Las Vegas basketball's younger players mature ahead of schedule, earn spot in Sunrise finals
Thursday, February 20, 2014
high school basketball:
The Las Vegas High basketball team was supposed to be one year away from competing for a championship. The Sunrise Region title was supposed to be won by Canyon Springs or Foothill — teams which went undefeated in league play and are led by proven upperclassmen. Just don’t tell the Las Vegas players they have to wait until next season to make a playoff run. Las Vegas never trailed today in the Sunrise Regional semifinals against Foothill, opening an 18-point lead in the first half, then fighting off a second-half surge for an 81-76 victory.

The Foothill high basketball team overcame a shaky first-half Thursday against host Basic, struggling with the Wolves’ full-court press and hostile crowd in falling behind by eight points at halftime. Then came the third quarter. Game over. Foothill outscored Basic 33-7, easily beating the press for uncontested points and draining a few 3-pointers on the way to a 84-63 victory.

high school basketball:
Quick, name the best dynasty in Nevada high school sports? Programs at schools such as Bishop Gorman, Palo Verde or Centennial surely first come to mind for most Las Vegas-area prep sports followers. Well, think again. The Foothill High basketball team definitely needs to be in the conversation.

Sharp-shooting Starr guides Foothill to 11th straight victory
Wednesday, January 9, 2013
Foothill holds on to beat rival Basic behind seven three-pointers from Austin Starr
Foothill junior Austin Starr may have established himself as the best three-point shooter in town this season. It’s almost impossible to find any flaw with his game beyond the arc. Starr doesn’t miss very often either. He went 7-for-11 on three-point attempts Wednesday night at Basic, leading Foothill to a 71-67 victory.

Foothill's pressure defense, transition offense overwhelms Green Valley
Thursday, December 13, 2012
high school basketball :
The Foothill High basketball team’s pressure defense was too much for host Green Valley to handle for parts of the second half Wednesday. The Falcons turned a one-point lead early in the third quarter into a 20-point advantage midway through the fourth primarily because their full-court pressure frequently forced turnovers that lead to easy baskets in a 68-51 victory.

high school basketball: Senior Greg Cox helps Falcons overcome seven-point halftime deficit with a trio of second-half 3-pointers
When the Foothill High basketball team scored just four points Thursday in the second quarter of its Sunrise Regional semifinal game against defending state champion Canyon Springs, the Falcons’ players could have easily become frustrated. But they didn’t. That’s especially true for senior guard Greg Cox, who despite being one of the best 3-point shooters in Southern Nevada, misfired on several long-range attempts in the quarter.

Findlay, which takes players from around the country for its top-caliber team of blue-chip recruits, is in its sixth year of existence at Henderson International School.
