The East Ascension boys basketball team wore green and yellow Gonzales uniforms Thursday night in honor of the 1957 state champions.
The Gonzales Bulldogs topped Baker 63-60 to win the Class A title in 1957.
East Ascension head coach Kenny Almond and his squad recognized members of the team prior to the tip-off Thursday.
It was a 1950s atmosphere on campus as a Chevy from the era was parked outside of the gym. Cheerleaders and dancers also donned attire from the period.
Director Erin Perdue led the choir in a performance of the Gonzales High alma mater before the game.
East Ascension went on to take an 84-42 win over Lutcher.
Devonte Fisher led the way with 16 points, including three three-pointers.
Tyler Wright finished with 15, Curtis Watts had 13 and Jamal Steward added 10.
The Spartans improved to a 15-7 record.
