The Panthers finished off their season with a 59-40 loss to Sumter. Sumter is a very talented team ranked as one of the best in the state. The Panthers struggled to score all night. They didn’t just struggle to score they didn’t even get many shots off. The Panthers were patient in looking for good shots, not forcing any tough shots but Sumter defense was very tough. Not only was Sumter’s defense tough but they were making a lot of 3’s as well, which made it even more difficult for the Panthers to match up. Ultimately Sumter’s size and athletic advantage proved too much and even though the Panthers kept it close in the 1st half, Sumter jumped out to a big lead early in the 2nd half. Panthers closed their season out at 7-13. It was a bit of a disappointing season for the Panthers they lost a couple games at the buzzer in region play, that if they ball simply bounced the other way the whole season could of changed. Scoring breakdown: T-Jay Brunson 12, Matt Beale 7, Derek Alston 6, Kevin Jackson 5, Jackson Weatherwax 5, PJ Robinson 2, Freddie Kane 2 and Kyle Watkins 1.
