CALUMET TWP. | When it counted, Griffith played its best basketball on Thursday night.

The Times No. 7 Panthers used a 9-0 run in the fourth quarter to subdue Calumet 52-38.

With their best perimeter threat in foul trouble most of the night in sophomore guard Anthony Murphy, his brother Tremell stepped his game up, scoring a team-high 17, including 7-of-8 from the charity stripe.

Tremell also grabbed four boards and had three blocks.

On Senior Night, it was Calumet junior guard Anthony Harris who simply could not be stopped in the first half, as he scored 15 of his team's 23 points, including nine in the first quarter.

Harris also grabbed six boards and recorded three steals in the first 16 minutes as well.

Four other players scored two points apiece for the host Warriors (10-6) in the half.

Anthony Murphy played sparingly in the first half after picking up two quick fouls within the first five minutes of the game.

But the 3-pointer was working for the visiting Panthers (12-4), because they hit five in the half, which included two apiece by the senior starting duo at guard, Flint Powell and Rodney Lewis.

Tremell Murphy led Griffith in scoring with nine at the break.

Anthony Murphy picked up his third foul early in the third quarter and sat for most of it. Calumet was able to take advantage by cutting the lead to eight after three.

Griffith also committed eight turnovers in the third quarter.

The first six-and-a-half minutes of the fourth belonged to the Panthers by tightening up on offense and committing no turnovers during that stretch.

Harris led all scorers with 21 points.
