Francis battles May, Williams in Orlando

Torin Francis


Tar Heel recruit Torin Francis faced off against the nation's best on Friday at the Super Showcase in Orlando, Fla.

Francis' BABC squad beat Sean May's Bloomington Red in the quarterfinals and Shelden Williams' Athlete's First in the semifinals.

He played May to a standoff, each of them unofficially scoring about 16 points and 10 rebounds -- but it was the play of the BABC guards that enabled the 16-point win.

Our unofficial tally for Francis against Athlete's First was 14 points and 12 boards. Williams had 12 points and 15 rebounds. Francis hit some key late shots, as BABC won 87-84.

BABC plays Team Texas in the Super Showcase championship game on Saturday - a rematch of the Peach Jam finale, won by Team Texas on a last second shot.
