Buzzer Beater Classic – Gym Rat’s teams Maiella and LaClair


Coach LaClair and Coach Maiella competed in the April 14-15th Zero Gravity Buzzer Beater Classic playing in Nashua and Massachusettes venues.

Coach Maiella’s 14u Boys finished the Buzzer Beater Classic tournament winning their pool 3-0. They finished Game One with Gym Rats 40 vs NH fire ending at 19.  Though the NH Gym Rats had a slow start in the first half – up by 5 only – the second half showed this team’s muscle finishing strong and playing like a family. In the other two games, NH Gym Rats beat Cap City 54-13 and defeated TSC AAU 51 to 18.

Coach LaClairs 14u Boys fought hard against B2L-Morris but finished with a loss 38-58. Hunter Larocque had 26 points in the first game and kept the team close with five 3’s in five consecutive possessions — super impressive at any level. Game Two ended with a narrower spread but the team couldn’t pull it out against #2 MV Eagles 34-41.
