Farley earns MVP honors in Sweet 16

Terrance Farley had a big game at Rupp Arena Thursday afteroon and earned MVP honors against Rockcastle County.

Terrance Farley continued his outstanding play in the post-season Thursday afternoon against Rockcastle County at the Sweet 16.

The 6-foot-10 center was perfect from the field (6-6) and 3-4 from the free throw line for 15 points, 10 rebounds and 3 blocked shot in a 69-55 victory in the opening round of the Kentucky State Tournament.

Farley was named Most Valuable Player of the game for his performance and continued to show solid improvement in his game. He established post-position against Rockcastle throughout the game and made several impressive scoring moves on the block.

Despite picking up two quick fouls in the first minute and change of the second half, Farley led the charge for the Panthers once again as he had in the Sixth Region playoffs.

"Terrance put us on his back against DeSales and hit some key free throws today," PRP head coach Dale Mabrey said. "He's constantly been getting double and triple teamed and he's got to get a lot stronger but he's battling right now."

"We were pumped before the game and Coach Mabrey told us to calm down before the game," Farley said. "We've become a family this season and we're really playing well right now.

PRP junior point guard JuJuan Spillman played a key role during the opening minutes of the second half and scored 7 big points to extend the Panthers 33-28 half-time lead.

Spillman finished with 16 points, 3 rebounds and 3 steals but had just one assist while commiting 4 turnovers.

PRP will face Covington Catholic Friday night in the quarterfinals.
