The week of January 21

Brewer's Picks
Last Week:
4-4

Season:
13-11

Brewer vs. Keefer

Las Vegas Sun reporters Ray Brewer and
Case Keefer attempt to pick
the winning team from prep contests
across the Las Vegas area.

Keefer's Picks
Last Week:
7-1

Last Season:
17-7

Gorman finally notches a win against Findlay.
Gorman 73, Findlay 69

Saturday Jan. 21
Findlay Prep
vs.
Bishop Gorman

I thought this would be the year Gorman beats Findlay, but the Gaels are still coming into their own after dealing with a couple of injuries to start the season.
Findlay 80, Gorman 74

Foothill may have a young roster, but the Falcons are the Southeast’s best team.
Foothill 64, Coronado 61

Saturday Jan. 21
Foothill
vs.
Coronado

Little doubt in my mind that Foothill is the class of Henderson this year.
Foothill 70, Coronado 65

One of the only times where I think home court will make a difference.
Palo Verde 80, Centennial 79

Palo Verde

I think these teams split their two meetings this year either way. Might as well go opposite of Brewer and take the Bulldogs in the first one.
Centennial 72, Palo Verde 71

Legacy takes control, stays in sole possession of third place in the Northwest.
Legacy 70, Shadow Ridge 58

Friday Jan. 20
Shadow Ridge

Legacy

No upset here, Legacy defends its home court.
Legacy 64, Shadow Ridge 61

Arbor View is making a move to be a playoff qualifier.
Arbor View 63, Mojave 49

Friday Jan. 20
Arbor View
at
Mojave

Both these teams are scoring-challenged. That’s not a good thing to be in basketball.
Arbor View 49, Mojave 48

Spring Valley’s talented roster starting to take shape.
Spring Valley 67, Desert Oasis 62

Friday Jan. 20
Desert Oasis
at
Spring Valley

Diamondbacks will have no answer for Deshaun Nowlin.
Spring Valley 70, Desert Oasis 58

It’s safe to say I’m officially on Valley’s bandwagon.
Valley 81, Eldorado 68

Friday Jan. 20
Eldorado
at
Valley

In case you don’t listen to our podcast, I’m firmly entrenched on the Caleb Carter bandwagon.
Valley 72, Eldorado 68

I have to pick at least one upset each week.
Liberty 76, Green Valley 74

Friday Jan. 20
Green Valley
at
Liberty

Picks like that are the reason I’ve already started building my lead on Brewer in the standings.
Green Valley 74, Liberty 63
