Panthers upset the top seed in the conference , the Central Bears, 66-60 at home Tuesday night. After a slow start Jaysus Jones came off the bench to spark the Panthers. Jones had 14 of his 20 points in the 2nd quarter to keep the Panthers in the game. After Central fell behind by 10 late in the 4th quarter, they made a furious comeback to cut the lead to 2. DJ Smith blocked a game tying lay up and Nick Post hit 2 free throws to put the Panthers up 4. Darius Gainer had a late layup to put the game away. The win puts the Panthers at 9-5. The Panthers are back at home Saturday for the Chris Nichols Classic vs River Ridge.
