NHIAA Div. II boys' basketball: Souhegan upsets Portsmouth

On the day Souhegan High School of Amherst hosted the memorial service for 2012 graduate Tony Barksdale, the school's boys' basketball team honored the former Sabers player with a 69-65 upset of second-seeded Portsmouth in the NHIAA Division II quarterfinals Saturday.

Souhegan, the No. 7 seed, advanced to face No. 3 Lebanon, a 61-34 winner over Bishop Brady of Concord, in Wednesday's semifinals at the University of New Hampshire's Lundholm Gymnasium.

Services were held at Souhegan one week after Barksdale, a Boston University student, was found unconscious at an off-campus apartment and rushed to the hospital, where he died a few hours later. The Souhegan team attended the service, during which head coach Mike Heaney was one of the speakers.

In other Division II quarterfinals, top-ranked and unbeaten Pembroke Academy beat No. 8 Pelham, 47-35, and No. 13 Coe-Brown Northwood Academy ousted No. 12 Windham, 54-39.

Pembroke will face Coe-Brown in the 7:30 semifinal, after Souhegan takes on Lebanon at 6 p.m.
