Panther Valley expected to see the pressure.
The Panthers anticipated it so much that they prepared for Jim Thorpe's defensive attack for three straight days.
All that preparation didn't help, however, as Jim Thorpe's fullcourt 1-3-1 defense created numerous problems for Panther Valley.
The pressure produced the Olympians' first win of the season on Monday, a 51-35 Schuylkill League Division I triumph.
The Olympians, who stuck to the same defensive format for the entire 32 minutes, forced the Panthers into 27 turnovers in the game.
