    The Bishop Gorman High basketball team took Centennial’s best punch in the first quarter Wednesday in a rematch of last year’s state championship game. Centennial made 5 of 6 of its 3-pointers in the first quarter, leading the host Gaels by one point after the initial eight minutes. That would be all the success Centennial would have.

    Gorman finally downs Findlay Prep with hot start, big effort from improving junior
    Jan. 25, 2014
    They were supposed to be the Bishop Gorman High basketball team’s new “Big Three.” After the Gaels graduated a trio of top-100 recruits two seasons ago, 2015 classmates Nick Blair, Chase Jeter and Stephen Zimmerman were expected to emerge as the Nevada power’s new threesome of elite players. Jeter and Zimmerman have lived up the billing, becoming five-star recruiting prospects and two of the best players on the court each game. Blair clearly is a step behind. But that’s starting to change this season with the 6-foot-5 wing cracking the starting lineup and showing off his off-the-charts athleticism. It’s because ...

    Jan. 24, 2014
    Bishop Gorman High’s Noah Robotham buried a 3-pointer from the corner, quickly hustling back on defense and not realizing the significance of his shot. In a game of big plays, blue-chip recruiting prospects and much anticipation, it was Robotham — then a freshman — with one of the most memorable plays.
