In one of the most hyped early season matchups of the young season, defending 6A champion Derby went to McPherson and handed the Bullpups their first loss of the year, 47-35.
McPherson was held to just four field goals in the first half, all three pointers, as Derby kept the Pups to just 4 points in the paint for the entire game.
Oregon State commit Kennedy Brown lead the Panthers with 11 points and 9 rebounds for the game. She was one of three Panthers to score in double figures, part of a balanced attack leading to the victory. Sydney Nilles matched Brown with 11 while Aaliyah Myers added 10. Grace Pyle paced the Bullpups with 10 points off the bench.
