Improving Basketball & Recognizing Players & Coaches in Maine
Maine Association of Basketball Coaches

Spirit of the Game

In 2009, the Maine McDonald's Spirit of the Game Award was founded to honor two high school seniors who embody the spirit of the game of basketball, exemplify sportsmanship, show an ability to overcome obstacles and boundaries, and support and inspire their teammates and coaching staff. The recipients are honored at the All-Star Awards Banquet held the night prior to the All-Star games. In 2010, these awards were renamed to honor the 2009 recipients - The Patrick Thibodeau Spirit of the Game Award (West Division) and the Joshua Titus Spirit of the Game Award (East Division).
