Leavitt High's boys' basketball players wore warm-up t-shirts with "Daigle 33 RIP'' on the back.

EVERYONE SEEMED to be having trouble shooting foul shots at the Expo. Even Cape Elizabeth's Theo Bowe missed three, including two in overtime.

"Real nervous,'' said Robinson. "Then I said, 'this is just like any other gym.' ''
