Martin, Maranacook escape

Top-ranked Maranacook and high-scoring guard Ryan Martin ducked a first-round haymaker from Rockland this morning and held on for a 59-57 win in an Eastern Class B quarterfinal. Martin scored 18 in the first half and put up 25 for the game.

Another highly-ranked Maine high school hoopster, 6-8 Tom Knight of Dirigo, begins Class C West tournament play Monday with an 8:30 p.m. quarterfinal against North Yarmouth Academy.

The anticipated final is Dirigo vs. Winthrop (and Sam Leclerc). The two teams met in late January with UMaine coach Ted Woodward in the audience. Dirigo won the low scoring affair by four points.
