Franklin College men fall in conference game

It wasn’t so much a height advantage that did the trick, it was Hanover College’s ability to get inside the paint on its way to an 80-65 win against the Franklin College men’s basketball team Thursday night.

The visiting Panthers grabbed their first lead in the game with 1 second remaining in the half on a reverse layup by junior Desmond Marks after trailing by as many as 11 points.

The Grizzlies, who entered the game with a Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference record of 6-6, got off to a fast start on the shooting of sophomore point guard Trae Washington, who scored nine of his game-high 21 points in the first half.
