Basketball: Franklin update

I happened to be on the same flight home from Phoenix tonight with the Cal team and was witness to a priceless moment.

Just before the flight attendants closed the door, one of them got on the P.A. and said, “Ladies and gentlemen, we’re missing a Gary Franklin.”

The entire Cal team roared with laughter.

The San Diego Union-Tribune is reporting that Franklin — who announced Wednesday he was leaving Cal after 13 games — has a working list of teams he is considering, including San Diego State.

Others, according to the newspaper, are UNLV, New Mexico, Texas A&M, Georgetown, UTEP and San Jose State.

    Having your leading shot-taker quit the team and then playing your best basketball of the season: Priceless.

    …I’m sure more intelligent people can come up with better versions…

  3. Franklin to SDSU, gotta investigate if Fisher has been up to old tricks.
