Panthers Bow out of Tournament

North got an early lead thanks to Preston Jackson who scored 10 of his 23 points in the 1st quarter. But Miami Valley caught up and now North had to play catch up for the next 3 quarters.  North made a valiant run late in the 4th quarter - closing to within 3 points with about a minute left.  Dillon McCollough, who had only scored 7 points coming into the last quarter, sparked the rally. But with the Panthers pressing hard on defense, Miami Valley was able to get some easy baskets at the other end of the court and pull away for a 69 - 63 win.  Although they bowed out early, the Panthers can look back with pride on their 1st winning regular season record in many years.

Scoring: Dillon McCollough 16, Brian Stinson 8, Preston Jackson 23, Preston Lairson 4, Dylan Stinson 12.
