1/22/2014 11:19:00 PM

It took a bit more than a half for them to get the momentum going  but when they did, Women's Basketball looked like a team ready for another long playoff run. Fifth-ranked DP (17-7) utilized a 22-6 fourth quarter margin to defeat 15th-ranked Bishop Moore, 57-30. The visiting Hornets (18-5) kept the game close in the first half, trailing 14-13 after the first quarter, but a deep three-pointer by Katrina Reeves for a 19-13 lead with 3:44 to go in the half ignited the DP surge that continued through the final buzzer. The Panthers held Bishop Moore scoreless in the second quarter but led by just eight at the half, 21-13, before the Hornets made a third quarter push to cut the deficit to three, 25-22. But Reeves came up big again with back to back three pointers to push the lead back to seven, 31-24 with 2:03 left in the period. I'munique Green's put-back followed by a steal and layup by Tiffany Tolbert closed out the quarter with DP on a 10-2 run. The fourth quarter belonged to the Panthers as Jade Cheek opened up with consecutive threes and a steal / layup to push the DP lead to 43-28 with 4:46 left. Katrina Reeves buried another trey for a 20-point lead (48-28) and what was a close game erupted into a blowout. Jade Cheek finished with 17 points, I'munique Green had a strong night with 15 points and exceptional hustle end to end and Katrina Reeves closed out with 14 points and clutch rebounding. Six seniors were honored before tipoff on their final regular season home game: Cheek, Reeves, Green, Malia Harrison, Ionna McKenzie and Matea Britvar, who was introduced as starter, though still recovering from knee surgery. DP will head up to Montverde Academy Saturday for a 2:00 pm tipoff in their final tune-up before the District Tournament begins next Wednesday at home vs. Cypress Creek.
