high school basketball: Allen twins combine for 61 points to help Bulldogs move on in playoffs
At halftime, the game was playing out the way many thought it would. Centennial went on a substantial run in the second quarter to build a double-digit lead over a talented, but outgunned Durango team. That mentality changed after the Trail Blazers reeled off a big run of their own to start the second half.

high school basketball:
When the referee tossed the jump ball Thursday night to start the second overtime between Bishop Gorman and visiting Centennial, the state’s unquestioned top high school basketball teams, you could have easily argued the game would never end. On this night, they were that evenly matched. One team would pull ahead, then the other would tie the game. Over and over again.

Palo Verde corrected the mistakes from the previous two defeats Thursday night in the regional semifinals and cruised to a 79-66 victory over Centennial. The Panthers never trailed.

Prep basketball coaches contemplate new mercy rule
Wednesday, October 5, 2011
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.

Bulldogs fight off Panthers box-and-one zone against Aaseem Dixon
Centennial guards Joe Marshall and Malcolm Allen are often the smallest players on the court. For most of Wednesday’s game at Palo Verde, they were also the best. Marshall, a 5-foot-9 145-pound senior, and Allen, a 5-foot-11 140-pound sophomore, combined to scored 26 points off the bench and lead Centennial to a monumental 74-57 victory against Palo Verde.
