Korn, Eagles torch Muncie Central and record book

MUNCIE — Two teams headed in opposite directions met up Tuesday night as the Muncie Central Bearcats hosted the Frankton Eagles. Frankton, ranked No. 4 in the state in 2A, went into the game riding a six-game winning streak and had not lost since a Jan. 31 matchup with Elwood. Muncie Central, meanwhile, came in on a seven game losing streak and had not won since Jan. 31.

Frankton played without second leading scorer Austin Compton (illness) but made up for his absence with a fast start in a 83-54 win over the host Bearcats.

The Eagles’ fast start led to two records for senior guard Aaron Korn. Korn came in 19 points shy of breaking Kelsey Key’s all-time school scoring record and broke it in the second quarter as Frankton raced to a 17-2 lead in the first quarter. The Eagles extended their lead to 50-23 at the break. Korn was in a zone in the first half, scoring 23 of his 47 points in the half. Korn, who did not miss from the field, credited his teammates for getting him going. “My teammates were getting me good shots and got me in a rhythm early,” Korn said. “I was feeling it.”

Frankton got solid early support from junior guard Conner Bates, who started for Compton, and from Nick Wright, who had 10 first-half points. Korn stayed hot in the second half and as the game wound down, the coaching staff was aware of the single-game record. The Eagles led by 25 after three and were in full cruise control late in the fourth as Korn neared the record. After a missed free throw with 2:47 left, Korn had exactly 43 points.

On the next possession, Korn dribbled to the left baseline and hit a soft pull up jumper for points 44 and 45, tying Kevin Wright’s record from 1981. With 2:13 left, Korn was fouled and sank both free tosses for 47 points and the record. The large Frankton contingent stood and applauded as Korn left the game for good as Blaine Reed replaced him on the floor.
