Franklin 75, Garfield 60 — FINAL

FINAL — Franklin’s pressure defense was the story tonight, forcing 24 turnovers. The Garfield coach said Tony Wroten Jr. was playing at 75% due to an ankle injury. A great game finished a great day of basketball. The crowd was estimated at 8,000 and the quality of play was deserving of a college basketball venue.

Check out our coverage in Tuesday’s paper.

2:52 left in 4th — Siva drives the lane for a lay-up to extend the lead to 67-58. A lot of people are leaving now. Perhaps to get up early for a certain inauguration in the morning.

5:40 left in 4th — The crowd is bemoaning all the foul calls in the game, particularly the ones that have kept the stars off the floor. Franklin on a 4-0 run in the quarter, but now Wroten is in.

End of 3rd qtr — Wroten picked his fourth foul moments ago and both Siva and Wroten have four fouls now. Garfield got to within four at 57-53 with Siva on the bench. Should be interesting to see how fouls affect the end. Hopefully foul trouble doesn’t spoil this opportunity to watch some of the area’s best.

4:52 left in 3rd qtr — Siva picked up his fourth foul a while ago and will be on the bench for a while, it would seem. Wroten opened the quarter with a three-point play and Garfield chipped away a little. The Franklin lead is 49-42.

Halftime — Franklin scored the first basket of the second quarter to take the lead and never looked back. The Bulldogs pulled to within 26-23, but the Quakers responded with a 16-5 run. I’ll have more stats when they become available.

End of 1st qtr: What a great atmosphere! This placed is packed and loud to watch the two No. 1 ranked teams. Garfield leads 17-16 after one quarter. Tony Wroten hit a long, contested three to start the game and finished with 10 pts. Peyton Siva has seven to lead the Quakers.
