Brooke Reynolds is among a handful of former top Maine basketball high school players plying their trade at Central Maine Community College these days, and coach Andrew Morong is happy to have them all. “The talent level in Maine High School basketball is high, if you do your homework,” Morong said. “You’re always looking for the player out there who fits. They might not always be the best player all the time, but we’re lucky this year that a lot of the girls we have locally, and we’re going to be getting next year, not only do they fit here, but they’re the best, either on their teams on in their conference, or in some cases the state.” Reynolds, an Edward Little High school graduate from Poland, proved Morong’s point and then some Sunday. The talented forward knocked down 21 points on 9-of-16 shooting and hauled in five rebounds to help lead the CMCC Mustangs to a 71-60 win over NHTI in the Yankee Small College Conference final in South Portland.
