Badgers lead quickly evaporates after fast start                                                                                        

A great start quickly fizzled out, as the Coconino Panthers pounced on the Badgers for a 77-55 win in the Badger Dome. It was the third loss to Coconino this season.


The Badgers jumped on top 16-9 in the opening quarter, behind four three point shots by Cameron Parsons. Then came the cooling off period as Coconino came storming back, outscoring the Badgers 11-2 the final 3:37 in the opening quarter. Coconino led 20-18, and the Badgers would never be any closer the rest of the game.

The Panthers, who would outscore Prescott in all four quarters opened up a 35-26 lead at the break.

Things got worse in the third quarter, as the Panthers opened up a 45-28 lead with 6:34 left in the third quarter. The lead would grow to 18, at 58-40, going into the final eight minutes.
 

Prescott was out rebounded 33-18, including 17-8 on the offensive glass. The Panthers used their second chance points to build distance between them and the Badgers. Tristen Wilson came off the bench and made his presence felt by scoring eight points and pulling down eight rebounds.

Coconino's lead grew to 26 at 73-47, with 2:32 left.

The Badgers were led by Cameron Parsons 12 points. Harris Temple came off the bench to score nine. Dallin Jex added seven points and five rebounds.

Prescott falls to (4-4) in Grand Canyon Region play and (8-12) on the season. The Badgers will host their final home game of the season against Lee Williams, on Friday at 7pm. Coconino improves to (8-1) in Grand Canyon Region, and (20-5) overall. The Panthers will look to extend their win streak to six, when they travel to Kingman to face Lee Williams, tomorrow at 7pm.
