Alosa to be Inducted into New England Basketball Hall of Fame

From unhwildcats.com:
Former University of New Hampshire men's basketball player Matt Alosa will be inducted into the New England Basketball Hall of Fame in the high school category, at 7 p.m. on Oct. 9 at Mohegan Sun, the Hall of Fame recently announced.

Alosa led Pembroke Academy to a 21-1 record and the Class I boys' basketball championship his senior year in 1991. Alosa, who returned to Pembroke three years ago to become the head coach, was the state's third 2,000-point scorer, and set the Spartans' all-time scoring record with 2,575 points.

After transferring from Providence, Alosa spent two years in Durham and helped lead the Wildcats to their best season in school history during the 1994-95 season with a 19-9 record, including 11-5 in the conference. Despite only having two seasons to rack up numbers, Alosa is UNH's eighth all-time leading scorer with 1,247 points. Alosa, who was All-NAC Second Team both years at UNH, also holds records for all-time scoring average (23.1 ppg), single-season scoring average (24.0 ppg), 3-pointers made in a season (87), free throws made in a season (150), points in a half (28) and free throw percentage in a game (1.000, 12-12).

  3. congradulations to Matt !!!! Seems we often get negative comments from those who were never anyting and just want to be, usually refered to as haters, Alot of that going in NH, maybe a little less hateing and a little more attention to detail and you would have been something. Matt has busted his ass to be a great player, and continues to do so as a coach, say what you will about Matt but his players know the game, maybe not the most talented but any college coach will tell his kids know how to play, so be it if he recruits, maybe the rest of the coaches out there will step up their game, thank you Matt for raiseing the bar another notch, maybe we can start getting some consistant collegiate players coming out of NH. So when it all shakes down lets stop hatieng, and lets all work on the over-all quality of NH Basketball. If you want you can come along for the ride, or just keep Hatieng !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Matt and Barnes didnt hit it off. So he left the program. Unless you are trying to start rumors or something get facts.

  8. Why what did matt do to piss off Barnes?

  9. NH people kill me. Matt deserves nothing but congratulations but people still have to send negative statements towards him. We should start supporting the people and teams that are trying to do positive things for NH basketball and stop trying to demean them.

  10. In case you havent figured it out, there are way to many haters in NH. They are so many people who say bad things about player or make comments that are way off basis because they never knew what it took to get to a level like Alosa, Bonner, Roche, Collins, Friel, or Hassan. They think that these players, and many others out there are wasting their time and arent truly that good. Or if they dont believe that, they think they are aholes. Well, in case you havent figured it out, you need a certain arrogance to be good. All of those before mentioned players always get bashed because they transfered schools, or they didnt play as well in college as they did in HS. Its unbelievable that people act like that. Matt, your one of the best players ever out of the state, and you are a terrific young coach. Keep up the good work!

  11. You dont have to be an ass to be good. Matt Bonner,Tyler Roche and Bill Collins are some of the most gunuine poeple you could ever approach. They are a class act. So lets not make excuses for the other guys.

  13. I have been around the NH hoops scene for decades and if you are saying that Matt Alosa is an asshole than you clearly do not know him. I do not know him personally but have been in the background watching him as a player and a few times as coach, and he is nothing but genuine and seemingly a nice guy.

  14. Totally agree - Matt is a lot more decent and genuine that other coaches in the area - Congrats Matt.

  15. Enough of the verbal attacks and profanity people. If you want have a potty mouth,go to the other blog.

  16. I think Matt is a nice guy and a good coach and one hell of a player. That does not mean he is not illegally recruiting players into his program. It would be interesting to see if the NHIAA investigates because you cannot coach more than 25% of your team before they come to high school and he coached these kids a few years back when they were with the raiders and now their suddenly transfering into the school.

  17. Someone should be making calls and sending letters to the nhiaa other wise other schools will follow suit.

  18. Actually you are incorrect in the percentage and the before part. He can coach all of his players until they are part of the program. So if his father had them in his program and then they decide to come to Pembroke he then would be under the percentage rule. Not before but while they are in the program.

  19. Always a fishy smell coming out of the Alosa Basketball Kingdom.

  20. NH haters will never stop demeaning thier own people. The best guard in the states history gets into the New England Basketball Hall of Fame and you post negative comments about nothing. Look in the mirror whoever you are and see if you feel good?

  21. The rule states that if you are to coach kids before 6th grade you can coach as many as you want. As far as 7th and 8th graders you cant coach more than 25% of kids that will be in your program. This means any type of coach. Head, assistant, volunteer or just helping out at practice. The question would be is he at the practices, if so then they would be in violation. If they are under 6th grade then they would not be in violation.

  22. Where is the cheating? Please tell me who has ever played for Alosa in the three years he has been at the Pembroke helm as a coach where he has cheated? Name one single instance.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Unfortunately for Matt he takes a lot of crap from people who didnt or dont like his father. My only thing is if they are recruiting at the high school level. I think Alosa should utilize his name in AAU, camps and clinics, because he worked hard to make a great house hold name for himself. In highschool there are rules however. Anyone who coaches at a private slash public school are always going to be associated with this. When you hear names like Jackson (couple years ago) Vazquez (raider from hookset) Reno (raider from concord). Questions will arise. Its a fact of life. I hope that it is not proven. It would not be good for the game.

  24. If a family decides to move to another area for sports, education or a job, its a choice they can make. People want thier childern to be successful in whatever endeavor they choose. When a outstanding coach is in the area people will want to play for him or her, its only natural. In my opinion, it would be really hard to prove a coach actively recruited a player to change thier residency to another district. I'm sure the people mentioned above, in fact, did have residency in that district. As far as I know, people are allowed to own or rent more than one home or relocate if they choose. I'm sure other NH sports players have changed schools this year, that don't get as much attention as Pembroke does i.e. Connor Green from Bedford to BG and Cormac Fitzpatrick from Trinity to Memorial. I mention these names because they are impact tranfers of some notoriety.

  25. kids going from a public to parochial or vice versa is completetly different.

    When a kid goes to the school not where he "really" lives it's adding a new dimension to public school sports.

    ReplyDelete
  26. What that means is parochial schools exist so public school kids have options. by design they "take" kids from public schools. They have some advantates in that regard, but they also have disadvantages (no feeder system, tighter rules, etc)

    Pembroke "taking" kids from other public schools is a can of worms the NHIAA doesn't want opened (imagine if everyone started recruting)

  27. I'm sick of hearing the ignorant comments issued by non-athletic couch potatoes that have an axe to grind with certain NH basketball coaches. Forget about the phony rumors of basketball recruiting and let the kids play and let the coaches exhibit and teach these kids additional skills. It amazes me how some people unconciously show their stupidity with their comments. Obviously they never set foot on a basketball court in their life and get off trying to criticize the people that they secretly idolize. Do me a favor, say something positive and meaningful or shut-up!!!!!!
