During last night’s game, the varsity boys basketball clinched the SEK league title. This is the fifth title out of the last six years for the Dragons. 

Senior Javon Grant had another big night. One of this season’s accomplishments was breaking 1,000 points. Last night, he outscored 2020 graduate Gavyn Elkamil, who was the all-time leading scorer at PHS. As of Feb. 16, Sports in Kansas recognized him as leading scorer in Kansas, averaging 31.5 points per game. At this time, Grant has accrued 1,422 points.

“It’s been one of my goals since freshman year,” Grant said. “I’ll ask the coach to open up the gym and I’ll come shoot by myself.”

Grant contributes some of his success to his coaches.  

“I have played a lot of basketball,” Grant said. “But, all the coaches who coached me have helped me get to this point.” 

Dragons will host Blue Valley Southwest for Substate on Wednesday, March 3.

“We just have to keep winning,” Grant said. “And for myself, I just have to keep doing what I’m doing and I’ll hold the record.”
