BARTLESVILLE, Okla - Johnny Cooksey (SR/Shreveport, La) came up big for the Panthers down the stretch as he hit a clutch three-point basket to tie the game up and then made a layup with 1.5 seconds remaining, while being fouled. He made the free throw to give the Panthers the 85-84 victory.
Cooksey led the Panthers with 22 points. Kameron Malbrough (FR/Arlington, Texas) and Drelan Tripplett (JR/Oklahoma City, Okla) came up big off of the bench for York scoring 16 and 14 points, respectively. Cameron Coleman (SR/Allen, Texas) had 10 rebounds to lead the Panthers.
York went on a 13-0 run early to make it a 15-5 game with just over 11 minutes remaining in the first half. The Eagles of Oklahoma Wesleyan were able to cut their deficit to one with five minutes remaining but the Panthers went on a 15-4 run thanks to Malbrough hitting back-to-back threes to end the half.
York controlled most of the second half but foul trouble started to hurt the Panthers. Both Coleman and Mark Dean (JR/Denver, Colo) fouled out with lots of time remaining in the game. With under eight minutes to go the Panthers held a 10 point lead. However, the Eagles fought back to tie the game at 72 with 3:54 remaining. With two minutes to go the Eagles took their first lead since 15:59 mark of the first half. Tripplett made a three-pointer to make it 78-77 York before two free throws gave Wesleyan the lead. Another two fouls called on the Panthers put the Eagles at the line to put them up 81-78. With 11 seconds remaining the Ealges' Shaqur Martin got the offensive rebound and put back for the 84-82 lead. The Panthers quickly inbounded the ball and Cooksey drove his way into the lane for the layup while getting fouled. He converted the old fashioned three point play with one second remaining on the clock.
With the win the Panthers improve to 10-3 on the season and 6-2 in conference. York plays at Hastings Thursday night before they have a 10 day break.
