●●● GILBERT - MOUNTAIN VIEW ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
The third-seeded Toros (24-7) executed to perfection most of the night and pulled away early in the fourth period to knock off the sixth-seed Tigers (21-8) at Wells Fargo Arena. Mountain View won an earlier meeting in overtime in December.

Mountain View used a 12-1 run to begin the final quarter to break the contest open. That extended a six-point lead to 17. Mountain View battered Gilbert with threes from guard Tommy Kuhse (five), who totaled 20 points on 8-of-9 shooting from the field. Kuhse's buzzer beater in the first meeting gave the Toros that win. Mountain View worked the baseline often for post-ups and backdoor buckets as part of its game.

David Beecher, who had a big game offensively in the second round win over Basha, poured in 15 points and Trevor Willis added 13 points -- seven from the free-throw line. Mountain View faces Desert Vista in Saturday's 6 p.m. semi at Grand Canyon University. Gilbert was led by senior post Truman Moore (14 points) and Chris Bowling and Nick Agostino with 10 points apiece.

●●● GILBERT - PINNACLE ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
By Russ Christ, Special to Tribune

In a closely-contested game, Cole Carlson knew he had to do something.

Through three quarters, the 6-2 senior guard for Gilbert had scored a single point and his team trailed Pinnacle by one in a Boys Division I state tournament second-round game at home.

But then Carlson decided to take over.

He knocked down a couple jump shots.

Carlson drove to the basket.

And he scored seven of his 11 points to help break open a tight game and led Gilbert to a 48-40 win over the Pinnacle Pioneers on Saturday.

“It was because of my teammates finding me,” Carlson said of his fourth quarter play. “I think we all share the ball and we don’t care who gets the shots. It’s whoever has the hot hand. Before the game all the seniors talked. We told each other to play our hardest and execute, don’t give up, and win every 50/50 ball because this is our last game at home.”

Sixth-seeded Gilbert, now 21-7, could have won by more if not for suspect ball handling, numerous turnovers and poor shooting. The Tigers repeatedly lost possessions without getting shots, pressured by Pinnacle’s tenacious defense.

And, uncharacteristically, the Tigers missed 11 of 16 free throws.

“We’re normally a better free throw shooting team,” Carlson said, “but sometimes they don’t go in.”

The Tigers led 11-10 after the first period, largely due to the toughness of senior Truman Moore, a 6-8, 235-pound senior center. Moore scored four points early and defended the rim against a taller and deeper Pinnacle team that had beaten the Tigers on November 25 in the season opener.

Perhaps more impressive?

Moore and his teammates limited Pinnacle to only six points in the decisive fourth quarter.

“We work hard and we play together,” Moore said. “It’s just a team effort all the way around. I loved that type of game. I’m a big physical guy. They have a lot of physical guys and the officials just let us play.”

Junior Chris Bowling, a 6-7, 165-pound First Team D1 Section II player, carried the Tigers in the first half, scoring 12 of his team-high 16 points. He also knocked down two 3-pointers under pressure, keeping his team in the game.

Tied at 21 at the half, Pinnacle seemed to have the upper hand because of its depth.

But the Pioneers couldn’t get their shots to fall in the second half.

“Survive and advance,” said Gilbert’s Jay Caserio, the Co-Coach of the Year in Section II. “Survive and advance. That’s my comment.”

The Pioneers finished its season 19-10.

Pinnacle was led by Ben Wahlberg, who had 11 points, and Trevor Baker, who chipped in nine. A.J. Elliot scored seven.

Nick Agostino and Jacob Nicolds, who made key three key free throws in the last minute, added seven and six points, respectively, for the Tigers.

●●● GILBERT - MOUNTAIN POINTE ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
The Tigers were able to bounce back from Tuesday night's loss to Perry with a victory over the Pride from Mountain Pointe on senior night by a score of 57 - 42. The Tigers started the game fairly sharp by outscoring the Pride in the first quarter by a score of 19 -11. The second quarter did not fair as well as the Tigers got into foul trouble and there was a definite lack of energy on both sides of the ball. Halftime score Tigers 28, Prided 22.

The second half the Tigers were pretty good on the defensive end and started to execute well to get some easy baskets. All 12 Tigers were able to get into the game and on senior night all 7 seniors got into the scoring column. The Tigers were led in scoring by Chris Bowling's 16 points and Truman Moore also scored in double figures with 13 points.

●●● GILBERT - DESERT VISTA ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
Despite coming in as a road underdog, Gilbert (Ariz.) High controlled the tempo Thursday night from the outset -- building an early 13-point lead, pushing it to 18 in the second half before knocking off one of the state's elite programs, Phoenix (Ariz.) Desert Vista, 64-51.

Truman Moore had a game-high three blocks against Desert Vista. Three players -- Nick Agostino, Chris Bowling and Truman Moore -- reached double figures, while Jacob Nicolds and Cole Carlson pitched in with 16 points and nine rebounds combined.

With the upset victory, Jay Caserio's squad improved to 17-5 on the season.

Here's a look back at the stunning wire-to-wire victory:

The conditions outside the gymnasium at Desert Vista were dreary to say the least. And for the home side, it wasn't much better inside.

Two days removed from its loss at No. 1-ranked Tempe (Ariz.) Corona del Sol, Desert Vista looked like a squad that had the wind taken out of its sails -- missing five of its first six shots, while allowing Gilbert to start a perfect 7-of-7 from the field.

Standout forward Brandon Clarke (18 points and five rebounds) and senior guard David Powell (10 points and five assists) tried to rally their teammates in the second half, but the Thunder never got closer than eight points in the final 16 minutes.

Tony Darden doesn't need to prove he's one of the best coaches in Division I. His resume and his team's growth this season speaks for itself. But it's becoming clearer and clearer that his toughest challenge of 2014-15 starts right now. Desert Vista still has the talent, athleticism, speed and depth to compete for a state title, however if it can't overcome its current bout of adversity, talk of appearances in the semifinals and final will be moot.

All the credit in the world goes to Gilbert Coach Jay Caserio, though, for having his team ready to play against one of the top teams in the state.

Gilbert threw the first punch and had no problem throwing additional jabs throughout the evening. Offensively, Agostino and Carlson did a nice job of fighting through a consistent full court press or half court trap, Bowling and Nicolds were impressive with their ability to knock down jumpers consistently along the perimeter and Moore illustrated a knack for finding open space in the paint -- which allowed his guards to find an easy target when they slipped through the cracks of the defense.

Because of the type of balance they show on offense and relentless effort they put in at the defensive, there's no telling how far the Tigers can go. Even in its losses to Corona del Sol, Mesa (Ariz.) Mountain View and Phoenix (Ariz.) Pinnacle, Gilbert hung in until the final buzzer. If Caserio and Co. are playing into late February don't be surprised.

It was hard not to notice 6-foot-8 senior center Truman Moore Thursday -- what with the sweat constantly flopping off his free-flowing hair and the tongue he'd stick out after almost every big play in the contest.

What stood out even more was how he stood tough (seven rebounds, charge drawn and three blocks) against Clarke, despite the fact the matchup didn't exactly look like an even one on paper.

"He's a three-year starter for us," said Caserio. "He's had a lot of stuff he's had to go through individually. His dad passed away when he was a sophomore. He's gone through more than most kids go through in a lifetime. He's really come around for us. He had a rough start to the year but never complained.

"His body language has always been good, and really he's our energy guy. At practice, he's our loudest guy and it's not even close. The hard work is paying off for him."

After the game, Moore didn't try to duck questions when asked about his rough start. Instead, he credited his teammates and the coaching staff for believing that he could fight through the struggles.

"My coaches have done a great job of working with me," said Moore. "At the beginning of the season, I wasn't really putting in the work that I needed to. They really got on me and let me know what I'm capable of if I trust that the team has my back. They've continued to be positive with me and put me in a great position to play and be successful."

●●● GILBERT - HIGHLAND ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
In one of the best rivalries in the state the Gilbert Tigers ground out a home victory over the Highland Hawks in The Jungle by the score of 48 - 43 thanks to the huge boost given by the GOONS. The Tigers were also able to earn their 4th straight program sweep.

The Hawks played inspired basketball from the tip and pretty much dominated the game and were beating the Tigers to every rebound and 50/50 ball. At one point the Hawks held a 16 - 5 advantage. The Tigers were able to weather the storm a bit in the first half and claw themselves back within 5 points by a score of 23 - 18.

Throughout the second half the Tigers turned up their intensity on both ends and started chipping away at the Hawk lead by regularly getting to the charity stripe. At the end of 3 quarters the Hawks still held a 3 points lead. The Tigers defense and rebounding was very good in the 4th quarter holding the Hawks to only one made field goal on a put back shot late in the game. Justin Hopkins and Jacob Nicolds keyed the defensive unit down the stretch of the game. Chris Bowling and Jacob Nicolds both netted huge free throws down the stretch to seal the win.

The Tigers got close to evening up the 50/50 balls at the end of the game and after being down by 3 rebounds at the half ended up out-rebounding the Hawks by 4 overall at the end of the game. Double digit scorers for the Tigers were Jacob Nicolds with 14 points, Chris Bowling with 13 points and Nick Agostino with 12 points.

●●● GILBERT - MESQUITE ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
The Tigers took on the Mesquite Wildcats Tuesday night on the road and earned a 65-33 victory and the Tiger program earned a sweep as both the JV and freshmen also won their games. The Tigers started out fairly sharp on both ends of the ball, but took a bit of a blow early when starting point guard Nick Agostino drove to the basket, but got fouled and went to the floor awkwardly, dislocating his thumb, sending him to the bench for the remainder of the game. Nick's replacement, sophomore Caden Towt, stepped in nicely and ran the team well.

The Tigers switched their defenses between man and zone frequently throughout the first half keeping the Wildcats off balance causing many perimeter jump shots which the Tigers cleaned up. The Tigers were able to get out in transition a little and score and when they needed to run offense they shared it well to get high percentage shots. The Tigers also rebounded well offensively leading to many second chance points.

Scoring in double figures for the Tigers were Chris Bowling, Jacob Nicolds and Cole Carlson, netting 19, 17 and 10 points respectively. Leading rebounders were Truman Moore and Jacob Nicolds with 7 boards each. The Wildcats were led by Pope with 12 points. Ten of the 12 Tigers were able to get in the scoring column also.
