PARCHMENT - Trailing by five at halftime, Pennfield coach Chuck Miknis and his staff decided to go with a different defensive approach on Parchment sophomore point guard Alex Wolf. The result worked out beautifully as Pennfield's Phil Owen shut down Wolf in the second half and the Panthers earned a 58-45 victory on the road.
"Phil Owen really took over," Miknis said of Owen, who didn't score. "If I had to give out a game ball, he'd probably get one."
Owen hardly let Wolf touch the ball in the second half, and Wolf scored just two of his team-high 15 points after halftime.
Pennfield's Barry Parker had a big night with 13 points and 18 rebounds. Seth Badger chipped in 16.
"I could tell last week that we're becoming a better basketball team," Miknis said. "They're getting to know each other.
"Some of the younger kids are getting more comfortable on the floor."
The Panthers improved to 2-2 on the year. They also outrebounded Parchment 40-18.
