Former Cajun Boyd to coach at Acadiana Prep
OPELOUSAS - Brad Boyd, who starred at Acadiana Prep early in his basketball career, has joined the school's coaching staff as an assistant coach for boys basketball.

Boyd was a student at Prep before he transferred to St. Thomas More.

Boyd went on to star at the University of Louisiana, where he was a member of the Ragin' Cajun 1,000 point club (1,130).

He set the career 3-point record (271) and the Cajundome assist record (17) for a single game, one away from the school record set in 1975.

Boyd joins the Prep staff after spending a season in the American Basketball Association with the Cajun Pelicans from Baton Rouge.

Brad Boyd (3) looks inside for a teammate during the Cajuns' Sun Belt victory over North Texas.


LAFAYETTE - It should have been a night that everyone remembered Brad Boyd's signature shot.

It was a typical high-arching three-pointer, one he launched from the left wing with 16:58 remaining in Thursday's battle with North Texas. When it ripped through, UL Lafayette had its 35th player in the school's storied basketball history with 1,000 career points.

But on this night, none of the 5,116 fans at the Cajundome left talking about Boyd's historic shot.

They all left talking about one of Boyd's passes, one that typified a Cajun 94-81 win that wasn't nearly that close.

"People that don't watch us play much are always talking about me being a good shooter," Boyd said, "but I'd rather be known for good passes. I work hard at being a good passer."

The work paid off in one fleeting, highlight-reel assist that literally had Cajun fans dancing in the Dome aisles.

The home team was already on a 10-0 run nearing the midpoint of the second half when UL senior Laurie Bridges got a hand on a pass on the Cajuns' defensive end. He wasn't able to get full control, but he was able to bat the ball toward midcourt and a trio of streaking Cajun teammates.

Orien Greene could have grabbed the loose ball, but at the last second he saw Boyd coming the other direction and the trajectories of Boyd and the ball intersecting. He continued his streak toward the Cajun basket, as did Dwayne Mitchell.

Boyd continued toward the ball, and when he got there fired a perfect reverse, two-hands, between-the-legs, bow-at-the-waist pass to a streaking Mitchell for one of his five second-half thunder dunks.

Lee Venable, Justin Venable, Chris Gannon, T-Boy Hamilton, Bill Delahoussaye and every other former Cajun football deep-snapper would have been proud.

"The guys are always joking in practice that I've got eyes in the back of my head," Boyd said after his 12-point, three-assist, two-steal game. "But I knew it was on a fast break and it was rolling to me. It would have taken an extra second or so to pick it up and turn around."

Mitchell was on the receiving end of the pass, throwing down two of his game-high 24 points. The majority of those came on rim-rattling slams that one by one broke the will of a North Texas squad that was 26 points down in the final six minutes.

The Cajuns shot 62.9 percent in the second half - almost double the first-half performance - while forcing a UNT season-high 23 turnovers and picking off 13 steals, the most the Mean Green had allowed all season.

In fact, UL Lafayette's first three baskets of the second half came off turnovers, effectively turning a three-point 37-34 halftime lead into a runaway.

"Coach (Robert) Lee did the scout report this week," Boyd said, "and he said they were prone to turnovers. If we denied the ball, we'd get them in a lot of one-on-one situations and we'd be able to get some steals."

One shocking number: In the first nine minutes of the second half, North Texas got off a grand total of six shots.

"After Dwayne's third or fourth dunk," Boyd said of those minutes, "maybe they were thinking that we can't compete right now. They pretty much shut it down and started getting ready for their home game later on."

The Cajuns return the visit to Denton on Feb. 23, five games from now. But if Thursday's athletic performance is sustained, the Sun Belt Conference's West Division may already be decided by that point.

"We're kind of like one of those Kentucky teams," Boyd said, "one that's got five or six guys averaging 10 or 12 points and game, all of them able to score and all of them getting three, four, five assists a game."

The Cajuns had 21 assists and 16 turnovers, remaining the only team in the Sun Belt with more assists than turnovers this year.

"This was a big statement for us," Boyd said. "If we're playing at our strongest, I think we're better than anybody in the league. When we "D" up and get steals, we're hard to stop."
