2017 All-State Basketball Teams


Written for the LSWA
Paring down nominees and choosing an All-State team, regardless of the sport, is generally a tough job for a sportswriter. But then, there are the no-doubters, and Destrehan’s Cara Ursin and Scotlandville’s Ja’Vonte Smart certainly fill that description.
Each winners of their respective LHSAA title games last month and each named Outstanding Player of said title games, Ursin and Smart head the Class 5A All-State basketball teams as selected by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association.
The remainder of the girls’ first team includes McKinley’s Alexius Horne, Ponchatoula’s Hailey Giaratano, John Curtis freshman Jerkalia Jordan and Barbe’s Brandi Williams.
The first ever three-time Gatorade Player of the Year, Ursin averaged 28 points and 14 rebounds per game for the 35-0 Wildcats in her final campaign before heading off to Baylor. She also had more than six assists per game. Smart, a junior, also was named the state’s top basketball player with a scoring average of 25.1 to go with his 8.7 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 2.1 steals per game and is a two-time Gatorade Player of the Year.
The remainder of the boys team includes Chalmette’s 7-foot center Mitchell Robinson, Bonnabel’s TJ Collins, Natchitoches Central’s Brandon Rachal and HL Bourgeois’ Anthony Rainey.
Ursin’s coach Angi Butler, who is leaving the gym to focus on being an administrator next school year, was selected as the girls Coach of the Year in leading Destrehan to that perfect mark and defeating top-seeded Barbe in the 5A championship game.
Maybe the surprise of the 5A teams in the largest classification comes in the form of Landry-Walker’s Brian Gibson, who was named Coach of the Year on the boys side. To start February, his Chargin’ Bucs were 13-12 and on a three-game losing streak in District 8-5A. From there, the team won their final four regular-season games, entered the Class 5A playoffs as the 22nd-seed and made a run all the way to the state championship, making it look easy.
