SDSU’s Jamaal Franklin Scores 58 In China

Former San Diego State star Jamaal Franklin exploded for 58 points for the Sichuan Blue Whales in a 118-111 loss to the Jilin Tigers in the Chinese Basketball Association.

 

The 6-5 shooting guard drilled 6 threes, while shooting a blistering 73 percent (8-of-11) from two-point range and sinking 24-of-29 from the line.

 

Franklin also had 15 rebounds, 9 assists, 4 steals, and a whopping 7 blocks in the game.

 

For his spectacular performance, Franklin was named the Asia-basket.com Player of the Week.

 

For Jilin, Von Wafer (Florida St.) had 44 points and 8 rebounds in the victory.

 

But the star of the game was Franklin, who is eighth in the CBA in scoring and fifth in blocks this season, averaging 31.4 points, 9.6 boards, and 1.7 rejections for Sichuan.

 

A college star at San Diego State, Franklin led the team in scoring (17.0), rebounding (9.5), assists (3.3) and steals (1.6) in 2012-13, becoming the only Division I player in America to top his squad in all four categories that season.

 

A two-time Associated Press All-American, Franklin was named to the Mountain West first-team twice and led the Aztecs to the 2013 NCAA tournament.

 

The Memphis Grizzlies picked Franklin in the second round (41st overall) in the 2013 draft.

 

In the NBA, Franklin played parts of two seasons with the Grizzlies and Nuggets.
