Bulldogs smother BPCC, 65-52

BOSSIER, La. — German Kasanzi and Tyrese Patterson each scored 14 points Wednesday as Navarro defeated Bossier Parish 65-52 in a Region XIV East Zone game at Billy Montgomery Gymnasium.

Kasanzi hit 5-of-7 shots from the floor, including 4-of-5 from three-pointers as coach Grant McMillian’s Bulldogs surged to their third straight win, fourth in their last sixth and moved into a second-place tie with Kilgore, TVCC and Panola.

The Bulldogs knocked down 11 threes for a second straight league game.

Patterson issued a team-high six assists and made two steals for NC, which opened up zone play by handing BPCC only its third homecourt loss of the season.

The Bulldogs shot 42.6 percent from the floor (23-of-54) and 34,4 percent of their three-point tries (11-of-32). NC hit only 42 percent (8-of-19) from the foul line.

Navarro scraped 41 rebounds, blocked eight shots and limited the Cavaliers to a season-low 52 points — 30 points below their 17-game scoring average. Souleymane Doumbia, Brian Washington and Dravon Clayborn combined to account for 25 boards in the effort.
