Polytech Stay Perfect In Conference, Downs CR
The Polytech boys basketball team remained undefeated in conference play after they defeated Ceasar Rodney 66-52 Wednesday night. The win improves the Panthers to 11-1, while the loss drops the Riders to 6-7.

CR would take a 11-6 lead into the second quarter, but the Panthers would respond there. Led by their senior standout Juwan Gray, Poly would fight back to take the lead. Gray would pour in a team high 16 as Poly would take a 23-21 lead into the lockers rooms. The second half the Panthers would keep up the pressure as their lead continued to grow. Devaugh Mallory would find the shooting touch as he would add 13 points while the Panthers would go on to close it out for the win.
