Meanwhile, despite 24 points from Gary Johnson, the Destrehan boys’ basketball team fell to East St. John last Friday, 54-45.
The Wildcats trailed by 14 points in the fourth quarter, but went on an 8-0 run to cut the East St. John lead to 48-42. However, the Wildcats would not get any closer as East St. John closed out the game on a 5-0 run.
"We played hard but not under control," Destrehan head coach Todd Bourg said. "We did not execute on the offensive end and on transition defense we gave up a few easy baskets.
"The second quarter was the deciding factor. We got outscored by 10."
Johnson added seven rebounds to go with his 25 points.
The Wildcats will host Higgins this Friday at 7:30 p.m. before traveling to Hahnville on Tuesday, Jan. 24. Tip off is scheduled for 7:15 p.m.
