Big Game Tonight

Tonight's matchup will be with our rivals, the Belton, Pirates. Belton enters the game with a 5-3 record. The game will be likely be a capacity crowd at Ray-Pec High School. If you can't make the game, you can watch the game on Metro Sports TV as this is the game of the week. On another note, the girls will play at 5:30 before the boys.

More Than Basketball

Character development and giving back to the community are important characteristics of these Ray-Pec Panthers. The Panthers visited one of the communities retirement home, Foxwood Springs, and gave back to the citizens. The players actually took the time to make Christmas cards and sing Christmas carols. Needless to say, the boys were a huge hit for the citizens at Foxwood Springs.

5th Place Finish

The Panthers suffered a tough loss to Kearney in the first round of the William Jewell Holiday Tournament. However, the loss sparked the Panthers to fight back and capture a 5th place trophy. In that fifth place game, Nick Janssen hit a 3 pointer with under a minute remaining to put the Panthers up 3 points and eventually come away with a 42-37 victory.

JV: The JV team has had a good season at 4-4. Tuesday night they had an impressive comeback on Ruskin. Ruskin had a 10 point lead early and our Panther kept fighting. The game came down to Nick Cook's free throws with seconds remaining and down 2 points. After making both free throw and forcing what looked to be overtime, Ruskin shattered our hopes when they hit a shot at the buzzer. We're really proud of our JV because they are showing noticeable improvement.
