RaShawn Powell poured in 28 points and Tyriefe Beard chipped in 12 points and eight rebounds to lead Men's Basketball to a 61-50 comeback victory over First Academy. DP (14-4) found themselves down six after the first quarter, 15-9, but righted the ship in the second. Jerard Pierre Louis cut the deficit in half, 16-13, with a layup and Powell tied the game at 20-20 with a pair of free throws with just over a minute left in the half. In the third quarter, DP turned up the defensive pressure and it paid off as the Panthers outscored the Royals, 21-8. Powell's cross over dribble and 12-foot jumper triggered a 7-0 run that included a deep three by David Stephen as well as a steal and thundering dunk by Tyriefe Beard with 1:20 to go. DP continued to pour it on into the fourth quarter as an 18-foot jumper by RaShawn Powell capped a 17-2 Panther run for a 47-32 lead and they never looked back. Jerard Pierre Louis finished with nine points but was even stronger defensively on the glass with 14 rebounds and took four charges in the paint. Dr. Phillips will now focus on their critical District matchup at Boone next Thursday.
