The Deltona High School Wolves Fall to the Dillard High School Panthers 56-44 in Florida Final Four Game
After a season filled with much excitement and a team lead by a dynamic duo of Blake and Evan Hinson, the team ran out of gas in their final game of the season. It was apparent throughout the game that they could not compete on the glass with the much bigger and athletic Dillard squad. The Dillard Panthers have 4 of their 5 starters listed at 6'5" or taller, which proved to be too much for the smaller Deltona Wolves.
Dillard collected 17 offensive rebounds in the game, and those extra field goal attempts allowed their lead to balloon in the final frame of the game.
Evan Hinson lead the way for Deltona with 10 points and Blake Hinson tallied 9 points. This was certainly not the way the brothers wanted their final high school season to end. Their father and head coach Denny Hinson, said that he went deep to the bench to look for answers, but there weren't any to be found against the opposition, Dillard High School.
All eyes will be on the then junior guard Blake Hinson next season, as he tries to lead the Wolves back to the final four, and hopefully beyond.
