Boys state basketball: Franklin 78, Timberline 55

TACOMA – Franklin used a big second half to run by Timberline 78-55 on Thursday in the Class 3A state quarterfinals.

The Quakers led by just five at halftime – and trailed in the second quarter – but blew the game open in the third quarter. The Quakers used a 20-7 run in the third quarter to build an 18-point lead, and that would only grow.

Eugene Aritson, Franklin’s 6-foot-8 center, scored 23 points and grabbed eight rebounds for the Quakers while Patrick Ball, the team’s leading scorer, added 16 points and nine rebounds.

Franklin has been a hard-to-figure-out team this season, but the Quakers played a crisp second half against Stanwood in regionals on Saturday and did so again against Timberline.

Donaven Dorsey, a 6-foot-6 junior receiving Division-I interest for Timberline, scored 30 points, including 18 in the first half. He made 12 of his 24 shots.
