Plenty of area teams in state basketball tourneys


The Louisiana High School Athletic Association unveiled the boys and girls high school basketball brackets Thursday and the Acadiana area is well-represented.

On the boys’ side, the area has 24 teams that qualified for the playoffs, while on the girls side there are 26 teams from the area to earn playoff berths.
The boys’ side of the bracket is most interesting as a result of so many area teams either being matched up against each other or could possibly meet each other in the second round.
In Class 5A, No. 3 seed Comeaux will play host to No. 30 seed Lafayette High and No. 7 seed Westgate will play host to Carencro, while in Class 4A No. 4 seed Northside will play host to Teurlings Catholic and No. 2 seed St. Thomas More will play host to No. 31 seed St. Martinville.
The No. 2 seeds by St. Thomas More on the boys’ side and Vermilion Catholic on the girls’ side are the highest seed of any boys and girls team from the area that’s in the playoffs.
For more on the releasing of the high school playoff brackets, read Friday’s edition of The Daily Advertiser.
