|Vidalia, Monterey begin playoffs|
Vidalia High begins its Class 3A state title defense in Baton Rouge as the Vikings visit Redemptorist High School Friday.
Meanwhile, Monterey's boys visit Negreet in a Class B first-round playoff contest.
Despite winning District 3-3A, the Vikings are on the road as the No. 22 seed against the No. 11 Wolves.
Vidalia, 14-10, defeated Avoyelles Parish Saturday in a tiebreaker game Saturday in Pineville.
Avoyelles (18-9), which went 1-2 against Vidalia, is ranked No. 16.
Redemptorist won District 7-3A for the third consecutive year, defeating Parkview Baptist to conclude the regular season.
Redemptorist returned two starters (6-foot-4 junior Gervaughn Magee and 5-8 senior Nico Talbert) from last year's team which lost to Marksville 71-67 in the first round of the playoffs.
In addition to graduating seniors, the Wolves lost last year's 7-3A MVP, JR Harris, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in football and has transferred to Southern Lab.
Magee, the younger brother of former Istrouma standout Ronald Magee, leads the Wolves with 20.0 scoring average. Christian Life transfer Taylor Armstrong, a 6-3 junior, is at 12.0.
Seniors Raymond Bowen and Troy Bibbins moved into the RHS lineup. Bowen (6-0) was the Wolves' sixth-man last year. Bibbins (6-0) is the younger brother of former University High girls Whitney Bibbins, who now plays for Tulane.
Two other juniors, 6-0 Norvel Shelby and 5-10 Seth Jackson, also play key roles.
Monterey High's boys basketball team travels to the Louisana-Texas border for a Class B first round playoff contest as the Wolves face Negreet.
"We've got a long trip, but hopefully that won't be a factor," said Monterey head coach Eric Richard.
The Wolves finished 16-10 on the season and are reared No. 19 in Class B.
Negreet is 15-16 and is rated No. 14.
"They are a formidable opponent, but we feel like we match up well with them," Richard said. "They are fundamentally sound, shoot the ball well, but not really big. They lost a few games, but they scored a lot of points in those games."
Two of Negreet's losses came to top-rated Zwolle in District 4B. The only other district loss Negreet had was to Florien, which they beat in their second meeting.
The winner of the Monterey-Negreet game will face the winner of No. 3 Hornbeck and No. 30 Grand Lake.
