Bishop Gorman High’s Ben Carter nearly had a triple-double Wednesday, posting 15 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists to lead the host Gaels to an 81-41 victory against Cimarron-Memorial in the Sunset Regional quarterfinals.
Gorman, the perennial Nevada power and No. 1 seed from the Southwest Division, received a game-high 22 points from Shabazz Muhammad in advancing to Thursday’s semifinals. The Gaels at 4:40 p.m. will play Legacy at Desert Oasis.
“Cimarron did a great job in the first quarter trying to protect the ball and slow it down,” Gorman coach Grant Rice said. “Our guys were patient and didn’t go too quickly.”
Rosco Allen added 10 points for Gorman.
