Dunbar stops FHS

By SUSAN RIDDELL State Journal Sports Writer Published:

The Frankfort High Panthers didn't do the two things coach Scott Chalk wanted them to do Saturday, hosting Dunbar on Alumni and F.D. Wilkinson scholarship night.

The result was a 70-60 loss to the Bulldogs, who are now just 11-13.

Dunbar outrebounded the Panthers 31-16 and kept Frankfort from getting many second chances on the offensive glass. Of Frankfort's 16 rebounds, only five were on the offensive end.

"That was the number one thing we had to take care of and we didn't do it," Chalk said of the rebounding effort.

"The second thing was we had to stop their penetration and we didn't do that, either," Chalk added. "They took it to the basket all night long."

Dunbar opened the game with good shooting from the perimeter, leading 11-6 after two three-pointers from Jason Azubuike, younger brother of UK freshman Kelenna Azubuike.

By the end of the first period, the Bulldogs were still only leading 15-12. The lead grew to eight points, 28-20, at the half.

The Panthers' best play came in the third quarter. Their first five baskets all came off assists.
