Eastern A Boys Semi-Final Predictions/Strategies

5 Bangor vs. 1 Hampden…Hampden won 2 close games during the regular season. Hampden won the season opener in overtime at Hampden. 66-59.  Near the end of the season Hampden edged Bangor 42-39 at Bangor 

Will Bangor play Hampden straight up man to man, will they play a 2-3 zone or will they use a junk defense against McCue of Hampden. Will Hampden stay man to man against Bangor or will they go with a zone.

With 10 points seperating the teams in the two games, it is real tough to beat a tough llocal rival 3 times in one season.

Bangor was my only upset prdiction in the quarter-finals and I am going with the Rams in this one, for their second upset in a row. Law of averages are on Bangor’s side

7 Edward Little vs. 3 Mt. Blue…Mt. Blue is my darkhorse favorite. They beat EL at Mt. Blue during the regular season in their only meeting in the regular season. Mt. Blue has good size and excellent shooters and they scored 72 points in their 20 plus win over Brunswick. They gave Hampden 2 close games and split with bangor and beat Bangor at Bangor late in the season.

Plus the law of averages are on Mt. Blue’s side, they have been to the tourneu many times and they are due to win it. My pick Mt. Blue
