1. Their bigs can stretch the floor - Center D'Bryant Coraprez, a 6-foot-7 junior, doesn't exactly resemble a gazelle running up and down the floor. But around the basket, he has some quick reflexes, some solid footwork and a soft touch. He can also stretch the defense with his perimeter game; in one sequence against KP, Coraprez swung to the top of the key off a screen and kissed the glass for a three-pointer. The Bears' other 6-foot-7 big, senior Dakari Hannahwornum, is not as polished but presents similar poise.Boh Knows: We've mentioned this time and again, but part of what makes Franklin so consistent from year to year is how coach Dean O'Connor's flex offense is installed seemingly from fifth grade on up in the youth system, possibly lower. It seems like returning Hockomock All-Star point guard Sam Bohmiller was born to run this system, and this afternoon he picked up seemingly where he left off at the end of last season, when the Panthers made a surprise run to the D1 South semifinals.
2. They can run - The Bears were able to run up and down the court on Rockland, and that led to a series of open perimeter shots. In one series of events, junior guard Dean Lee hit back-to-back-to-back treys -- all from the same spot, from the corner along the right baseline. Head coach Johnny Williams also likes junior C.J. Askew, who hit a couple of three's as well.
