Duncanville Holds On To Beat Dallas Madison 53-51

Filed under: DISD,Sports |

The Panthers took on Dallas Madison in the last game on Friday evening of the Thanksgiving Hoopfest showcase at the Sandra Meadows Arena. The Trojans of Madison (11-3A) gave Duncanville a scare as Madison lead until the closing seconds of the first half when the Panthers were able to take a 30-29 lead into the locker room.

Madison had a height advantage the majority of the game as they typically had at least two players over 6’5” on the court at all times, with five players on the roster that were taller than 6’5”.

Leading the way for the Panthers was Senior Jarami Grace with 22 points, followed by Senior Renard Green, and Junior Omar Sherman with 8 points each. Grace and Sherman led the Panthers with 7 rebounds each.

Even with Madison having a height advantage, the Panthers were able to pull down 11 more rebounds than the Trojans.

The Panthers were able to take a ten-point lead with 2:30 remaining in the game, but the Trojans were able to close the game to 53-51 with only 34.31 seconds remaining in regulation.

Duncanville was able to slow the game down and control the ball until the final buzzer sounded, and end the night with a 53-51 victory.

Duncanville next takes on Prestonwood Christian Plano on Saturday night at 8:30PM to close out the showcase.
