Morgan City High School boys basketball coach Brandon Harden likened No. 29 Morgan City’s Class 4A playoff contest with No. 4 Plaquemine Friday to resetting a PlayStation. The Tigers, who were defeated 50-29 by the Green Devils in Plaquemine in December while not at full strength, will now get an opportunity to redeem themselves.
