Bishop Brady boys top Kennett at tourney

The inaugural Frank Monahan Basketball Showcase was deemed a success Sunday at Bishop Brady of Concord.

“Couldn’t ask for a better day,” said tournament director Marshall Crane. “We had a near-sellout crowd, three outstanding games and Frank’s family was on hand to see it all.”

Monahan, who died of a heart attack in 2000, led the Green Giants to three straight Class I championship games (1996-98). Brady won the title in 1997. From 1970 to 1980 he was the coach of the men’s basketball program at Merrimack College in North Andover, Mass.

The basketball showcase, postponed in December because of weather, featured two prep games and a Division II match-up between Brady and Kennett of Conway won by the host team, 69-48.

Notre Dame Prep of Fitchburg, Mass., defeated Lee Academy of Maine, 82-69. Brewster Academy of Wolfeboro upended Jean-de-Brebeuf of Montreal, 80-69.

“Frank’s wife (Fran), son (Mike) and daughters (Kelly and Kate) were in attendance and were very appreciative of what we were doing,” said Crane. Money raised from the event, according to Crane, will be donated to athletic and academic causes in the local community.

In addition to this event, Crane said each year the Concord Country Club will host the Frank Monahan Foundation Golf Classic set for July 14.
