Area Girls Prep Basketball Report for Friday, Feb. 8

It was a battle of traditional Class 4A powers Thursday night in New Orleans as defending state champion Warren Easton and Salmen hooked up in the latest edition of their ongoing rivalry.

For the second time this season, the Eagles emerged victorious, downing the Spartans 56-48. Warren Easton defeated Salmen 57-53 on Jan. 4 in the Allstate Sugar Bowl National Prep Classic at the Alario Center in Westwego.

Easton jumped on Salmen early, racing out to a 20-8 lead after one quarter and expanded the lead to 37-19 at halftime and it looked like it would be an easy night for the Eagles but the Spartans fought back.

Salmen (21-6) cut the deficit to 46-34 after three quarters and got within five points in the fourth quarter but could get no closer.

Cabria Lewis led Warren Easton (26-5) with 19 points, Casey Davis had 18 and Skylar Davis added 11 points for the Eagles.

Salmen played in the 4A state title game in 2017. Easton defeated Salmen in the 2015 state championship game while the Spartans downed the Eagles in the 2014 title game. Salmen also won the state championship in 2013 and played for the championship in 2012.

Both teams close out their regular seasons tonight with district games. Warren Easton travels to Karr for a 6 pm contest in District 9-4A while Salmen is at Lakeshore tonight at 6 pm in District 8-4A action.
