High school basketball is the reigning monarch of the Downeast sports year, so it’s no wonder parents and athletes have been eagerly watching to see how — or if — this season will proceed, in light of the coronavirus pandemic. On Friday, Dec. 4, the Maine Principals Association (MPA) revised its November guidance and pushed out the start of team basketball practices from Dec. 14 to Jan. 4, but left “skills and drills” on the calendar to begin Dec. 7. Local schools are planning accordingly.
