Week Fourteen: We bring you most of the major headlines from last night. The state had some important games as the number one team goes down.
Wednesday Night Highlights
Wednesday Lessons - Hope vs Prep
1. 3A Bracket could get very interesting: The Hope Christian Huskies topped rival Sandia Prep on Wednesday night in somewhat of a convincing way. The Huskies overall looked more complete as the host Sundevils couldn't get anything going from anyone outside Johnny Doran. He had little to know help for a good majority of the game.
2. Welcoming party for Huskie Guard: Not on the radar yet, junior shooting guard Brandon Zabala had an impressive start to the game on Wednesday night. Also, watch out for NMPreps.com Top 150 player Austen Drake who could be one of the best forwards in 3A basketball. The Huskies look ready to get back to the title game.
3. Final Four Status: Sandia Prep has yet to play four full quarters of consistent basketball. They are well coached, solid players but sometimes go minutes without a bucket. Final Four material absolutely, title contender well maybe. I still think this team could peak at the right time. Hope Christian is a definite title contender again and has options. Could be an interesting year though.
Grine: Wednesday Rundown
New Number One Coming....Again: No. 5 Eldorado 88, No. 1 Sandia 70. The Matadors will get only one week to enjoy being the number one team in New Mexico as they suffer a loss in their first game as the top team. The Eagles jumped out early on the Matadors and held control throughout the game.
District 2-5A: No. 6 La Cueva 56, No. 16 Manzano 49. The Bears got back on track with a win on Wednesday night moving them to (18-3, 1-2 District 2-5A). The Monarchs fall to 0-3 in District play and in jeopardy of missing the State Tournament.
District 5-3A: St. Mike's 58, Santa Fe Indian 29. The Horsemen of St. Mike's took control of this one and proved their dominance over District cellar team Santa Fe Indian. The Horsemen are fighting for the District 5-3A lead.
District 2-3A: Pojoaque Valley 54, Taos 44. Making things interesting is the Pojoaque Valley Elks giving the Taos Tigers their first loss of the District season. The Elks now tie with the Tigers for a share of the District Championship. The win will also shake up current, predict bracket seeds.
