Las Vegas basketball's younger players mature ahead of schedule, earn spot in Sunrise finals
Thursday, February 20, 2014
high school basketball:
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.

Gerad Davis sparks Pioneers with 36 points in "his best game"
Gerad Davis inhaled deeply and pretended to spoon himself food upon checking out of Canyon Springs’ game for the first time with three minutes to go Wednesday night. It was the perfect choreography for Davis’ saunter down the bench. The senior guard earned the fatigue by feasting on Las Vegas High.

Las Vegas basketball making strides faster than expected, downs GV in league opener
Wednesday, January 8, 2014
high school basketball:
The Las Vegas High basketball team started no seniors Tuesday in its Northeast League opener at Green Valley. But their underclassmen weren’t intimidated, continuing to progress ahead of schedule in a 74-59 victory. With three college-recruits in the junior class leading the charge, including four-star prospect Ray Smith on the wing, the Wildcats were hoping to gain enough experience in the regular season to peak during the playoffs. If not, they would be one of the favorites next season.
Davis brothers help Canyon Springs outlast Las Vegas, reach Sunrise championship game
Thursday, February 14, 2013
high school basketball:
The Canyon Springs High basketball team was trailing Las Vegas by nine points at the end of the first quarter Thursday in the Sunrise Regional semifinals when the Pioneers got the spark they needed. The scoreboard at Green Valley malfunctioned to cause about a 15-minute game delay, giving Canyon Springs a chance to regroup and game plan against Las Vegas’ up-tempo attack it had struggled to contain. Canyon Springs went on a 12-0 scoring run after the game restarted, eventually prevailing 67-64 in a back-and-forth affair to earn a spot in Friday’s Sunrise championship game.

Down 12 points entering fourth quarter, Valley rallies to double-digit win at Las Vegas
Saturday, January 12, 2013
high school basketball:
This final score is sure deceiving. The Valley Vikings basketball team beat host Las Vegas High 79-68 Friday, but it was anything but a comfortable double-digit victory in a battle of two undefeated Northeast League teams. Las Vegas led by 12 points entering the fourth quarter and appeared well on its way to earning sole possession of first place. But Valley picked up the pace in the final eight minutes, using a full-court pressure to create several turnovers and easy baskets, and scoring 36 fourth-quarter points to grab the crucial win.

Basketball player could have the biggest impact in the Sunrise Region

high school basketball: Local schools are gearing up for the opening tip at the end of November, including at Las Vegas High, where transfer Roberto Zavala from Mexico has impressed
Roberto Zavala had no interest in soccer. Not watching it. Not playing it. In Mexico, where the 16-year-old Zavala lived before moving to Southern Nevada last December, soccer is the sport most are passionate about. The country partially shuts down when the national team plays and virtually every child grows up dribbling a soccer ball. Not Zavala. Rather, Zavala’s sport of choice is basketball. And he’s pretty good at it.

high school basketball:
Chris Swanson was fouled hard on an aggressive drive the rim in the third quarter Friday night, being knocked to the floor and landing with a loud thud several in the gymnasium could hear. The Valley High point guard was in clear pain underneath the basket, needing a minute to regain his strength before finishing the Vikings’ home against rival Las Vegas High. The 5-foot-9, 135-pound Swanson could have easily avoided contact the rest of the night.

Welcome to a new era of Canyon Springs basketball, where the faces have changed but the mentality has stayed the same.

Coronado erases early deficit, downs Las Vegas to reach Sunrise semifinals
Tuesday, February 15, 2011
Coronado High basketball coach Jeff Kaufman spent the last three practices before the start of the playoffs trying to prepare his team for the speed and athleticism of the Las Vegas High players. Simulating the Wildcats fast break in practice with his taxi squad, however, didn’t exactly work. Las Vegas, using its speed to create easy scoring opportunities, wasted little time Tuesday in jumping out to a double-digit lead against Coronado in the Sunrise Regional quarterfinals. But after falling behind by 12 points in the initial six minutes, Coronado finally showed why it is one of the regional’s No. 1 ...
