Korn star of show against Eastbrook

Frankton stays unbeaten with blowout at home

FRANKTON, Ind. — Eastbrook came into the Eagles Nest at Frankton High School and got a heavy dose of Aaron Korn as he racked up 31 points and 11 rebounds on the way to a 75-46 victory Friday.

The Eagles (4-0, 1-0 Central Indiana Conference) started the game by scoring the first nine points and never trailed.

Korn joined the 1,000-point club in his last game against Wes-Del and carried that momentum against Eastbrook (1-4, 0-1). He scored seven of his team’s 20 first-quarter points on 3-of-5 shooting from the floor.

Trevor Hughes got in on the first-quarter scoring barrage by connecting on all three of his shots from the field for six points, and Jordan Reeves provided the muscle under the basket by scoring four points and corralling five rebounds in the opening stanza.

Before the Panthers knew it, they had been doubled up 20-10 after one quarter of play.

Korn continued his onslaught in the second period. He hit all but one of his six shots from the field with one of those coming from beyond the arc for 11 points.

He said that there was definitely some leftover emotion from joining the 1,000-point club that carried over against Eastbrook.

“The emotions through the whole week, everybody congratulating me and everything, I was kind of looking forward to the next game,” he said. “All the crowd was great, the emotions (were) great, and it just kind of carried over.”

Korn said that being undefeated at this stage doesn’t mean anything unless the Eagles prove they are worthy of their record.

“We still have to prove ourselves this year,” he said. “We’re 4-0, but that’s nothing. You’ve still got to keep going.”

Eagles coach Brent Brobston sang the praises of Korn, but he also said this win means more because it was the start to the CIC season.

“I just think it means a lot tonight,” he said. “Obviously to start the conference tonight. I think that every game, to be honest with you, that they step on the court they just got to want to get after it — same thing night-after-night. But this was a big win because it was a conference game.”

Brobston credited Reeves for his presence under the basket, Nick Wright for his defense on Eastbrook’s Jacob Singer and Austin Compton for his transition offense.

He said his team is getting better each game, but he said they still aren’t at their best.

“I just think the whole theme of everything in high school basketball is competition and competing and competing at a higher level every night,” said Brobston. “We’re competing, and we’re getting better. There’s no doubt about that, but we still have a long ways to go.”

Frankton travels to Shenandoah tonight for the second of its back-to-back games this weekend.
