A couple leftovers from Monday night’s game between Carrabec and Madison:

• Melissa White transferred from Carrabec to Madison before the school year. She would have been Carrabec’s starting point guard this season, but instead starts for the Bulldogs.

“Being with them for three years, and then playing against them my first game, it was a little much,” White said.

White had a game-high 11 points and also drove to the basket enough to take 11 free throws. When she was introduced before the game, she hugged Carrabec’s Jocelyn Jackson, who was introduced just before White.

“I have some friends over there,” White said. “It was different playing (against) them, because I played with them since I’ve been growing up. But it was enjoyable. I liked it.”

• The two players who impressed me the most for Carrabec were sophomore forward Macy Andrews and freshman center Emma Pluntke. Andrews stands 5-7, but she really hustles and seems to know where the ball is going, and she grabbed 12 rebounds.

Pluntke, a 6-foot freshman, pulled down 13 rebounds. Better yet, she committed only two fouls. Pluntke doesn’t have the post moves yet, but she has a lot of things players don’t develop so early — She’s got great hands, she can rebound without fouling, she doesn’t take herself out of the game by trying to block 30 shots a night, and she’s a very good foul shooter. She made five of eight free throws, while all the other players combined to shoot 14 for 43.
