high school basketball: Bill Bobier made players better on and off the basketball court, was last high school coach to win four straight titles
Valley High basketball coach Bill Bobier had several rules he strictly enforced with his players. One stands out for former star Freddie Banks: If you were going to dunk during a game, you better make it. So, when Banks missed a dunk against Western, he immediately realized there would be a price to pay — even if Banks’ miss was the result of being fouled. Bobier got the most of his players through tough love, winning four straight state championships at Valley from 1980 to '83. Friday, Bobier will receive the most prestigious honor for a local sports figure when ...

high school basketball: The Bulldogs overcome double-digit deficit to beat Valley for last spot in Thursday's state tournament
With the Centennial High basketball team trailing Valley Monday by 10 points midway through the second quarter of the state play-in game, several in the gym assumed a player with the last name Allen would be the one to step up. And, twins Marcus and Malcolm Allen eventually took over the game. But, at this junction of the game, the Bulldogs had help from an unlikely source.

Jordan Davis always believed he would be leading his basketball team onto the floor at the high school state tournament. But not even Davis, a sophomore guard at Canyon Springs High, could imagine it happening at this stage of his career. Davis, after all, wasn’t promoted to the varsity team until two weeks ago.
Second-half scoring outburst leads Valley past Basic and into Sunrise semifinals
Tuesday, February 12, 2013
high school basketball:
When the Valley High basketball team fell behind by three points Tuesday at halftime against Basic in the first round of the Sunrise Regional tournament, the Vikings’ players could have easily been discouraged. After all, they went from being undefeated in the Northeast League two weeks ago to closing the regular season on a two-game losing streak — a skid not expected from a team expected to contend for the region crown.

Down 12 points entering fourth quarter, Valley rallies to double-digit win at Las Vegas
Saturday, January 12, 2013
high school basketball:
This final score is sure deceiving. The Valley Vikings basketball team beat host Las Vegas High 79-68 Friday, but it was anything but a comfortable double-digit victory in a battle of two undefeated Northeast League teams. Las Vegas led by 12 points entering the fourth quarter and appeared well on its way to earning sole possession of first place. But Valley picked up the pace in the final eight minutes, using a full-court pressure to create several turnovers and easy baskets, and scoring 36 fourth-quarter points to grab the crucial win.
