By the half the Panthers had stretched the lead out to 8 points and took a 30-22 lead into the locker room.

In the third quarter the Gophers battled back to within one point with 3:05 remaining in the quarter, but put in 6 straight points to stretch the lead back out to 7 points when Grace emphasized the Panthers’ prowess with an emphatic slam to take the score to 40-33 with 1:44 remaining in the quarter. Grace also drained a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give the Panthers a 45-36 lead.

In the fourth, the Gophers never got closer than 7 points as the Panthers went 9 of 13 from the line as the Gophers tried to force the Panthers to give the game away at the charity stripe. But, the Panthers still outscored the Gophers 17-13 in the fourth to defeat Grand Prairie 62-49.

Duncanville travels to Mansfield to take on the 11-7 Tigers on Tuesday, and return home next Friday to take on the  20-1 DeSoto Eagles.
