The Panthers lost an early morning game against the North Myrtle Beach Chiefs to start off round three of the Panther Classic, proving the old adage true that it is tough to beat an opponent three times. The difference seemed to be in shooting from the charity stripe as the Panthers were 9 of 21 from the foul line, while the Chiefs bucketed 15 of 20.
