Players, coaches share tourney memories

6 years ago

Over, the years, the Bangor Daily News has chronicled many high school basketball tourney memories of coaches and players.

We went into our archives to share some of those memories. Some good, some not so good.

But, memories nonetheless.

Van Buren’s Matt Rossignol:

“It would probably have to be when we beat Schenck in 1985 to make it to the Eastern Maine [Class B] final. It put Van Buren in the Eastern Maine final for the first time,” said Rossignol. “Schenck [of East Millinocket] had a good ballclub and I remember our coach [Bob Hebert] worried that Schenck would slow the ball down on us. They knew I scored a lot and we had a high-scoring team.

“But that was the last thing Schenck wanted to do. I was lucky enough to keep hitting that night. I finished with 51 points. It was one of those cliches you’ve heard Michael Jordan use about the basket looking so big. But it did that night.”
