Gilbert named to BDN All-Maine School Basketball Third Team
Piscataquis Community High School senior Bryce Gilbert, a 6-0 guard for the Pirates, is a Third Team selection on the 63rd Bangor Daily News All-Maine Schoolboy Basketball Team. The honor places Gilbert among the top 15 players across the state of Maine in all five classes.
Gilbert was one of the state’s top scorers in the face of numerous gimmick defenses, and concluded his career as the top scorer in PCHS history with 1,474 points.
The versatile guard, who was named to the All-Penobscot Valley Conference First Team after leading the league in scoring during the regular season, was at his best in the open court. He often grabbed a defensive rebound and drove the full 84 feet to create his own fast-break chances or generate scoring bids for teammates. Gilbert will continue his basketball career at the University of Maine at Fort Kent.
Senior Nick Foley of Class D champion Greenville HIgh School was one of 29 players from throughout the state to receive honorable mention recognition on the Bangor Daily News All-Maine Schoolboy Basketball Team.
Both Gilbert and Foley earned honorable mention status during their junior seasons one year ago.
