Martin scores 31 as Edmeston tops Franklin

JARED BOMBA | The Daily Star Edmeston’s Josh Martin releases a shot during the third quarter of Thursday’s Tri-Valley League game at Franklin.

Josh Martin led all scorers with 31 points as Edmeston hit 12 3-pointers in a 73-47 defeat of Franklin on Thursday, Jan. 23, in Tri-Valley-League boys basketball.

The Panthers took a 23-14 lead after one quarter, which extended to 41-23 entering halftime. The Purple Devils showed signs of a response in the third quarter, but could not seriously threaten the deficit as Edmeston received a steady dose of production from beyond the arc.

Martin was at the center of that production, hitting five from deep and finding others for open triples off pick-and-roll action. He totaled 11 field goals and a 4-for-5 clip from the foul line for his 31.

“Josh Martin’s probably the best player in the Tri-Valley. It’s very hard to contain him,” Franklin coach Skylar Thompson said.

Nate Jennings followed with 19 points on eight field goals, two of them from deep. Tyler Jennings scored all nine of his points from long range, while Shane Smith (seven points) and Brendan Ashton (three) each hit one triple.

Matt Serrao led Franklin with 17 points on eight field goals, and Leo Temple totaled 16 on six field goals and a 2-for-5 mark at the line. He also had two 3-pointers.
