North Newton, Kan. - Cameron Coleman and Keith Mack helped the Panthers earn their 20th win of the season in front of a tough Bethel crowd. Coleman had a game high 27 points as he also grabbed 10 rebounds for his second consecutive double-double. Mack scored 21 points, and added six rebounds. Johnny Cooksey was the other Panther to score in double figures with 10 points.
The Panthers used a 9-1 run late in the first half to give them a 27-19 lead and pretty much led with a comfortable lead the rest of the way. York led 37-25 at the break and built their lead up to 21 with just over five minutes left in the game on a three point basket by Mack. Bethel went on a little bit of a run Chase Banister made five threes in a row to put the game down to single digits. However, Coleman and the Panthers stayed composed and made the necessary baskets down the stretch to secure the 84-74 win.
York dominated the paint scoring 48 points there, to just 26 by the Threshers. York also had great ball movement offensively as they were credited with 21 assists, led by Chris Smith with six.
York secures a 20-win season for the third time in five years as they sit in second place in the KCAC. York faces Ottawa University on Saturday night to finish out the regular season. Securing the two seed in the KCAC tournament the Panthers will play host to the seven seed on Feb. 22.
