A lead at halftime. No points in the third quarter. A furious comeback attempt in the fourth. And ultimately an overtime loss and the end to the season.
It was that kind of night for the Navarre Raiders in a 42-37 loss to Niceville in the semifinal round of the district boys basketball tournament in Gulf Breeze.
The Raiders (12-13) led 19-13 at the half but couldn’t buy a shot in third and trailed 26-19 at the end of it. The two teams went to OT tied at 35-35.
