Frankfort turns back Logansport

FRANKFORT — Logansport boys basketball coach Mark Victor knew his squad had quite a challenge on its hands for Friday night's visit to Frankfort.

"They have all the pieces to the puzzle," Victor said of the Hot Dogs prior to the matchup.

Frankfort was able to utilize a size advantage against Logan while at the same time taking advantage of some sloppy play by the Berries in the second half to pull away to a 69-50 win.

The Hot Dogs (4-1) looked like a Class 3A state contender in dealing the Berries (4-1) their first loss of the season.

Meanwhile, the Berries took a step backward during a sloppy second half of play.

A Jayson Higgins 3-pointer brought Logan to within 30-29 during the first possession of the second half, but after that it was all Frankfort, as the Hot Dogs outscored the Berries 39-21 the rest of the way.

Logan shot just 10 of 24 from the foul line for the game, and for the most part it was a general struggle offensively for the Berries in the second half.

"The second half was ugly," Victor said. "I thought we competed fairly well in the first half, but the second half it just snowballed and got away from us. We just got away from what we were trying to do as far as execution goes offensively."

Antonio Penny scored a game-high 25 points for the Berries despite shooting 7 of 18 from the foul line for the game. Jayson Higgins added 11 points but did not have the same kind of night shooting he enjoyed through the first four games of the season.

The Hot Dogs put four in double figures, led by 6-foot-7 Dakota Isgrigg's 19 points. Nathan Wissman and Christian Smith scored 14 apiece, and Brody Kirby had 12.

"I thought we had a little success in the first half playing a little zone against them, it contained them a little bit. But Isgrigg, he's a load inside," Victor said. "They're a good team. They've got a lot of weapons. You try to take away the inside game and they've got some guys who can play on the perimeter.

"They've got size, speed, quickness. They just manhandled us in the second half. It was just no contest as far as physicality goes. We were getting bumped and we weren't at least trying to compete and that sort of thing.

"It's kind of disheartening, but tomorrow's a new day and we get another opportunity to get back on the court."

Logan travels to Lafayette Jeff tonight.
