Men's Basketball (13-7) may not have played anywhere close to their best game Tuesday night at Jones but with three seconds left, they found a way to win and that's all that mattered! With the score tied at 50-50 with eight seconds left in regulation, junior Jordan Poventud stole the inbounds pass from Jones and dished it to junior Dante Love for the game-winning layup as the Panthers escaped with a 52-50 victory. Love finished with 12 points and four assists on the night, as did his brother, Daniel Love. DP trailed by six points with a minute left, four with 30 seconds to go and two points with 11 seconds remaining. Jordan Poventud's layup tied the score before he stole the inbounds pass after a Jones timeout. Poventud added ten points, including five in the final minute. Esdras Jean chipped in with seven points and seven rebounds while Rakeem Perry closed out with six points from downtown. JV Basketball got 12 points from Justin Hunter and eight from Jason Barbabe as they improved to 7-5 with a 41-40 victory over Jones. Both teams will take on host Ocoee Friday night.
