Canyon Springs' unsung hero shines in Sunrise semifinal victory

Thursday, February 20, 2014
The Canyon Springs High basketball team has become unstoppable this season with a trio of Division-I players leading the way. Shaquile Carr (UTEP) along with brothers Gerard and Jordan Davis (Eastern Washington) have the Pioneers one game away from winning a second straight Sunrise Regional championship, combining for 61 points today in a 99-82 semifinal victory against Valley.

The Las Vegas High basketball team was supposed to be one year away from competing for a championship. The Sunrise Region title was supposed to be won by Canyon Springs or Foothill — teams which went undefeated in league play and are led by proven upperclassmen. Just don’t tell the Las Vegas players they have to wait until next season to make a playoff run. Las Vegas never trailed today in the Sunrise Regional semifinals against Foothill, opening an 18-point lead in the first half, then fighting off a second-half surge for an 81-76 victory.

Durango basketball did something some didn't expect by winning playoff game

Not much was expected from the Durango High basketball team after its first game. Paris Estrada, the Trailblazers’ unquestioned leader and a four-year varsity point guard, tore the ACL in his knee in a loss against Canyon Springs. Durango did something today that wasn’t expected back in December when Estrada went down, winning a playoff game by topping visiting Cimarron-Memorial 76-71 in the Sunset quarterfinals.

Some feel the Canyon Springs High basketball team could challenge defending state champion Bishop Gorman for this year’s title. If Canyon Springs produces offensively like it did today in the Sunrise Regional quarterfinals, those predictions could prove to be accurate.

What a difference a half makes.

Saturday, February 15, 2014
Eldorado High’s Gerald Pentsil had been offered other soccer coaching and teaching positions numerous times. Some came from schools with more resources or in a perceived better part of Southern Nevada. But Pentsil was never tempted to leave, knowing his home is a place that needs him most — at-risk Eldorado in northeast Las Vegas. He’s been an earth science teacher and soccer coach at Eldorado since 1988, making him one of the state’s longest-tenured coaches.
