12/1/2013 12:13:00 PM

Jonathan Laurent registered his fifth consecutive double-double with 36 points and 17 rebounds as Men's Basketball fought off a very talented Osceola team, 82-77, for their fifth consecutive victory to open the season. DP (5-0) also got major contributions from freshman Chaundee Brown (14 points, eight rebounds), junior David Stephen (13 points, five assists), senior Ira Warren (nine points) and junior Wilkins Desir, who finished the night with seven points, two assists, two steals as well as the game-sealing free throws in the final seconds. The Panthers jumped out to a 22-18 lead after one quarter and held serve at the half, 44-41, in a fast-paced game. Osceola charged back on DP midway through the third quarter to take a six-point lead at one point, but DP clawed their way back with a seven-point edge in the fourth for the victory. A strong week looms ahead for the Panthers as they host West Orange Wednesday night and travel down south to take on state power Miami High Saturday night!
