DR. PHILLIPS NEWS & NOTES
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, Calvin Ashley, 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.
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.

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.

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.
