Biloxi Brings Home The 5A Gold Ball To The Mississippi Gulf Coast

The Biloxi Indians relied on their leader Isaiah Canaan to put an end to Provine's two year rein as 5A State Champions.  Before the night ended, the senior would bag 19 points, grab 5 rebounds and dished out 8 assists in leading Biloxi under the win column in overtime.

Coach Seber Windham's club led 17 to 7 on a DeMontrey McCormick's trey.  The Provine Rams would run off 8 straight points and closed the gap 17-15after the first period.

The Indians and Rams traded buckets and Biloxi led 29 to 27 at the half.

Provine would gain control of the 3rd period and outscored the Indians 19 to 15.  Jalen Courtney began to dominate play inside the paint giving the Rams a 46-44 advantage heading into the final period.

Once again both clubs went toe-to-toe.  Trailing 57-55 and the game clock under a minute, Canaan delivered a super pass inside to Tevin Powe.  His bucket tied the game.

Both the Rams and Indians had a chance to win the game in regulation but came up empty.

Canaan and company would rule the four minute overtime period outscoring the Rams 11 to 6.

Coach Seber Windham and his 30 and 2 Biloxi Indians would claim the 5A State Championship netting an exciting 68-63 victory.  Isaiah Canaan was named the games Most Valuable Player.
