BST Southern Division - Week 5 Recap


Bishop Guertin and Groton-Dunstable picked up wins on Wednesday night in summer league action. Here's my recap of both games.

Game 1: Alvirne vs. Groton-Dunstable
Groton wins it 54-52. Overall, it wasn't the most well played game and it was a little sloppy. But Groton is a young team, and Alvirne was missing a couple of key guys. Considering that it wasn't bad for a summer league game.

Initially it looked like Groton was going to run away with it, as they took a 12-2 lead early. But then Alvirne slowly got back in it, and then really started to play well towards the end of the first half. They were being led by Caleb Donnelly, Pat Nager and Jim Tomaswick. Nager hit back-to-back three's, and Tomaswick was more assertive offensively without fellow 6'5" forward Sean Moyen in the lineup. Also, Britton Doyle did some nice things for the Broncos. He had 2 blocked shots on one possession late in the half. He isn't much of an offensive threat, but he did a lot of little things to help out and really hustled on both ends,

The teams went back and forth in the second half, and it went down to the wire. Groton was in a zone the whole game, and they pressed 3/4 court for the majority of the contest. Alvirne had some turnovers, but for the most part they did ok against both looks Groton was giving them. Donnelly had a solid all around game.

Alvirne had one last chance to tie the game or to win it, down 54-52 with about 20 seconds left. Donnelly got a good look at the rim too, from about 12 feet away. He put up a leaner but it rimmed out.

Tomaswick continues to make strides with his game. Tony Beaulieu had a decent game, but had some bad turnovers in the first half. The Broncos had most of their key players there, but they were missing Moyen and Jonathan Baldwin (both are projected starters).

Groton is a decent team. They're definitely young. I saw them play last summer in the BST League, and again in the Rivier Fall League. I didn't see many familiar faces tonight though, probably just 1 or 2 kids. They're a feisty team though, they play hard and they play unselfishly. And they're giving these NH teams some decent competition over the summer.


Game 2: Bishop Guertin vs. Nashua North
BG ended the game on a 23-4 run and wins it 60-41. Ryan Gauthier had a solid game for North, but BG had too many weapons for the Titans to handle. They turned the ball over, and Guertin turned them into easy baskets on the other end.

There was a good amount of talent on both squads, but both teams were missing key players. The Cardinals were without Connor Green, Sean McClung and Brad Holler, while North was missing Javon Williams. When these two teams meet this winter and they're at full strength it will be a different ballgame. Still, this was a good tune-up for both clubs.

North was really playing some good ball late in the first half and in the beginning of the second. Gauthier was on his game, hitting shots. He also sprained his ankle and had to be helped off the floor early on. But Gauthier's a tough kid. He came back in the game just 3 minutes later and started to heat up. He hit a three at the halftime buzzer, and then open the second half with another one.

North actually led this game 38-37 with about 12 minutes left, before BG went on their run.

Anton Marinchik also played well for the Titans, displaying a solid all around game and really playing hard. He could end up being North's 3rd best player this season after Gauthier and Williams. Once again the North bigs (Mike O'Connor and Jacob Mellin) were solid inside. I said it before, but I'll say it again. North will have a solid starting 5 this year with Williams, Gauthier, Marinchik, Mellin and O'Connor. And off the bench you have the 5'10" Liam Burke and the 6'0" Anthony Farmer. They'll be a solid team, and a definite contender for a top 8 seed in Division I.

Of course BG on the other hand isn't just a threat to be a top 8 seed, they're a serious threat to win it all. Even without Green, McClung and Holler, they still had plenty of talent to go around. Tonight they were led by Nick Pyzocha, Joe McCarthy, Logan Kesty, Kyle Remillard and Steve Cuipa. I was most impressed with the 6'1" Pyzocha, who was very active on both ends, and forced a number of turnovers on defense. McCarthy has good potential, and is a good offensive player and rebounder. If he can improve defensively then he'll really help this team win games.

  1. Mike Kelly didn't look to bad last night either,considering he spent the day at UNH doing drills for the football coach.Pyzocha, Remillard,and Cuipa were doing extensive football weightlifting and sprints at BG at 430,{game was at 6}.Imagine how many they will score when they are rested,and have the other 3, who are pure scorers.

  2. jeremy,not for nothing,but i thought kelly looked pretty good last night,considering he spent all day at unh working out for the football coach.Also pyzocha,remillard, and cuipa were at bg at 4:30 doing football related weight lifting,and wind sprints.Besides the 3 you mentioned,cooper paul was missing{another scoring option}.I disagree with you that this will be a diffent game this winter,I believe it will be more of what you saw tonight,much more.

  3. Nashua missing 1 player,BG 4 of their top 10,and you think the game will be different.I would agree with you if Nashua was missing 4,and BG 1.

  4. GLad to hear you got a look at Guertin Jeremy.Before I start I know that they haven't won it in 28 years,but this could be one of the highest scoring teams in NH basketball history.I know Trinity had the fab 5,and I remember the Merrimack teams of 2003-5.Bear with me,in Green and McClung they have 2 guys who can combine for 30 points ,the other 8 have to average 6 points each for 48 points,that's 78 points and we haven't even gone to the 3rd 5 yet.You might think I am high thinking 8 kid's can avg 6,but it can happen with this group,cuipa gets 10 kelly gets 2,that's 6 each, and the next game it might be visa versa but it still comes down to 6 each.It would not surprise me to see them hang 100 this year,and the funny thing is they are a defensive team. I don't want to come off as pompous or arrogant,it's just that they are so much fun to watch.They have been going on 14-2 runs in a little over a minute all summer long.After rereading this I do come off as a jerk,I apologize,but if you have a chance to watch them you will see what I am talking about.DEEP,VERY DEEP.Oh yeah once again I know they haven't won it in 28 years,but it's good to have senior leaders who have the desire to end that.Only time will tell.Let the hating begin.

  10. Here we go again with the BG is the best in the world stuff. Just like last year they sang their praise more than anyone else on this site and came away with nothing in the end. The fab five? Please who would be stupid enough to say that? Did that fab five win it last year? Maybe they need fab 25 deep deep deep to win. If I were BGers then i would zip it until you actually win something.

    ReplyDelete
  11. come watch a game in plymouth this weekend,if you read the post they were refering to trinity's fab 5.As to last weekends loss in the finals by 25, no excuses,the maine state champs were a better team,it was their 3rd year in a row that they won it.However,it was bg's 4th game of the day,3 of them back to back to back.Their hectic style of play is suited for 1 game.Did I mention mcclung,green,and holder were not at these games.11:12 and 11:22 show me a better team.who ya got?Now remember 1122 the fab 5 was referring to TRINITY,WHEN THEY HAD BONNER, UNDERSTAND.

  15. Nothing like a little bg talk to get the blog kick started. 11:12 and 11:22, sorry to get you so upset,but this is a blog, you understand that right.Who are your teams?People who lay in the weeds and just critisize others are people I don't want to hang out with.Once again I don't know if guertin wins the ship,but they will be quite a show.Remember11:12 and 11:22 there are people that come here to see what is going on in the hoop loop.Just want to keep them informed with my observations.I always keep it positive and don't pick on kids from behind my computer.

  16. For what it is worth,I like the bg bloggers,I like to know what is going on in all of the class l programs.Those people are passinate about their program.I wish more people would give updates.

    That's the point that were making. Every year recently we "got no one" preseason that compares to BG. It's just that with BG for some reason even though they always put the best players on the floor, they fall short. Maybe its time for a coaching change?

  18. When did having fun on this blog become a crime?Lighten up Francis, the dude is giving you his opinion,give yours.Don't throw stones at others,use those stones to build a bridge.Can't we all just get along.Not to add fuel to the fire but I think green/MCCLUNG combined avg will be closer to 40 then 30.

  21. I wonder how many people are afraid to give their opinions on this blog because of people like 1122.Don't fear people like that,they are just bullies who find it easier to rip people then to give their point of views.I wish more people would give info on their teams,no matter what class they are in.

  22. 11:12 bg was defeated by a better team, it happens,no big deal,learn from it and move on.

  23. It is all Summer league it means nothing. See Merrimack last year.

    ReplyDelete
  24. 1:26
    Exactly my point. 9:15 basically said that there could not possibly be a better team put together.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Didn't BG get their heads handed to them this past weekend at the UNH tournament vs Cheveris in the final game? They didn't look to good in then.

    ReplyDelete
  26. no chance to win it all if they run the same offense. terrible shot selection and will run cold in one of the four playoff games again. Thank God!

  27. "Every year recently we "got no one" preseason that compares to BG. It's just that with BG for some reason even though they always put the best players on the floor, they fall short. Maybe its time for a coaching change?"

    In Migneault's first year, '07 led by Oliver Hunter, the team finished barely over .500. His second year, 08' led by Jamie Zajac and Steve Zanette, they knocked off Alex Burt, John Boyatsis and the Dover squad in the first round of the playoffs before losing in the second round to Salem (Josh Jones, Mike Kimball, Larosa and crew). His third year, led by St. Lawrence, McClung and Green, they ended a thrilling season with an untimely collapse in the semifinals. For a program that hasn't won a championship in 28 years, these are significant strides towards achieving their goal. The fact that they've noticeably improved each year while sending multiple players (Hunter, Zajac, St. Lawrence) off to play at the next level is not something to knock Migneault for. While it's too early to make any championship picks, one cannot overlook this year's Bishop Guertin team when considering teams in contention.

    How does claiming that your team is far superior to all other teams giving anyone info? Especially given the track record of being the best team ever during preseason then not producing in the end. If you made comments like, "we are deep", "this could finally be the year" things like that, they would be better accepted. Jeremy basically indicated that they are one of the favorites without bashing NN, take notes. BG bloggers should be humble since they have never won anything, but instead thier mouth is always running. How are you providing useful info when Jeremy says that at full strength this would have been a different game and you come back saying naw,I disagree, NN can't hang with us, no one can. What is usefull info to other bloggers with that comment. If you can make statements like that, why do you call other 'bullies' for responding. If you are looking for someone to become arrogant about thier team, it's not going to happen, thats a BG thing. Others will quietly take the titles while you loudly brag about how good you are and continue to disapoint. Like somone else said, lighten up, its a blog.

  30. When I said it will be a different game in the winter I didn't necessarily mean the final score/result would be different. Just that the way the game was played would be different. North had a bunch of kids playing in that game that will either play JV this winter or sit the bench varsity, Javon will be there. BG was missing 4 key guys. As a result, BG still might end up winning 60-41, but the level of play on both sides will be higher.

    ReplyDelete
  31. 2:02, actually Merrimack wasn't that great last summer. I don't think they ever had one game last summer at BST where they had their whole 8 player rotation all playing together. It was the FALL league where Merrimack really started to click. They had their top 7-8 players their EVERY week and the results followed.

    Merrimack was a very good team last year. I still laugh when people try to give me crap for ranking Merrimack #1 at the beginning of last year. They started out the year like 7-0, ended up in a tie for the #2 seed in Class L. Then yes, they did lose in the first round. But they BARELY lost to Londonderry, and that was without Watson, who was one of their top players.

    Where was i being a bully i was stating the truth. It's a fact you guys come on here and blog about how great you are and how much better you are then everyone else and then you lose so be it. It's funny i am not giving my opinion i am stating facts and because you don't like the truth i am a bully? Who is the one getting their panties in a bunch here? You guys are funny let me know when you actually win something ok.

    The fact that last year they sent 3 to the next level and still couldn't produce might actually be a good reason to knock him. It could be argued that those 3 should have spent more time on the floor and less on the bench. Same will probably happen this year if his rotation is the same as last. Best team in NH again, same results.

    Why do you insist that people here brag about thier team. That's a BG thing. Do it on your own. We know who we like, we don't need to force feed it to everyone. Remember, you said 'once and for all' so you shouldn't be askin that question again right?

    ReplyDelete
  36. 3:54
    They didn't send 3 kids last year to the next level, they sent 1 kid each year for the last 3 years to the next level. Hunter, Zajac and St. Lawrence all graduated one year apart. Maybe you should coach and rotate the players; you sound very much like a wannabe coach.

    Actually I know nothing of BG and have never seen them play. I Just find the posts interesting and respond to them. Sorry for the mis-info, I mis-read the 3 next level post. No, my reference to the rotation is someting I picked up in the blogs when BG lost in the Class Ls. I actually got that from BG posters complaining about the amount of time certain players saw. Interesting Note, I have never watched a single NH team play basketball, ever. All of my information comes from these here blogs. I love these blogs but I must admit, I have no idea if what I say has any merit. I never make anything up, just repeat what I hear from this or other blogs. Normally my comments get a good conversation going back and forth even though I am normally not involved in it after my initial input. I hope this is OK with you guys. If after the season starts, BG is playing as good as it sounds they can, I might actually watch my first NH game. Last year I only watched CC and Andover games along with CCs championship. I am a NH resident, but went to HS in Lawrence MA.

  42. People,go back and read what was written at 9:15,he said they would be high scoring,didn't say anything about winning the ship.Some people read something and turn it into something else ENTIRELY.Read it, and tell me what was so bad,really.

  43. you say the word bg,and people go crazy,all the guy said was they were going to be a high scoring team,and people come out and twist everything around.now i want to go see them play.

  44. Hey, I like that post by 9:15. He may be biased for his team but it's informative and sincere. Let's hear from more teams like that! I read these blogs for those kinds of posts. That and Jeremy's evaluations are the things make this blog worth reading. Besides, he never said "far superior". I say keep 'em coming!

    ReplyDelete
  45. BARELY LOST TO LONDONDERRY. you must have been at another game. Londonderry had this game from the start and flat out out worked them for 3 quarters until they were bickering wioth each other and Coach Goodrich and just quit in the 4th. Stop apologizing for Merrimack. They are not that good and you made them out to be all everything.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Yes, Londonderry barely won. Yes, I was there. The final was 53-47, and would have been less but Londonderry made some FT's at the end. Merrimack led 18-8 early, and trailed by just 1 at the half. Merrimack led 36-34 after 3 quarters. With about 2 minutes left Londonderry only led 44-43.

    Here's the game story: http://www.nhnotebook.com/2010/03/londonderry-upsets-merrimack.html

    Yes, I had Merrimack ranked #1 preseason. But I also said preseason that there was no clear cut #1 team and there could have been 5 or 6 teams you could call the favorite. That's hardly "making them out to be all everything" as you say.

  48. It's a shame that someone posts something about a team, and then gets lambasted and bombarded with negative feedback.Reread what the guy wrote,and then reread the comments.It's like their a lynch mob mentality,no wonder people are AFRAID to post anything about their teams.Sad to say but this has turned into an attack blog,filled with hate.

  53. I am new to BG and let me tell you first hand these parents are lunatics, they mean no harm.These people have so much fun it is unbelievable.I can't believe how much I am looking forward to Plymouth,everyone is sleeping over,everyone is going out after the last game.The kids all sleep in dorms while the parents will be out having a ball.

    ReplyDelete
  54. No one was beating 9:15 up, just responding that is what you do in Blogs. He made very strong comments, possibly highest scoring NH team ever. This means that he thinks they will be the best scoring team in the state in 2010. We were just letting him know that the BG act of arrogantly praising the team before the season starts only to have it fail is getting old. Why not wait until after the season to sing those praises? It comes off as arrogant and it hasn't helped BG in the past. The BG posts heading into the playoffs were entertaining. You can sing your praises without, as he wrote ... "After rereading this I do come off as a jerk".

  55. we had a meeting, no more bg blogging on this site.To many people get irratated with us, sorry.Have a good season everyone.remember it was all in fun,some of you are wound way,way to tight, a sense of humor goes a long way.

  59. Bishop Guerton wins the Plymouth State "king of Mountain" goes undefeated without most of its big guns, Green, Mcclung and Kesty Out, Mcarthy,Kelly, Cuipa, Remillard and Holler in. Holler was big with some big Shots, assists, and very good overall play, was most impressive on floor for BG, Cuipa showed late into pool play, (missed a few early games on Saturday) but played well and was consistant, Remillard was solid, Mcarthy very inconsistant all weekend. Kelly and the boy's played tough defense most of the time.Mig's Played everyone all weekend and the kids played well to take the prize. Teams from Mass, Maine, Vermont, Ny, and NH but overall field was very average as BG had little resistance even with some very big names not in attendance.

  60. hey,no more bg blogging, remember nothing good happens when blogging about bg.I will say this, 8 games total,5 on sunday, the last 4 back to back,to back, to back,really tested the boys.Interesting sidenote,in the semi finals against King Phillip,they had 2 boys who play for baabc{aau in mass, i think those are the initials}real tall and athletic.What an interesting concept an aau coach who encourages his basketball players to actually play basketball,and one of the kids is a definite mid major prospect.I think 834 is bg alumni.

    ReplyDelete
  61. True BG was missing kids but all that depth doesn't help you in the season it helps you in tourneys like this. They only beat Pelham by 2 who was without Spirou

    It's a shame these kids are being told to sit things out in fear of getting hurt, it's actually rather stupid.

    ReplyDelete
  62. fyi- cuipa was late because he was at Middlebury college for a football recruiting day.Didn't think holler was most impressive,he was good,they all were good.bg summer record,24-2.games with all players there 3.that's it no more bg blogging.834 forgot PSYCHO,he played tough all weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  63. 9:57, I'm not sure it's as stupid as you think. Look what happened to Connor Green. He went to a college showcase camp, sprained his wrist when some idiot took him out on a breakaway dunk, and then missed a very important AAU tournament in Springfield last weekend where there were a ton of college coaches in attendance. I don't blame the AAU coach for trying to keep his players injury-free for their big recruiting trip to Florida. There is plenty of high school basketball to be played from August to next March.

  64. how the heck did Pelham only lose to BG by 2 without Spirou (or Lombard)? Who played well for them?

    ReplyDelete
  65. All this pre-season hype about BG does only one thing - puts a tremendous amount of pressure on Mignault. Let's face it, if Mignault doesn't win the whole thing with Green, Mclung, Kesty, Holler, Pyzoka, Remillard, etc., then he should be looking for a new job come next April.

    If BABC can go to all of the quality tournaments that they go to and still allow their players to work and gel with their high school teams than I think that the Jayhawks should be able to do the same thing. Hopefully you Jayhawk people don't think that your program is better than BABC too.

  67. how long did it take dean smith to win his 1st,he is bringing in more kids for hoops by the minute.

    ReplyDelete
  68. You can hurt your ankle walking down the street,make sure you keep the blog updated on how many offers come flowing out of the big recruiting trip to florida.I want rock solid offers, not who was there watching other kids.I love the fact that Holder's,and Madol's coach let's them play in the summer league.

    ReplyDelete
  69. BABC players are coached by a guy that is in the pocket and fed players by BABC. If BABC wants them the coach at Tilton would make his own kids walk to make sure the guys got to Boston. Bad comparison. This is the Summer,offseason for high school hoops and the live period and most recruited time for AAU. Get over it guys you are not going to make any Jayhawk feel guilty for not playing in the KOM.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Mitchell played in Summer league and so did O'Loughlin. And it isn't just about offers it is about loyalty to the team you are on that season.There are players like my son that may not be playing for a scholarship but feel they should be loyal and safe and make sure they are healthy for the final tourneys of the AAU season. Again no one has told our kids not to play school team ball.

    ReplyDelete
  71. It is also a little different since many of the Jayhawks are paying there way to Florida not just sending our kids to hotels with the team. It would be very disappointing for the team,the players and the families if something happened that kept a player from playing. With a house rented,airfare booked and people depending on you to be full strength some parents felt it was better to be safe at the end of the year. Is that really bothering you that bad?

    ReplyDelete
  72. 2:28,so what your saying is green got hurt at a showcase, not a summer league game,is that really true?

    ReplyDelete
  73. When one of the Jayhawks get offered a scholarship for all this tremendous work that is being done for them by their coach and this incredible program come talk to me. Until then all this garbage about "live period and most recruited time" is nothing more than getting people to pay a lot of money for nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  74. We don't want them to feel guilty, we want them to enjoy their youth.

    BABC is a perfect comparison, they are a better program and do it a better way.

    ReplyDelete
  75. more playing time for other kids,not trying to make kids feel guilty.Rivals have the right idea though,let them do both.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I'd like to know the names of the two players from BABC who played up in Plymouth, NH this weekend. I'm not aware of any BABC players who play for King Phillip High School. It's easy to throw that out as an example, and not back it up with facts. And trust me, if King Phillip had two players who were actually BABC players, they wouldn't have lost that tournament to a BG team without Green, Mclung, and Kesty.

    There was actually only 1 player from BABC and his name is Jake Layman. He is a 6'7" power forward and you can look him up on the New England Recruiting Report. BG did beat that team with him playing and the players you named not playing. I don't think that I will trust you any more.

  78. The high school coaches aren't too bothered by it, so why should you? They know that their AAU players are getting better by playing all summer against high-level competition, so it will only help their teams this Winter. These high school teams have plenty of time to "come together" during the Fall Rivier League.

  79. hey buddy,I was talking to the dad who told me that,i think 1 of the kids names was leydon,or layton.I didn't know there was going to be a quiz on monday or i would have gotten you their birth certificates.Of course the dad could have been lying to me,although the kid had at least 5 slam dunks,and 3 long range bombs so I tended to believe him.I know you can't concieve that bg could win without connor,or sean,but that's why they call it a team sport.Wish you well in fla,you explained it quite nicely on why they weren't playing.

  82. parents could care less, they have been winning quite nicely with what they have.I will say this the so called come together period of the fall league doesn't apply to bg,because of the football players that they have will probably not be able to participate.So the summer is the only time to have the whole team together.I can hear everyone reading this going,ahhh that's a shame,poor bg.

  88. Jesse Bopp is a great recruiter, and has been given the green light by Vermont Academy to build the basketball program, which he will do. He tried real hard to get Green, Spirou and some other Jayhawk players to transfer this year and reclassify as Juniors, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen with some of these players. But that doesn't rule out a Green and/or a Spirou joining Bopp the following year for a PG stint. If Madol transfers this year and reclassifies to a Junior, that would mean he would be a Senior the following year and it would be fun to watch him play alongside a Green or a Spirou (or both).
