BANGOR – With high school basketball season set to begin soon, you’ll see many of the sights and sounds we love here in Maine: packed gyms, three-pointers and much more. However, there are some things – or people – you might be looking past.
They’re the ones you never notice until they make a mistake – or at least when we think they do. Of course, no basketball game can be complete without the referees. Many of them are simply people who want to stay close to the game they love, but it takes a much bigger commitment to be an official than most realize.
