Bogalusa’s Lumberjacks were defeated by Phoenix, 75-66, on the road Friday in the final regular season game.
Jaylen Brickmore led the Lumberjacks with 22 points.
Chance Turner posted 16, and T.J. Peyton recorded 14.
Josh Taylor totaled eight points while DaJuan Powell, Quientay Henry and Jarvis Dawson all had two.
Bogalusa reached the Class 3A playoffs and will face off against Abbeville on the road Friday at 7 p.m.
“We are excited to return to the playoffs this year,” Bogalusa coach Randall Ginn said. “We view it as a step in our four-year plan. We made major improvements through quite a bit of adversity this year. Our leading scorer Jaylen Brickmore missed the first 14 games this year and our best defender Demarcus Spikes only played four games due to a broken foot.
“Our predominant class is sophomores who have gained a lot of playing experience this year. We are going to Abbeville to compete and represent our school in a positive manner.”
