#8 DACC Holds On To Win over #6 Parkland
The Parkland Men’s Basketball team had three shots at a win in the final seconds Wednesday, but could not get the shot to go down, as they lost to rival Danville 67-66 in Champaign. The Cobras trailed 67-63 with less than a minute to go but Quin Nottingham was fouled on a three-point attempt with 39.1 remaining. The Centennial grad sank all three shots to cut the Jaguar lead to one and after a DACC missed shot, PC had the ball with a chance to win but for the second straight game lost by a single tally.
Nottingham led the Cobras with 17 points off the bench while Isaiah Curry had a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds and Devonte Daniels also had 11 in the loss. Jordan Gary led DACC with 16 points while Antoine Devine added 14 and Lavelle Smith added 11. The Jaguars shot 49% for the game to just 38% for PC. The Cobras controlled the boards 39-28 and were able to stay close due to DACC making just 11 of 22 free throws.
Danville improves to (19-3 4-0) with the win while the Cobras drop to (16-4 2-2). PC will return to action on Saturday night with a 7:30 game at Rend Lake.
