Seven consecutive losses by an average of 21 points isn’t the kind of history the boys basketball program at Franklin Community High School takes pride in.

Franklin Central has been the sharpest of
thorns in the side of Franklin for some time now. The Cubs’ most recent conquest of the Flashes dates back to March 2006 and a 72-62 victory at the Southport Sectional.
That matchup, like the one this evening at Center Grove, occurred in the semifinal round.
