Despite missing star junior Micah Thomas, the Putnam City North Panthers went on the road and knocked off rival Putnam City West 65-61. The Panthers snapped the Patriots’ 12 game-winning streak. Blake Owens led all scorers with 21 points. He got out to a fast start with 10 points in the first quarter. UTSA signee Adokiye Ayaye was right behind Owens with 20 points, with balanced scoring throughout the night. The Panthers jumped out to a 19-9 lead after one quarter. However, the two rivals were tied at 47 going into the final frame. The Panthers would make enough shots down the stretch to get the win.
