Donaldsonville High girls basketball coach Butch Little got his 700th career victory in a win over Jeanerette in the Breaux Bridge Tournament last week.

Little now has a career mark of 702-369 in boys and girls basketball since 1965 when he started his career at Maurepas High.

“We were 0-4 going into that game and of course we lost in the playoffs the year before,” Little said. “So I told them I had been waiting a while for this.”

The Tigers also benefited from the return of all-state guard Kendra Coleman, who missed the start of the season with a knee injury.

Little was East Ascension’s boys basketball head coach in 1980s.
