12/14/2017 10:49:00 PM

Junior Zoe Alexander finished with a game-high 20 points and racked up nine rebounds and five assists as Women's Basketball rolled over Olympia, 49-36. DP (6-3) trailed early in the first quarter but an 8-0 run highlighted by a three-point play by Alexander and a deep three-pointer from Courtney Afram-Gyening knotted the score at 10-10 heading into the second. After Olympia took a 14-10 lead, junior guard Truly Le drained a three to kickstart a 12-0 run and knocked down another three from the top of the key two minutes later. With time running down in the half, Zoe Alexander ripped down a defensive rebound and took it coast to coast to put the Panthers up 22-14 into the break. In the third quarter, DP extended its scoring run to 21-0 as Courtney Afram-Gyening drove in for a baseline layup, Zoe Alexander drove down the lane for two more and freshman Porchia Washngton picked up a steal at midcourt and took it in for two as the lead swelled to 31-14 with 3:35 left. Olympia snapped a 15-minute scoring drought but back-to-back threes from each corner from Afram-Gyening (15 points) gave DP its largest lead of the night (18) before heading into the fourth up 37-23. Junior Megan Lapeyrouse opened the final quarter with a three-pointer from the right arc, the team's sixth of the game, for a 40-25 lead and Olympia was forced to put the Panthers at the line for the rest of the way. With a 44-32 lead at the 2:00 mark, Zoe Alexander sank five of six free throw attempts down the stretch to ice game for good. JV Basketball (6-2) bounced back from a sloppy loss at Oak Ridge Tuesday with a thorough 63-32 victory over visiting Olympia. Nisa Costa led all scorers with 27 points while Taina Kong chipped in ten. Both teams will host Evans Monday night.
