Brock Ravet was as good as advertised.
The Kittitas senior, who already has signed with Gonzaga University, lit up the scoreboard for 36 points Friday night, dazzling a packed house at Hermiston High School as the Coyotes beat Nixyaawii 92-53 in a nonleague game.
“Ravet is unreal,” Golden Eagles coach Shane Rivera said. “You take his points away and it might be a game. They work hard. That’s a good team.”
Ravet scored the bulk of his points in the second and third quarters. He sat the final 2 minutes of the game.
“This was a lot of fun,” said Ravet, who played AAU basketball with a few of the Hermiston High School players when they were younger. “It’s good to see how we match up against other states.”
The Coyotes (18-1) led 47-23 at the half.
Justin Hudson added 19 points for Kittitas, which also shot 8 of 9 from the free-throw line.
Moses Moses led Nixyaawii (16-2) with 14 points, while Mick Schimmel added 12 and Magi Moses 10.
“Any time you play a team like that, you go back to the drawing board and see what we need to do,” Rivera said. “We really haven’t been challenged much. Win or lose, it was a good experience for our guys. It was a great atmosphere. We aren’t used to playing in front of crowds like this.”
