The went up against Morrilton Feb. 28, playing in a packed arena full of Panther fans.

The Panthers will advance to the second round of the state tournament and play against Blytheville from Northeast Arkansas March 1 at 8:30 p.m. in the Panther Arena.

The Blytheville Chickasaws have an overall conference record of 21-6, compared to the Panthers’ record, which is 21-5.

When asked what he’s heard about the competition, Kyle Carver, Panther player, said, “They’re known for being able to get to the rim.”

At the beginning of the Morrilton game, the Panthers were 7 behind, but they were able to catch up and managed to stay ahead after that.

However, with 8 seconds left on the clock, a technical foul was called on Kadyn Roach for rubbing his fingers together after making a free throw.

Carver said the referees thought it was disrespectful of Roach to be celebrating his free throw, so the technical foul was issued.
