Park Tudor repeats as 2A champs with big win over Frankton

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Park Tudor won its second consecutive class 2A state championship Saturday with a 73-46 victory over Frankton that tied the state record for the largest margin of victory in the class.

Frankton was pesky in the first quarter, trading shots with the Panthers, but trailed 13-7 heading into the second quarter.

Park Tudor’s athleticism and size proved to be too much, opening the second quarter with an 8-1 run to make it 23-8, and never looked back.

The Eagles only had four baskets inside the arc by the end of the third quarter, going 12 for 49 (24.5 percent) from the floor and 6 for 29 (20.7 percent) with 3-pointers.

Park Tudor senior Bryce Moore scored 31 points and added six rebounds and six assists, and fellow senior Evan Frank had 11 points and 11 rebounds.

It’s Park Tudor’s third state title in five years and fifth state finals appearance since 2010.
