It took three-and-a-half quarters for the Franklin Community High School girls basketball team to figure out how to break host Perry Meridian’s full-court press Thursday night.
Unfortunately for the Grizzly Cubs, by that time the deficit was too much to overcome.
In all, the Falcons (5-8) forced 33 turnovers in a 67-48 victory against the Cubs (6-9).
“Turnovers have plagued this team all year, and they were obviously a big problem tonight,” Franklin coach Walt Raines said. “We have young guards, and we’re going through some growing pains, but they’ll learn.”
From a swarming press to multiple traps, the Falcons aggressively applied ball pressure throughout the entire game, taking advantage of Franklin’s youth and their own speed.
