Franklin edges Columbus North 55-51 in boys basketball

                COLUMBUS, Ind. – Sophomore Drew Byerly scored 18 points with five rebounds and four assists Tuesday evening (Feb. 6) to lead the Franklin boys basketball team to a 55-51 victory over Columbus North in Memorial Gym.

                Junior Reece Thomson added 12 points while juniors Cory Richards and Blaine Wentzel each contributed 10 points for the Grizzly Cubs, who improved to 12-6.

                Senior Jaylen Flemmons netted 17 points with six rebounds and three assists to pace the Bull Dogs (11-8). Freshman Blake Barker, senior Bailey Hester and junior Lakeevan Whedon each provided eight points, while senior Trey Vincent had six points.

                In a game that featured five ties and 10 lead changes, the visitors took a two-point lead in the final minute. The Bull Dogs had a chance to force another tie with an inbound play in the final 10 seconds, but Franklin intercepted the pass and Flemmons had to foul to stop the clock. Wentzel then converted two free throws for a four-point margin to effectively seal the outcome.

                Columbus North prevailed in both sub-varsity games.

                In the JV game, freshman Reese Harmon scored 14 points to lead three players in double figures as the Bull Dogs captured a 73-49 triumph.
