Eagles win big on Senior Night

Cowan 76-36 victim for Frankton

FRANKTON, Ind. — It was no contest Tuesday night as the Frankton boys basketball team celebrated Senior Night with a 76-36 blowout win over the Cowan Blackhawks.

Trevor Hughes and Tanner Walters were the two seniors on display for the Eagles (14-5). Hughes went for 16 points and seven rebounds while Walters got two points and two boards.

Hughes knocked down the first bucket of the game, and the Blackhawks’ Kyler Burch scored to knot things at 2-2. Frankton would rattle off the next 26 points before the visitors scored again.

Frankton had a commanding 39-12 lead at the half, and they outscored the Blackhawks 37-24 in the final 16 minutes to walk away with a dominant win.

Eagles coach Brent Brobston felt like his squad set the tone in the first half, and he felt like it was a fitting way to send his seniors out.

“I thought we played hard in the first half, and accomplished what we needed to,” he said.  “It was a good Senior Night, and Trevor and Tanner played well. Everybody got some minutes. It turned out well for us.”

Brobston said he told his team before last night’s game that he didn’t want them to overlook Cowan (5-12), and he felt like his players followed his advice.

“The one thing in this type of game here is (that) you look ahead or look past your opponent, and I didn’t want to do that and I didn’t think we did that and I was really happy,” said the Eagles’ coach. “I thought we were very aggressive defensively and really stuck with what we wanted to do in the game plan tonight.”

Brobston was already looking to Friday’s game against Alexandria, which could secure the Eagles a Central Indiana Championship with a win.

“I think it’s actually probably good for us,” he said of the easy win. “We’ve got Senior Night then we look ahead to Friday here, and it’s Homecoming Friday, and we get the chance to win the conference — play for a conference championship.  It’ll be a great environment.

“I think Alex is a good team, I really do,” he added. “I think they’ve got some nice players. It’s going to be a tough test for us Friday, and we’ll be ready for it.”

Frankton was led by the 23 points of Aaron Korn. Hughes also led his team with seven rebounds.

Cowan was led by 13 points from Stewart Kerr, and Calvin Furniss led the team with five boards.
