After a disappointing, last-second 57-54 loss to Surry on Dec. 3, Park View was looking for a comeback win and Appomattox Regional Governor’s School proved to be just the ticket. Park View dominated 92-37, Friday night at PVHS.

ARGS hung with Park View early in the first period as Bus Baker and Kevin Munroe combined for five treys but it wasn’t quite enough. Park View sophomore Latavion House hit three treys of his own and Jack Janson closed out the period with three straight deuces punctuated by a pair of free throws from Anthony Gardner as Park View ended the period with a 28-17 lead.

Park View turned up the wick on defense in the second period, holding the outmatched ARGS team to just eight points in the stanza. Meanwhile the offense was hitting on all cylinders as the lineup produced 29 points for a 57-25 lead at halftime.

The third period saw a continuation of defensive dominance by the Dragons as they once more held ARGS in check, limiting them to a deep trey by Dylan Darling. Meantime Park View put up an offensive highlight reel. At the 6:23 mark, Deandre Miles got clear of the ARGS defense for a dunk and was fouled in the process. Martavious Hendricks closed out the stanza with two straight treys from the corner and Park View led 76-28 as the stanza came to a close.

Kion Gilliam got a dunk in the fourth period and big Darius Hyman, working hard on the offensive boards, posted six of his 12 points in the frame as ARGS still couldn’t get anything going offensively. Park View held their opponents to just six points to close out the game with a 92-37 win.

The victory moved Park View’s record to 3-2 in the early going of the season.
