TAMPA -- Florida teams are still trying to figure out a way to get past the Plant Panthers. Plant convincingly defeated North Port by a score of 66-28 which was actually 54-18 after one of the most impressive first halves of basketball I've ever seen by this locked-in Plant team. If they continue playing like they can and have, they will prove to be very difficult to beat as their only loss came to an Arkansas team just after Christmas. They've now won 19 in a row and sit at a 28-1 record that they bring into their Elite 8 Regional Final matchup with Boone on Friday evening (Be there!).

On Tuesday night, the Panthers set the tone early and often. Even as early as the starting lineups when you see Coach Mahon at the end of the tunnel pumping up the girls with their intro handshakes. And then the first play from scrimmage, a three-point play from Kendal Cheesman with some great ball movement by the Plant team. The momentum would never shift after that basket. Plant is not playing around until they reach their ultimate goal, but they are taking it one game at a time
