Run and gun: Hoop mayhem

Steve McKibben lives in Cornwall, but teaches in Connecticut at Hotchkiss School. He’s also the junior varsity basketball coach there.

Last year, when he was the assistant coach, the team won only one game and lost 11. “It was a miserable season,” he says. “Everyone was down, no one had any fun.”

Handed the reins this year, he decided to do things differently.

MIDDLEBURY — When the Williams College men’s basketball team visited Middlebury on Jan. 28 and came within a point of upsetting the Panthers, the Ephs shot 53 percent and scored 79 points.

But in Saturday’s NESCAC quarterfinal against those same Ephs, the No. 7 seed, the No. 2 Panthers were ready: They held Williams to 34.3 percent shooting — four of 29 from three-point range — to win, 73-61.

VUHS coasts past Mt. Abe

BRISTOL — Usually when the Vergennes and Mount Abraham union high school boys’ basketball teams meet, the records can be thrown out — the games are competitive regardless of how well the Commodores and Eagles are faring.

But Tuesday’s game at Mount Abe was the exception that proves the rule.

The 11-1 Commodores picked that night to put forth what might have been their most complete effort of the season against their 1-10 rivals and coasted to a 58-32 victory.

OV boys outlast Eagles in morale-boosting win

BRISTOL — Before Tuesday’s boys’ basketball game at Mount Abraham Union High School, both Eagle coach Bill Leggett and Otter Valley coach Nathan Bellomo said their teams were continuing to hang together and work hard despite disappointing starts.

Both the Eagles and Otters also really wanted to add a W to their résumés: OV was 2-6, including a 44-41 home win over Mount Abe. The 0-6 Eagles were coming off a last-second loss at BFA-Fairfax that their coaches said was their best effort.

MIDDLEBURY — Friday’s boys’ basketball game at Middlebury Union High School had everything one might hope for: atmosphere, a comeback, an outcome not decided until a final shot hit the rim, coaches engaged in a chess match, an outstanding individual performance, teamwork, clutch hoops and free throws, and even solid officiating.

And for the 4-2 Tigers it offered even more: Their biggest win of the young season, 53-50, over a Fair Haven team that came in at 5-1.

MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ basketball team pulled away from visiting Otter Valley on Dec. 23 in the third quarter to win, 49-32, and even its record at 2-2.

The Otters, who two days earlier had defeated Mount Abraham for their first win of the winter, dropped to 1-3 despite mixing up their defensive looks and holding the Tigers to 16 points in the first half, which ended with MUHS up, 16-11.

Tiger girls hang on for 41-37 win

MIDDLEBURY — Basketball teams don’t win too many games in which they fail to score a basket in two of four quarters.

But they can if, like the Middlebury Union High School girls’ basketball team did on Friday night against visiting Burr & Burton, they also play tough defense and hit enough free throws.

Despite sinking only free throws in the second and fourth quarters and at one point failing to score a basket for more than 13 minutes, MUHS outlasted the Bulldogs, 41-37.

Panther men's hoop remain on top

MIDDLEBURY — Once it became clear before Tuesday night’s game in Pepin Gymnasium that injured Johnson & Wales senior guard Lamonte Thomas, the leading scorer in NCAA Division III men’s basketball, would not play against Middlebury College, the focus even more narrowed on the news the Panthers made earlier in the day.

That was when the most recent D-III poll came out, and Coach Jeff Brown’s group sat on top, ranked No. 1 for the first time in program history.
