Hot Dogs down Warriors

FRANKFORT — For the third consecutive game, the Frankfort Hot Dogs boys’ basketball team found its groove in the second half.

Friday night’s victim was Danville, as the Hot Dogs scored 48 points in the final 16 minutes to outlast the Warriors, 73-64, in a Sagamore Athletic Conference game.

Coming into the game, Danville was only allowing 49.0 points per game. The 73 points scored by Frankfort were a season-high for a Warriors opponent.

“They beat us on some tough stuff – rebounding and getting to the bucket. Things that we were doing in the first half, we didn’t do on the defensive end in the second half,” Danville coach Brian Barber said. “They got several offensive rebounds, just tough stuff that isn’t the glamour stuff but they beat us to it (Friday).

“I don’t think it was anything offensively in the second half. You give up (48) points … we just didn’t step up and get the job done.”

In the previous two second halves, Frankfort (12-4, 3-1 SAC) scored 40 against Crawfordsville and 42 against West Lafayette – both victories.

“We go in (at halftime), we refocus and we know where we’ve made our mistakes. We’ve been able to make adjustments and the kids respond to those,” Frankfort coach Tom Weeks said.

A majority of Frankfort’s 16 made baskets in the second half came inside the paint. The Hot Dogs also got to the free-throw line 21 times, converting 16 of those.

“We were 0 of 6 first half from three,” Weeks said. “You talk about smash-mouth football, we’re smash-mouth basketball. We couldn’t get over the hump in the first half because we were hurting ourselves, fouling and putting them on the line instead of rebounding the basketball.”

Friday night’s scoring came in part to the Hot Dogs’ ability to break Danville’s zone. The Warriors’ 2-3 zone stifled Frankfort for the first half, forcing seven turnovers and 8 of 25 shooting from the field (3 of 15 in the first quarter).
