It’s round two for both Panorama Panther basketball teams tonight as they circle the wagons to take on Des Moines Christian high school for the second time this season, this time on the Panthers home hardwood.
In the never ending pursuit for perfection, the Lady Panther basketball team seeks their 14th win in the past 15 games dating back to last season, although the success hasn’t come against the Lady Lions often. While Panorama defeated Des Moines Christian in their first match up this season, the Lady Lions have taken the prior three straight games including the 2014-2015 post season match up. The Lady Lions have matched the Lady Panthers as of the last five straight games winniers of five in a row being an efficient shooting team as they do so averaging around 64% from the floor. The Lady Lions top scorer heading into tonight is Mia Rosner averaging just over 13 points per game.
On the boys side the Panthers are dominating as of late winners of 4 out of the past 5 games, averaging 61 points per game as they’ve done so. The Panthers are taking on a Des Moines Christian squad having suffered just their first loss of the season early last week. They defeated Panorama earlier in the season back in the very first game of the year.Defensively the Panthers will have to limit the production of the conference’s leading scorer in Ben Juhl averaging just under 22 points per game.
The Lady Panthers will get the ball rolling starting at 6:00 pm followed by the boys contest at 7:30 pm.
