DIPRIMIO: Armaan Franklin Seizes Freshman Opportunity

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- It won't last, of course, this mind-boggling assist-to-turnover ratio Indiana freshman guard Armaan Franklin has unleashed upon the college basketball world.

Eight assists and no turnovers in a college debut is freaky good.

Think of all the great guards in Hoosier history – Isiah Thomas, Eric Gordon, Yogi Ferrell, Steve Alford and more – who have never done it.

Yes, it's a tiny sample -- IU's win over Western Illinois on Tuesday night -- in what will be a long season. Sure, it came against an opponent that will remind no one of, say, Kentucky.
