|The Panthers got the revenge they were looking for after loosing to Saugatuck earlier this season. The first time around the Panthers struggled to hit the open shots, but the high shooting percentage they had the last few weeks carried over into tonight. Bradley Alden and Matt Winter continued the offense dominance they have shown the last few weeks. Alden led all scorers with 24, finished the season with an average of 14 per game. Winter's sharp shooting from beyond the arc was on display again, he added two more for a total of 23 in the last 9 games. During that stretch he shot 23/35.
While Bradley and Matt took care of the scoring the second group once again provided the lock down defense in their 1-3-1 half court trap and 3-2 zone. The second group surge was led by the quick and physical defense of Blake Kiekenapp, Brandin Legon, Ian Winkler and Alex Lefor.
The Panthers finished the season 9-0 in division play, 13-2 for conference play and 16-2 overall. The 16 wins matches the JV high over the last 23 years and the win percentage of 88% is the highest in 22 plus years.
Thank you all for your support this season!!!
