After earning their first district victory of the season, the Plaquemine Green Devils returned home to host rival Tara and dominated the visiting Trojans 76-52.

Darius Jackson lead the way in scoring with 16 points, followed by Wayne Toussant and Keandre Randall each with 13, A.J. Riley with 10, Herb Thomas with seven and Henry Spriggs with six.

Randall was assist leader for the Devils with seven, followed by Thomas and Toussant each with four.  Trajan Butler totaled a team-high five steals in the win.
