KENOSHA, Wis. – Davenport, who was coming off an 88 points performance over Purdue Northwest on Thursday, faced a Parkside team that is tough to play in their home gymnasium. The Panthers struggled with their shot as a team and still had a chance to win the game late. A couple crucial errors in the last minute of play hurt the Panthers. However, the season is young and Davenport still has a solid record of 7-1 overall. Dyllon Hudson-Emory led the way for the Panthers in the game, he scored 19 points and had nine rebounds.
Final Score: Davenport-70 | Parkside-76

HOW IT HAPPENED
The opening 16 minutes of play the two teams traded bucket after bucket. The score was deadlocked at 22-22 with 4:01 left on the clock in the first half. Parkside proceeded to go on a 10-2 run to take an eight-point lead with under one minute to play. Davenport scored four points in the last 34 seconds of play to carry some momentum into halftime, but trailed 32-28.
Davenport had a good start to the second half. After a three pointer by Robbie Bramhill the score was tied 40-40 and the Panthers were starting to heat up from the field. Davenport then went cold from the field, going just over three minutes without scoring a basket. During that period Parkside built up a 54-47 lead. With 2:22 left in regulation Davenport trailed by seven points, but back to back threes cut the Rangers lead down to one point, Hudson-Emory hit the first and then Chris Rollins hit the second. Parkside came down and hit a layup to bring their lead up to three, but was still a one possession game. After a few traded buckets the Rangers held a three-point lead with only 21 seconds to go and Parkside had possession of the basketball. The Panthers let a Parkside slip away and they threw the ball over the top for a breakaway layup, giving them a five-point advantage. Immediately following the fast break layup by Parkside, Davenport turned the ball over on the inbounds pass. The Panthers couldn't cut the lead to single digits and time was not in their favor as it ran out.
