Walt Raines would’ve liked to have seen more attacking and more aggressiveness in the first half. So the veteran Franklin girls basketball coach talked to the players at halftime about coming out and starting over.
“Just go out and play hard for the final 16 minutes,” Raines said. “And the kids did that.”
In the second half, the Grizzly Cubs forced 13 turnovers and played to a 27-all tie. But they couldn’t get a run going to counter Franklin Central’s 20-point halftime lead.
