The week of December 6
Brewer vs. Keefer
Las Vegas Sun reporters Ray Brewer and
Case Keefer attempt to pick
the winning team from prep contests
across the Las Vegas area.
Valley might be the Sunrise’s best team. I’ll take the experienced Vikes.
Valley 63, Coronado 52
Brewer has told me, “Valley is really good,” three times in the past hour. Have to go with the Vikings if he feels that strongly about it.
Valley 65, Coronado 64
Canyon Springs gets revenge for football playoff loss to Liberty.
Canyon Springs 70, Liberty 59
Canyon Springs beat Liberty by 14 last year. It will be closer this time around.
Canyon Springs 75, Liberty 70
Silverado should beat this respectable 3A school.
Silverado 50, Moapa Valley 43
Much to Moapa Valley’s benefit, it’s going to take a while for Silverado to click this season.
Moapa Valley 49, Silverado 46
After picking against my Cowboys all football season, I’m sticking with the orange and black.
Chaparral 60, Centennial 58
Go ahead and stick with the Cowboys, I’ll growl with the Bulldogs and Aaseem Dixon.
Centennial 78, Chaparral 60
Behind Gorman, Western could be the second best team in the Southwest.
Western 71, Arbor View 52
Can’t imagine this being a close game.
Western 70, Arbor View 46
Palo Verde has no answers on the inside for Canyon Springs’ Jared Brandon.
Canyon Springs 80, Palo Verde 64
It’s going to be difficult to slow Canyon Springs this year.
Canyon Springs 92, Palo Verde 73
Las Vegas makes quick work of Del Sol.
Las Vegas 69, Del Sol 41
This is a solid Sunrise rivalry in football. I assume it’s not quite the same in basketball.
Las Vegas 57, Del Sol 40
Coronado has a tough schedule this week. The Cougars gain experience — and a win.
Coronado 65, Sierra Vista 63
Sierra Vista has the best player on the floor in Viko Noma’aea, but Coronado pulls out a team victory.
Coronado 66, Sierra Vista 62
Nationally ranked Gorman will get Durango’s best effort in a hardwood rivalry game.
Bishop Gorman 80, Durango 57
Not even Durango’s best effort would be enough. The Trailblazers need LeBron to compete in this one.
Bishop Gorman 93, Durango 60
Liberty is too much for Desert Oasis to handle.
Liberty 65, Desert Oasis 49
Aaron Navitsky will look more like Dirk Nowitzki in this one.
Liberty 69, Desert Oasis 51
