The Park View boys basketball team finished the 2019-20 regular season Monday night on a high note — winning their sixth consecutuve game and second game of the week.

After defeating Franklin 57-42 on Wednesday, the Dragons were set to travel to Southampton for the regular season finale on Friday, but that game was postponed due to wet and windy weather in the region. No matter — the Dragons made the trip Monday and took care of business by defeating the Indians 69-57 to finish out the Tri-Rivers District regular season.

Franklin 42

On Wednesday the Dragons hosted the Franklin Broncos in South Hill. The first half was a competitive affair with the Dragons eking out a two-point lead going into the locker room.

PV won the first period by a single point, 11-10, thanks to a seven-point effort by junior guard Josh Boyd, who would go on to lead all scorers with a game-high 23 points. L’Anthony Joyner and Darius Hyman added two points each for Park View in the frame. Kenaz Jones, Derrick Perry and Sam Lyons provided the offense for the Broncos.

PV once again outscored Franklin by a single point in the second period, winning the frame 16-15. Joyner scored six of his 14 points in the second and Hyman added four with Adam Crabel and Anthony Gardner each hitting a trey. Jones, Perry, Myroen Barret, and Jahmajae Bynum scored for SHHS.

Coming into the second half with a narrow two-point lead, the Dragons stepped it up defensively and held the Broncos to just 17 points the rest of the way. Franklin scored 10 in the third and seven in the fourth while Park View posted 14 and 16, respectively, for the win.

J. Boyd scored 10 points for Park View in the third and six points in the fourth with the hot hand. Joyner added six points in the half with Hyman, Crabel, Gardner and Eli Fadool adding two each for Park View.

Park View 69, 
Southampton 57

After battling to a 26-26 halftime tie on the road against the Southampton Indians on Monday night, the Park View Dragons put the hammer down in the second half and pulled away for a 69-57 win. Park View needed this win for numerous reasons, not the least of which was to secure a home game to open the Tri-Rivers District tournament set to start tonight (Wednesday, Feb. 12).

Both teams battled fiercely in the first half with Park View winning period one by seven points and SHHS winning the second period by the same margin. Josh Boyd led Park View with seven of his team-high 19 points in the first half. Darius Hyman (2), TJ Alexander (3), Latavion House (4), Anthony Gardner (2), and AJ Bracey (2) rounded out the scoring for the Dragons.

Southampton’s Ah’Launtae Outlaw would lead all scorers in the game with 24 points, 12 of which came in the first half. Jimmie Reed Jr. added two points and Dale Vick had four for Southampton at the half.

After the break, the Dragons turned up the wick on the offensive and defensive sides of the court. Park View hammered the rim for 20 points in the third period and 23 points in the fourth while holding the Indians to 15 points in each of the two frames.

PV’s Darius Hyman found his range for 10 points in the second half while Boyd added 13. Latavion House caught fire in the fourth, scoring nine points to go with the free throw he got in the third quarter for a game total of 10. TJ Alexander and AJ Bracey each added two to cap off the scoring for the Dragons.

Southampton got points from Outlaw (12) Vick (5), Kamari Scott (5), Reed (2) and Javen Johnson (2).

The Dragons shot a dismal 37% from the charity stripe in the game. One can imagine that head coach Danny Watkins will have these young men at the free throw line for a large portion of practices coming into the TRD tournament.
