A few tidbits from Hall-Dale’s 56-47 win against Winthrop on Monday night in Farmingdale.

• Many of the fans in attendance weren’t even born when Cameron Brown starred at Hall-Dale and led them to  state title in 1974. They got a sense of his career Monday when his No. 34 jersey was retired in a ceremony before the game. Along with Brad Moore, who preceded Brown by three years, he is Hall-Dale’s most accomplished male star.

 • Brown, who finished with 1,215 points in his career, is one of six male players at Hall-Dale to score over 1,000 points. The others include Moore, Scott Woodside, Matt Wheelock, Chris Benner and Ryan Leach.

• While Brown’s jersey will be retired in the school’s trophy case, Hall-Dale coach Jim Patrick presented Brown with a No. 34 game jersey on behalf of the team that he could take home.

• Brown’s oldest son Cameron played basketball at Rockland High School, where he was also named valedictorian, and for a year at Bates College.

• Winthrop’s Taylor Morang showed a few growing pains in turning the ball over against Hall-Dale pressure. But the freshman point guard did many more good things than bad. He showed excellent court awareness in finding teammates and showed a knack for scoring on tough drives, including two layups against 6-foot-5 center Sam Shepherd.

• Shepherd, who is averaging seven blocked shots a game, finished with four as he played for a little over two quarters. He also led the team with eight rebounds.

• Hall-Dale is in fourth place in the Western Maine Class C tournament standings at 10-3 after going 6-12 last season. The Bulldogs face their toughest opponent of the season Thursday night at unbeaten Dirigo.

• Winthrop senior Tyler Foster has played several roles for the Ramblers. He’s the team’s best rebounder (he had eight Monday) and often helps dribble the ball against pressure. He’s also a good outside shooter.

• The Ramblers also got a nice effort from another freshman, Dakota Carter, who scored two points, grabbed four rebounds and played solid defense in a reserve role.
