We were aggressive on both ends of the floor.,” said Panther head coach Jason Duff.

“Everyone contributed something positive to the win. Obviously when Kollin scores 26 we are tough to beat. Tom had a great game even though he didn’t shoot the ball particularly well.

“Eric was very efficient. He didn’t miss a shot,” Duff said.
