Murphy led all scorers with 24 points and Truitt (11) and Quinten Conwill (10) also scored for the winners.
“Knowing what is at stake for us because we knew if we win our last two division games, we are county champs in Division II,” Iampieri said. “That’s a big deal because Franklin hasn’t been there anytime recently.”
If they beat Towson in the final division game (Feb. 19), they would play the Division I champion in the county title game. New Town currently leads Division I.
Murphy scored 15 points in the first half and the fact the Comets played a 2-3 zone the whole game wasn’t a concern.
“He just said go out there and play ball,” Murphy said.
That’s something the junior has been doing all season.
“He’s been the guy you can count on to get a double-double almost every game,” Iampieri said. “He’s leading our team in assists, he leads in points and he also leads in rebounds, so he is a triple threat for us.”
The closest the Comets got after their slow start was with 5:11 left in the first half, when senior co-captain Ben Hall (six points) made a free throw, cutting the lead to 20-14.
But, the Indians went on a 9-3 run to close the half as Murphy scored the first seven and Truitt added a pair of free throws.
