Unbelievable first round games. Not what I could have ever expected. The Spaulding vs. West game was just crazy. The ENTIRE Spaulding side of the gym was packed and everyone was wearing red shirts that they were giving out. The game started slow for both teams as it was 21-19 Spaulding at the half. West took over in the second half, matching every bucket Spaulding made, most by Dominic Paridis. It seemed like every shot was contested by a West player and the 1-3-1 zone West was in created multiple turnovers. The game was 38-37 West with about 25 seconds to play and Carl Jaques went to the line for West after being fouled. It was a one and one. Hit both and you don't have to worry, but he missed the front end giving Spaulding one last opportunity. They took the ball in with 11 seconds to go after a time out and after Paradis tried to get an open look, he dished across to the top of the three point line to Luke Roberts who buried the 3 with two players contesting at the buzzer to give Spaulding the 40-38 win. West played the best I have seen them with or without JoCarl Bureau. They knew after losing by almost 30 last time to Spaulding that they would not be able to have a shootout. So defensively they picked up their tempo a ton and it worked. The West student section was actually pretty big for being an hour away, and they were loud the whole night until the very last play. What a game. I'm excited to see more close, down to the wire games in the upcoming rounds.

Spaulding had only committed 3 team fouls with about a minute to play- on the 7th foul they waited for the ball to get out of Martin's hands, as they didn't want him at the line.... turned out to be the right move.

The Roberts 3 was crazy, Paradis got the ball with about 4 ticks left, the double team was quick to get to him, and Robert's 3 was nothing but net.

After the game Paradis said the last play was designed for him, and there was no specific 2nd option, though all of the other players on the floor had outside range.

Only 3 points of the game for Roberts, BTW cheers

North squeezes one out from Londondery 57-56. Lancers miss a game winning 3 with 5 seconds left. Coveney had 4 3s in the 1st half and 16 overall. 3 questionable calls down the stretch went Norths way. One was a travel call as a Lancer was literally being tackled.

1-16 Trinity is just too strong for Exeter.
2-15 Dover was 0-10 against the top 10 seeds; no chance to upset Salem.
3-14 Londonderry did win their last 5 games, but they were against teams ranked 12, 16, 17, 18 and 19. No upset against North.
4-15 Winnacunnet limps into the playoffs, losing 8 of their last 9 games. Central rolls in this one.
5-12 Pinkerton is hot; Memorial is cold. PA wins this one.
6-11 Spaulding is better than their seeding; West is reeling, losing 6 of their last 8; I like the Red Raiders at home.
7-10 To stay on GNG's good side, I'll go with BG in the upset. Win or lose, I'll be looking for a colorful description of the game.
8-9 My top choice for an upset in the prelims is South over Alvirne. It's really just a mini upset, since their records were only one game apart. Although South went 10-8, all of their losses were by 7 points or less.

Best of luck to all teams.

This is why I don't gamble! Smile

Is that buzzer block credited to Pat Keefe or Coach Keefe?

Now why would you ask that

Well, i was 50/50 on my two upsets of the night!
Central was winning entire game, as dawson Dickson was on fire in the 1st half, as all three of Winny guards wwere in foul trouble.
But despite this, Central only had a ten point lead at half, but stretched to 15 at the end of three.
Central dominated 4th qtr, as it seemed they did everything right and Winny did everything wrong.
On side note, dickson came up limping early 4th, and Winny was without starting center, who was not "eligble" to play.

CNG, how can you blog about a game all week and then not even show up for it, when it's in your own hometown? Have you been banned from the Merrimack gym or something?

South Alvrine game was a pretty exciting game until about the 3 minute mark

Alvrine jumped out to a early lead led by Livingston great shooting,

South then went on a spurt inspired by a Preston dunk he and cut it to 6 at the end of one

they took lead at halftime

third quarter was back in forth with Beuallieu playing well

early 4th same thing

Muciolli hits three to go 58-55 then DUnn answers
Muciolli hits jumper to make it 60-58 then a key play

South looks like they had a steal and then three players form south fumble it away from each other and leads to a lay up tied at 60

Alvrine then scored 4 quick points and Tarves for South committed a couple of turnovers

then another key play Tomascki as the ball high post against Preston dribbles right spins left and then hooks back right for an old fashion 3 point play to go up 67-61,

South did not get nay close as Alvrine made all their FT

Memorial 37 Pinkerton 35

Memorial - 10 13 5 9 - 37
Pinkerton - 11 7 8 9 - 35


Memorial - Wenyin 11 Iradukunda 6 O'Brien 5 Mayola 5 Aktot 3 Kelly 2 Torres 2 Gonzalez 2
(Missed a FT from Memorial. It must have been while I was sending and receiving 5000 text messages)
Pinkerton - Light 14 Patrikis 11 Colbert 6 Welch 4

Majak Wenyin hit an extended elbow 3 pointer with 50 seconds left to tie the game at 35. With 37 seconds left a team control foul was called on Pinkerton. With 15 seconds left Majak Wenyin hit a runner to give Memorial the 37 to 35 lead. Pinkerton brought the ball up and looked confused offensively. They called a TO with 4 seconds left. Colbert fired up a 3 that grasped iron and the buzzer sounded giving Memorial the upset victory.


Heh GNG, do you know which Forum member had Majak Wenyin on his unsung player list for the playoffs? Cool

GNG dumped his Memorial stock/interest early for that sure fire team... that was going to go on an epic winning streak and then.....hmmm... here's where it gets foggy.

Enjoyed my stock tonight though - thanks GNG!

D1 Boy's Prelim Games. Any Upsets? - Page 2 Empty Prelims...BG/Merrimack

Post  tarrier on Wed Mar 07, 2012 12:12 am

BG actually had the ball in the final minute down 49-48 with a chance to take the winning shot(44 seconds left to be exact). THey worked the clock down to about 5 seconds, but McCarthy had the ball taken away by Eric Gendron. Gendron was fouled and sank 2 FT's with 4.9 seconds left to make it 51-48 Merrimack. But Jeff Lunn drained a 3 from just to the left of the top of the arc at the buzzer to send it to OT. Tyler Gendron scored a quick lay up off the opening tap of the extra session and Merrimack cruised to a 62-51 win by shutting out BG 11-0 in the OT.

Eric Gendron had 17, Tyler and Dimitri scored 13 each for Merrimack. Senior guard Dylan O'Brien came off the bench to score a big 7 for the Tomahawks who move on to face Dover after the Green Wave beat Salem.

Lunn had 19 in a losing effort. McCarthy had 14, Kesty 13.

Just an incredible night of basketball. 6 of the 8 games had a combined winning margin of 18 points. This night reminded me of the quarterfinal night last year when every game went to the wire. There was an incredible ebb and flow to the evening.

The quarterfinals are going to be equally dramatic. 3 of the 4 games look to me like near pick em games.

It starts with L and ends with UNN. Very Happy Very Happy

Where have the forum readers read that name before.

Your Welcome.

Tully- I was saying to T@F last night that the 2 worst teams I saw this season were Dover and Memorial.

Both in the elite eight.

Interesting line score in the Trinity-Exeter game:

Trinity 16-23-57
Exeter 19-7-53

Exeter out-field goaled Trinity, but Trinity had a wide margin in FTs.

Matt Barr had 35 points for Exeter.
