BREAUX BRIDGE (KATC) – Breaux Bridge basketball coach Chad Pourciau speaks highly of Seth Alexander.

“I have twin boys, if they turn out anything like him, I’ll be extremely happy.”

Alexander has a 3.8 GPA, takes mostly college credits, is funny, polite, and a heck of a basketball player.

In Friday’ 61-58 win over Bossier in the 4A championship Alexander scored 23 points. He hit 19 free throws including the two that gave the Tigers the lead late in the fourth quarter.

Alexander was named the state tournament’s Most Outstanding Player. He averaged 14.5 points, 5 assists and 5 rebounds per-game this season. He was the undisputed leader of the team. But it wasn’t always the case.

“He sat on the bench every single game as a freshman, he dressed out,” said Pourciau. “He took over as our point guard as a sophomore. Each year he’s grown and grown. He turned into a great human being.”

“Learning how to win for me was the biggest thing that yea,” said Seth. “Transitioning from junior high to high school, that’s a big difference. Being able to sit on the bench and watch the varsity team, that was a great thing for me.”

Seth has played the past few seasons with his younger brother Dalton. Something he has cherished especially this season as the two helped lead Breaux Bridge to it’s first boys basketball state championship.
