(2019) SG Armaan Franklin to IU

Recommended Posts

Wasn’t Newman supposed to be the better shooter of the two? Seems like Armaan is making 4 or more threes every game. I was just watching some videos from his high school season and his jumper looks great. Is this a new development? 

Franklin also looks long and athletic. I think this kid is underrated.

Cathedral advances to the semis of the Bob Wettig Classic with a 73-55 win over Greensburg.  Franklin with 20 pts. on 9-15 FG; 0-3 on 3's; 2-4 FT; 5 reb; 1 asst; 3 stls; 1 TO.  They'll face the winner of Portage vs. Richmond at 1:00.

Why is officiating always an issue?  In the 1st Q, they called 14 fouls - 7 apiece, and put 2 players from each team on the bench with 2 fouls.  In the 2nd Q, they called 3 fouls, then back to 8 in the 3rd Q.  Franklin got a tech on a breakaway tomahawk slam that even the announcers had no clue as to why.  He didn't hang on the rim; didn't showboat but got T'd anyway.  He is a shot creator and handled the ball well on the dribble.

I was thinking the same thing. Everything I read on him was that he was really well rounded, but needed to develop his jumper. He looks very confident either off the dribble or pass shooting with real range. We're not seeing the misses in the highlight videos obviously, so I don't know what his efficiency is, but the shot looks legit. I'm a lot more excited about him after seeing video than I was when he committed

End of 3 at the Bob Wettig Classic with Cathedral leading Richmond 62-36, and pretty certain Armaan's done for this game.  With about 1:30 left in the 2nd Q, he made a drive to the bucket, stepped on an opponent's foot and apparently twisted an ankle.  Normal play, nothing dirty at all from the Richmond player but Armaan stayed down for awhile and they cut to a commercial.  When it resumed, the announcers commented that Armaan's mother had been ejected and escorted from the gym.  Really don't know what could have set her off.   Armaan started the 3rd Q and left the game for good midway through the quarter with Cathedral leading by 25 pts.  I had him with 17 pts. (and so did the announcers) on 7-13 FG; 2-2 on 3's; 1-1 FT; 3 reb; 1 stl.

Cathedral will face Zionsville at 7:30 for the tournament championship.

This was re-tweeted by RadioTroy.com that is providing the game stream and play-by-play.  Again, I saw nothing on the play where Armaan went down that was in any way deliberate or dirty and neither did the announcers.

I’m a mother first and a fan second. The refs let the game and a player get out of control. My comment to the ref was simply “This is on you”. definitely not worthy of an ejection! So I sat in “time out” in the hospitality room, where the Richmond staff was awesome!!!!

Not as bad as I thought- maybe row 30. ;)

I was sitting next to her at the CG game (sorry, USPS, better seats on the Cathedral side). She was cheering loudly and definitely into the game, but nothing untoward. Seriously, she's a lady, and she loves her kiddo. Refs get touchy sometimes. Reminds me of Pickerington North coming all the way from Columbus, and some ref on a power trip gave Jerome two techs for basically nothing. Just egos getting in the way.

Sorry if this offends anyone (I’m not) but some (not all, or most even) HS refs have the biggest egos on the planet for a job that’s pretty dang inconsequential. In Illinois especially. I had people get kicked out of my games back in the day for things that wouldn’t even draw attention in church. You’d think that whistle was the pen signing executive orders sometimes.
