PLYMOUTH, N.H. - The leading scorer on the Plymouth State College men's basketball team has been recognized by the Little East Conference for his performance in a holiday tournament last weekend in Washington, D.C.
Senior forward Tony Martinez (Barnstead, N.H.) was selected to this week's LEC Honor Roll. It is the third time this season and the 11th time in the last two years that Martinez has been a member of the Conference Weekly Honor Roll.
A 6'3" power forward, Martinez averaged 21.0 points and 3.0 rebounds in two games at the D3hoops.com Classic, hosted by Catholic University last weekend in D.C. He was selected to the All-Tournament Team after shooting 59 percent from the floor and 78 percent from the line.
PSC finished 1-1 in the tournament, dropping the opener to Hobart, 98-80, before coming back to defeat Roger Williams in the consolation game, 78-70.
Martinez continues to be one of the top players in New England. He ranks third in the Little East in scoring (21.2 ppg), 12th in rebounding (6.2 rpg), sixth in field goal percentage (.497), and seventh in free throw percentage (.744)
The Panthers, 5-5 overall under second-year head coach John Scheinman, return to action this Sunday (Jan. 7) with a non-conference affair at Castleton State (2:00 p.m.). PSC has three home games next week, hosting UMass Boston Tuesday (Jan. 9) at 7:30 p.m., Bowdoin Thursday (Jan. 11) at 5:30 p.m., and UMass Dartmouth Sunday (Jan. 14) at 3:00 p.m.
