by jessie Williams

Highland, KS - The OnPoint Academy Panthers got off to a fairly competitive start before falling behind by 8 points at the half and never overcoming the deficit, falling to the Highland College Scotties 100-79 on the road.  PG Justin Harris led the Panthers with 24 points on 8-20 shooting from the field and 6-14 from beyond the arc. Nate Johnson contributed a solid shooting performance by finishing the night 6-10 from the field and 3-7 from deep to chip in a cool 19 points.  On the defensive side of the ball, Tony Kinser did his best Dikembe Mutombo impression by rejecting 3 shots in limited action due to foul trouble.
