Navarro’s Bulldogs aren’t just hot.
They’re on fire.
The Dawgs ripped their third team in their past four games Saturday afternoon at the Wolens SEC, where they are 3-0 in 2020 with three resounding victories.
The latest victim was Lamar State-Port Arthur, which made a long trip north just to be left in Navarro’s wake during a 95-70 romp that was over almost as soon as it had begun.
It was the second consecutive 90-point game for the Bulldogs, who ran past Victoria 98-64 on Wednesday night. Navarro had to slow down in the final minutes to avoid scoring 100 points in both games.
The Dawgs led 55-33 at halftime on Saturday.
Lamar State led 6-5 and then the Bulldogs took off running and gunning, hitting 3-pointers like they were easy shots all afternoon,
They finished the game with 10 treys and none of the five starters hit a long one.
German Kasanzi made 3-of-5 and Akol Mawein hit 3-of-5 3s to lead the way and Jakobe Dill went 2-for-4 and Sherman Robinson made 2-of-5 from beyond the arc as those four players came off the bench to drop in 10-of-19 3-pointers to account for 30 of Navarro’s points.
Mawein, who hadn’t played since Dec. 7, led the Bulldogs with 22 points, hitting 8-of-12 from the floor, and he completed an impressive double-double with 10 rebounds, and also blocked two shots.
Kasanzi scored 13 points on 4-for-7 shooting and the Bulldogs scorched the nets all afternoon, shooting 59.3 percent (35-59) in the rout.
Dravon Clayborn had a monster game, doing it all. He scored 13 points (5-of-10 from the floor) and handed out 11 assists while making three steals and grabbing six rebounds.
Souleymane Doumbia, Navarro’s 7-footer from the Ivory Coast, scored 14 points and pulled down 10 rebounds and set the tone for the day by blocking eight shots.
The Dawgs blocked 11 during the game. They pulled down 43 rebounds Saturday after grabbing 55 against Victoria, dominating their home backboards for a mind-boggling 98 rebounds in their past two games — both conference wins.
