Austin Starr scored 18 points today for the Foothill High basketball team in a 72-61 Sunrise Regional quarterfinal victory against visiting Green Valley.
Foothill, the No. 1 seed from the Southeast League, led by more than 20 points in the fourth quarter before emptying its bench.
Matt Rapp had 16 points for Foothill, Jalen Shepard added 14 and Torrance Littles contributed 13.
Foothill plays Las Vegas High Thursday in the Sunrise semifinals.
“Obviously, our defense will have to get us over the hump,” Foothill coach Kevin Soares said. “We have to be consistent. We have to hit shots when they are open and make our free throws. Basically, do all of the little things.”
