On night two of
the season, the
never trailed the
Panthers, as they
made claim to a
109-51 victory in
the Milton H.
Sophomore Decoya White led the top ranked Indians in scoring, knocking in five three point field goals on his way to a career high 17 point performance.
“It all starts with my teammates,” said White. “They put me into a position to just shoot horse shots. That’s what we call it here at Chipola when you’re wide open.”
White and the rest of the Indians saw plenty of open looks, connecting on fourteen three point field goals on the night.
“Decoya White is probably the best shooter on the team when it comes down to consistency,” said Chipola Head Coach Greg Heiar. “He does it everyday in practice.”
“You couldn’t ask for a better kid to have in the program. He really believes in what Chipola is all about and what our system is all about. He’s paid his dues and he deserves to have a night like this.”
Sophomore Clevin Hannah maintained his hot start to the season, hitting four of six from downtown and accounting for 13 points.
“Clevin, for the second night in a row, is doing what he does well,” said Heiar. “He was making shots. He took care of the ball and he defended the ball.”
Hannah, who was four of five last night from deep, is averaging 13.5 points per game and is eight of eleven from the 3pt line for the now 2-0 Indians.
“I like to shoot the ball and when I get an open look, I’m more than likely going to knock it down,” said Hannah with a grin on his face.
“Here at Chipola we have a lot of talent, a whole crazy load of talent. It’s just fun to play with players that can make plays.”
The “others” Hannah was referring to include sophomore Mario Little. Little scored 12 points in just 17 minutes of actions.
Freshman Vernon Teel and Casey Mitchell rounded out the double digit scorers for Chipola. They ended with 11 and 10 points, respectfully.
Chipola finishes up the weekend tomorrow evening by hosting Motlow State (TN). Motlow State was a winner Friday against Red Clay 85-72 in the first game of the Milton H. Johnson Classic.
