The Grizzlies, who trailed by as many as

After the break, Franklin (7-3) led by eight

points on four occasions before the Tigers

whittled the deficit to three at 37-34 with 9:38

remaining. Franklin outscored Wittenberg

12-3 the rest of the way.

Franklin College sophomore forward

Nichole Thompson, a Greenwood Community

High School graduate, hit 8 of 13 shots

to lead all scorers with 17 points off the

bench.

Junior forward Krista Schott added nine

points, seven rebounds, five assists and three
