    After nearly two weeks without playing a game, the Lady Panthers stepped up their defensive effort in the second half to come away with a 55-43 home win over Spencer County Tuesday night.

    “The tale of two halves,” head coach Paul Stone said. “The first half, our defense was OK at times, but it wasn’t good on No. 35 [senior MacKenzie Myers]. The second half, we did a much better job of doubling her on the block. She walked several times because we did a better job of that. That was the difference in the game.”
