Port Washington had beaten Panthers just three days prior.
The Port Washington boys basketball team fell to the Plymouth Panthers in its home opener Tuesday night 57-39, just three days after a victory over Plymouth in the championship game of the Redwing Holiday Tournament at Sheboygan South.

The Port Washington boys basketball team held close all game against Nicolet, but struggled to put forth a consistent effort.
The game was as messy as a teenager's bedroom, and the mess finally caught up to the Port Washington Pirates.

Nicolet led for most of the game until Port Washington junior Sawyer Mosley sank a 3-pointer to give his team a 30-27 advantage. The Pirates built that lead Bunyan referenced but when Raheem Lemons made a three-point play, the Knights took a 41-39 lead they wouldn't give up. Port Washington senior Eric Graff hit a clutch 12-footer to bring …
