Strong comeback from MLK leads to three-point win over Imhotep

The Martin Luther King High Cougars defeated the Imhotep Charter Panthers in a nail biting 55-52 win Thursday night.

Imhotep held the lead during the first half but a strong showing during the second half put the MLK Cougars ahead with guard Tyheem Harmon scoring 18 points.

The Panthers attempted a late game rally coming within two points with less than five seconds left in regulation. A foul and free throw by MLK senior Sam Forman put the Cougars up by three to seal the win.
