 3rd.

Heh Pete:

Did BG play extra physical on Floras to make him prove he could hang coming off the injury or was it not a factor?
