Franklin 45, G-MU 43
COPES CORNERS – Franklin freshman Jordan Beers may one day challenge the Section IV scoring record, and she added 31 points to her quickly-building career total in Tuesday’s win at G-MU.
Beers’ one-handed scoop shot on the baseline put her club up 45-41 with 22 seconds left, and those points were the margin of victory.
“We knew this was going to be a tough one especially when the other team has a player like (Beers),” said G-MU coach Jim Johnson, who was denied a 400th career victory – for now – with the defeat.
The Raiders (9-3) had not lost a game in seven weeks and brought a nine-game winning streak and unblemished league mark into the contest. “No matter what anybody says, and I don’t mean this to sound disrespectful to their team, but we got beat by one player tonight,” Johnson said. “She did a great job, and she beat us when we were playing well. We had people with her all of the time, she just made some unbelievable shots. What do you do with that? You tip your hat and hope to get them the next time.”
