Biloxi Indians two wins away from the 6A State basketball championship

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Seber Windham and his Biloxi Indians are two wins away from winning back-to-back State Championship titles. It won't be easy. First up, Starkville... a team that features two big man, at 6-8 and 6-5.

Coach Windham believes experience can overcome Starkville's height advantage saying, "I feel like these young men have been up there last year, actually young men going to their third straight to get to Jackson. Experience means so much this time of year and I feel like these young men have really come together at the right time."

Jeremiah Dunnings runs the Indians show, netting 17.7 points and 4.3 assists per game.

"I think we've got all the ingredients, rebounds, play together, play defense and move our feet and we do fine. I think we'll come out with two victories and be state champions, hopefully," Dunnings said.

6 foot 6 senior Guy Payne will be counted on to provide some muscle inside the paint. He averaged 11.3 points and almost 8 rebounds an outing.

Corey Jackson brings more firepower to the Indians attack having averaged 10 points per game and 7.2 rebounds.

Shakeel Borel says the seniors know what it takes to win a state championship and the Indians are hungry saying, "I'm a senior this year. I want it for us and all the other players, these coaches. We worked hard this year. We've got to get us another ring. Got to do this for the city."

Biloxi will love a rematch against Meridian, but a possible Wildcats-Indians final won't happen if the Indians fail to get past Starkville on Wednesday.
