The Cowboys hit the road for a conference clash against the Panthers of Dudley High School. Southwest dominated the first match-up 91-58 in December, and have kept a perfect record on the year. The Panthers came into tonight’s tilt on a 3 game slide and were looking to knock off the unbeaten Cowboys.
The Cowboys got on the board first with a 3 pointer, and the Panthers responded with a 4-0 spurt to claim their only lead on the night at 4-3 with 6:58 to go. Southwest scored seven straight points to get up 10-4 at the 4:33 mark. Dudley stopped the run with a bucket, but Southwest got another 5 quick points and it was 15-6 at the 3:22 point. The rest of the frame was back and forth, but Keyshaun Langley’s 15 first quarter points helped the Cowboys to a 23-13 lead.
The second frame started with another quick 5-0 run to make the margin 28-13 a minute into the period. The Panthers did everything to answer the Southwest runs, but it wasn’t enough as the margin slowly would build to the halftime tally of 46-26.
The third frame got a bit choppy, but despite the discombobulating, the Cowboys built the margins out to 25, but the Panthers refused to break. Dudley fought well and kept the margin at 68-45 going into the final stanza.
The Cowboys bench closed the game out well, as they were able to keep the Panthers in check throughout. Southwest pulled out a 86-58 conference win on the road. The Panthers were paced by Tyler Young’s 16 points.
The Cowboys were highlighted by; Keyshaun Langley with (31, 6 Asts, 5 Stls, 3 Rebs), Christian Martin with (15, 3 Rebs, 2 Asts, 2 Stls), Cam Thompson with (10, Ast). Jayden Turner chipped in 10 Rebounds to go with his 8 points, and the Cowboys stay perfect on the year.

Southwest turns right around and will travel to square off rival Northwest tomorrow night.
