ROCKVILLE- The Paint Branch Panthers dominated the Richard Montgomery Rockets 21-9 Friday night. The Panthers now ride a two-game unbeaten streak as they handed the Rockets their first loss of the season.

The Rockets put up a good defensive showing, but could not keep up the pressure in the second half.

“Leaving a very good team and a very well-coached team like RM in the game, and you have scoring opportunities, was a mistake, cause I knew they would make us pay for it,” said Panthers head coach Mike Nesmith.

Before last Thursday, the Montgomery County Public School system had never produced a WNBA Draft selection.

That changed when the Indiana Fever selected Maryland point guard and Paint Branch graduate Brene Moseley with the 21st overall pick in the 2016 WNBA Draft.

“I’m blessed and thankful to be drafted to the Indiana Fever,” said Moseley. “As a child I prayed to God to make it to the WNBA, so this has been a dream come true.”
