Game #26- February 16, 2010
In the first round of the Central Region tournament the Basha Bears took it to the Tigers to finish off their season by a score of 69 - 56. Even though the Tiger's season came to an end earlier than expected the entire coaching staff is proud of how the guys battled up until the final buzzer. The coaches would also like to say thank you and good luck to the four seniors (Matt Alvarado, Austin James, Shawn King and Salim Salim) as they have played their last game in a Tiger uniform.

Game #25- February 09, 2010
On the night where the seniors were being recognized the Gilbert Tigers were able to earn a good victory against our cross-town rivals of Highland by a score of 61 - 55. It was a very emotional game for the Tigers as it was the last game for the seniors in "The Jungle" and the fact that senior Matt Alvarado started and played in his first game of the year as he has been injured for the entire season. The Hawks started the game well as they jumped out to a 10 - 3 lead, but the Tigers didn't panic and executed well on both ends of the court to take a 12 - 10 first quarter lead. In the second quarter the Tigers were on the verge of blowing the game open, but the Hawks scored timely baskets to cut the deficit to 6 points at the half. To start the 3rd quarter the Tigers intercepted two passes that led to two layups, one by senior Salim Salim.

The Hawks called a quick 30 second TO and it looked like the Tigers were going to again take complete control. Coming out of the timeout the Hawks continued to scrap defensively and were able to trim the lead to 5 points going into the 4th quarter. The Tigers played a nice 4th quarter executing their offense, making extra passes to find the open teammate and for the most part covering Highland's three point shooters. The key to the game though was Matt Alvarado's  supporting defense on Highland's post player Drew Emanuel. In the first meeting the Tigers had some trouble with him as he had a team high 18 points. Tuesday night, Matt and with the help of his teammates, Tigers were able to keep him to zero points. It sure was neat seeing Matt on the floor with his teammates and fellow seniors. Austin, Matt, Salim and Shawn.....nice way to close out your last home game of your careers!

●●●GILBERT - MOUNTAIN VIEW●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Game #24- February 05, 2010
On Friday night the Toros executed great team basketball on both ends of the court to take out the Tigers by a score of 65 - 49. In the first quarter Mt. View came out of the gates strong and were up by 10 points with the help of Asaad Woods' 13 points. The Tigers managed to turn up the pressure defensively and clawed back to within 7 points at the break. The third quarter doomed the Tigers as Mt. View held them to only 7 points. The Toros did a nice job of not letting Gilbert's shooters get any breathing room for open looks. Mt. View also does a good job of limiting second chance opportunities too. Down by as many as 16 at one point in the second half the Tigers made a bit of a comeback with some full court pressure, but in the end the Toros were able to make the necessary plays down the stretch. Mt. View 65 and Gilbert 49.

Up next for the Tigers is the last home game of the season against the Highland Hawks. We will be honoring our seniors (Shawn King, Austin James, Matt Alvarado and Salim Salim) before the game as this will be the last time they will ever get a chance to play in "The Jungle."

●●●GILBERT - MESQUITE●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Game #23- February 02, 2010
The Gilbert Tigers came into Tuesday's contest against the Mesquite Wildcats riding a two game winning streak, but just couldn't pull out the win as the Tigers dropped a road game by a score of 85 - 84. The Wildcats played inspired basketball without one of their starters in Isaiah Strong and came out and blasted the Tigers in the first quarter by a score of 23 - 14. The Tigers did a good job of not panicking and were able to knot up the score at 38 going into halftime. In the second half the Tigers just could not get consistent defensive stops as the Wildcats continued to score at will. On the other end of the stick the Wildcats had a hard time stopping the Tigers too as the two teams went back and forth throwing punches right to the buzzer.

The Tigers found themselves down 8 points with about a minute and a half left and they executed their 5 timeouts perfectly to cut the lead. Mesquite's Christian Bower hit two crucial free throws with 8 seconds left to go up 4 points and good thing because Shawn King nailed a three to put the Tigers within 1 point. The Tigers did not have any TOs left and smartly the Wildcats didn't inbound the ball and the time ran out on the Tigers. Mesquite was led by senior point guard Christian Bower's 33 points and the Tiger's Shawn King had another huge game with 37 points. The Tigers also got great scoring contributions from Erik Crawford's 19 points and Austin James' 16 points.

●●●GILBERT - CORONA DEL SOL●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Game #22- January 29, 2010
What was a good start to the week with a road victory on Tuesday versus Dobson turned out to be a great week with the Tigers first home victory of the season against #7 Corona. The Tigers started the game with a bang by Erik Crawford's back to back threes and found themselves up 8 after the first quarter with some sharp play. Corona came out in the second quarter with a 3/4 court trap which caused numerous turnovers leading to what seemed like a dunk contest by Marcel Towns. Gilbert closed with a couple of baskets to take a 32 - 29 halftime lead.

Tigers started off the second half just as good as the start of the game and continued to execute on the offensive end coupled with key defensive stops. The Tiger's continued to make the extra pass for great shots. Two Tigers came away from Friday's game with career highs in senior Austin James (23 points with 5 three pointers) and sophomore Erik Crawford (19 points). Shawn King led the Tiger's three-headed scoring monster with 26 points. Others that contributed to the Tiger's victory was Vince Guido's leadership at the point, Mitch Reber and Logan Tinker's interior defense and Drew Stankiewicz, James Wirthlin and Freddie Lash's perimeter defense. The Tiger's bench was very enthusiastic and as prepared as the coaching staff has seen this season. This was a good true team effort.

●●●GILBERT - DOBSON●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Game #21- January 26, 2010
The Tigers earned a much needed victory Tuesday night on the road versus the Dobson Mustangs by a score of 69 - 64. The Tigers played a nice first half by controlling tempo, playing good post defense and executing on the offensive end. Tigers up by 5 with a 26 - 21 score. In the third quarter Dobson came out like gang busters and punished the Tigers on the glass. The Tigers called a timeout and I called out the Tiger players in the huddle for getting their butts whipped. The Tiger players responded big time! The Tigers didn't give up hardly anymore offensive rebounds and continually beat Dobson to the 50 / 50 ball.

Shawn King had a huge night scoring with 33 points and 25 of them in the second half. Also, Erik Crawford and Austin James chipped in with 15 and 12 points respectively. Other big contributions that didn't get unnoticed by the coaching staff were by Freddie Lash, James Wirthlin, Mitch Reber, Vince Guido and Logan Tinker. It sure is a pleasure to coach a team full of kids with heart, dedication and determination.

Game #20- January 22, 2010
The Gilbert Tigers came up short versus the Basha Bears Friday night in the Jungle. The game plan for the Tigers was to concentrate on Basha's two 6'8 bigs in Berry and Jones as they seemed to dominate in the two prior games versus the Tigers. Gilbert did a fairly good job holding them to 18 points combined, but the Tiger's had no answer for Drake commit Judd Welfringer as he poured in 33 points.

The Tigers were led in scoring by Shawn King's 27 points and Erik Crawford's 11 points. Up next for the Tigers are the Dobson Mustangs on the road next Tuesday night followed by parent night next Friday versus the Aztecs from Corona del Sol.

●●●GILBERT - NORTH●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Game #19- January 19, 2010
The Tigers took on the highly ranked North Mustangs on Tuesday night and lost by a score of 77 - 72. The Tigers had an extremely difficult time preventing North from scoring in close as they scored 30 out of their 40 first half points from the paint. North's 6'7, 240 lb big man Alam Williams dominated the paint scoring 22 points with numerous offensive putbacks. The Tigers did a better job in the second half defending the paint, but timely three pointers by Daniel Bejerano (27 pts) kept North's lead in double digits.

The Tigers, like all season, didn't give up as they caught fire down the stretch connecting on 7 threes to close the gap to one point with the ball with 17 seconds left. The Tiger's shot rimmed out and North was able to close the game in the end. Shawn King led the Tigers in scoring with 24 points and Mitch Reber and Austin James chipped in nicely with 11 and 10 points respectively. Despite the record the Tiger's come every night fighting and it has been a pleasure to coach and be a part of. If we continue to play like Tuesday night the Tigers have just as good a chance to win the Central Region tournament as any other team in the conference.

●●●GILBERT - HIGHLAND●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Game #18- January 15, 2010
The Tigers took on the Hawks on Friday night at Highland in a hostile environment and were able to take home the victory by a score of 67-59. This has been a heated rivalry throughout the years and the first matchup of two didn't disappoint. There were 51 fouls called with an amazing 69 free-throws attempted, which the Tigers took advantage of by going 28-37 (76%) from the charity stripe.

In the first half the Hawks took an early 16-10 lead, but the Tigers were able to claw back with a good 3 minute stretch in the middle of the second quarter to take the lead. Tigers 28 Hawks 23 at the half. Highland started the second half with a bang scoring the the first 5 points to tie the score, but the Tigers were able to remain composed against Highland's trapping defense to remain up 5 going into the final quarter. In the 4th the Hawks continued to pound the ball into Drew Emanuel (16 points) as Gilbert struggled to keep the ball out of the paint. The Tigers, though, were able to execute and make big plays themselves, like Drew Stankiewicz's big three pointer and Austin James' defensive rebounds, to keep the lead. The Tiger's were led in scoring by Shawn King's 34 points where he was 18 - 22 from the FT line.

●●●GILBERT - MOUNTAIN VIEW●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Game #17- January 12, 2010
The Tigers were defeated last night by a well-coached and tough Mountain View team who came into the game with only 2 losses on the season by a score of 63 - 53. In the first quarter the Toros game plan was to pound the ball inside to their bigs and it was effective as the Tigers had a hard time with post defense. The Tigers were able to regroup and did a much better job defending the paint and got a big momentum boost with Austin James' half court buzzer beater to bring Gilbert within 7 points at intermission.

The Toros came out in the second half and scored the first 3 baskets, but then the Tigers answered back and kept the game from getting out of reach. In the fourth quarter the lead was anywhere from 8 to 12 points, but Gilbert just couldn't get over the hump like the previous two games versus Mesquite and Corona. The Tiger's were led by Shawn King's 22 points and Vince Guido chipped in nicely with 11 points of his own. For the Toro's it was Mark Mazzucco's 21 points that did a big part of the damage. Gilbert's coaching staff has been extremely happy with their team's performances and determination over the last 3 games despite the losses.

●●●GILBERT - MESQUITE●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Game #16- January 08, 2010
The Gilbert Tigers played are well hard fought game versus their cross-town rivals of Mesquite on Friday night. In the first half the Tigers played smart and controlled tempo for most of the half. The Tigers got a huge lift off the bench by Salim Salim as he came in and scored all of his 8 points in the second quarter. The Tigers held a 34-30 lead.

In the third quarter the Wildcats came out and turned up their defensive pressure by picking up full court and causing the Tigers to turn the ball over. The Wildcats had an 8 point lead after three quarters. In the final stanza the Tigers did all they could to chip away at Mesquite's lead and with about 2 minutes left Erik Crawford's wide open three was half way through cylinder before it popped out which would of cut the lead to 4. Mesquite was able to hit enough free throws down the stretch to close the game out. The Tigers were led in scoring by Shawn King's 25 points and Mesquite's Isaiah Strong filled it up with 26 of his own. The Tigers have the Toros coming into the Jungle next Tuesday so come on out and watch some exciting high school basketball.

●●●GILBERT - CORONA DEL SOL●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Game #15- January 05, 2010
The Gilbert Tigers focused much of their defensive attention Tuesday night on stopping Corona's leading scoring big man David Whitmore by zoning them and did a nice job limiting him to 9 points on 2 field goals, but it was Corona's supporting cast that did most of the damage, including 5 three pointers off the bench by Brooks Tennyson. Even though Corona won by 21 points the Tigers played inspired basketball and were down by 7 points at halftime despite Corona's torrid shooting.

The ten minute halftime didn't cool the Aztecs down unfortunately as they only missed one shot in the third quarter. The Tigers were led in scoring by Shawn King's 22 points and Austin James had a great game scoring 17 points. Up next is the cross-town rival of Mesquite. Mesquite is well balanced and having a great year so come out to the Jungle to help the Tigers upset the Wildcats.

Game #14 - January 02, 2010
The Gilbert Tigers dropped their game versus Skyline at US Airways in overtime by a score of 59 - 57. The game was very close throughout and with the game tied at 50 the Tigers had the ball with a chance to take home the victory in the last possession, but Erik Crawford's last second shot rimmed out.

In the overtime Skyline was effective by getting the ball in the paint, but again the Tigers had a chance to tie the game again with the last possession, but much like in regulation Shawn King's shot rimmed out too. The Tigers played hard and it was a great experience to be able to play in the Sun's arena. Back to the tough Central Region on Tuesday with a road game versus the Corona Aztecs.

●●●GILBERT - CENTRAL●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Game #13 - December 22, 2009
The Tigers had a disappointing loss in the last game of the tournament by a score of 74 - 62 versus the Central Bobcats. The Tigers just couldn't get consistent defensive stops throughout the game and The Tigers lacked a consistent scoring attack. Shawn King scored well for the Tigers (34 points), but the Tigers were in need of another player to help out with scoring. The Tigers coaching staff after the game felt like the coaching staff could have done a better job of getting more players involved on the offensive end, which is something they will look to improve at the break.

The Tigers were within 2 possessions early in the fourth quarter, but costly turnovers and poor offensive possessions led to the Bobcats ability to stretch their lead. The Bobcats were lead with 4 guys in double figures including the talented Junior Robert Selmon's 21 points. The Tigers are going to have to get back to the drawing board over the break as they come back on January 2nd against Skyline at US Airways and then back to the tough Central Region conference play for the second half of the season.

Game #12 - December 21, 2009
In the third round the Tigers played nicely versus the South Mountain Jaguars. The Tigers used a more balanced scoring attack led by Shawn King's 15 points and Vince Guido's 14 points and a good defensive effort holding the Jags to only 37 points.

The Tigers actually had a 17 points lead late in the fourth quarter, but struggled a bit down the stretch with execution and free throw shooting and allowed South Mountain get back within one possession. Kody Boyle got his first varsity start of his high school career as senior Austin James was and will be sidelined until after the break with a foot injury. Kody did a nice job with needed ball handling and hit a big three pointer in the middle of the Tiger's run in the third quarter. The Tigers advance to the 5th/6th place game tomorrow night versus the talented and athletic Central Bobcats.

Game #11 - December 19, 2009
The second round game of the tournament against the Basha Bears turned out to be much like the first time the Tigers played the Bears. Even though the Tigers came out with better energy unlike last time, the second quarter turned out to be the killer for the Tigers again. Tentativeness led to only 3 points in the quarter and Basha had a convincing 30 - 14 halftime lead.

The Tigers played better in the second half only getting outscored by 1 point and actually cutting the lead to 9 points at one time, but it was Basha's size and athleticism that helped hold off the Tigers. Again Basha was led with a very balanced scoring attack and the Tigers were led by Shawn King's 18 points. Up next for the Tigers is the South Mountain Jaguars.

Game #09 - December 14, 2009
The Tigers lost a hard fought battle versus #2 Dobson Tuesday night by a score of 76 - 69. The Tigers had a great first quarter as they had a 1 point lead by a score of 21 - 20. It was again the second quarter that did in the Tigers as they were outscored by 10 points and allowed Quinn Riekena from Dobson to come off the bench to score 15 of his games high 18 points.

The Tigers were able to claw back in the second half and even had the score to 2 points with about 2 minutes left in the game. From that point on the Tigers were not able to execute offensively coupled with a few turnovers and Dobson's superb free throw shooting (24 - 28) the Tigers couldn't get any closer. Dobson is a very good team with height in the post, solid perimeter players and great coaching so it is a good sign to play well against them.

Next up for the Tigers is the Phoenix Union Christmas Tournament. This is a tournament that the Tigers have had some success in winning it two years ago and playing well in it last year too. All games are played at North high school. Check our website for additional information.

The Tigers hung in well in the first quarter and were only down by 2 points, but they were outscored 18 - 3 in the 2nd quarter that hurt the Tigers. The Tigers lacked the intensity throughout the game and the Bears dominated in the paint scoring the majority of their points.

In the second half the Tigers did a better job of scoring offensively, but still had a hard time defending Basha talented and big team. The Bears used a balanced scoring attack highlighted by Welfinger's (14 pts), Jones' (15 pts) and 6'8 Berry's (18 pts). The Tigers were led again by Shawn King's 18 points. The Tigers will need to regroup quickly as they face the very talented Dobson Mustangs next week.

Game #07 - December 10, 2009
The Gilbert Tigers lost a hard fought game in overtime Thursday night to the Hamilton Huskies by a score of 58 - 56. The Tigers again got down 10 - 0 in the beginning of the game and to chip away to get within 8 points at the end of the first quarter and at the half.

The Tigers came out after halftime with some urgency and clawed within 5 points, but a flurry of baskets at the end of the third quarter gave Hamilton a ten point lead. The Tigers really dug in the fourth quarter defensively and the coaching staff saw that the Tigers believed they could win the game. The Tigers were able to hold the Huskies to four points on no field goals in the final stanza and had a 1 point lead with about 40 seconds left, but a costly turnover game the Huskies the ball back where they were fouled and hit 1 out of 2 free throws to tie the game.

The Tigers again had the ball, tied, with chance to win the game, but again another turnover gave the Huskies the chance to go home victorious, but the Tigers defense came up with a great stop to put the game into overtime. In overtime the Tigers were able to take a 53 - 50 lead, but the same old story, turnovers, didn't allow Gilbert to take home the win. The Tigers were led in scoring by Shawn King's 24 points and Austin James' 16 points. Austin is really starting to come around and helping the Tigers with scoring. The coaching staff is extremely excited to see the growth in this year's team and their efforts versus a talented and athletic Hamilton team.

●●●GILBERT - CHAPARRAL●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Game #06 - December 08, 2009
The Tigers got a much needed win Tuesday night on the road at Chaparral by a score of 64 - 58. The Tigers got down 10 - 0 early in the game but went on their own 10 - 0 run to tie the score in the middle of the first quarter. The Tigers had a 3 point lead, but Chaparral's sharp shooter, Nick Tomcisk, hit a deep three at the buzzer to tie the score at 17 at the end of the first quarter.

 The score continued to seesaw back and forth throughout the game until the Tigers grabbed a commanding 11 point lead with about 3 minutes left, but they couldn't hold it. Chaparral's swarming full-court man to man defense flustered the Tigers and the chipped the lead back to 2 points, but the Tigers were able to calm down, execute and put the game away with some layups by sophomore Logan Tinker and from the free throw line by Shawn King.

The Tigers used a balanced scoring attack led by Shawn King's 19 points, Austin James' 16 points and sophomore Erik Crawford's 12 points. No time to celebrate for the Tigers as they have to come right back on Thursday night and play the talented and well coached Hamilton Huskies.

Game #05 - December 04, 2009
The Gilbert Tigers drop their first home game of the year on Friday night versus the Desert Vista Thunder by a score of 59 - 48. Desert Vista did a good job of keeping Gilbert on their heels all night long with long possessions and good shot selection.

The Tigers hung around throughout most of the game, but could never get over the hump. Shawn King did all he could to get the Tigers back into the game with a game high 27 points including 14 in the fourth quarter, but Desert Vista's balanced scoring was too much

Game #04 - December 01, 2009
The Gilbert Tigers lost a tough battle versus the Brophy Broncos on Tuesday night by the score of 49 - 38. Both teams defended well, played good team basketball and came at a premium. After getting down by 12 points early in the second half the Tigers clawed back to within 4 points to close out the third quarter, but the Broncos lead quickly climbed back to ten points on good executed possessions by Brophy.

Brophy's 6'7 big Sai Tammula was solid as he led the Broncos with 14 points and 10 boards and going 8 for 9 from the free throw line down the stretch. The Tiger's were led by Shawn King and Austin James' 14 points apiece. The Tigers did a much better job of taking care of the ball as they only had 9 turnovers on the night. Come on out and support the Tigers Friday night as they host the well coached Desert Vista Thunder for their first home game.

Game #03 - November 28, 2009
The Tigers fell to Corona by a score of 66 - 53 in the the 3rd place game of the Fear the Hop Thanksgiving tournament at Mesa High Saturday night. The Tigers had a miserable second quarter giving up 22 points mainly due to multiple turnovers against Corona's press.

This was the second straight game where the Tiger's struggled to execute versus the press and is something that they better improve on as opposing teams will continue to do until they prove they can break it consistently. Corona's big man David Whitmore and sophomore standout Caleen Robinson led the Aztecs with 18 and 16 points respectively. The Tigers were led by Shawn King's 18 points and Austin James' 16 points. The Tigers go on the road Tuesday night to open up the regular season versus the tough and well coached Brophy Broncos.

●●●GILBERT - MESA●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Game #02- November 25, 2009
Mesa High School advanced to its own tournament championship game with a dominating performance Wednesday night. The Jackrabbits overpowered and outran Gilbert High, 78-46 in a semifinal contest of the Fear the Hop invitational at Mesa High School.

Mesa point guard Jahii Carson led the offensive attack with 26 points and six assists for the Jackrabbits, who never trailed in the game and cruised to a 45-25 halftime cushion.

“I’m very pleased with the way we played tonight,” Mesa coach Shane Burcar said afterward. “Gilbert is always a well coached team, and they’ve had our number the last few years. So anytime you can play well against it team like that it makes you feel pretty good.”

Forward Danny Powell was a consistent presence down low for Mesa, as he added 17 points and eight rebounds. Mohamad Sobh added 14 points for the Jackrabbits, including seven in the third quarter, when Mesa had built up a 30-point lead.

Shawn King led Gilbert with 15 points, but early foul trouble sent King to the bench during the first half, giving Mesa a defensive edge. “When (King) picked up two fouls early on, it was obviously an advantage for us and it made things easier defensively,” Burcar said.

Game #01- November 24, 2009
The Tigers opened the season with a win against Mt. Ridge by a score of 60 - 45 in the Fear the Hop Thanksgiving tournament at Mesa High.

James Wirthlin scored all of his 9 points in the third quarter which helped to push the Tiger's lead to 6 points going into the final stanza. The Tigers did a nice job of executing in the fourth quarter and getting good stops on defense at the same time to help seal the victory. The Tigers were led in scoring by Shawn King's 19 points and Austin James' 18 points. Up next for the Tigers is the highly talented Mesa High Jackrabbits Wednesday night at 7:45.
