Conference opponents top Grizzlies men, women

Franklin College fought back from a 12-point second-half deficit to close to within two points with 1½ minutes left but couldn’t overtake visiting Transylvania, which won 59-53 in a key Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference women’s basketball battle in the Spurlock Center gym Wednesday night.

The decision not only halted the Grizzlies’ eight-game winning streak but dropped them two games behind the Pioneers in the HCAC standings.

Transylvania improved to 10-1 in the HCAC and 14-4 overall, while Franklin dropped into a second-place tie with Defiance at 8-3 and also moved to 14-4 in all contests.
