●●● GILBERT - PINNACLE  ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Game #28- February 27, 2014
 
By Ryan Bafaloukos, Special to Tribune

For the second straight year, the sixth-seeded Gilbert boys basketball team found itself matched up against No. 3 Pinnacle in the Division I quarterfinals.

And for the second straight year, the Tigers came up short, falling to the Pioneers, 69-57, Thursday afternoon at Wells Fargo Arena.

Pinnacle will meet Dobson for a third time this season in the early Division I semifinals Friday afternoon at Wells Fargo Arena.

“We didn’t play well early,” said Gilbert coach Jay Caserio. “There were some baskets around the hoop that we didn’t put in and we missed a lot of free throws.”

The game started with a back-and-forth opening quarter as both teams struggled from the field. Gilbert (21-7) used the big bodies of Truman Moore and Spencer Nicolds to grab an early 8-2 lead. Pinnacle came back to take a 12-10 lead after the first eight minutes.

The teams traded baskets in the second quarter and the Pioneers took a narrow, 29-26 lead into halftime. In the third quarter, Pinnacle guard Dorian Pickens took over.

The Stanford-commit scored 14 of his game-high 36 points in the third quarter, and the Pioneers outscored Gilbert 27-16 in the third, breaking the game open.

“We had some uncharacteristic plays,” Caserio said of the third quarter. “We had some turnovers and some bad decisions. Pickens hit some shots and I think the guys panicked a bit.”

Gilbert tried to close the distance in the final quarter, but never got within eight points. The Tigers were led by Nicolds, who scored 19 points and grabbed five rebounds. Moore scored 10 points and recorded six rebounds, but the Tigers were 7 of 16 from the free-throw line for the game.

●●● GILBERT - MOUNTAIN POINTE  ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Game #25- February 05, 2014

The Tigers played on the road again on back to back days versus the Mountain Pointe Pride and came out victorious with a 75 to 47 score. The Tigers jumped out to a double digit lead with good ball movement and rebounding. The Pride made a nice comeback towards the end of the first quarter, but when the Tigers brought Anthony Bryant back into the game in the second quarter the Tigers raced out to a 20 point advantage and at the break the score was 30 - 18.


The Tigers ball movement and chemistry was even better in the second half. The first possession of the third quarter Spencer Nicolds found Wyatt Lowell on a nice back door cut for a two handed slam. The Tigers continued to share the ball and also connected on 8 threes for the game. Leading scorer for the Tigers was Spencer Nicolds with 19 points. Also scoring in double figures was Truman Moore's 13 points, including 14 rebounds and Wyatt Lowell's 11 points. For the game 9 Tigers were able to reach the scoring column in the score book.


Up next is the Tigers last home game of the regular season, which means we get to honor our four seniors. This year the varsity will be hosting the Jaguars from Desert Ridge who is a very skilled team with two of the best scorers in the valley. The coaching staff is excited to honor Anthony Bryant, Trevor Spires, Spencer Nicolds and Eric Mosley who are this year's seniors.

Game #23 - January 31, 2014

The Tigers won a home game versus the Skyline Coyotes Friday night on parent night by a score of 74 - 48. The Tigers started fast getting out to a 23 - 9 first quarter lead behind Wyatt Lowell's 8 points. The scoring continued in the second quarter with Nick Agostino connecting on 7 of his game high 14 points. The Tigers entered the locker room with a 41 - 18 lead.

The third quarter showed much of the same for the Tigers as they scored 25 points in the quarter. The chemistry, ball movement and willingness to find their teammates was fun to watch. On many possessions a Tiger could of taken it upon himself to get a shot, but elected to make the extra pass to their teammate for a better look. All 12 Tigers in the scorebook were able to get in the scoring column too, which was neat to see. Beside Agostino's 14 points, others who scored double figures were Wyatt Lowell's 13 points, Spencer Nicolds' 11 points and Chris Bowling's 10 points. Wyatt also ripped down 12 rebounds on the night to record a double-double.

●●● GILBERT - BASHA  ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Game #21 - January 28, 2014

The Tigers took on the Basha Bears Tuesday night on the road and came away with a 77 - 64 victory. Basha, coached by Mike Grothaus, who won a state championship as a senior at Gilbert, play extremely hard and as young as they are have a very bright future.

The game started well for the Tigers as they were able to get stops defensively and get out in transition for open shots. When the Tigers couldn't score in transition they really moved the ball well as a team. Early in the game the Tigers found Truman Moore and many nice post entries for high percentage buckets. Truman is starting to get a good feel for holding off his defender for lead passes and if the defense over plays to seal for high low looks. As Basha started to focus on taking away Truman the Tigers moved the ball well opposite of Truman for open threes, which the Tigers made 8 on the night, and getting their defender in close out situations with drives to the basket, specifically Spencer Nicolds. At the break the Tigers lead 39 - 23.

In the second half the Tigers got their lead to 20 points, but Basha never let up and actually turned up the defensive pressure and started to cause turnovers and making Gilbert play pretty sloppy. Numerous turnovers by Gilbert, some forced and some unforced, foul trouble by Basha being aggressive on offense and indecisiveness and poor FT shooting allowed Basha to cut the lead down to 10 points. Basha's Nate Markovich was brilliant all night and led the scoring honors with 30 points. Gilbert finally made some nice plays on both sides of the ball down the stretch to hold their lead. Truman Moore led the Tigers with 20 points and 11 rebounds and notched his second straight double-double. Also scoring in double figures was Trevor Spires with 13 points, Nick Agostino with 12 points and Spencer Nicolds with 10 points. Wyatt Lowell rebounded very very well too with 10 boards and was one bucket away from a double-double too.

●●● GILBERT - CHANDLER  ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Game #20 - January 24, 2014
The Tigers got back in the winning column Friday night with a victory over the Chandler Wolves by a score of 73 - 58. The Tigers, as of late, have not been moving and sharing the basketball like it takes to be a very good team. The Tigers have been concentrating on that part of the game to get better and Friday night's game showed how it can affect a game.

The Tigers shared the ball better then they have all year which created very good shots all night. The first quarter was a little bit of a struggle, but the Tigers really turned it on in the second quarter out-scoring the Wolves 25-9. On offense the Tigers had a very good balance of getting post and perimeter touches and keeping Chandler's defense guessing throughout the game. On defense the Tigers did a pretty good job. Even though Chandler's scoring duo of Marco Morales and Bryce Perkins basically hit their season averages, their points didn't come easy.

Truman Moore led the Tigers in scoring and rebounding with 13 points and 11 rebounds. Also scoring in double figures was Anthony Bryant and Nick Agostino each scoring 12 points apiece.

Up next for the Tigers is another 3 game week started with a road game versus a young and well coached Basha Bears team on Tuesday night.

●●● GILBERT - HIGHLAND  ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Game #19- January 22, 2014

The Tigers dropped a tough road game at Highland Wednesday night in overtime by a score of 67 - 60. The Hawks led and controlled the entire game right from the tip. The Tigers got the benefit of some mistakes by Highland late in the game being down 8 points to get the game tied and sent to overtime. Sophomore Chris Bowling hit a deep three with 21 seconds left to knot the game at 55 all. The Tigers last possession defense was very good forcing a pretty difficult shot that rimmed out.


The struggle to score throughout the game continued in the overtime, credit to Highland's defense, but also Gilbert's lack of sharing the basketball. The Hawks outscored Gilbert 12-5 in the OT. Gilbert did a pretty good job limiting Jake Toolson who is one of the state's leading scorers as he scored 19 points on the night and only shooting 3 FTs. The difference in the game was Austin Witherill who made big shot after big shot. He hit deep threes, back door layups, pull up jumpers and shots off dribble hand-offs. He led all scorers with 22 points.

●●● GILBERT - NORTH  ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Game #18 - January 21, 2014

The Tigers earned a road victory Tuesday night over the North Mustangs by a score of 59 - 48. Coach Bustos, who has coached at North for many years winning two state championships does a great job putting his team in a position to win each and every night. The Mustangs used a matchup zone to negate the Tigers size and force them into shooting perimeter jump shots. The Mustangs also rebound and play very hard to make up for their lack of size.

The Tigers did a fairly good job getting the ball inside in the early stages of the game, but allowed a few Mustangs to get loose for five three pointers in the first half because of lazy floor position on defense. Spencer Nicolds' thunderous dunk as time ran out in the second quarter gave the Tigers a two point advantage at the break. The Tigers did a much better job defensively in the second half allowing no threes and were also able to create some turnovers in third quarter to outscore the Mustangs 16 - 8 and give themselves a 10 point cushion going into the final stanza. The Tigers did just enough in the 4th quarter to hold off North. It was a little disappointing to see some sloppy turnovers and missed free throws down the stretch while North was using a half court trap in which the Tigers should of been able to get pretty easy layups.

The Tigers had four guys in double figures led by Wyatt Lowell and Truman Moore each scoring 11 points followed by Spencer Nicolds and Anthony Bryant each scoring 10 points.

●●● GILBERT - CORONA DEL SOL  ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Game #17 - January 17, 2014
By Richard Obert azcentral sports

The two-time defending Division I champions showed once again since coming off the break that there may be no challengers ready to hang with the No. 1-ranked team after holding visiting Gilbert to 15 first-half points in a 68-39 Section II rout before an overflow crowd.

Friday, it was 6-9 senior center Connor MacDougall asserting his power against 6-9 Truman Moore and No. 4 Gilbert (13-4, 3-1). In the first half, MacDougall scored one more point than Gilbert had as a team in the half.

“Our main focus was defense tonight, and we figured if we could get stops, it would give us a good chance to win,” said Oregon-bound senior guard Casey Benson, who had seven of his team’s 39 first-half points. “Connor played really well tonight. It was a team effort. We had a bunch of guys who stepped up and played really well.”

Even the bench players, led by Cassius Peat and freshman guard Alex Barcello.

Peat provides toughness on defense, and Barcello, a strong ballhandler who can penetrate, nailed a 3-pointer late in the third quarter that got the 30-point, keep-a-running-clock rule in effect.

The key was the way MacDougall started the game, controlling the boards, and providing a physicality that Gilbert hasn’t seen.

“He set the tone early, and our other guys fed off of him,” Duane said.

Gilbert went with a zone with man coverage inside on MacDougall But MacDougall  was stronger and quicker, and was able to power his way to the rim for either baskets or getting put on the free-throw line because he was fouled.
