LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - Larry Robinson scored 10 points and grabbed 11 rebounds and Bossier sent a packed Burton Coliseum home disappointed Saturday night as it defeated the hometown favorite Washington-Marion 42-39 for the Louisiana Class 4A boys basketball championship.

After trailing 25-21 at halftime, the Bearkats (27-10) shut down Washington-Marion (22-9) defensively, allowing the Chargin’ Indians to score just three points and tying the game a 28 apiece going into the fourth quarter.

Bossier scored the first six points of the fourth quarter and held off a Washington-Marion comeback to win its second title in school history.

The Chargin’ Indians had a chance to tie the game with a 3-point attempt in the final seconds, but the shot never hit the rim, and Bossier grabbed the rebound and ran out the clock.

Larry Robinson was named the game’s most outstanding player. Tyrese English led the Bearkats in scoring with 14 points.

Cody Stansbury was Washington-Marion’s leading scorer as he shot 3 of 5 from the 3-point line and finished with 11 points. DeMarcus Vital added 10.
