ALEXANDRIA, IN – Alexandria’s boy’s basketball team did a nice job of getting by the press Friday night against No. 5 Frankton, but the Tigers struggled to get shots to fall as they lost to the Eagles 59-39 in CIC action.
“It’s a good achievement, and it was a goal of ours and we are excited,” said Frankton Coach Brent Brobston. The win also allowed the Eagles to take possession of the CIC traveling trophy known as The Silver Horseshoe. “This is a big win for us on the road against a conference team. (Alexandria) did a good job of being physical.”
Frankton did a very nice job in the first quarter of pushing the ball up the floor and getting the shots they wanted as the Eagles jumped on top of the Tigers 23-9. Aaron Korn and Jordan Reeves each scored seven points for the visitors during that opening quarter.
Alexandria Head Coach then challenged his team. “I told them, ‘Let’s go out and win a quarter,’ and I believe we did that in the second period,” he said. “ We battled hard in that second quarter, and outscored them 7-4. To hold a team like that to four points in a quarter is something. That’s one of the top three or four teams in the state in our class.”
