Panola College men's basketball


The Panola College men’s basketball team lost their first
conference game here Saturday afternoon to San Jacinto College, 72-60.
After the loss, Panola drops their record to 8-4 and 1-1 in conference
play. “I thought we played a tremendous defensive game.” Said head coach
Grant McMillan. “We just didn’t get any timely shots to go down, or really
a rhythm at all offensively.” He added.
After a back and fourth start, San Jac went on an offensive outburst to
give them an 11 point lead midway through the first half. Panola came back
to tie the ball game at 29 before San Jac went on an 8-3 run to take the
halftime lead, 37-32. San Jacinto maintained their lead most of the second
half. With 3:00 minutes remaining, Panola found themselves down 66-60 but
failed to convert the rest of the game.
Panola was led by Chan Williams-Bey who scored 14 points off the bench.
Devyn Wilson also came off the bench and netted 12 points. Eric McGill and
Tope Arikawe scored 11 and 10 points, respectfully. Marlon Taylor chased
down eight rebounds. As a team, Panola was ice cold from the field shooting
36 percent from the field.
Panola will finish out the first semester when they head to Beeville to
take on Coastal Bend next Saturday, December 10th. Tip-off is set for 4:00
