After the Mount View boys basketball team knocked off defending state Class B champion Camden Hills Jan. 22 in a regular-season game, high school hoop fans may have wondered if they would have the opportunity to see the rubber match between the Mustangs and Windjammers when the Eastern Class B playoffs begin next week.

It appears those fans will get their wish — sooner rather than later.

The Windjammers (16-1, 131.7901 Heal Points) and the Mustangs (14-3, 116.6667 points) will play their third game against one another of the season on Saturday, Feb. 6 at Cony High School in Augusta as the two squads will tip off in the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class B championship game. The boys game will begin at 7 p.m., with the girls title clash set for 5 p.m. at the same site.

The girls championship game will feature Leavitt of Turner (16-1, 126.9444 points) and Winslow (15-2, 106.9753 points). Currently, Leavitt is second in Western Class B and Winslow third in Eastern Class B in the Mainen Principals’ Association Heal Point Standings.

For the boys, Camden Hills is first in Eastern Class B and Mount View second in the same region. Teams on the outside of the KVAC title mix include Medomak Valley (13-4, 92.9012 points), which is fifth in Eastern Class B, and Maranacook of Readfield (13-4, 89.6605 points), which is fourth in Western Class B.

Camden Hills and Mount View split their regular-season series, both winning on their home floors. The Windjammers defeated the Mustangs 66-42 in a physical game Dec. 4 that opened the 2009-10 campaign, while the ‘Stangs pulled the 47-45 upset win over the ‘Jammers Jan. 22 that ended Camden Hills’ 36-game winning streak that included being unbeaten all of last season.

The Windjammers are the two-time defending KVAC champions, having beaten Rockland 61-35 in last year’s title game at Cony and upending Maranacook of Readfield 79-73 in overtime in the 2008 final. The Windjammers fell to the Black Bears 76-68 in the 2007 title game.

Mount View athletic director Dan Fitzpatrick said he does not believe the Mustang boys basketball team has ever played in the conference championship game.

Camden Hills coach Jeff Hart, in his 28th year, has led the Windjammers to 11 conference crowns during his tenure.
