Host Ben Franklin-Masonville Cove (11-4) used a trio of 12-point scorers and switching defenses to keep No. 15 Dunbar (8-8) off balance in the second half for a 62-56 win Tuesday.
The Poets, led by Keshawn Hampton with a game-high 16 points, brought the pressure in the first half and built a 33-26 halftime lead. But in the second half, Ben Franklin settled down and kept switching zone defenses every two possessions, which frustrated Dunbar and led to turnovers and the lead.
Tre Henriques, Terry Page and Robert Goodwin each scored 12 points for the Bayhawks in the upset.
North Harford 47, Fallston 45: The host Hawks (4-11) missed the front end of a couple of one-and-ones in the closing minute, but the Cougars (8-7) missed a potential game-winning 3-pointer with 4.3 seconds left.
Andrew Klatka and Brett Hurley each had 13 points for North Harford.
No. 8 City 58, Western 45: DeAsia Meyers scored 12 points and the visiting Knights (14-1) never trailed.
City led 28-18 at halftime. India Myles had a game-high 16 points for the Doves.
