“The team has started to come together at this time in the season, been sharing the ball more and just playing overall team basketball.” says senior big man Allen Hyatt.
In the NKC game the Panthers came in with just as good defense and an exciting offense to back it up. In the two big wins the team’s younger players got a lot of playing time at the end of each game.
“I think all the underclass guys take it as a privilege and a learning experience when they get in the games,” mentioned Jacob Kline, an underclassman player who gets a lot of varsity minutes.
