Aug eliminated by Scotlandville in 5A Semis

st augSt Aug’s hopes of winning a state title after the departure of Craig Victor, are over, by a whisker.

Ezekiel Brown made both ends of a one and one with nine seconds to play as two time 5A champion Scotlandville beat the Purple Knights 47-46 Tuesday night at Burton Coliseum in Lake Charles.

Victor, an Arizona signee, transferred to Findlay Prep in Henderson, Nevada before the start of the school year.

St Aug trailed 37-30, before mounting a fourth quarter comeback. Marcel Daniels hit a three to draw St Aug within one at 45-44. Marlon Watts then made a steal and dunk to give St  Aug the lead.

Scotlandville, the number one seed, can win its third straight basketball state title Friday night against the winner of Natchitoches Central vs Thibodaux.
