In the quarterfinal round of the Men's Basketball Regional Tournament host and District Champion Tampa Alonso may have expected or hoped for an easier opponent but Dr. Phillips shook off some first quarter rust and ran the host Ravens out of their own gym in a 68-45 victory. Down 13-11 in the opening quarter, DP came out on fire in the second quarter and never let up on offense or defense the rest of the way. After surging ahead for a 31-24 lead at the half, the DP defense clamped down and held Alonso to just eight points in the third quarter, extending the lead to 17 points heading into the fourth. Daniel Love led four in double figures, finishing with 19 points, five rebounds and five steals. Dante Love added 13 points and a career-high 12 assists; Esdras Jean and Devon Buckhanon chipped in with 13 and 12 points, respectively. Sophomore Abdoulaye Thiam, who had been sidelined with an injury for a few weeks, buried back-to-back threes in the second quarter to give the Panthers (19-8) the lead for good. DP will come back to Orlando and get yet one more crack at Oak Ridge Tuesday night at 7:00 pm in the Sweet Sixteen.
