December 9, 2014  -  Ocoee  86  -  Dr. Phillips  80.  The Panthers fall to Ocoee.
The Panthers drop a critical Metro West Conference game to the Knights.  DP's defense was not good enough as Ocoee guards Grant Riller and Vaughn McCall torched the Panthers for 30 and 24 points respectively.  The Panthers aren't going to be able to advance in the playoffs giving up 47 points in a half and 86 points for a game.  Disappointing game for DP.  We will have to rebound and respond quickly as the Panthers take on the defending 7A state champs Oviedo HS at Oviedo on Saturday night.  Elijah Jordan led DP with 19 points.  Malik William added 17 points and 3 blocks.  Nick Smith had 13 points and David Stephen had 11 points and 11 assists.  The Panthers play next on Saturday December 13 at 7:30 pm at Oviedo HS against Oviedo HS - the defending Class 7A state champs.  DP will need to play much better than they did in this game to claim a victory.

Elijah Jordan had a team high 19 points in the Panthers game vs Ocoee.



December 6, 2014  -  Providence  55  -  Dr. Phillips  52.  DP comes up three points short against Providence.
The Panthers wanted to challenge themselves.  We wanted to go on the road to one of the state's most respected programs, one of the state's best teams and challenge ourselves - face some adversity and see where we are at.  Well, the game lived up to the billing.  Neither team could pull away from the other.  DP led by a small margin for most of the first three quarters, but in the end Providence drained a three point shot in a tie game with three seconds to go to take the victory.  We are disappointed that we didn't win the game.  We played well enough to win, but we definitely got better in this game.  We are hoping it will pay dividends down the road.  There was definitely a playoff atmosphere to the game.  Thanks to the good people at Providence for playing the game.  Chaundee Brown led DP with 14 points and 5 rebounds.  David Stephen added 11 points, 4 assists, 3 rebounds, and 3 steals.  Jonathan Laurent had 8 points, 4 rebounds, and 2 assists.  Malik William was a stat stuffer with 7 points, rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals, and 3 blocks.  Justin Tucker led DP in rebounding with 9 boards and had 6 points, 3 assists, and 1 steal.  Nick Smith had 3 points, 3 rebounds, and 3 steals.  The Panthers play next at home on Tuesday December 9th at 7:30 pm against Ocoee High School.  Ocoee is currently undefeated on the season and a Metro West Conference opponent.  Should be a great game.  Come out to the 'House of Payne' on Tuesday and support your Panthers.

Justin Tucker had a team high 9 rebounds and 6 points against Providence.



December 2, 2014  -  Dr. Phillips  76  -  Edgewater  36.  The Panthers come up huge in their Metro Conference matchup with the Eagles.
The team was collectively disappointed with their poor performance on Saturday and the Panthers took out their frustrations on Edgewater in a big 76-36 win.  The Panthers dominated this game with a balanced scoring effort.  Jonathan Laurent led DP with 17 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists.  David Stephen had 16 points, 5 assists, and 4 rebounds.  Chaundee Brown had 16 points and 3 rebounds.  Justin Tucker had 8 points and 3 rebounds.  Elijah Jordan had 8 points and 5 rebounds.  Malik William was a stat stuffer with 8 rebounds, 4 points, 2 assists, and 2 blocks.  The Panthers improve to 4-1 on the season and 2-0 in the Metro Conference.  It was a great overall team performance tonight.  The Panthers play next on Saturday December 6th at Jacksonville Providence at 7:00 pm.  Providence is one of the best teams in the state of Florida regardless of classification, so it should be a great test for the Panthers!  Congrats to the team on their big win over Edgewater and good luck this weekend in this big matchup of two of Florida's best high school programs!

Chaundee Brown had 16 points in the DP win over Edgewater.


November 29, 2014  -  Windermere Prep 68  -  Dr. Phillips  58.  DP suffers their first loss of the season.
DP was facing a tough test against a very talented Windermere Prep squad and unfortunately the Panthers weren't up to the challenge.  Windermere Prep pretty much controlled the entire game. Jonathan Laurent led DP with 16 points and Elijah Jordan added 11, but no other Panther was able to crack double figures in scoring or rebounding.  Disappointing outing for DP.  The Panthers will go back to work and try to improve some weaknesses that were exposed by Windermere Prep.  DP falls to 3-1 on the season.  The Panthers next play on Tuesday December 2nd in a big Metro Conference game at Edgewater High School.  Game time is 7:30 pm.  The Panthers will get one of their football players back for Edgewater - Nick Smith.  Our 2nd football player, Q Bargnare is doubtful to play until an ankle injury heals.  Good luck to the Panthers on Tuesday against Edgewater.

Jonathan Laurent had 16 points in the DP game vs Windermere Prep.



November 26, 2014 - Dr. Phillips 72  -  Spruce Creek 58. 
DP takes down Spruce Creek in the Metro vs Florida Challenge.
The Panthers faced a tough test against Spruce Creek whom is ranked #1 in the Daytona area by the Daytona Beach New Journal.  DP was up to the challenge as they dominated the first three quarters and pulled away for the 72-58 victory.  Four Panthers scored in double figures for the game.  Jonathan Laurent led DP with 20 points, 7 steals, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists.  David Stephen was solid with 15 points, 5 assists, and 2 rebounds.  Justin Tucker was good in his 2nd varsity start logging 12 points, 7 rebounds and 2 steals.  Wilkins Desir was a stat stuffer with 12 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals.  Malik William had 10 rebounds, 6 points, 4 blocks, 3 assists, and 3 steals.  Great job Malik!  Elijah Jordan chipped in 5 points, 4 assists, and 2 rebounds in the Panther win.  DP improves to 3-0 on the season.  The Panthers next take on a very good Windermere Prep squad on Saturday November 29th at 4:00 pm at Apopka High School.  It is our second game in the Metro vs Florida Challenge event.  Congrats to the team on the win over a very good Spruce Creek team.

Malik William had 10 rebounds, 6 points, 4 blocks, 3 assists, and 3 steals in the DP victory over Spruce Creek.

November 20, 2014 - Dr. Phillips 90  -  Olympia 43. 
The Panthers improve to 22-4 all time against backyard rival Olympia.
It's always a big game for the Panthers when they take on Olympia, a school just three miles away from DP.  The Panthers were fired up to start the game and it showed.  DP jumped out to a 25-1 lead in the first quarter and dominated the game from beginning to end.  Five Panthers finished in double figures. The game went to a running clock early in the third quarter.  Jonathan Laurent led the charge with 27 points.  David Stephen had 18 points.  Chaundee Brown had 14 points.  Richard McKenzie had a career high 13 points.  Justin Tucker had 10 points.  The Panthers improve to 22-4 in the all time series against the Titans.  DP improves to 2-0 on the season and 1-0 in the Metro Conference.  Congrats to the Panthers on dominating the Titans.  DP plays next on Wednesday November 26th at 3:30 pm against Spruce Creek at Apopka HS in the Metro vs Florida Challenge.

Jonathan Laurent led DP with 27 points in their blowout win over Olympia.

November 18, 2014 - Dr. Phillips 78  -  Lake Mary 33. 
Dr. Phillips opens up the season with a big win over the Rams.
Dr. Phillips started off their 2014-15 season with a bang with a big 78-33 victory over Lake Mary.  Justin Tucker led the way with an impressive 23 points.  Sophomore Chaundee Brown added 19 points.  Jonathan Laurent scored 11 points.  Malik William added 8 points.  David Stephen had 7, Wilkins Desir had 6, and Elijah Jordan and Richard McKenzie both added two points for the Panthers.  DP improves to 1-0 on the season.  DP takes on back yard rival Olympia on Thursday November 20th at home in their first Metro Conference game of the season.  Congrats to DP on your successful start to the season.

Justin Tucker led DP with 23 points in their victory over Lake Mary.

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!
