Senior power forward Justin Tucker scored a game-high 26 points and ripped down ten rebounds to lead Men's Basketball to a 65-51 victory over Lake Mary in their final preseason tuneup. Tucker scored nine of DP's 12 points in the first quarter but Lake Mary utlized a 9-0 run midway through the period to take a 14-12 lead. The Panthers spread the ball around consistently in the second quarter and freshman Jordan Poventud's steal and coast-to-coast layup punctuated a 9-3 run to close out the half up 29-20. In the third, DP pulled away quickly. Daniel Love knocked down a three, Poventud drained another and Justin Tucker skied above the rim to lay one in on the back end of a 13-0 run as the lead swelled to 47-30. In the fourth, Tucker added six more to his total and sophomore Jarrell Franklin knocked down a three from the left corner for the 65-51 final. Daniel Love finished with 12 points and six rebounds, Isayas Aris registered six points and seven rebounds while Jordan Poventud closed out with five points and six rebounds. The Panthers get a little break from competition until they open up their regular season November 25th against Poinciana at Apopka.
