    The Panthers shot 60 percent from the floor, while depositing 50 percent of their three-point attempts on Tuesday night to go away with the District 3-AAA victory.

    Campbell County could only manage 20 percent from behind the arc, as Powell won, 66-45.

    “We just kind of ran into a buzz saw, head on,” Campbell County head coach Matt Housley said. “The Payne kid, a tough kid. The first one he hit in the game, 2 or 3 feet behind the line with a hand in his face, those are just good shots.”
