Destrehan boys, girls fall in first round of playoffs
The basketball season came to an end for both the Destrehan boys and girls teams on Monday night after both were eliminated from the playoffs.
The Wildcats stormed out to a 14-2 lead in the first quarter, but Comeaux slowly began to chip into that margin. By halftime, Destrehan’s lead was 22-20
Comeaux tied the game on the first play of the third quarter and went on an 11-4 run to take control of the game.
Destrehan rallied with under 30 seconds left in the fourth on a jumper by Kevin Smith and a tip-in by Keigan Joseph to climb within seven points with 15 seconds left. Bryan Singleton hit a three pointer with six seconds left to cut the Comeaux lead to 47-44, but the Spartans iced the game at the line a play later.
Smith had 14 points for the Wildcats in the loss, while Singleton scored 12.
Meanwhile the Destrehan girls, who traveled to take on Ouachita, fell 50-36.
