"We ran a good play," Franklin said after the game.. "My jump shot hadn't been falling so I had to get to the rim. I was going to try to draw a foul. Anthony Marshall stepped up and tried to take a charge but I just sidestepped and got a basket."
Even UNLV head coach Dave Rice had to tip his hat to Jamaal Franklin seizing the moment.
"I think the first thing is to give a lot of credit to Jamaal Franklin," Rice said. "That is a heck of a hard shot. We were just a little bit late on the exchange and he made a hard shot."
Very classy by coach Rice.
San Diego State is now 15-2 and 1-0 in the Mountain West
UNLV falls to 16-3 on the year, 0-1 in the MWC.
