In the News

AUGUSTA (AP) -- A pair of special Maine high school basketball players got a surprise when they were interviewed on the CBS Early Show.

Patrick Thibodeau of Greely High School and Josh Titus of Edward Little High School, whose court exploits drew widespread attention this season, were invited to the Boston Celtics' summer basketball camp during Thursday's airing.

Thibodeau, who has Down syndrome, shot a 3-pointer for the second basket of the game then hit another at the final buzzer. Titus, who has autism, entered the game in the fourth quarter and made four baskets, including a 3-pointer that sent the home crowd into a frenzy.

Maine McDonald's owners sent the two boys and their parents to the NCAA Final Four games in Detroit last weekend.

Have a fabulous day~
