Juniors Tiffany Tolbert and Kyara McClendon scored 15 points each to lead Women’s Basketball to a 55-38 victory over visiting Cypress Creek last night in the House of Payne. DP (2-5) jumped out to a 7-0 lead when Tolbert turned a pair of steals into buckets and then fed Shayla Douglas for a three pointer from the left corner. Cypress Creek fought back as DP went cold from the floor in the second quarter, closing with an 8-0 run to cut DP’s lead to just two, 22-20, at the half. The Panthers came out of the locker room on a mission in the third, however, with a 10-0 run off a pair of threes from McClendon and Tolbert and a short bank from Nykkia Smith for a 32-20 lead at 6:05. McClendon finished with four threes on the night, including one that capped a 17-2 run into the fourth quarter that gave DP its then largest lead, 49-26, with 5:41 left in regulation. Johnnia Steele finished with nine points and Shayla Douglas closed out the night with six points.  JV Basketball saw Aundraya Duarte tally 19 points in a 46-19 thrashing of Cypress Creek as they picked up their first victory of the season (1-4). Both teams will host Evans tomorrow night.
