The Red Riots held off a tough Hermon squad Tuesday, winning 54-52.

HERMON - There were several No. 1 seeds up for grabs Tuesday night, but the one in Class B North girls basketball would be at the mercy of a winner-takes-all contest.

ORONO - Unified has become a staple in Maine for the opportunities it provides to special needs athletes. But these basketball stars got an additional opportunity to meet the stars they watch at the Cross Insurance Center up close and in person Monday afternoon.

BANGOR - Most teams that turn the ball over 28 times in one game don't end up winning, but most teams don't have the versatility of Maine women's basketball.
