high school basketball:
It’s not common for a high school basketball team to lose one of its best players for the season and become a better squad. But that is what appears to have happened at Canyon Springs. The Pioneers have hit their stride after losing junior point guard Shaquille Carr, beating host Eldorado Tuesday, 74-66, in the first round of the Sunrise Regional tournament for their fifth win in six games to become a legitimate contender in the Sunrise.

Desert Pines coach, players grab victory in return to Eldorado

high school basketball:
When the Desert Pines High basketball team jumped out to a 14-point advantage Thursday midway through the second quarter against host Eldorado, Jaguars coach Mike Uzan knew the lead wouldn’t be safe. After all, he is more than familiar with the talent and determination of the Eldorado players. Uzan is in his first year coaching at Desert Pines after spending the past 11 years on staff at Eldorado, his alma mater. Eldorado eventually rallied to take the lead with 3:38 remaining, but Desert Pines pulled out a hard-fought 70-67 victory in Uzan’s first game against his former team.

Bishop Gorman girls also advance to the state tournament
The fate of two seasons came down to one loose ball. With three seconds left in Tuesday’s state tournament play-in game at Del Sol High, Eldorado trailed Sierra Vista by one with Daquon Thrower at the free-throw line shooting his second attempt. Thrower, who swished the first free throw, clanked the shot off the back iron. Teammate D.J. Billingsley came up with the ball after a brief scramble right below the basket. But Sierra Vista’s Dallin Molina stepped up and contested Billingsley’s put back as the buzzer sounded to send the Mountain Lions to Nevada high school basketball’s version of ...

Eldorado wins neighborhood rivalry game with Las Vegas to remain undefeated
Friday, December 17, 2010
This win comes with some bragging rights. Curtis Stewart scored 19 of his 25 points in the first half Thursday night to help the Eldorado High basketball team build an early double-digit advantage and hold off a late charge by visiting Las Vegas for a 64-58 win. While it’s just the second week of the season, the league victory will surely be beneficial for the undefeated Sun Devils (6-0) come February in what is expected to be a tight Northeast Division race.
