Columbus North edges Franklin 49-48 in boys basketball

February 10, 2013
Columbus North High School



    FRANKLIN, Ind. -- Senior Sawyer Glick fueled a big fourth-quarter comeback with three 3-pointers Saturday (Feb. 9), helping the Class 4A No. 2 Columbus North boys basketball team to a 49-48 victory at Franklin.
    Glick finished with a game-high 14 points and sophomore Josh Speidel added 12 points and seven rebounds for the Bull Dogs, who improved to 19-1 and could move up to No. 1 in the next rankings following a loss Thursday (Feb. 7) by current No. 1 Carmel.
    Juniors Evan Henry and Elliott Welmer each contributed seven points for CN, while senior Clint Cunningham tossed in five points.
    Senior Keenan Wood paced the Grizzly Cubs (12-5) with 12 points. Junior Nick King had 11 points for the hosts.
    Franklin surged to a 38-24 lead midway through the third quarter, but Columbus North found a way to rally for a game-closing 25-10 run. Glick was key to the surge, while accurate second-half shooting (10-of-18 from the floor, including 5-of-10 from long range) was instrumental.
    The Bull Dogs cut their deficit to just 40-33 at the third stop, then used a 16-8 advantage over the final eight minutes to pull out the decision.
    Columbus North also won the JV game 51-36. Sophomores Vince Grana and Trent Larson each scored 11 points for the Bull Dogs, while junior Nick Littrell added 10 points. Seth Burkhart topped Franklin with 12 points.
    Columbus North returns to action on Friday when it hosts Bloomington North for its Senior Night. The JV game begins at 6 p.m., and the varsity will follow about 7:30 p.m. Eight CN seniors will be recognized at the game, including Glick, Cunningham, Tori Jackson, Paul Salee, Garrett Larson, Connor Oren, Chase Francoeur and Gabe Hilt.
