January 17, 2014  -  Timber Creek  62  -  Dr. Phillips  57.  The Panthers fall to the Wolves. 
The game was close at halftime with the Panthers holding a one point lead, but Timber Creek came out and scored on 8 of their first 9 possessions in the third quarter to take control of the game.  The Panthers inability to get defensive stops really hurt them as they were dominated in the third quarter for the second consecutive game.  Chaundee Brown takes game MVP honors with 23 points, 12 rebounds, 4 assists, and 1 block.  Jonathan Laurent had a double-double with 17 points, 12 rebounds, and 2 blocks.  David Stephen had 11 points and a team high 7 assists, but the rest of the entire team could only manage 6 points.  Congrats to the Timber Creek HS Wolves.  They were the better team.  This was the first Timber Creek win over Dr. Phillips in their schools history.  The Panthers play next at home on Monday January 20th at 5:00 pm against the West Orange Warriors.  Note the varsity game time - 5:00 pm.  Good luck to the Panthers against West Orange.

Chaundee Brown had 23 points and 12 rebounds against Timber Creek.


January 16, 2014  -  Boone  76  -  Dr. Phillips  70.  Dr. Phillips drops a key district game to Boone. 
The Panthers got off to a good start, leading by 9 points at the end of the first quarter but Boone trimmed the deficit to two points at halftime.  DP was crushed in the third quarter being outscored 24-12 as Boone took control of the game.  DP simply had no answers for Boone standout and UCF commit BJ Taylor as he scored 44 points in the Boone victory.  Jonathan Laurent led DP with 20 points, 10 rebounds, and 3 assists.  Chaundee Brown added 13 points and 6 rebounds.  David Stephen had 10 points and 7 assists.  Elijah Jordan had 9 points, 2 assists, and 2 rebounds.  Nick Smith had 10 points and 7 rebounds.  Ira Warren had 6 points and 3 rebounds.  Wilkins Desir had 4 assists, 2 rebounds, 2 points, and 2 steals.  The Panthers drop to 12-5 on the season and 1-1 in the district with the loss.  Boone now has the inside track to the #1 seed in the district tournament.  Give Boone credit.  DP and everyone else knew that BJ Taylor would be shooting most the shots and they were able to come into DP's gym and do it anyways.  The better team won.  Now the Panthers must get back to work and earn a rematch with the Braves to show everyone that they are a better team than what we showed on Thursday.  Dr. Phillips plays next on Friday January 17th at Timber Creek.  Good luck to the Panthers as they take on the Wolves on Friday.

Jonathan Laurent had 20 points, 10 rebounds, and 3 assists against Boone.


January 11, 2014  -  Orlando Christian Prep  70  -  Dr. Phillips  56.  The Panthers fall to OCP in the 'Showdown in O-Town'. 
Orlando Christian Prep came into the game undefeated (16-0), ranked in the top 25 in the nation and #1 in their classification.  They start 4 division 1 seniors.  The Panthers were going to have to play very well to win the game.  DP played good and hung in there most of the game, but didn't play well enough to get the victory falling 56-70 to OCP.  DP trailed by just six points at halftime but would never get any closer than that in the second half.  DP had the ball down 9 with 4 minutes to go and missed an open three to cut the lead to six and never got any closer the rest of the way.  Chaundee Brown earns game MVP honors for the second consecutive game with 21 points, 11 rebounds, and 3 assists.  Jonathan Laurent put up another double-double with 15 points, 11 rebounds, and 3 assists.  David Stephen had 13 points, 7 assists, 3 rebounds, and 2 steals.  Elijah Jordan had 5 points.  The Panthers fall to 12-4 on the season.  DP's four losses are to nationally ranked and undefeated OCP, #1 ranked Evans, #2 ranked Wekiva, and #4 ranked Oviedo.  The Panthers play next on Thursday January 16th in a big district game at home against Boone High School.  The winner will have the inside track on the #1 seed for the district tournament.  Game time is 7:30 pm at DP on Thursday.  Good luck to the Panthers on Thursday against the Braves.

David Stephen had 13 points, 7 assists, 3 rebounds, and 2 steals against OCP.


January 10, 2013  -  Dr. Phillips  71  -  Freedom  68.  Dr. Phillips wins a close one over the Patriots. 
DP played the #1 team in the state in class 8A on Tuesday and will play the #1 team in class 2A, nationally ranked Orlando Christian Prep, on Saturday but this game was the most important of the three because it's a district game.  DP led the entire game, but could never put away the Patriots.  The Panthers withstood a Freedom rally in the last two minutes to escape with the 71-68 win.  Chaundee Brown was the game MVP for the Panthers logging a double-double with 19 points, 10 rebounds, 4 steals, and 3 assists.  David Stephen came back from injury and played well with 15 points, a career high 10 assists, and 5 rebounds.  Jonathan Laurent logged a double-double against his old school with 12 points, 11 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 block.  Ira Warren had 8 points and 3 rebounds.  Wilkins Desir had 7 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 steals.  Elijah Jordan had 6 points, 2 assists, 2 steals, and 1 block.  Nick Smith had 3 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, and 1 block.  Emare Hogan had 3 assists, 2 rebounds, and 1 point.  Dr. Phillips improves to 12-3 on the season and 1-0 in the district with the win.  DP has no time to celebrate however as they will take on Orlando Christian Prep on Saturday at 5:00 pm at OCP on Bright House Networks TV - Channels 47 & 1147.  The game is part of an all day event called the 'Showdown in O-Town' which matches Central Florida's best public schools vs. the best private schools.  OCP is undefeated and ranked in the top 25 in the nation, so it will definitely be a tough test for the Panthers, but the team is excited and up for the challenge.  Congrats to DP on their big win over Freedom and good luck against OCP!

Chaundee Brown had 19 points and 10 rebounds in the DP win over Freedom.


January 7, 2013  -  Evans  71  -  Dr. Phillips  60.  The Panthers fall to top ranked Evans. 
The Panthers, ranked 5th in Class 8A in the most recent poll, had their hands full taking on Evans which is ranked #1 in the state in the Class 8A poll.  DP played even with Evans for the first 4 minutes of the game.  But with the score tied at 8, Evans went on a 7-0 run to take control of the first half.  Evans led by 11 at the halftime break.  DP played Evans even the entire second half, but never really could get the game closer than 9 points as Evans cruised to the 71-60 win.  Jonathan Laurent led DP with 17 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists.  Ira Warren had 11 points, 2 rebounds, and 1 assist.  Chaundee Brown had 10 points, 4 rebounds, 4 steals, and 1 assist.  Wilkins Desir had 9 points, 3 assists, 2 steals, and 2 rebounds.  Emare Hogan had a team high 6 assists, 6 points, and 4 rebounds.  Elijah Jordan had 5 points and 3 assists.  Nick Smith had 3 rebounds, 2 points, and a steal.  Dr. Phillips drops to 11-3 on the season.  The Panthers play next at home on Friday January 10th in a big district game against Freedom High School.  Game time is 7:30 pm.  Panther fans, come out to the 'House of Payne' on Friday and cheer on your Panthers in this crucial contest.

Emare Hogan had a team high 6 assists against Evans.


January 4, 2013  -  Dr. Phillips  57  -  Auburndale  53 (Overtime).  Dr. Phillips starts off the new year with a hard fought victory over Auburndale. 
The Panthers had not played a game in 12 days and it showed as the team was a little out of sync for most of the game, but the team fought their tails off and secured a thrilling overtime victory over Auburndale High School at the 'Orange Co. vs. Polk Co. Challenge at Boone High School.  The Panthers led for most of the game, but never could put away the pesky Auburndale squad.  Jonathan Laurent led DP with 20 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, and 1 charge taken.  Jonathan's most important play was a defensive play, however.  DP had the ball in a tie game with 10 seconds left and threw the ball away, but Jonathan hustled back and changed a potential Auburndale game winning layup at the buzzer into a missed shot sending the game into overtime.  Freshman Chaundee Brown was very good all game with 13 points, a team high 9 rebounds, 1 steal and 1 block.  Senior Ira Warren had 13 points, 3 assists, 2 rebounds, and 1 block.  Freshman Elijah Jordan had 5 points.  Freshman Emare Hogan had a team high 4 assists, 5 rebounds, 2 points, and a steal.  Wilkins Desir had 5 rebounds, 4 points, 2 assists, and 2 steals.  The Panthers improve to 11-2 on the season.  Believe it or not, the Panthers will play their first true home game of the season on Tuesday January 7th at 7:30 pm against the top ranked team in Class 8A - the Evans Trojans.  (DP had 2 home games as part of the preseason classic, but this will be the first official home game.)  Panther fans - come out to the 'House of Payne' on Tuesday and support your Panthers as they take on one of the best teams in the state!  Game time is 7:30 pm.  Congratulations to the team on making the big plays when they counted the most in the thrilling victory over Auburndale and good luck to the Panthers on Tuesday against Evans.

Chaundee Brown had 13 points and 9 rebounds in the win over Auburndale.


December 23, 2013  -  Dr. Phillips  50  -  Westminster Academy  49.  Dr. Phillips takes 3rd place in the Deland Rotary Tourney with a close win over Westminster. 
The Panthers, playing without two starters due to injury, made enough plays down the stretch to secure the one point win in the 3rd place game of the Gus Gibbs Deland Rotary Tournament.  Freshman Nick Smith came up big with a game high 14 points off the bench to go with 2 rebounds and one steal.  Ira Warren takes away game MVP honors with 13 points, 9 rebounds, and 2 assists.  Freshman Chaundee Brown had 8 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 asssists.  Freshman Emare Hogan had a team high 7 assists and 5 points, 4 rebounds, and a team high 4 steals.  Wilkins Desir had 4 points, 2 rebounds, 3 asssists, 2 steals, and 1 block.  Jonathan Laurent had 6 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 blocks, 1 steal, and the game deciding free throw with 5 seconds left.  The Panthers improve to 10-2 on the season with the win.  DP will take a few days off for Christmas and then begin preparing for the second half of the season.  The Panthers next game will be on Saturday January 4th against Auburndale HS.  The game is being played at Boone HS as part of the 'Orange County vs. Polk County Challenge'.  Game time is 2:00 pm.  Congrats to the team on the narrow win and your successful first half of the season.  Have an enjoyable Holiday Season and good luck as you start your preparations for the second half of the season.

Ira Warren had 13 points and 9 rebounds in the DP win over Westminster Academy.


December 21, 2013  -  Oviedo  73  -  Dr. Phillips  53.  The Panthers drop their second game of the season to Oviedo. 
The Panthers quest to win the Deland Rotary Tournament was denied by a very talented Oviedo Lions squad on Saturday night in a 73-53 loss.  Oviedo pretty much controlled the entire game.  Jonathan Laurent led DP with 19 points, 7 rebounds, 3 steals, 1 assist, and 1 block.  Freshman Emare Hogan had his best game since coming off the football team with 10 points, 2 rebounds, and an assist.  Wilkins Desir was a stat stuffer with 9 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 blocks, and 1 steal.  Freshman Chaundee Brown had 8 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist, and 1 steal.  Freshman Nick Smith played his second consecutive good game with 5 points, 3 rebounds, and a steal.  David Stephen led DP with 8 assists to go with 2 points and 2 rebounds.  Dr. Phillips drops to 9-2 on the season and to the third place game of the Deland Rotary Tournament.  DP will play on Monday December 23rd at 6:00 pm against Westminster Academy (8-4) from Ft. Lauderdale for 3rd place at Deland HS.  Congrats to Oviedo.  They were the better team.  It will be interesting to see who makes it to Lakeland between Oviedo and Wekiva in Class 7A - Region 1.  The Panthers owe their two losses to those two teams and they are both very good.  Good luck to the Panthers on Wednesday as they shoot for 3rd place in the tourney.

Wilkins Desir goes up for the rebound against Oviedo.


December 20, 2013  -  Dr. Phillips  65  -  New Smyrna Beach  25.  The Panthers move to 9-1 on the season with an opening round win in the Deland Rotary Invitational. 
New Smyrna Beach was a gritty team that never quit, but they were outmatched by the Panthers on this night.  DP completely controlled the game.  No DP starter even played in the second half as the Panthers took a 41-14 lead into the break.  Every Panther that played scored.  It was a much needed game for the Panthers - a game in which everyone could get some good minutes.  No starter played more than 12 minutes in the game.  Freshman Nick Smith takes away game MVP honors with a career high 14 points to go with 3 steals, 3 rebounds, and 2 assists.  Great job Nick.  Jonathan Laurent had 14 points and 3 rebounds in just 10 minutes of game action.  David Stephen had 14 points and 2 assists in just 12 minutes of playing time.  Sophomore Marlon Daniel had a nice game with 6 assists and 5 points.  Freshman Emare Hogan had a team high 7 assists to go with 3 points.  Glenn Jay had a team high 8 rebounds to go with 3 points.  Freshman Chaundee Brown had 7 rebounds and 5 points in just 11 minutes of game action.  Wilkins Desir had 4 rebounds and 2 points.  Sophomore Richard McKenzie had 4 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals, and 1 point.  Ira Warren had 2 points, 2 rebounds, and 2 assists.  Carl Cooper logged his very first varsity points with 2 points and 1 rebound.  Congrats Carl!  The Panthers improve to 9-1 on the season.  DP advances to Saturday's semifinal game at the Deland Rotary Invitational.  DP will take on Oviedo HS at 6:00 pm on Saturday.  Should be a great game.  Oviedo is highly ranked and one of the best teams in Central Florida.  Good luck to the Panthers on their quest for the tournament championship and congrats on your big win over New Smyrna Beach.

Nick Smith had a team high 14 points against New Smyrna Beach.


December 19, 2013  -  Dr. Phillips  63  -  Leesburg  54.  Dr. Phillips gets back on the winning track with a road win at Leesburg. 
Good win for the Panthers.  DP controlled the first half and went to the break with a 13 point lead, but Leesburg stormed back in the 3rd quarter and cut the lead to four, but the Panthers were able to regroup and make the plays down the stretch to take the victory.  Dr. Phillips was led by Jonathan Laurent who had a team high 22 points and a team high 9 rebounds to go with 5 steals and 2 blocks.  David Stephen was a stat stuffer with 19 points, a team high 8 assists, 5 rebounds, and 4 steals.  Freshman Chaundee Brown had 16 points and 6 rebounds.  Wilkins Desir had 6 points, 3 rebounds, and some great 4th quarter defense on Leesburg's best player to secure the win.  Ira Warren had 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal, and 1 block.  Starting freshman guard Elijah Jordan suffered a broken nose in the game.  His status is uncertain for the next few games.  Dr. Phillips improves to 8-1 on the season.  DP gets no time to celebrate as they take on New Smyrna Beach HS on Friday at 3:00 pm at Deland High School in the opening round of the Gus Gibbs Deland Rotary Invitational Tournament.  Good luck to the Panthers against New Smyrna and congrats on the big road win over Leesburg.  The team showed some fortitude in pulling out the win.

Jonathan Laurent had 22 points and 9 rebounds in the DP win over Leesburg.


December 17, 2013  -  Wekiva  62  -  Dr. Phillips  35.  The Panthers suffer their first loss of the season to Wekiva. 
Tough night for the Panthers.  Wekiva's suffocating defense was simply too much to handle in this game.  The Panthers were unable to get into any offensive rhythm all night as Wekiva controlled the game.  Jonathan Laurent carried the offensive load with 19 points and 5 rebounds, but no other Panther really impacted the game offensively.  David Stephen was next in points with just 6.  Wekiva showed why many (including the DP coach) project them to be a serious state title contender in Class 7A.  Congrats to the Mustangs.  They were clearly the better team on this night.  Dr. Phillips drops to 7-1 on the season and 2-1 in the Metro Conference.  There's no shame in losing to a clearly better team.  The Panthers will hopefully learn from their mistakes and realize that while the team is talented, we have a long ways to go to reach the level where the team strives for.  Dr. Phillips plays next on Thursday December 19th at 7:30 pm against Leesburg High School at Leesburg High School as part of an event called the Crown Jewel Classic.  Good luck to the Panthers as they try to rebound from their first loss against Leesburg.

December 14, 2013  -  Dr. Phillips  58  -  Santa Fe  52.  The Panthers notch their 7th consecutive win to start the season. 
The Panthers had a full week between games and the team used that time to work on their half court offensive and defensive systems.  The work paid dividends as the Panthers defeated a quality Santa Fe High School squad by a score of 58-52.  The game was tight throughout with neither team really able to establish any rhythm, but the Panthers were once again able to get just one more stop and make just one more play in the final few minutes to pull out the victory.  Jonathan Laurent logged his 7th consecutive double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds.  Ira Warren kept the Panthers in the game in the first half with 14 points and 3 steals.  David Stephen had 11 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists and a huge three pointer in the final minutes that put DP up by one.  Great job David.  Wilkins Desir was a stat stuffer with 6 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, and 3 steals.  The DP freshmen stepped up as well.  Chaundee Brown had 8 points, 3 rebounds, 3 steals, and 2 assists.  Elijah Jordan had a team high 6 assists, a team high 4 steals to go with 5 rebounds and 2 points.  Emare Hogan had 3 points, 1 rebound, 1 assist, and 1 steal.  Freshman Nick Smith also got in and saw his first varsity action since coming off the football team.  A very good win for the Panthers over a quality team.  Dr. Phillips improves to 7-0 on the season.  DP is currently ranked #3 in the state in Class 8A in the latest state poll.  The Panthers next game is a big one.  DP will travel to Wekiva on Tuesday December 17th for a 7:30 tip against the Mustangs.  Wekiva is ranked #2 in the state in Class 7A and is without doubt one of the best teams in Central Florida.  It should be another great test for the Panther squad which has impressively managed to pass every test so far this season.  Panther fans, come out to Wekiva on Saturday night and cheer on your team and enjoy two of the best programs in Central Florida going to battle.  Should be a great game.  Congrats to the team on their win over Santa Fe and their 7-0 start to the season.

December 7, 2013  -  Dr. Phillips  61  -  Miami High  53.  Dr. Phillips picks up their second consecutive quality win over the Stingarees. 
Miami High is one of the states most decorated boys basketball programs.  They have won more state championships than any other high school in Florida.  They were the first 'national' type program from the state of Florida.  They are a public school power in Miami.  Dr. Phillips would like to think they've done alright for themselves as a public school in Orlando.  Years ago the two coaches agreed to do something that few schools do.....play each other every year, despite the distance.  The Panthers made the trip south on Saturday and came away with a hard fought 61-53 win over a previously unbeaten Miami High squad.  The game was tight throughout.  DP led by two at halftime and made one or two more plays and stops in the last few minutes than the Stingarees to pull out the win.  Jonathan Laurent was a man amongst boys in this game.  He led DP with a team high 28 points, a team high 15 rebounds, a team high 5 assists to go with a steal and a block.  Wow!  Jonathan has now scored 20+ points and grabbed 10+ rebounds in every Panther game this season.  Great job Jonathan.  Wilkins Desir was a stat stuffer with 9 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals.  Chaundee Brown had 8 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 assists.  David Stephen had 6 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 assists.  Ira Warren had 3 points and an assist.  Richard McKenzie, Marlon Daniel, and Emare Hogan all got in the game and contributed as well.  Great win for the Panthers.  DP improves to 6-0 on the season.  The Panthers play next on Saturday December 14th at Williston High School in a one day shootout against Santa Fe High School from the Gainesville area.  Game time is 3:15 pm.  Congrats to the Panthers on their big win over Miami High, but it's time to get back on the practice floor and improve each and every day!  Good luck in your upcoming game against Santa Fe.

Freshman wing Chaundee Brown.


November 30, 2013  -  Dr. Phillips  82  -  Osceola  77.  The Panthers pick up their best win of the season so far defeating Osceola. 
Osceola is a very talented team.  They returned four starters and are the favorite to come out of their region in Class 7A.  They play fast and well.  The Panthers knew that they would have their hands full, but the team was up to the challenge as they pulled off an exciting 82-77 win over the Kowboys.  The game was fast paced.  DP led 22-18 at the end of the first quarter and 44-41 at halftime.  But Osceola outscored DP by five in the third quarter and took a 58-56 lead into the 4th quarter.  DP continued their trend so far in this season by making the plays down the stretch and outscored Osceola by 7 in the fourth quarter to take the hard fought 82-77 win.  Jonathan Laurent was absolutely amazing tonight logging 36 points and 17 rebounds.  Wow! Great effort Jonathan.  Once again, the Panther freshmen didn't play like freshmen.  Chaundee Brown had 14 points and 8 rebounds.  Elijah Jordan had 3 assists and 2 rebounds.  Calvin Ashley had 4 rebounds and 1 point.  Emare Hogan had 2 points and a huge steal late in the game.  Great job rookies.  David Stephen had 13 points and a team high 5 assists.  Ira Warren nailed three big three's for 9 points.  Wilkins Desir had 7 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 steals as well as the game clinching free throws.  It was a great win for the team over a very good team.  The team has done an amazing job so far in the season of winning the fourth quarter and making the big plays down the stretch of the game.  DP improves to 5-0 on the season with the win.  DP next turns their attention to a big Metro game on Wednesday December 4th at home against West Orange.  It will be our first regular season game in our new beautiful gym.  DP fans....come out and support your undefeated hoops team on Friday.  The varsity game starts at 7:30 pm.  Congrats to the team on your big win over Osceola, but it's time to focus on the Warriors of West Orange!
 
Jonathan Laurent had 36 points and 17 rebounds in the Panther win over Osceola!


November 29, 2013  -  Dr. Phillips  67  -  Deltona  59.  DP improves to 4-0 on the season with the 'Metro vs. Florida Challenge' win over Deltona. 
The Panthers came out on fire in the first quarter and stunned the Wolves of Deltona earning a 21-6 advantage at the end of the first quarter.  Deltona fought back, but was never able to get back into the game as the Panthers pulled out the 67-59 win.  Jonathan Laurent was once again the best player on the court logging a game high 20 points and 12 rebounds including 8 for 9 from the free throw line.  Freshman Chaundee Brown had 15 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists for DP.  Freshman Elijah Jordan nailed four 3 pointers to finish with 12 points and 4 assists.  David Stephen had 10 points and a team high 7 assists.  Wilkins Desir added 4 points and 5 rebounds.  Freshman Calvin Ashley played well in limited minutes coming off the football field with 4 points.  Ira Warren added 2 points and 3 rebounds in his first varsity start.  A nice overall effort by the Panthers.  The team improves to 4-0 on the season (2-0 in the Metro, 0-0 in the district).  DP has no time to celebrate as they take on Osceola High School at 7:00 pm at Wekiva HS in their second and final game of the 'Metro vs. Florida Challenge'.  Osceola is a final four favorite in Class 7A and will definitely provide a very tough test for the Panthers.  Good luck to DP against Osceola and congrats on the victory over Deltona and your 4-0 start to the season.

Jonathan Laurent had 20 points & 12 rebounds in the Panther win over Deltona.


November 23, 2013  -  Dr. Phillips  59  -  Dwyer  57.  The Panthers pick up their third consecutive win to start the season over Dwyer. 
It wasn't a pretty game, but there are no points given for style.  DP grinded their way to a gritty 59-57 win over South Florida power Dwyer HS on Saturday night at OCP.  DP led for most of the game, but could never put away Dwyer.  DP led by one after one;  5 after two;  9 after three;  and held off a Dwyer 4th quarter run to win by two.  The game deciding play came with 15 seconds left in the game with the score tied at 57.  DP ran a baseline out of bounds play that drew some attention to leading scorer Jonathan Laurent, and then Wilkins Desir hit freshman Chaundee Brown with a great pass and Chaundee finished strong over a Dwyer defender to put DP up two.  The Panthers finished off the game with a great defensive series at the end of the game to seal the 2 point win.  For the third consecutive game Jonathan Laurent was the best player on floor with 24 points, 10 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, and 1 block.  David Stephen had 8 points, a team high 5 assists, 2 steals, and 2 rebounds.  Chaundee Brown had 8 points including the game winner and 7 rebounds.  Wilkins Desir had 5 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 steal.  Elijah Jordan had 4 points, 3 blocks, and 2 steals.  Ira Warren had 8 points, 2 rebounds, and 2 steals for the Panthers.  DP had too many turnovers, but they were able to find a way to make the plays in the last minute to win the game....a sign of a good team.  DP has been playing without three varsity players - Emare Hogan, Calvin Ashley, and Nick Smith - who were playing on the varsity football team.  Our football team lost on Friday in the playoffs, so DP will practice for the first time this season with their full squad on Monday!  DP plays next on Friday November 29th at Wekiva High School against Deltona High at 4:00 pm in the 'Florida vs. Metro Challenge'.  Deltona is a very talented team with a player already committed to playing college ball at UCF, so it will be another tough test for the Panthers.  DP fans, please come out to Wekiva on Friday to watch some post Thanksgiving hoops and support your undefeated Panthers.  Congrats to the team on their very good win over Dwyer.  It's great to be a Panther!

Chaundee Brown had 8 points including the game winner against Dwyer.


November 22, 2013  -  Dr. Phillips  61  -  Olympia  52.  DP claims a big win over backyard rival Olympia.  DP vs. Olympia is one of the best rivalries in all of Central Florida.  The schools are just 3 miles apart and whenever the two schools get together, it's always intense.  This game was no different.  It went back and forth.  DP controlled the first quarter taking a 6 point lead.  Olympia stormed back in the second quarter to take a 3 point halftime lead.  The third quarter was relatively even, but for the second consecutive game the Panthers controlled the fourth quarter and pulled away for the nine point victory.  Jonathan Laurent logged a double-double for the second consecutive night with 23 points, 14 rebounds, 3 steals, 2 blocks, and an assist.  Great job Jonathan.  He was a difference maker.  Ira Warren played well for the second game in a row scoring 12 points and grabbing 3 rebounds.  Wilkins Desir had 9 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists.  Chaundee Brown had 8 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 assists.  David Stephen had a team high 6 assists to go with 3 points, 4 rebounds, and 2 steals.  Elijah Jordan had 4 points, 3 assists, 2 rebounds, and a steal.  Richard McKenzie knocked down both of his free throws and had 2 rebounds.  Marlon Daniel and Glenn Jay both played in the game and contributed to the DP victory as well.  A great road, Metro Conference win for the Panthers.  DP improves to 2-0 on the season and 2-0 in the Metro Conference (both road wins).  A great overall team effort.  Congratulations to the boys.  DP gets no time to celebrate however, as they take on Dwyer High School from Palm Beach County on Saturday at 3:45 pm at Orlando Christian Prep.  Dr. Phillips and Dwyer have been two of Florida's best public school programs over the last 20 years.  It should be a great matchup.  Good luck to DP against Dwyer and congrats to the Panthers on their big win over Olympia.

Jonathan Laurent had 23 points including this big slam dunk against Olympia.



November 20, 2013  -  Dr. Phillips 62  -  Ocoee 51.  The Panthers claim a Metro Conference win over Ocoee.  The Panthers broke open a tight game in the fourth quarter to pull away from the Knights of Ocoee for a big season opening victory.  The game was tight through three quarters with DP holding a slim 38-35 lead after three quarters, but the Panthers made the big plays in the 4th quarter to take the win.  Junior Jonathan Laurent earned game MVP honors with 21 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists.  Senior Ira Warren came in early for an injured Richard McKenzie and performed well.  Ira had 13 points and 3 rebounds.  Freshman Chaundee Brown tallied 11 points, 3 rebounds, and 3 steals in his first official varsity start.  Freshman Elijah Jordan was a stat stuffer with 8 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, and 3 steals in his first official varsity start.  David Stephen had 9 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists for the Panthers.  Richard McKenzie gave the team some good minutes before leaving with an injury and Glenn Jay also got in and contributed to the Panther win.  A very good overall team effort against a good Ocoee squad.  DP improves to 1-0 on the season and 1-0 in the Metro Conference.  The Panthers next game is always an exciting one.  DP will travel the 3 miles to Olympia High School on Friday for another big Metro Conference game.  Panther fans - please come out to Olympia and support your varsity squad.  Game time is 7:30 pm.  Congratulations to the team on their hard earned victory over Ocoee and good luck against Olympia on Friday.

Ira Warren had 13 points in the Panther win over Ocoee.


November 14, 2013  -  Oak Ridge 88  -  Dr. Phillips 73.  The Panthers don't have enough to defeat the Pioneers.  DP took on one of the more talented teams in their classification in the Oak Ridge Pioneers on Thursday.  The Panthers played well in the first half taking a 40-37 lead into the break, but Oak Ridge came out and scored on their first six possessions of the third quarter including five three's to take command of the game.  DP battled back and ended up winning the 4th quarter, but they could not overcome the huge third quarter that Oak Ridge had and the Panthers end up falling 73-88.  David Stephen earns game MVP honors for the Panthers with 31 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 steals.  Freshman Chaundee Brown had an incredible first half and finished the game with 20 points and 6 rebounds.  Freshman Elijah Jordan was solid with 8 points, a team high 6 assists, 3 rebounds, and 2 steals.  Sophomore Richard McKenzie logged 7 points and 4 rebounds in his first varsity start.  Richard started in the place of Jonathan Laurent who did not play because of an injury sustained on Tuesday.  Wilkins Desir had 6 points, 4 rebounds, 3 steals, 2 assists, and 2 blocks.  Marlon Daniel added two points for the Panthers.  The Panthers now gear up for the beginning of the regular season when the games actually count.  DP will travel to Ocoee on Wednesday November 20th to take on the Knights in a big Metro Conference matchup!  Congrats on a successful preseason classic with the Panthers splitting two games against two really good opponents.  Good luck to the Panthers on Wednesday against Ocoee.  Game time is 7:30 pm.

David Stephen had 31 points against Oak Ridge.


November 12, 2013  -  Dr. Phillips 69  -  Bartow 63.  The Panthers pick up a preseason classic win over Bartow.  Congrats to the Panther Hoops Squad on their quality victory over Bartow Tuesday night in DP's new gym.  DP jumped on Bartow early with an explosive first quarter.  David Stephen had 11 points in the quarter and Jonathan Laurent had 10 points in the quarter as DP led 25-17 after one.  DP extended their lead in the second quarter outscoring Bartow by 6 to take a 43-29 halftime lead.  Jonathan Laurent sacrificed his body for the team and took a big charge in the middle of the third quarter.  Great play Jonathan!  Unfortunately, Jonathan came out of the charge taken with a bloody mouth and some damage to one of his teeth and was unable to return to the game.  Here was Jonathan's line in just 16 minutes of play - 18 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal, 1 charge taken, and 1 messed up tooth!  All in 16 minutes.  Wow.  Bartow made a nice run after Jonathan went out of the game, but the team never lost the lead.  They regained their composure and David Stephen hit some big buckets in the 4th quarter to seal the victory.  David Stephen had 21 points, 5 assists, and 3 rebounds.  Great job David.  Freshman Chaundee Brown was third on the team in scoring with 9 points.  He also grabbed 7 rebounds in his first ever varsity start.  Wilkins Desir had 6 points, 5 steals, 4 assists, and 3 rebounds.  Freshman Elijah Jordan had 5 points, 5 rebounds, and 1 steal in his first varsity start.  Richard McKenzie had 5 points, 2 rebounds, and 2 steals.  Ira Warren had 5 points and 3 rebounds.  Marlon Daniel and Glenn Jay also got in and contributed to the Panther victory.  The game does not count towards our overall record, but there were lots of positives from the team tonight.  A quality win over a quality opponent in our beautiful new gym.  Congrats to the team on their effort.  There is still much work to be done, but tonight was a good start to the season.  Panther fans, come out and support your team and check out our brand new gym on Thursday night at 7:00 pm as DP takes on Oak Ridge High School.  Oak Ridge has one of the best teams in the state in Class 8A, so it will be a big challenge for the team.  Come out on Thursday and see if the team is up to the challenge.

Wilkins Desir had 6 points, 5 steals, 4 assists, and 3 rebounds in the Panther win over Bartow.

August 10, 2013  -  Former DP great and NBA 1st round draft pick Shane Larkin shows off his new Dallas Mavericks uniform and his new number - #3.


July 18, 2013  -  Chris Warren moves from the French professional league to the Turkish professional league. 
Congrats to 2007 DP alumn Chris Warren on his move to the Usak professional basketball team in Turkey's professional league.  The move means a substantial pay increase based upon Chris' fantastic previous season with the French A League team JSF Nanterre (Paris).  Chris led Nanterre to the finals of the French Cup and won the Skills Competition at the French league's all-star weekend!  After leaving Ole Miss as a 1st Team All-SEC selection and scoring over 2,000 points for the Rebels, Chris played professionally in Australia for the Adelaide 36ers.  His second professional season was in France with Nanterre, and now Chris will be playing in Turkey.  Look at all the places basketball can take you!  Chris Warren is still the all-time leading scorer in Dr. Phillips basketball history with over 1,700 career points.  He left DP as the holder of 20 school records!  Congratulations Chris on your continued success.  It's a surprise to no one who watched you play at Dr. Phillips.  Below is an article on Chris' move.

Chris Warren - DP's all time leading scorer will be entering his third season of playing professional basketball.

Chris Warren to join Usak

Chris Warren (178 cm, Mississippi’11) is getting a change in scenery as he moves to Mackolik.com Usak Universitesi from Turkey’s TBL. Usak is a recent addition to the league thanks to its impressive performance in the TB2L in 2012-13. They signed Warren to a one-year deal.

Warren is coming off a season with JSF Nanterre from France’s ProA in 2012-13. He played 38 games for the 2013 ProA champs and averaged 12.0 ppg and 2.4 apg. Nanterre made it all the way to finals in the French Cup in 2013. In 2011-12, his rookie season as a pro, Chris played for the Adelaide 36ers. He played 28 games for them and averaged 14.1 ppg and 3.2 apg.


June 27, 2013  -  Shane Larkin is drafted #18 in the NBA Draft.  He will play for the Dallas Mavericks and becomes the first Dr. Phillips player ever drafted into the NBA!  Congratulations to DP alumn (Class of 2011) who just became the first DP player in school history to get drafted into the NBA.  Shane was selected with the 18th pick by the Atlanta Hawks, but that was part of a trade that would send Shane to the Dallas Mavericks.  It's a great opportunity for Shane to earn immediate playing time.  Dallas' point guard position is wide open.  They ended last season starting a 38 year old point guard, so Shane definitely has a chance to come in and play (perhaps start) right away!  Shane was a two time first team all state selection at DP.  He led DP to two state championship games, three Metro championships, and three district championships.  He was the ACC Player of the Year at Miami, ACC Tournament MVP, and an AP second team All-American.  He becomes the second highest draft selection in Miami history (Rick Barry was drafted #2).  The 'Panther Nation' is so proud!  What a great representative of the Dr. Phillips high school basketball program.  The Dallas Mavericks just became our favorite team!  Congrats to Shane and his family as one of his lifelong dreams was fulfilled!  So proud!

Shane Larkin does what all basketball players dream of doing - shakes NBA commissioner David Stern's hand as a first round draft choice on draft night.


Shane Larkin - newest member of the Dallas Mavericks!


Shane Larkin gets a hug from mom, Lisa, and dad, MLB hall of famer Barry, after being drafted #18 overall by the Dallas Mavericks.


April 1, 2013  -  DP alumn Shane Larkin is named to the AP All-American team!  Congratulations to former Dr. Phillips hoops star Shane Larkin who was just named to the 2nd Team AP All-American team today!  Wow!  Earlier Shane was named the ACC Player of the Year as voted on by the ACC coaches.  Shane was 1st Team All-ACC, and the runner up for ACC defensive player of the year and now he tops off his incredible season by being named an AP All-American.  He joins Mason Plumlee (Duke), Marcus Smart (Oklahoma State), Cody Zeller (Indiana), and Ben McLemore (Kansas) on the second team.  The first team was Kelly Olynyk (Gonzaga), Doug McDermott (Creighton), Victor Oladipo (Indiana), Otto Porter (Georgetown), and Trey Burke (Michigan).  Shane's success is no surprise to anyone who saw him play at Dr. Phillips.  He was named 1st Team All State twice and led DP to back to back state runners-up finishes and still holds a bunch of Dr. Phillips records.  Now he can add college All-American to his long list of accomplishments.  Congratulations and way to represent the 'Panther Nation'.  We are all so proud of Shane and how well he has and continues to represent Dr. Phillips High School.


Shane Larkin - AP All-American and the ACC Player of the Year!


March 29, 2013  -  RaShawn Powell is named the Class 8A State Player of the Year and becomes a finalist for the Florida 'Mr. Basketball' Award!  Congratulations to RaShawn 'Pookie' Powell who was just named the Class 8A state player of the year!  This makes him one of the finalists for the Florida 'Mr. Basketball' award as well.  This marks only the second time in Dr. Phillips boys basketball history that a player has won this award.  Damien Wilkins, currently playing for the Philadelphia 76ers, won the award on his way to the McDonald's All-American game.  Pookie is the only other DP player to take away the honor.  DP players Jason Rich (Florida State), Chris Warren (Ole Miss), and Shane Larkin (Miami) all finished as runners-up for the award to Darius Washington (Memphis), Kenny Boynton (Florida), and Austin Rivers (Duke) respectively.  Congratulations to RaShawn Pookie Powell on the incredibly prestigious award.  RaShawn has taken away just about every personal award that is out there - Class 8A Player of the Year, 'Mr. Florida' Finalist, 1st Team All-State, 1st Team All Central Florida, 1st Team All-Metro, 1st Team All Orange County as well as a host of Dr. Phillips school records - most points in a season, most points per game in a season, most three point baskets made in a season, most free throws made and attempted in a season, most free throws made and attempted in a career, and the third all time DP leading scorer.  Congratulations to RaShawn Powell on his many accomplishments.  The 'DP Nation' is very proud of you!
