Dragon JVs top Windsor, Sussex / February 07, 2018
The Windsor jayvee basketball team came to South Hill knowing that they faced a difficult if not impossible task to defeat the Park View Jayvee Dragons. It turned out to be worse than expected.

The Park View squad was just too big, too fast and too well coached for the Windsor team. The Dukes played hard and never gave up but almost from the tip there was no chance.

PV jumped out to an early lead as Derrick House lit up the scoreboard for 10 points, as many as the Dukes would score on the night. Latavion House got three, Jack Janson and Dontavious Wilson added two each and Adam Crabel added a free throw as the Dragons won the period 20-3.

Things only got worse for Windsor in the second as the stifling PV defense bottled them up and held them to just a single point. Meanwhile Dontavious Wilson (6 pts.), Jaheim Lewis (3 pts.), Amarion Taylor (4 pts.) and E. Fadool (4 pts.) combined to put the Dukes in a deep hole from which they wouldn’t be able to climb.

After the break the PV boys continued the onslaught, holding Windsor to single digits yet again. Balanced scoring and continued defensive pressure allowed PV to extend their lead to 51-7 by the end of the period.

The fourth period was more of the same as PV took an easy win, 60-10.

PVHS 47, Sussex 37

Park View continued its sterling season Friday night, handing the Tigers of Sussex Central High a 47-37 loss at PVHS.

The Tigers started strong, winning the opening tip and scoring the first points of the game as K. Jones got his only points for the night on the first possession. PV’s Lanthony Joyner drew a foul on the ensuing possession and hit one of two at 5:53 and then E. Tisdale put the Dragons on top with a bucket off an offensive rebound. The next several moments saw a furious run and gun for both teams, although both teams struggled to convert on their fast break opportunities.

The first quarter ended with Park View in the lead, 10-8. Both teams hit a bit of a dry spell the first minute or two of the second. The first score for the quarter didn’t come until the 5:00 minute mark when J. Clark hit a trey to extend the Tiger lead to five.

Derrick House had an answer for that, however, as he hit a trey of his own just 10 seconds later to keep the Dragons close. The next score came courtesy of a trey by Tiger J. Rose at 4:12. Once again the Dragons had the answer and L’Anthony Joyner got a field goal and drew a foul. He stepped to the line and calmly sunk the bucket to keep the Dragons on track.

Adam Crabel got Park View’s next bucket, a putback on an offensive rebound in the trenches. After two scores by Sussex, it wasn’t until the 35 second mark that Derrick House stepped up with another clutch three to cut the Sussex lead to one, 20-19, as the teams headed to the locker room.

The second half saw Park View step up the pace. House hit for two lightning-quick treys and suddenly the Dragons were in possession of a three-point lead. Joyner added another deuce on a beauty of a play. L. House hit Crabel in stride on a fast break and he couldn’t complete the lay-up, but Joyner was there for the tip-in follow up showing that tip drills are not a waste of time. Sussex was finally able to rally an answer at 4:40 when J. Clark hit a trey to cut the lead back to two with 4:40 left in the third.

It didn’t seem possible but the action actually picked up in the fourth. PV scored a point as Joyner went to the line at 5:35 and again Crabel got an offensive rebound and scored on the missed second free throw. The Tigers would hit four treys in the fourth with the first bomb coming from Clark at 4:50. Next J. Rose hit a trey for the visitors 10 seconds later at 4:40. The rim went cold for the Tigers, though, and PV got hot.

Joyner got a deuce at 3:25 followed by another from D. House. With the score standing at 40-31, Rose dropped in another long bomb triple to cut the PV lead to six. Amarion Taylor hit his only points of the night at 2:17 to extend the lead for the Dragons. Clark got yet another three pointer for the Tigers at 2:00 but this would prove to be their last points as the PV defense held them scoreless for the last two minutes.

Crabel added a breakaway lay-up with eight seconds left to seal the deal for Park View. Final score 47-37.
