TOP SPORTS STORIES OF 2019: #10 – Permian basketball advances to Sweet 16


As 2019 comes to a close, we’ll be taking a look at some of the Basin’s top sports stories of the year.

We begin our countdown with the Permian boy’s basketball, which enjoyed another successful season.

The Panthers finished the year 27-8 (8-2), winning a district title in the process.

Once in the postseason, MOJO secured wins over El Paso Socorro, Arlington Martin, and El Paso Americas to advance to the Sweet 16.

Permian faced Denton Guyer in the Region I Semifinal. The Wildcats came into the match-up ranked as the #2 team in the state for Class 6A.

The Panthers, though, proved to be a tough test for them. With 5:30 left in the contest, the two sides were tied at 33. Guyer ultimately made just enough plays down the stretch to advance with a 42-36 win.
