Winter break is over, which means it's time to get into back into basketball season.
The high school schedule is littered with huge games over the next week.
Read below for picks from sports editors Ray Brewer and Case Keefer on all of them.
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.
Desert Pines, just like in state title game last year, is too much for Cheyenne to handle.
Desert Pines 65, Cheyenne 59
Darnell Washington has been as good on the basketball court as he is on the football — and that's saying something.
Desert Pines 60, Cheyenne 55
Spring Valley’s offense, which averages 73 points per game, can score with most teams in town.
Spring Valley 78, Sierra Vista 64
A lot of these Southwest games feel so closely-matched.
Sierra Vista 77, Spring Valley 76
I’ve seen this movie. Strawther will go for more than 40, Pats upset Cougs.
Liberty 82, Coronado 80
Brewer is stuck in last year; Coronado is clearly improved this year.
Coronado 70, Liberty 62
Closer than you think.
Foothill 65, Green Valley 61
I'm backing the team with Dylan Hushaw.
Foothill 68, Green Valley 58
Arbor View’s backcourt the difference.
Arbor View 77, Faith Lutheran 72
Weren't you the one that told me Arbor View has no chance against either Faith Lutheran or Centennial? *Shakes head.*
Faith Lutheran 71, Arbor View 70
Canyon Springs sends a message — it’s still the king of the Northeast.
Canyon Springs 80, Desert Pines 72
Tough one to call, but Desert Pines usually shows up in a big way in big spots like this.
Canyon Springs 71, Desert Pines 65
Upset of the Week. Don’t be surprised when Panthers squeeze into postseason.
Palo Verde 68, Centennial 65
Can't tell if Brewer is serious with these Northwest picks, because they completely contradict what he's said all season.
Centennial 66, Palo Verde 60
