North celebrates after Matt Fleming scores winning basket

The Northern Maine team with representatives from Class AA, A, and B schools used a balanced attack and an overtime sudden victory basket to defeat the South, 120-118 at the 2019 McDonalds Senior All Star Weekend at Husson University on March 9th. Recently named Mr. Maine Basketball Matt Fleming of Bangor High School scored the winning basket in "sudden victory" after the North took the ball out of bounds with 2.6 seconds left in regulation and passed it to the South, who promptly made the basket to send the game into overtime. The unusual circumstance led to an unorthodox ruling which mandated that the first basket in overtime would win the contest. In the overtime, the North won the tap and Fleming got the ball, drove to the basket and laid it in for the victory.

Damien Vance, Fleming's teammate at Bangor High School, led the North with 15 points. Fleming's final two points gave him a total of 14. Garret Trask, a 6' guard from Herman, scored 13 points. Mt. Blue High School's 6'1" point guard James Anderson scored 12 points. Scoring 11 each were Jonah Hudson of Presque Isle, Mr. Basketball finalist Wol Maiwen of Edward Little HS, Conner Robertson of Orono HS, and Cooper Wirkala of Oceanside HS. Oxford Hill's Spencer Strong added 10 points.

The South, who led at halftime 60-59, we led by Andrew Hartell of Cape Elizabeth with 26 points. Mountain Valley High School's Keegan Davis scored 19 points with 5 three pointers. Nick Feorilla, a 6'8" forward from Scarborough HS, also scored 18 points. Slam Dunk Champion Andrew Storey of Greely finished with 16 points.
