Panthers Defeat Volunteers at Thanksgiving Hoopfest

Filed under: DISD,Sports |

The Panther Varsity Basketball team took on Arlington Bowie in the Thanksgiving Hoopfest on Saturday, November 26.

The Panthers lost the opening tip, but that’s about all they lost in the first period. Freshman guard Matthew McQuaid found his spot, just about five feet past the 3-point arc and dropped two for six points. Junior guard Jerami Grace also found his stride and dropped in six points to help the Panthers get off to a 21-12 lead at the end of the first quarter.

In the second quarter, Bowie played them a little closer and managed to make up two points. Jeremy Senglin scored eight of his 27 points in the second for Bowie. McQuaid continued his 3-point prowess by dropping in two more. But, the Volunteers closed to within seven of the Panthers 38-31.

In the third Duncanville got those two points back with the help of Alfred Peterson, 6’3” senior forward. Peterson scored six points and was dominant under the boards. Peterson totaled eight rebounds for the game.

In the fourth period, Bowie really stepped up the pace of the game and outscored the Panthers 25-19 to make it a close game. Senglin added three 3-pointers and two free throws in the period. Senglin hit seven 3-pointers for the game to lead all scorers with 27 points. McQuaid was able to hit one more from beyond the arc to give him five for the game. McQuaid also was able to ice the game at the free throw line in the closing seconds.

Another outstanding performer in the paint was 6’8” sophomore forward Omar Sherman with two rebounds and three blocked shots.

The Panthers’ next game will be at Mesquite High School on November 29 at 6pm and then they will be participating in the MISD Spring Creek Tournament in Mansfield on December 1-3.
