Saturday, February 22, 2014
high school basketball:
The Clark High basketball team had been in this spot before against Desert Pines with a championship on the line. So, during a timeout midway through the fourth quarter today in the Division I-A Southern Region championship game, and with surely most in the Clark huddle thinking about when they blew a double-digit lead late in last year’s state championship game to Desert Pines, coaches reminded players of a message they’ve been preaching all season: Finish.

Clark basketball gains confidence after keeping game close with Mater Dei

high school basketball:
The Clark High basketball team didn’t back down. Even when the Chargers appeared to be overmatched Thursday against No. 3 ranked Mater Dei of Southern California in the Tarkanian Classic at Bishop Gorman, the Las Vegas power didn’t quit fighting. While a 72-58 loss will be recorded as a double-digit defeat, it will serve as much more for a team expected to contend for the Nevada state championship in a few months.

high school basketball: Clark High returns key contributors from last year's state runnerup squad; looks to make amends for fourth-quarter collaspe in state finals
Chad Beeten hasn’t watched the tape of this basketball game. Doesn’t care to — not even one minute. If anyone brought up his Clark High basketball team’s 59-57 loss last season to Desert Pines in the Division I-A state championship game, the coach would hide his disappointment, always trying to be the same up-beat person that makes him popular with his players.
