Inside-outside1-2 punch sparks FRA boys
By HAROLD HUGGINS
A big-time 1-2 punch at Franklin Road Academy has led to a knockout punch of most of its foes this season.
In giant 6-7, 230-pound senior post Rob Marberry and diminutive 6-0, 165 sophomore guard Kenny Cooper, the Panthers have one of the best inside-outside duos in Nashville basketball. Apart, they are very good players. Together, the Mutt and Jeff twosome are providing major double trouble for defenses.
Friday was another case in point. In a 71-36 DII home romp over DII foe Davidson Academy, Marberry poured in 25 points with 10 rebounds, while Cooper rattled in 18 points (16 the first half) and seven assists, most of them dished out to Marberry.
“We complement each other,” Marberry, a Western Kentucky signee, said after the game. “Teams can’t focus too much on either of us, because the other guy will take advantage of it.”
