Congratulations to Boy’s Varsity Basketball team for winning the Marana Classic basketball tournament this past weekend.
In games #1, Pueblo avenged an earlier season loss to the Mustang’s of Sahuarita High School with a 61-50 victory.
Game #2 pitted the Warriors against Agua Fria High School. By controlling tempo and out rebounding their opponent, the Warriors defeated the 3rd ranked Owls 73-65.
Game #3, with Pueblo’s 2nd leading scorer Stephen Ponce injured on the bench, the Warriors found themselves at a height disadvantage against a huge team from Melbourne, Australia. Refusing to back down against a front line of 6’8’, 6’7” and 6’6” the Warriors lost their only game of the tournament in OT, 53-52.
In the final game of the tournament, Pueblo faced an undefeated Tucson High team. Behind a solid team effort, Pueblo skinned the Badgers of Tucson High 65-55; thus, winning the tournament.
Special congratulations go out to Mike Perez for leading all scorers with 92 points; a 23 pt. per game average.
Thanks to all those who have supported us this season. We look forward to seeing you at our two games this week: Tuesday, at home against Douglas and on Wednesday at Catalina. (Full Schedule)
