Class 6A Playoffs: St. Martin vs. Petal
Really good first round match-up between two seed St. Martin and three seed Petal.
Petal escapes with a 60-58 victory, but what a coaching job to keep a pair of Dandy Dozen selections in check, even though it wasn’t quite enough. St. Martin Head Boys Basketball Coach Charlie Pavlus said, “You’re upset, obviously, when you walk in the locker room. And you’ve been doing this since last March, so it was anger at the beginning. We ultimately lost the game on an offensive rebound that we gave up. We just came out of the timeout, got to keep that big monster off the glass and we didn’t do that as a team. It’s not one person. And ultimately, at the end of the night No. 1 just refused to let those guys lose.”
The Yellowjackets conclude their 2020 season with an overall record of 17-12.
