high school recruiting:
Whenever college basketball coaches visited Canyon Springs High in North Las Vegas to recruit guard Shaquile Carr, initial questions typically didn’t start with how many points or assists he averaged per game. Rather, it’s another average they were concerned with — his grade-point average.

Gerad Davis sparks Pioneers with 36 points in "his best game"
Gerad Davis inhaled deeply and pretended to spoon himself food upon checking out of Canyon Springs’ game for the first time with three minutes to go Wednesday night. It was the perfect choreography for Davis’ saunter down the bench. The senior guard earned the fatigue by feasting on Las Vegas High.

High school basketball: Shaq Carr had to sit out the last semester of his junior season, cooling his recruitment and forcing him to refocus
Shaq Carr knows it’s better to be seen and not heard than the other way around. That’s what he’s striving for, because for the past semester, at least in basketball circles, he was neither.

high school basketball:
The Canyon Springs High basketball team was trailing Las Vegas by nine points at the end of the first quarter Thursday in the Sunrise Regional semifinals when the Pioneers got the spark they needed. The scoreboard at Green Valley malfunctioned to cause about a 15-minute game delay, giving Canyon Springs a chance to regroup and game plan against Las Vegas’ up-tempo attack it had struggled to contain. Canyon Springs went on a 12-0 scoring run after the game restarted, eventually prevailing 67-64 in a back-and-forth affair to earn a spot in Friday’s Sunrise championship game.

The Pioneers have hit their stride after losing junior point guard Shaquille Carr, beating host Eldorado Tuesday, 74-66, in the first round of the Sunrise Regional tournament for their fifth win in six games to become a legitimate contender in the Sunrise.

high school basketball: Senior Greg Cox helps Falcons overcome seven-point halftime deficit with a trio of second-half 3-pointers
When the Foothill High basketball team scored just four points Thursday in the second quarter of its Sunrise Regional semifinal game against defending state champion Canyon Springs, the Falcons’ players could have easily become frustrated. But they didn’t. That’s especially true for senior guard Greg Cox, who despite being one of the best 3-point shooters in Southern Nevada, misfired on several long-range attempts in the quarter.

Welcome to a new era of Canyon Springs basketball, where the faces have changed but the mentality has stayed the same.

Prep basketball coaches contemplate new mercy rule

HS basketball:
Karen Weitz can’t help feeling this rule was created partially with her Centennial High School girls basketball team in mind. The Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association’s Board of Control Monday approved a mercy rule for Nevada high school basketball games, which calls for a running clock when one team is ahead by 40 or more points in the second half. To be implemented this winter, the clock would only stop for timeouts and continue to run during fouls shots — comparable to a recreation-league game where teams have the court for one-hour blocks.

ray brewer: Paying tribute to the local legend would help in keeping prospects at home
Freddie Banks doesn’t hesitate responding when asked who is the best high school basketball player to come out of Las Vegas. Banks smoothly answers the question with the same confidence he displayed in taking a crucial shot with the game on the line. “Freddie Banks, that is who is the best,” said Banks, who enjoyed a storied career at Valley High in the early 1980s before becoming one of UNLV’s all-time greats. He earned the right to talk about himself in the third person one unforgettable night in the March of 1987, when he seemingly couldn’t miss in knocking down ...
