SALT LAKE CITY —- Lone Peak isn’t all about college-bound stars TJ Haws and Frank Jackson — far from it. Throughout the year the team has received key contributions, and perhaps most notably from guard Zach Frampton, who may also he himself playing at the college level in the near future.
“He’s a college player somewhere,” said Lone Peak coach Quincy Lewis following Lone Peak’s 87-60 win over Syracuse. “He’s so active, and he’s just exceptional. He does a little bit of everything for you and is one of those kids that makes you win.”
Frampton did a lot of everything in his team’s first round win Monday. The senior guard filled up the stat sheet — just missing a triple double with 15 points, nine assists and 12 rebounds in the game.
While Haws and Jackson both struggled finding their scoring groove early, Frampton led the team out with 10 first quarter points. When Haws and Jackson went off in the second half, he faded to the background in the scoring ledger while typically doing those key things that don’t necessarily show up on the stat sheet.
“My role is to just lead the team,” Frampton said. “I’ve been here for a couple of years now, and I’m now the captain, so my role is to lead the team. All that matters is getting that (win)”
