The New Iberia boys' basketball team fell to Ponchatoula, 63-48, in the Division I Non-Select state championship game.

"I have to give credit to Ponchatoula," New Iberia head coach Chad Pourciau said. "They're an outstanding basketball team. They deserve all the credit. They thoroughly outcoached me today. They were ready and prepared. We weren't, and that ultimately falls on me."

This was the Yellowjackets' (30-4) first appearance in a title game. Senior Wayne Randall-Bashay finished with 18 points in the loss.
