(Atlantic) Former Atlantic Boys Basketball star Dalton Franken was a guest on KS95.7 FM's Atlantic Sports Saturday this past weekend. The freshman at Dordt College is averaging 16.0 points per game for the 15-1 defenders.
Franken leads the team in 3-point field goal percentage at 50%. He's gone 17-34 from long range. He's also getting to the free-throw line on a regular basis where he's made 51 out of 68 attempts (75%).
He says the main focus of the team is on defense and notes there are some practices where the starters never touch the ball. In addition to adjusting to the speed of the game, getting used to the new officiating rules in college basketball has been another big adjustment.
15-1 Dordt resumes their schedule after the break by taking on Concordia on Saturday.
