Canyon Springs might be the Sunrise Region’s best teams.
Canyon Springs 88, Valley 79

Tuesday Jan. 28
Valley
at
Canyon Springs

Desperate enough to start picking a lot of upsets, though this wouldn’t be that big of one.
Valley 77, Canyon Springs 74

Durango hasn’t won a road game all season.
Palo Verde 71, Durango 63

Tuesday Jan. 28
Durango
at
Palo Verde

That’s because it hasn’t had any as winnable as this one.
Durango 69, Palo Verde 60

Wouldn’t be surprised if Foothill finishes league play undefeated.
Foothill 71, Coronado 60

Tuesday Jan. 28
Coronado

Foothill

Too bad Foothill vs. Canyon Springs or Valley isn’t on the schedule.
Foothill 68, Coronado 65

Liberty grabs victory, small edge in race for playoffs in Southeast.
Liberty 59, Eldorado 57

Tuesday Jan. 28
Liberty

Still believe the Patriots can get hot and go on a run.
Liberty 67, Eldorado 57

It’s Gorman’s stiffest instate challenge, and a budding rivalry.
Gorman 80, Centennial 64

Wednesday Jan. 29
Centennial

Bishop Gorman

Much closer than Brewer’s score. Guaranteed.
Gorman 74, Centennial 68

I really, really like Cimarron. Think it could make Sunset finals.
Cimarron 68, Desert Oasis 61

Wednesday Jan. 29
Cimarron-Memorial

Desert Oasis

Tony Harrison is emerging as one of the valley’s best players.
Cimarron 72, Desert Oasis 61

Keefer thinks Arbor View will eventually lose a league game. I don’t.
Arbor View 78, Palo Verde 73

Thursday Jan. 30
Palo Verde
at
Arbor View

Hard to make that prediction with any conviction anymore with the way Arbor View is playing in close games.
Arbor View 84, Palo Verde 69

Should be an easy win for Basic, which beat Liberty by 12 already this season.
Basic 73, Liberty 64

Friday Jan. 30

Basic

So, that run I said Liberty could go on…
Liberty 54, Basic 51

Centennial has hangover from Gorman game, dealt upset.
Cimarron 74, Centennial 69

Friday Jan. 30

You hear that, Troy Brown? There’s a doubter to my right.
