Carthage, Texas – The Panola College men’s basketball team defeated Kilgore College on Wednesday, Jan. 31, and Bossier Parish Community College on Saturday, Feb. 3. The two wins elevate Panola’s record to 14-8 and 7-5 in region play. “This team has begun to mature,” Head Coach Grant McMillan said. “We are starting to handle the ups and downs of a ball game the right way, handling adversity. It showed the previous two games.”

On Wednesday night against Kilgore College, Panola found themselves down by nine at halftime, 21-30. It took all the way to the 15-second mark remaining in the game for the Ponies to take the lead. Marlon Taylor was fouled on dunk and made his free throw to take a 57-56 lead. After Kilgore went 1-1 from the free throw line to tie the game, Jeremy Roscoe was fouled with 1.1 seconds remaining. Roscoe made one-free throw to seal the victory.

Saturday afternoon, Panola traveled to Bossier Parish Community College. After being down by 14, 26-12, the Ponies went on a monster run to end the half to tie the game at 30. Panola continued its offensive outburst which eventually saw them up 64-50 in the second half. The Ponies won 71-59.

Panola continues Region 14 play on Wednesday, February 7 when they host Paris College. Tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m. in the A.J. Johnson Gymnasium on the campus of Panola College.
