QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“Our guys did a good job of getting Trevon the ball in the post. He was making strong moves, getting ‘and 1s’ or shooting two free throws. When he’s on a roll, we’ve got to get him the ball.” — Ellender coach Scott Gauthreaux said about Trevon Lewis’ 41-point performance on Friday night against Terrebonne.
