The week of January 4
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.
Western, which will be Gorman's stiffest league competition, can't keep it close.
Gorman 83, Western 65
Western really believed its record could be at 13-0 going into this game. Instead, it's going to be 12-2 after it.
Gorman 78, Western 62
Cimarron out-muscles Palo Verde for crucial Northwest victory.
Cimarron 53, Palo Verde 50
Despite a couple of early losses, I think the Spartans could be the second-best team in the Northwest.

Coast into the state tournament and destroy everything in its path.

Green Valley is better than its 2-7 record, but not better than Coronado.

Centennial continues to be the team to beat in the Northwest.
Centennial 62, Cimarron 49
Remember when I said Cimarron was the second-best team in the Northwest earlier? Here, the Spartans run into the best.

Foothill, the Southeast's perennial power, continues to thrive atop the league standings.

I'm on Basic's bandwagon this week. A first for everything.
