Season:

Valley's Caleb Carter too much for Coronado's twin towers of Louder and Walker.
Valley 68, Coronado 62

Vikings avenge embarrassing 14-point loss to Cougars from the beginning of the season.
Valley 70, Coronado 66

Foothill runs its system better than any team in the region.
Foothill 70, Desert Pines 56

Brannon Cresanto showed why he's a star in scoring 22 points in a 15-point win over Silverado to grab the No. 1 seed.
Foothill 65, Desert Pines 55

Silverado knocks off defending state champs in a close battle.
Silverado 67, Canyon Springs 64

The Pioneers may very well punch their ticket to another state tournament this week.
Canyon Springs 71, Silverado 60

Las Vegas is the better team, but Green Valley doesn't lose at home.
Green Valley 72, Las Vegas 68

Have to go against Brewer in this near-pick'em game.
Las Vegas 68, Green Valley 66

Gorman should go relatively unchallenged in winning the state title.
Gorman 94, Cimarron 62

Anyone, even Gorman, can have an off night. It's going to take more than that for Cimarron to compete, though.
Gorman 82, Cimarron 52

Centennial advances to the regional semifinals for the second straight year.
Centennial 80, Spring Valley 59

Grizzlies aren't ready for the Allen twins.
Centennial 76, Spring Valley 62

Clark might be the second-best team in the state.
Clark 82, Palo Verde 73

This is the marquee game of the first round of the playoffs.
Clark 72, Palo Verde 68

Legacy is peaking at the end of the season.
Legacy 73, Durango 61

In another great game, Longhorns outlast upset-minded Trailblazers.
Legacy 74, Durango 73

Bishop Gorman is the clear-cut favorite to win the state title.
Gorman 91, Legacy 64

Longhorns have gone on a great run this season, but it's not going to end well.
Gorman 88, Legacy 63

Centennial will have a hard time beating PV for the third time in two months.
Palo Verde 70, Centennial 65

Palo Verde played one of its best games of the season in the opening round, while Centennial played one of its worst. It will even out Thursday.
Centennial 70, Palo Verde 65

Green Valley doesn't match up well with Valley, especially in the post.
Valley 80, Green Valley 69

Gutsy effort against Coronado shows Valley means business.
Valley 78, Green Valley 67

In the words of Case Keefer, 'C-Springs'.
Canyon Springs 77, Foothill 71

No problem admitting that I love this Canyon Springs team.
Canyon Springs 68, Foothill 64

Green Valley has momentum on its side.
Green Valley 73, Foothill 69

Dirty secret: Brewer is only picking the Gators because he has them in the Sunrise Region draft we held on our podcast a few weeks back. Go Falcons.
Foothill 65, Green Valley 63

The Gorman-Palo rivalry makes this game closer than you’d think.
Bishop Gorman 80, Palo Verde 72

Gorman ran wild Thursday. Tomorrow doesn't project much differently.
