FAVORITES: It always comes down to Rangeley and Richmond in this regional, and this year shouldn't be any different. Richmond, with perhaps the best player in 6-foot senior center Jamie Plummer, is the two-time defending champ while Rangeley, which has three players over 6 feet, is ranked No. 1.

WATCH OUT FOR: No. 3 Hyde. The Phoenix's only loss this season was to Class C playoff team Old Orchard Beach (3). But Hyde may be without freshman center Diamond Brown, who suffered a knee injury.

PLAYERS TO WATCH: Kara Fischer, senior, guard. Hyde (10 ppg, 5.0 steals); Blayke Morin, freshman, center, Rangeley (11 ppg, 10 rpg); Jamie Plummer, senior, center, Richmond (21 ppg, 10 rpg); Taylor Esty, sophomore, forward, Rangeley (11 ppg, 7 rpg)

DID YOU KNOW: Richmond's senior class has known nothing but success. The Bobcats have captured the last two Western Class D basketball titles, the last three state Class D soccer championships and the last three Western Class D softball championships.


FAVORITES: Washburn is the two-time defending state champ and, even with a new coach (Diana Trams) is regarded as a huge favorite to repeat. The Beavers play a relentless style that saw them put up 100 points on Southern Aroostook.

WATCH OUT FOR: No. 2 Schenck of East Millinocket. The Wolverines can run with anyone and had a couple of impressive wins over Class C playoff teams Orono (3) and Houlton (4).

PLAYERS TO WATCH: Parise Rossignol, junior, guard, Van Buren (30 ppg, 8 rpg, 5 assists); Morgan Thompson, junior, forward, Schenck (20 ppg, 10 rpg); Kristin Thompson, senior, guard, Schenck (11 ppg, 7 rpg, 3 apg); Carmen Bragg, junior, guard, Washburn; Mackenzie Worcester, sophomore, guard, Washburn

DID YOU KNOW: Matt Rossignol, the Van Buren coach, scored 2,257 points in his career for the Crusaders. But he may not be the highest-scoring member of his family soon. His daughter, junior guard Parise, already has 1,817 points in 61 career games. She averages 29.8 points per game.
