Penn Jr.
Coastal Bend survived a long scoring drought in the second half, but the Cougars could do nothing about Panola's Lanell Henry after the break and it cost them a chance at the tournament's first big upset.

Henry scored 13 of his 15 points in the second half, including a rim-rattling dunk to tie the game late, and East No. 3 seed Panola rallied for a 70-66 win over South No. 6 seed Coastal Bend on Tuesday at the Region XIV Conference Basketball Tournament at Centenary College's Gold Dome.

Panola (23-8) advances to meet Angelina at 3 p.m. on Thursday in the quarterfinals. Coastal Bend ends its season with an 8-17 record.

Panola led by as many as nine points in the first half, but Coastal Bend cut the deficit to 31-25 when Royce Hunter drained a 3-pointer for the Cougars just before the break.

A triple by Coastal Bend's Charlie Callier with 17:15 to play moved the Cougars in front, and Coastal Bend used a modest 9-2 run to build a 46-40 lead before the lid slammed shut on the Cougars' end of the court and Henry heated up for the Ponies.

Henry hit a short jumper at the 13:23 mark to start his personal 7-0 run. Despite the outburst by Henry, the Cougars still managed to stay in front until a scoring drought that lasted more than four minutes let the Ponies stick around.

Henry's dunk on a strong baseline move to the hoop tied it at 62 apiece with 1:35 left. Coastal Bend used free throws by Hunter and Brian Payton to take a 66-64 lead, but the Ponies went in front to stay on an old-fashioned 3-point play by Carlos Nuttry with 22 seconds remaining.

Josh Williams, shooting for an injured Franklyn Penn Jr. (190-G-97) after Penn had come down with a clutch rebound, iced the game with two free throws with five seconds remaining.

Penn finished with 19 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Ponies.
