Fumigate the Bumblebees

Franklin Lions (6-2) vs. Little River Academy Bumblebees on Friday, February 1, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. in Franklin.

The Franklin Lions basketball team has put that early season slide behind them and have roared to five consecutive wins in district play to move their overall record in district to 6-2 and puts them solidly in 2nd place in the race behind leader Little River Academy at 8-0. Coach Russ has gotten some excellent play at times from a number of individual players during the streak. RaShawn Green, Datron Dixon, Jace Leamon, Marcus Wade, James Little and the Spiller brothers Seth and Ethan have all had big moments. As a team, the Lions are playing some of their best basketball of the season at the right time.

Tuesday, the Lions held off a group of stubborn Cameron Yoemen to win 42-38. It was a typical Lions game with the two teams trading baskets and neither team ever gaining a significant advantage. The game was big for the Lions and provides them with the necessary momentum to earn a playoff berth.
