  4. To get to BG Milford did what was necessary in a 71-67 win over Souhegan. Seth Cordts had 30 points in an outstanding performance for the Sabers but it wasn't quite enough as Holder and O'Laughlin had strong game - O'Laughlin finishing in the lane with a explosive dunk once. Many second and third attempts off of offensive rebounds for Milford that Souhegan just couldn't do anything about.

  5. what happened with BG who played and who didnt in this game?

  6. BG had a football camp right before along with playing back to back games in which they won the first one by 40. They are a run and gun team whose style is meant to play only 1 game at a time...

  8. I'll give you that Raymond, nice job beating Greater Lawrence. That's a good win for your program and you should feel good about it. Monday night at SNHU you play Trinity, another good test.

  9. The main reason Souhegan bows out to Milford was turnovers, they commited atleast 20 turnovers in that game

  10. Gee 9:02..how do you know exactly how many points Cordts scored..unless your his dad...lol!

  11. BG never loses because other teams are better than them do they. Fact is you have no answer for either O'Loughlin or Holder. Milford was missing way more than you were and they beat you pretty bad. Think about it, Milford was missing three starters including probably the first guy off the bench in Philbrick. Can't we just agree that you were outplayed? I mean who knows we play again and you guys hit shots it could be different but last night you were flat out beaten by a team that out shot,outpassed and out hustled you for two halves.

  12. Run and Gun? You guys have 20 guys on your bench and play 20 minutes a game. The game last night should have been to your benefit. My god Milford was using mostly JV players weren't they?

    Come on guys i know you have a little more class then that? Milford played and won with only two starters on the team thats like playing 5 on 2 the whole game and you guys have a solid stacked 12 men on the bench like you do and still won by twenty plus. The least you can do is say nice job.

  14. Corts had twenty not thirty.

  15. Jeremy,

    What is your take on Trinity now, with the loss of Madol and Lafond?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Mignault didn't let Connor Green play in the BST semifinal and final because he missed all the summer league games due to his AAU commitments. The Milford coach let O'Laughlin play although he missed most of the summer league games for the same reason. Different approaches, I guess. Based on the outcome of the game, BG could probably have used Green out there.

  17. Man o Man will a BG program ever lose simply because they were beaten by a better team... ever? There always seems to be an excuse.

    ReplyDelete
  18. No need for excuses we lost to a better team on Friday night. Milford played hard and shot very well. Hopefully we will get another shot at them next Wednesday night.

  19. This is where this blog is going wrong - the Cordts kid played a nice game an kept his team in it. But two people have to take shots at him. Why not just say the kid played well and carried his team. Most fans here want to read the highlights on what kids and teams are distinguishing themselves. Have to ask Jeremy again how he defines what to edit and what to allow. Its pretty tough to follow most days.

  20. The question on Connor Greene not playing and Mike O playing is a good one. Which program was more worried about a summer league win.

    ReplyDelete
  21. alright besides jamie h mike o and cordts who else played good for souhegan and milford? both teams will need some bright spots off the bench this season to win. Who were they looking like, and i would like to see a game between bg and milford when they have all their starters just to settle this argument would probably be a great game.

  22. 8:52 no one took any shots at Cordts, what are you talking about? Let's try not to be so sensitive here, people.

    One person said that he had 20 not 30 points. That's not bashing, that's just making sure the facts and stats being reported are accurate. Ten one person said, "Gee 9:02..how do you know exactly how many points Cordts scored..unless your his dad...lol!" I let that go because I assumed that the comment was a joke at MY expense. The other day in a separate post someone aid Bedford's Richard O'Brien scored 30 points against Raymond. I replied by asking how someone could know the exact number of points he scored and then someone else said it must have been his dad or something like that. So now in this post someone says Cordts scored 30 and then someone replies by saying "it must be his Dad lol." I don't know who posted it, but it was obviously a joke. C'mon people, relax!

  23. Argument? I do not see it as a argument I see it as a game that Milford seemed more motivated for and outplayed BG. Would it happen again who knows. Basketball is a funny game sometimes and these two teams could play 10 times and they could spit 5-5 that is basketball. Not to take anything away from Milford's win or add anything to BG's loss. That is basketball let's leave it at that.
    As for who else played well for Souhegan, I thought Len shows a lot of promise he really reminds me a lot of Mitchell in his court vision and ability to make others better. Gilligan still seems unable to get beyond his emotions which is a shame. He has to be able to play through things. I know he has all the physical skills to be effective so lets hope that he gets the emotional part of the game under control so he can live up to his potential also.
    Scott McCallum and Big Ben played well for Milford at times although it was O'Loughlin and Holder that did most of the damage for Milford.
    I continue to think how scary is MIlford with three guards in the starting line up that can drive,pass and make threes on the floor at the same time. Scary.

  24. 8:54, i dont know why people like yourself what to discredit the signifgance of summer games. The emotion and level of play is very important in devloping a championship mentality. You cannot every simulate these game situations in practice, the signigance of winning a summer league is huge in creating the mind set of a team, thats why coaches love this program, you can only improve in game situations if your put in game situations. Most summer program are pretty half ass, but this program has put kids/coaches in an actual game simulated enviroment, if there not useing that as a tool to get better, than there missing the boat.

  25. Any game is a good chance for coaches to teach and simulate real games but many teams are playing guys that will not see big minutes come the regular season. It is nice that the kids are taking the opportunity to work on the game but when some of the other guys come back you can bet the coaches will put the best guys on the floor and with teams the kids getting the experience will be back on the bench come the regular season. So to give the summer league more weight than that is not reality in my eyes.

  26. Your proving my point, read what you wrote, thats exactly what i'm saying. and not every summer league is a game simulation, if kids and coahes are invested, its a waste of time, plain an simple!! in any sport.

  27. sorry 8:54 and 10:35 are different people.. wasn't arguing with you.

    ReplyDelete
  28. No worries, all i'm saying is if kids/coaches participate in a program of integrity, a program that estbalishes a sense of emotional investement, they will improve ten fold over a program that does not create such an enviroment. That includeds roll players etc. you can never inticipate the situations that will arrive in a scholastic game if a kid has been put in a similar enviroment already then the wow factor is displaced a bit, it will give any kid that has been involved in that situation already an opportunity to succedd. Does that mean its always gonna work perfect when the situation arises? of course not, but the more you put kids in invested situations the % of failure rate is much smaller. Thats what the BST program is designed to do, and know one can argue the opportunity this program has provided for our programs.

  29. Invested? LOL, What is this the NYSE?

    It a summer league nothing more or less. It is not the construct of any league that gets the kids "invested", it is the sports program of the school they play for. Poor programs are going to play poor no matter what league they play in. Top notch programs will get the maximum from their players wether they are playing in BST or the UNH tournament or other games that they set-up for summer play.

    Many teams indeed do not have players that will eat up a majority of minutes come this winter. It does not matter, because in a year or two these guys playing this summer will BE those major minute players!

  30. the bst is an unbelievable program,very well run.I like the fact that the ref's really let them play to give the kid's an idea of how physical high school hoops is.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Common sense, is its the structure of the school team they play for that creates a sense of competiveness. But if your not in a summer program that kids/coaches give a crab weather they win or lose or not,you might as well stay home, weather its your core players or role player.

  32. This thread was brought to my attention and i felt as though we should address it. 5:48 and 9:14 we greatly appreciate your support of the program. Our main goal/objective for all our summer programs is to create a more intense enviroment than any other summer program has been able to produce, the reason for that is, if you can provide an atmosphere where kids/coaches want to learn/teach and really want to win at the same time, and they are striving for a common goal (ie: championship, bragging rights, etc.) then you give the kids/coaches a forum to get better that will help them tremendously in their shcolastic seasons. I think its natural for any kid who is an athlete to be competitive, but thats not always enough, if you can put some weight on something(program) that emotional investment that kids/coaches put in will double maybe triple what they get out of it, in both the short term and the long term. We have worked tirelessly with high school and college coaches to continuously improve all our programs and constructive critism is always welcomed. 12:57, we would love to hear any suggestions you might have or anyone elses as well,so long as its not investing in the stock market, lol. feel free to email us at bsthoops@yahoo.com. Great games tonight at SNHU for the "Tournament of Champions" starting at 7pm, come have some fun and watch some great basketball. Thanks again for all the support, its greatly appreciated.
