The shot heard around Louisiana on Friday night was made by guard Austin Veal.

Veal took the ball the length of the court in seven seconds to score, giving Zachary a 40-39 victory over Scotlandville in District 4-5A boys basketball action Friday night.

It was Scotlandville’s first official loss to a Louisiana team this season and is also the Hornets’ first district loss since 2010, said SHS coach Carlos Sample. A Hall of Fame game loss to Madison Prep a couple of weeks ago doesn’t count, according to the LHSAA.

Zachary High basketball coach Jonathan McClinton, with the help from assistant coach Brock Poydras and volunteers from the Broncos’ basketball team, led a group of 40 boys ages 5 to 14 in a weeklong basketball camp that ended Friday.

The campers learned about teamwork and picked up shooting, dribbling and passing skills. bbc 16 8bbc 16 7bbc 16 5bbc 16 2bbc 16 1

On Friday, a tournament was held with the younger boys competing on four-on-four teams and the older boys competing on five-on-five teams. The winning teams from each age division were awarded trophies.

The championship four-on-four team included Collin Ashford, Connor Campbell, Lee Reed and Laborn Wells, while the championship five-on-five team featured Caleb Ackman, Caleb Barfield, Sawyer Seguin, Ryan Ward and Chris White.

Also awarded were the campers who made the most free throws, lay-ups and hotshots during the week. A hotshot, as explained by McClinton, is when a player rotates through five positions in the floor while trying to make baskets.

“Each spot is given a point value, and we allow each player one minute to see how many points he can accumulate shooting from each position,” McClinton said.

Trophies were awarded to hotshot champions Ackman and Bennett Mathews; free throw champions Evan LeDoux and Chatwin Tate; and lay-up champions Asher Carter and Skyler LeDoux.

Two overall Camper of the Week trophies were given to the participant from the younger age division and participant from the older age division for working the hardest during the camp. Those winners are Evan LeDoux and Ackman.

All participants of McClinton’s youth basketball camp received a certificate of completion.
