    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.

Centennial made 5 of 6 of its 3-pointers in the first quarter, leading the host Gaels by one point after the initial eight minutes. That would be all the success Centennial would have.
