Breaking down the Bishop Gorman, Findlay Prep showdown

Las Vegas Sun reporters Case Keefer and Ray Brewer take a look at Saturday's high school basketball game between Bishop Gorman and Findlay Prep. They also break down the Palo Verde-Centennial game.

Fans without tickets to the sold-out high school basketball game today between Bishop Gorman and Findlay Prep at the 2,500-seat Cox Pavilion still had a shot at getting them, but not cheaply.

Stubhub.com had 12 tickets available for the 2 p.m. game, ranging from $90 to $201. They initially were sold at $15 to $30, but sold out in the first week of January after a few days.

It’s not every day a high school event draws this kind of pre-game excitement in the Las Vegas Valley. Then again, most contests don’t feature two nationally ranked teams loaded with Division I prospects and prized UNLV recruits.

Coronado High coach Jeff Kaufman, whose team will play Foothill at the Cox Pavilion prior to the Findlay-Gorman tilt, has been flooded all week with requests for tickets. He estimates more than 100 people reaching out.

Also, organizers expect ticket scalpers to be prominent outside the facility — practically unheard of for a high school game.

If you can’t get a ticket for the game, you’ll still be able to watch. It will be televised by ESPNU.
