DR. PHILLIPS NEWS & NOTES

February 18, 2014  -  Evans  67  -  Dr. Phillips  50.  The Panthers season comes to an end in the round of 16 in the playoffs with a loss to #1 ranked Evans.


February 13, 2014  -  Dr. Phillips  71  -  Olympia  62.  The Panthers win their 20th game for the 21st consecutive year.....advance to the 'Sweet 16' for the 15th time in school history including the last 6 in a row! 
It was a great night for the Panther basketball program.  The team beat their backyard rival Olympia in the playoffs, won their 20th game of the year, and advanced to the Sweet 16 round of the Class 8A state playoffs....all in one night!  Wow!  Dr. Phillips dominated rival Olympia for the first three quarters of the game and then held off a furious Olympia charge in the 4th quarter to take the 71-62 win.  Dr. Phillips improves to 20-8 on the season and extends their incredible 20 win streak to 21 straight seasons.  Chaundee Brown takes away game MVP honors with 22 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal, and 1 block.  Jonathan Laurent produced yet another double-double with 18 points and 11 rebounds.  David Stephen had 14 points, 6 assists, 3 rebounds, and 2 steals.  Ira Warren was a stat stuffer with 7 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists, and 4 steals.  Great job Ira!  Wilkins Desir had 5 points, 3 rebounds, and 2 steals.  Elijah Jordan had 5 points and 2 rebounds.  The Panthers advance to the regional semifinal round of the Class 8A playoffs.  DP will travel to Evans to take on the Trojans on Tuesday February 18th at 7:00 pm.  The winner advances to the Elite 8 and regional final.  It should be a great game with the two schools with the most Metro Conference championships battling it out!  Congratulations to the Panthers.  Job well done!  The 'Panther Nation' is very proud of you for continuing the legacy of excellence within the DP boys basketball program.  Good luck on Tuesday against top ranked Evans!

Jonathan Laurent throws down a two hand power slam in the DP playoff victory over Olympia to advance DP to the 'Sweet 16'.


February 7, 2014  -  Dr. Phillips  85  -  Cypress Creek  48.  DISTRICT CHAMPIONS! 
The Panthers came into this game on a mission and it looked like it as DP dominated the game to win the district championship over the Bears of Cypress Creek.  This is the 11th district title in the last 21 years for DP and the 5th in the last 6 years!  Well done Panthers.  Freshman Chaundee Brown led DP with 21 points, 9 rebounds, 6 assists, and 2 steals.  Jonathan Laurent had 17 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 steals.  David Stephen nearly had a double-double with 9 points and 11 assists.  Ira Warren had 11 points and 3 steals.  Wilkins Desir had 8 points.  Elijah Jordan and Marlon Daniel each had 5 points.  Glenn Jay had 4 points.  Richard McKenzie and Emare Hogan had 2 points and Justin Tucker had 1 point to round out the Panther scoring.  Dr. Phillips moves to 19-8 on the season and the Class 8A state playoff tournament.  Dr. Phillips will host backyard rival Olympia on Thursday February 13th at 7:00 pm in the regional quarterfinal round of the playoffs.  It's a big game for the Panthers.  A win would give DP 20 wins for the 21st consecutive season as well as their 6th consecutive 'Sweet 16' appearance - both incredible streaks!  Congrats to the Panthers on obtaining one of the teams preseason goals - winning the district championship and good luck to the Panthers on Thursday in the playoffs against Olympia.

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!
