Old Town vs. MDI Tonight On 92.9 The Ticket
After a full first night of the new high school basketball season, a key class B boys match-up takes place tonight as the Old Town Coyotes host the MDI Trojans.Both teams made it to the Eastern Maine semifinals last year and return key players from those squads. The Coyotes went 17-1 a year ago and will try to replace the graduated Eric Hoogterp who is now playing college ball at USM. Senior Andre Miller will look to pick up some of the scoring after missing most of last season with an ankle injury. Senior point guard Drew Coulombe will direct the team that also returns starting guard Kaleb Gifford.
MDI returns almost their entire team than went 12-6 last season and made a great run in the tournament. This years team is still young with only 2 seniors on the squad. Riley Swanson will lead the charge with his ability to hit the outside shot and also take his defender to the rim. Andrew Phelps returns as the point guard after doing a solid job in that position as a freshman last year.
Tip-off from MacKenzie Gym is 7pm and you can hear the game live on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket, 929theticket.com and on our free mobile app from Radio Pup.
