After slow start, second-ranked Frankton slams Shenandoah

FRANKTON — For one quarter, it looked like the Frankton boys basketball team would have a tough time getting past scrappy Shenandoah. After the conclusion of the final three Monday night, it was clear why the Eagles are now ranked No. 2 in Class 2A.

That first quarter ended with the score 22-15, then the Eagles out scored the Raiders 61-14, en route to a dominating 83-29 win to remain undefeated.

“The first quarter our rotations weren’t as good,” Frankton coach Brent Brobston said. “We got out of rotation, out of sync in the first quarter.”

Brobston said some of the players that he would typically call on to spell the starters in various points in the first quarter were not available after seeing more than their normal minutes during the junior varsity contest.

The 54-point victory was the largest winning margin for the Eagles, who had defeated their opponents by an average of 28.6 points, which was sixth best in the state coming in.

The Eagles slowly pulled away to open the second quarter then with 3:27 remaining they went on a 14-2 run to take control.

“The second quarter we started to play a lot better,” Brobston said. “Obviously the second, third and fourth quarters our offensive execution was much better.”

While Aaron Korn is seemingly the focal point of the Eagle offense, the ball was spread around to allow 11 of the 12 players on the varsity roster to log points.

“Our team is very unselfish,” Brobston said. “That is the good thing about us, we play as a team — we play together.”

Korn led all scorers with 21 points on 7-of-14 shooting, including 2-of-5 from beyond the arc. With the game in hand, Brobston elected to have the 6-foot-5 senior sit for much of the fourth quarter.

Junior Nick Wright added 18 points for the Eagles, nearly 10 points higher than his season average of 8.7.
