Keefer's Picks
Last Week:
13-1

Season:
57-20 (.740)

Canyon is too quick and determined for overmatched Reno school.
Canyon Springs 88, Spanish Springs 63

Thursday Feb. 27
Canyon Springs
vs.
Spanish Springs

Canyon Springs legitimately believes it’s the best team in the state. Time to see if the Pioneers are crazy or correct.
Canyon Springs 88, Spanish Springs 63

Gorman is everyone’s favorite to win a third straight championship.
Bishop Gorman 71, Reno 50

Thursday Feb. 27
Bishop Gorman
vs.
Reno

This is going to get ugly quick.
Bishop Gorman 93, Reno 46

Don’t call this an upset. Elko is the better team. They’ll prove it against defending state champs.
Canyon Springs 88, Spanish Springs 63

Thursday Feb. 27
Desert Pines
vs.
Elko

When it's this close of a call, I'm an unabashed homer for the Southern team.
Desert Pines 59, Elko 57

Diontae Jones will refuse anything other than going out on top.
Clark 72, Lowry 62

Thursday Feb. 27
Clark
vs.
Lowry

This game appears to be evenly matched, but Clark’s backcourt of Olsen and Jackson give them a slight edge.
Clark 65, Desert Pines 58

After watching Gorman cruise and Canyon Springs struggle in the semifinals Friday, it’s safe to say Gorman will three-peat. Canyon will kept it close early, though.
Bishop Gorman 81, Canyon Springs 67

Friday Feb. 28
Bishop Gorman
vs.
Canyon Springs

I'm done being convinced or convincing myself that any other team in the state can compete with Gorman.
Bishop Gorman 83, Canyon Springs 62
