Last Tuesday, February 18, Brusly’s basketball Panthers lost to Baker 44-53 on the Buffalo’s court, but followed it up with a 57-54 win Friday night against Glen Oaks in the final scheduled district game of the season.
“It was a tough game, but it was a good win,” said Panther Head Coach Harold Boudreaux.
Senior Travin Thibodeaux managed a double-double against the Glen Oaks Panthers with 22 points and 15 rebounds.
The team wrapped up their season with a 4-8 district record and an overall record of 15-15 and are getting ready for the first round of playoffs this week.
The Panthers, in one of the toughest districts in the state, earned a #19 seed, making them the lowest seeded team from district 7-3A. Other teams from the local district are #3-seeded U-High, #5 Port Allen, #13 West Feliciana, and #15 Parkview Baptist.
“The kids are pumped up for playoffs,” said Boudreaux Sunday evening, before the playoff schedule was released. “We don’t know exactly who we’re preparing for yet, but we’re just going to hit fundamentals really hard and get ready for the next game.”
Monday evening, the team received word that they will travel to Vidalia Friday night for the first round of playoffs. The Panthers will take on the #14-seeded Vidalia Vikings at 6:30 p.m.
