Navarre has no answer for Indians on senior night

Navarre basketball head coach Terry Posey was in his office late Friday night talking with the media about his team’s latest game.

It was a tough one. Arguably the toughest defeat of the year. Navarre had no answer for Choctaw, specifically, TCU signee Diante Smith, in a 92-51 loss to the Indians at home.

Smith outscored the Raiders by himself. He finished his night with 52 points, an effort highlighted by the 12 3-pointers he knocked down on a night in which it seemed he just wouldn’t miss.

Posey said after the game what everyone was likely thinking inside a near-packed gymnasium.

“Choctaw is good. Real good,” Posey said. “They played really well tonight. They shot the ball very, very well.”

Navarre found itself down 16-0 a little over midway through the opening quarter. It was 26-8 at the end of it.

The Raiders showed some fight in the second quarter after the rugged start.

Tim Brewer scored off a putback and Ezra McKenna knocked down a 3-pointer, cutting the Choctaw lead to 28-13.

Back-to-back shots by Elijah Proby, including a trey, pulled the Raiders within 30-18.

Navarre trailed 49-31 at halftime.
