Dillard girls edge Miami Country Day

Fort Lauderdale Dillard’s girls’ basketball team found itself without a bus ride to Hollywood Christian at the last minute Saturday night.

The players’ families, however, made sure the Panthers got there in time for their showdown with nationally ranked Miami Country Day at the MLK Super Showcase.

And now it’s Dillard that merits a national ranking.

Led by junior guard Jacaira Allen’s 20 points, 12 rebounds and five steals, Dillard knocked off Miami Country Day (20-2), ranked No.10 by MaxPreps, 66-62 in a thriller. The Panthers (19-1) led by as many as nine points in the second half before seeing the lead slip away briefly and finally securing the advantage for good with 56.1 seconds to go on a three-pointer by Courtney Parson, who finished with 13 points.

DIL (19-1): Paul 6, Frazier 7, Allen 20, Wyatt 6, Parson 13, Ti. Wilks 8, Grier 6. MCD (20-2): Lewis 17, Austin 2, Marshall 21, Jackson 2, Anyagaligbo 12, Berry 6. Half: DIL 31-28.
