Kittens advance with victory
Grambling Lab, led by its intense pressure defense and highly efficient offense, raced to a 19-point lead after one quarter and never looked back on its way to a dominating 82-48 victory in the second round of the Class 1A playoffs.
The Kittens (22-1), ranked No. 1 in the state, forced 18 first-half turnovers, including 9 steals, while opening up a 46-17 lead at the half.
“You really can’t simulate (Grambling’s pressure) in practice,” Plain Dealing assistant coach John Johnson said.
