Recap: Day 3 at The Bash

FARMINGTON – The hump day of the 42nd Annual Mike Lee Holiday Basketball Bash featured 10 games, including four boys quarterfinals.

DAY 3: PHOTOS | ON-DEMAND VIDEO

While the boys quarters took place on the third day of The Bash, the girls stole the show as the most entertaining game of the tourney was an overtime battle between the Kennett and Concord Christian girls. The Division IV Kingsmen, featuring four eighth graders and two freshmen on their roster, gave the Division II Eagles all they could handle, but came up just short in overtime, 58-52.

Kennett advances to the title game out of the girls Pool A and will take on Pool B winner Coe-Brown in the championship game on Thursday at 5:30 pm.

The stage is now set for day four of the tourney, which features the final girls consolation game of the tournament, the Skills Competition and 3-Point Contest and then the boys semifinals. Jacob VanRyn and Sam Reynolds will be on the call for the boys semifinals.

Ball 603 to cover The Bash

Ball 603 has partnered with the 42nd Annual Mike Lee Holiday Basketball Bash to bring you live and free coverage of all games of New Hampshire’s largest and the Seacoast’s longest-running holiday basketball tournament. Farmington High School plays host to the 24-team boys and girls tournament that features an impressive 45 games over five days from Dec. 26-30.

Our coverage of The Bash will get bigger and better as the tournament progresses. Shows on the opening day of the tournament will feature basic one-camera productions with on-screen score, while the semifinals and final will feature multiple cameras, replays and graphics as well as some great announcers that will be announced later this week.

We will also be holding “Meet the Team” photo shoots with several teams in attendance and will have professional action photos of all games as well. The coverage of The Bash will be unprecedented for a New Hampshire high school sporting event and we guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

To learn more about the tournament, including brackets and schedules, log on to the official website of The Bash. You can also check out the 20-page tournament program that we also designed for the event, which features tournament notes, history, records, rosters and more.

Enjoy the show!

📰 Opening day is on the way

The wait is almost over. On Friday, December 10th, 84 of the 88 NHIAA boys varsity basketball teams will be in action with 42 games around the state as the 2021-22 season gets underway.

St. Thomas Aquinas hits the road to take on Hillsboro-Deering at 5:30 pm to mark the first official tilt of the new campaign. The Saints and Hillcats last squared off on February 28, 2020 in the regular-season finale as St. Thomas came away with an easy 72-46 victory at home.

Eight other contests tipoff at 6:00 pm, with 24 match-ups at 6:30 pm and nine more at 7:00 pm. It’s the most games on a single day all season long, so there’s no good reason to not get out and catch some local action on Friday night.

See you at the gym.
