Franklin wins 32-team Quaker Summer Slam

Three months ago, Franklin said goodbye to a starting five of seniors after a state championship run in boys basketball. Three of those seniors were Division I prospects, including Peyton Siva, a McDonald’s All-American at point guard.

So no, Franklin was not the favored team to make it through its summer tournament, the 32-team Quaker Summer Slam. But with five wins in three nights, capped by a 90-83 victory against Jefferson of Oregon, Franklin won the tournament for the second straight year.

To get there, Franklin beat Garfield (wihtout Tony Wroten) 79-59 in the quarterfinals and Kentwood (with Josh Smith) 68-62 in the semifinals. Then the Quakers beat Jefferson, which features top forward prospect Terrence Jones (who has an offer from Washington, among many) and tournament MVP Antwan Hosely.

Jefferson had beaten Rainier Beach in semifinals and defending 4A Federal Way in the quarters.
