high school basketball:
The Las Vegas High basketball team started no seniors Tuesday in its Northeast League opener at Green Valley. But their underclassmen weren’t intimidated, continuing to progress ahead of schedule in a 74-59 victory. With three college-recruits in the junior class leading the charge, including four-star prospect Ray Smith on the wing, the Wildcats were hoping to gain enough experience in the regular season to peak during the playoffs. If not, they would be one of the favorites next season.

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.
