PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — There'll be a Maine connection when the upstart Davidson Wildcats take on Wisconsin in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA national basketball tournament.

Davidson sophomore Bryant Barr was playing for Falmouth High School two years ago. This Friday he'll be playing before millions of TV viewers and more than 70,000 spectators at Detroit's Ford Field.

For the season, the 6-foot-4 Barr averaged about 5 points and one rebound per game. Barr is Falmouth High School's all-time leading scorer. He averaged 25 points a game his senior season.

I've really enjoyed your blog these past few days.

The two quebec players got a bit a press in the local papers too! March Madness only gets minimal coverage here.

I played pick-up with Max Gosselin last year in Montreal and have kept a eye on Davidson since. A heck of a player and a great guy too.
