One had to figure the (8-3) West Monroe Rebels would come out swinging as the 12th seeded underdogs on the road against No. 5 Zachary Friday night, and the Rebels did just that by taking a 10-0 lead into the fourth quarter. Unfortunately for West Monroe, Zachary scored 20 unanswered points in the final frame to escape with another instant classic over the Rebels.
