Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer fill out their brackets for the Sunset and Sunrise regional tournaments.

Despite missing one of its star players, Bishop Gorman cruised through the first round of the Sunset Regional playoffs Tuesday night.

Junior point guard Noah Robotham, nursing a deep bruise on his kneecap, watched from the bench as Gorman started slow but ultimately beat Shadow Ridge 75-55.

“He was there and dressed tonight for emergency purposes,” Gorman coach Grant Rice said of Robotham. “Luckily, it didn’t come to that. We were able to pull away in the second quarter.”

Shadow Ridge led Gorman 13-10 after one quarter of action, but seniors Trey Kennedy and Rashad Muhammad conspired to bury the Mustangs.

Muhammad scored a team-high 15 points, while Kennedy chipped in 12 with eight rebounds and eight assists. Sophomore big man Stephen Zimmerman added 11 points.

Gorman will face rival Palo Verde in the semifinals Thursday at Durango.

“No matter if it’s football, basketball, it’s always a great game with Gorman and Palo,” Rice said. “We’re ready to give it a go.”

Rice was optimistic regarding Robotham’s return for Thursday’s game.
