Permian was able to jump out to an early lead thanks to some hot shooting by DeModric Bars to put the Panthers up five.
Cooper would quickly respond with a bucket by Chuck Gilliard to cut the Permian lead down to three.
Then a give-and-go between Gilliard and Donovan Robinson would cut the Panthers' lead down to just two points a while later.
Unfortunately for the Coogs that would be as close as they would get. Permian would eventually pull away with a big third quarter and pick up a 75-56 victory.
