The Navajo High School girls opened their basketball season last week.
The Lady Indians lost to Erick on Tuesday, 39-28. Analea Cobb, Emmy Cobb and Amber Gibbons paced the Lady Indians with seven points each. One look at the stat line of this game and a discrepancy in the number of foul shots taken in this game stands out. Navajo shot a total of four free throws in this game. Erick shot 20.
Navajo continued to struggle against Lawton Christian in the first half. The Lady Indians were down 24-23 at halftime. “We came out of that locker room a different team,” said Coach David Doss.
That may be the understatement of the year from any coach in any sport. Navajo, outscored Lawton Christian 27-7 in the third quarter and 17-3 in the fourth.
Navajo closed the game on the winning side of a 67-35 lopsided thumping of Lawton Christian. Emmy Cobb’s numbers jump off the score books. Cobb ended the game with 30 points. Cobb was perfect from the free throw line and hit four shots from behind the arc.
Amber Gibbons pumped in nine points all on three-pointers and Tabitha Armstrong led the team with five steals.
Next action for Navajo will be tonight at home against Indiahoma. The Navajo Junior high plays at 4 p.m. followed by the high school at 6:30 p.m.
It is Military appreciation Night and all military will get in free and be recognized at the game.
