Under the Lights: Five McLaughlins inducted into Hall on the same day

5 hall of famers

Last Saturday’s New England Basketball Hall of Fame ceremony was special for the over 300 new inductees.

The family of the day was Andover’s McLaughlins with Tom (college career) being inducted along with his children Tommy and Ashley (high school careers) and Corry (college scholar-athlete). Tom’s brother Frank, the former Harvard coach, also was inducted.

Tom starred at UMass, averaging 9.6 points and 4.8 rebounds in three years after transferring from Tennessee. Tommy scored a whopping 1,564 points despite missing his senior year at Andover with a knee injury, Ashley scored 1,150 points and led the Golden Warriors to a state title. Corry won several academic awards and earned a 4.0 GPA as a senior at UVM. He also was UVM’s co-captain.

Black Bear great

Inducted into the New England Basketball Hall of Fame for their college heroics were Jamie Cassidy of Methuen (Maine), Todd Orlando of Andover (Bentley) and Merrimack’s Joe Dickson and Steve McMahon as well as Phillips girls coach Lani Boardman-Silversides (UVM).

Andover native David Hixon (Amherst coach, 2 national titles) was inducted for the second time, this time in the icon category.

Cakes are baking

UTL birthday wishes go out to UConn women’s hockey player Kelly Horan of Methuen (23 today), Central’s All-MVC pitcher Andrew Hamel (18 tomorrow), former Haverhill High New England champion wrestler Isaiah Williams (turns 21 Tuesday), URI runner Lanie Jowett from Atkinson (turns 19 Tuesday) and St. Anselm volleyball coach Dan Young of Salem (turns 34 Saturday).

Logue’s legacy

After a 44-year hockey coaching career, North Andover’s Jim Logue is retiring. He’s been an assistant the last 20 years at BC, and had stints at North Andover High and Merrimack College, too.

Few in the business are more respected than Logue, who was a star goalie at BC, a two-time Beanpot MVP and the 1968 Olympic team starting goalie. In 2011 he won the prestigious Parker-York Award for contributions to New England hockey.
