The Lufkin Panther boys basketball team won their final home game 61-31 against the Oak Ridge War Eagles. Despite a point spread everyone thought would be much wider, the game was still one you would have to see to believe.
Scrambling after the ball as it rolls through the key during the final minutes of the game after a missed goal is not classy, but it was exciting. When it is your last season, you leave it all on the court. No matter what it looks like.
As the boys prepare for their final game of the season against Conroe, who sits at the bottom of district standings, the excitement is building. It means playoffs are just around the corner.
