On Monday the varsity girl’s basketball team kept their season alive by defeating Warren Woods Tower 56-31. They scored immediately after tip-off and never looked back. The girls played their best ball when the pressure seemed at its highest. Entering the fourth quarter, in the biggest game of their season thus far, the girls led 33-20. The girls elevated their play in the final quarter and looked in sync. Excellent defense led to multiple fast break attempts, which resulted in easy points. The rest was history.

The girls were led offensively by Seniors Chantae’ Parker and Nija Collier, and Sophomore DeBraya Edwards. Both Collier, 12 points and 10 rebounds, and Edwards, 18 points and 11 rebounds,  amassed a double double, while Parker filled up the stat sheet with 13 points, 7 assists, and 5 rebounds. Defensively, sophomore, Che’Paris Mobely and senior, Rayven Newberry hustled all game and helped shut down the Titans.

Tonight they take on MAC Red Grosse Pointe North Norsemen in the district semi-finals at Roseville at 7pm. With the season on the line, will the Lady Panthers find a way to complete the upset and keep their hopes alive?
