GAME 29 - 02/26/16
 by Jose Garcia, AZPreps365

One by one they filed out of the arena to the arms of anxious parents waiting to congratulate them.

The cheers grew louder as each of Sunnyslope’s basketball players exited. On Friday night, Grand Canyon University belonged to Sunnyslope High School.

Now it’s time to see if Gila River Arena will be as welcoming come Monday in the Division I boys state championship basketball game. The strong-willed team keeps earning its big stage settings and did so again with Friday’s hard-fought semifinal 46-43 victory over another solid team, Gilbert.

When it takes the court Monday in the program’s first ever state title appearance in the state’s highest division, Sunnyslope will be facing a mirror image of itself. D-I finalist Mesa High also likes to scratch and claw its way to victory.

Of the top-10 seeded teams in the D-I tournament, Mesa and Sunnyslope allowed the least amount of points per game this season, with both of them giving up just under 49 points per game. Sunnyslope’s defense delivered one of the biggest plays of the game against Gilbert with about 43 seconds left in the game.

Gilbert was trying to run a play for one of its two big threats, Jacob Nicolds or Chris Bowling, with Gilbert trailing 40-38. But sophomore Kyle Fischer anticipated a pass to Nicolds, stole the ball and sprinted down the court.

Fischer (12 points) was fouled but made both free throws, handing Sunnyslope a 4-point lead. Nicold scored on the next possession, but after Sunnyslope made two more free throws, Gilbert then turned the ball over on a night it took good care of the ball.

Converting field goals is where Gilbert (4 of 21 in the first half) struggled. It went 0-9 from three-point land while Sunnyslope made five first half treys.

But Caden Towt made back-to-back threes in the third period to kick-start Gilbert’s offense. Gilbert had a chance at a five-point play when Bowling (14 points) made a three and Gilbert’s C.J. Waters was immediately fouled after the shot, sending Waters to the line.

Waters made one of the free throws to get Gilbert within a point of the lead, 35-34 with 7:09 left. Gilbert got within one point of tying Sunnsyslope again a couple of times later, but Sunnyslope never gave in.

The final time Gilbert was ahead in the game was when it held a 5-3 lead.

“Our guys just work hard,” Sunnyslope coach Ray Portela said. “They are tenacious.”

Dane Maggi, Portela’s senior leader, scored a game-high 15 points for 25-4 Sunnyslope.

●●● GILBERT -  MOUNTAIN VIEW ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
GAME 28 - 02/24/16
 By Jason P. Skoda, Tribune
One more loss and the state quarterfinals might have become the official end point on the season schedule for the Gilbert boys basketball team.

Instead the Tigers got past what seemed to be annual sticking point by beating Mountain View 51-44 in overtime on Wednesday at Wells Fargo Arena to qualify for the semifinals for the first time since 2008-09.

“A little a bit of a monkey (on their backs), I guess,” Gilbert coach Jay Caserio said. “We had been here four years in a row and kind of got our butts handed to us a couple of times. It’s a big leap but I don’t think it is where they want to stop.”

The quarterfinals might have been it again if 6-foot-7 senior Chris Bowling didn’t take over at the end of the fourth quarter and overtime.

Bowling scored nine of his game-high 25 points and grabbed several key rebounds in overtime, but it took some work to get to the extra session.

The two teams were rarely separated by more than a two possession game as it was tied at 31 after three quarters.

"I'm a Midwest kind of guy - Tom Izzo, defend, rebuond," said Caserio, who is from Michigan. "Gary’s teams pride themselves on defending and rebounding., We talked about executing on both sides of the basketball because we knew every possession was going to be pretty crucial."

The fifth-seeded Toros (17-9) went up 36-32 with 5:16 remaining in the fourth on Jayton Brown’s 3-pointer but Bowling answered with a 3-pointer of his own and then connected on another one with 1:33 left to tie it at 40.

Mountain View ran down the clock from there for one final shot with Tommy Kuhse getting an off balanced attempt off that was too deep.

Both defenses played well and kept, but Mountain View, which was led by Zane Jowaiszas' 10 points, struggled most of the night as the Toros shot 28.3 percent.

Kuhse, the team's top shooter, was 2 of 12 from the field and the team made just 4 of 21 3-point attempts.

“We couldn’t get it going offensively the whole game,” Mountain View coach Gary Ernst said. “We had a crummy night shooting all game. That’s partly on us and a lot on them.”

The overtime period started with a Bowling 3-pointer, his fourth of the game, and then he made six straight free throws down the stretch, getting the Tigers (19-7) closer to Friday’s semifinals with each successful make.

“It gave us the lead but we still had to finish the game,” Bowling said of his 3-pointer to start overtime. “It was a big hump to get over, losing in the quarterfinals the last four years. We finally made it over that hump and we will try and keep it going.”

Mountain View, which made the semifinals last year, had higher hopes for the season, but Ernst said the senior class left a lasting impression.

“They had nine straight wins coming into this one,” Ernst said. “They had a great season, and obviously this is going to hurt them a whole lot.”

The fourth-seeded Tigers will play either No. 8 Sunnyslope or No. 1 Corona del Sol on Friday at GCU in an attempt to make the program’s first state title appearance since winning it in 2003.

“We were struggling a little bit (at mid-season),” said Bowling, who also had 11 rebounds. “After that we were grinding and grinding. We stepped up our play and it ended up working out great.”

●●● GILBERT -  DOBSON ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
GAME 27 - 02/20/16
The Tigers opened up 2016 state tournament play with a home game versus the Dobson Mustangs Saturday night and came away with an exciting overtime victory by a score of 74 - 65. This was the first time the Tigers faced Dobson this year and Dobson came out of the gates on fire. Dobson has the ability to score in bunches as they put 4 to 5 guys on the court at all times that can shoot deep and drive impressively to the basket. The Tigers started out 5 - 0, but before you blinked Dobson regained the lead 10 - 5. Stevie Newendyke sparked the Tigers at the four minute mark of the first quarter with two threes and the Tigers were able to continue to execute to their game plan of getting the ball inside and held on to a 19 - 14 lead at the end of the first quarter.

The second quarter continued as the first and the Tigers just could not stop #12 Kendrick Williams as he scored 13 straight points. The Tigers answered with their own run as Jacob Nicolds tallied 9 points in the quarter and Stevie Newendyke with two more threes and 8 of his own points in the second. The Tigers held a seven point lead at the break by a score of 39-32.

To start the second half the Tigers made an adjustment defensively by putting Nick LaMancusa on #12 Williams and he did a great job of slowing him down. Williams scored 19 points in the first half, but 0 in the second half and fouled out in the early parts of the 4th quarter. With Williams out of the game the Tigers looked to control the game, but Dobson had other plans as #3 Matthews took over getting the ball to the basket and getting his teammates open threes as Dobson connected on 10 threes for the game.

The Tigers still were holding on to a 7 point lead going into the 4th quarter, but it evaporated quickly. Dobson came roaring back with a barrage of baskets to tie the game with 6 seconds left and the Tigers inbounding on the sideline to try to win at the buzzer. The Tigers inbound pass went off of Jacob Nicolds' hands and Dobson had their chance to win it having to go the distance in 5 seconds. The Tigers actually did a good job with a foul to give and then executing great defense that didn't allow Dobson to get a good look. OVERTIME!

The Tigers did a great job executing in overtime and outscored Dobson 15 - 6 to secure the 2nd round playoff victory. Dobson had four players in double figure with Williams leading the way with 19 points. For the Tigers, Jacob Nicolds had a monster game with 38 points and 5 rebounds and also going 23-27 from the line. Also having a huge game was Stevie Newendyke scoring 24 points and hauling in an impressive 10 rebounds. Chris Bowling had a quiet night scoring, but pulled down 10 rebounds himself, especially down the stretch in OT.

Up next for the Tigers is a rematch of last year's quarterfinal game versus the Mountain View Toros where MTV really took it to the Tigers. The game is Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 at ASU's Wells Fargo. There is a spirit bus for the GOONS and the Tigers will need all the support they can get to be successful on Wednesday.

●●● GILBERT -  CORONA DEL SOL ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
GAME 26 - 02/10/16

The Corona Del Sol boys basketball team showed Gilbert on Wednesday exactly why it is still the top team in the state.

No. 1 Corona Del Sol was down by seven points in its last game of the season, but an 18-9 run in the third quarter lifted the team over No. 3 Gilbert, 53-46.

The Aztecs trailed the Tigers originally, who scored 28 first half points and came out aggressively in the early minutes of the game, with Chris Bowling and Jacob Nichols leading the way for Gilbert.

Much of the first-half did not go Corona’s way, as turnovers and lackluster defense failed to stop the hard-hitting Gilbert offense.

But Corona small forward Shane Grier did not let the five-point deficit midway get him down.

“Coach just really told us in the locker room that we needed to focus on what we knew going into the game,” Grier said. “We needed to really focus on swinging the ball more, driving and knocking down our open shots and so that’s what I did.”

Opening up the second half, Grier was a bright spot for the Aztecs, nailing back-to-back-to-back 3-pointers and giving Corona its first lead with three minutes remaining in the third quarter.

Corona coach Neil MacDonald said Grier was a large part of their offensive attack.

“Shane stepped up and did what Shane does really well and that’s shoot the ball with confidence and that was a big difference for us tonight—that was huge,” MacDonald said.

Junior guard Saben Lee also sparked a huge second half for Corona, including a dunk in the closing minutes of regulation. He finished the game with 14 points, 10 of which were scored in the final minutes.

The Aztecs will now get ready for the playoffs, which will be announced on Saturday. He said it is likely his team will rest up before the first round begins next week.

“We put ourselves through the grinder this year,” MacDonald said. “So we’ll take a day or two off here and focus on some individual shooting work.”

●●● GILBERT - HIGHLAND ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
GAME 25 - 02/04/16
Chris Bowling and Jacob Nicolds may not have said goodbye to home games at Gilbert High. Especially if they continue to play the way they did on Thursday night.

They celebrated a night partly in their honor -- Senior Night -- by combining for 48 points in essentially a wire-to-wire 67-52 win over rival Highland at The Jungle.

"They (Bowling and Nicolds) have played varsity since their sophomore year and have gotten better and better," Gilbert coach Jay Caserio said. "This game was kind of similar to the one we played against them last week. That one was tied at halftime, and then we made a run in the third quarter. We've played very well since the first of the year."

Gilbert (17-6 overall, 14-3 power-ranking games) won for the ninth time in its last 10 games and is tied with Corona del Sol for the Division I Section I title. Those teams meet on Wednesday (Feb. 10) to decide the section winner. Highland has suddenly gone in the other direction, absorbing its fifth consecutive loss to fall to 14-10. Gilbert was No. 4 in the power-rankings at the start of play Thursday and Highland was No. 8. The top eight teams in the power-rankings get a first-round bye and a home game in the second round at state.

Nicolds had the hot hand in the first half helping Gilbert break out to a 15-9 lead after one quarter and improve the margin to 29-20 by halftime. Nicolds scored 13 of his 21 points in the first half and made 5-of-6 field goals in the half. Bowling began heating up late in the second quarter with back-to-back threes.

Bowling was just getting untracked with his offense before halftime. He sank two quick threes in he third quarter to key an 8-0 run that pushed Gilbert's lead to 37-22. Bowling tallied 18 of his 26 points in the second half.

Highland's 6-foot-9 forward Tim Fuller, its leading scorer, had a difficult night with persistent foul trouble and Gilbert making him its defensive focus. Fuller sat out a chunk of the second period with two fouls and in the third period added his third and fourth. To Highland's credit, they made a run late in the third period with Fuller out as Iisia Washington (eight points) and Nick Lott (team-high 15 points) helped slice the lead to 41-36 by quarter's end.

Gilbert pushed the lead back to double digits with an 8-2 run to begin the final quarter. When Fuller returned with six minutes to play, Gilbert was back in control. Fuller finished with 12 points, but without a couple teammates who had fouled out a comeback was not forthcoming.

"I'm happy with the way we're playing right now," Caserio said. "Every team has a rough stretch. We had ours at Christmas. Highland is going through one now."

●●● GILBERT -  DESERT VISTA ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
GAME 24 - 02/02/16
The Tigers were on the road Tuesday night and up against a well coached and ultra athletic Desert Vista Thunder team who are led by the trio of Tarik Cool, Caleb Simmons and DJ Hamilton. The game was never outside of 4 or 5 points all night and the Tigers were able to make enough plays on both sides of the ball late in the fourth quarter to hold on 60-56.

The Tigers were unsure what offense they were going to have to execute as Desert Vista uses a variety of defenses. The Thunder came out in a 2-3 zone and the Tigers did a nice job of getting the ball to the nail and in the short corners for high percentage shots, mainly by Jacob Nicolds and CJ Waters. As the Tigers found some success around the basket the perimeter started to open up shots for Chris Bowling who scored a game high 22 points. Going into the locker room the Tigers held a slight 4 point advantage by a score of 31-27.

The Tigers struggled in the third quarter on the offensive end and just couldn't get their hands on the 50/50 ball and the Thunder outscored the Tigers by 5 and took a 1 point lead going into the final quarter. The Tigers had a big fourth quarter though scoring 24 points and regaining the lead and holding on with execution, passing and great free throw shooting as they went 17-18 from the line for the game.

Also scoring in double figures for the Tigers was Jacob Nicolds scoring 18 points and CJ Waters with 12 points. Double digit scorers for the Thunder were Adonis Arms with 12 points and Tarik Cool with 11 points.

●●● GILBERT - MOUNTAIN POINTE ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
GAME 23 - 01/29/16
On the night where the Gilbert Tiger basketball program honored the varsity parents before the game the Tigers were able to pull away from the Pride late in the game to secure the victory by a score of 70 - 59.

The Tigers started the game well, with the help of Chris Bowling's sharp shooting, as they were able to score very efficiently versus Mountain Pointe's man to man defense and were up 23 - 11 at the end of the first quarter. The coaching staff knew it was just a matter of time before the Mountain Pointe switched to their zone trapping defense and when they did in the late first quarter, the tide switched to the Pride. The trap caused numerous turnovers and turnovers for layups. The Tigers used a timeout to try to talk about how to attack, but they just couldn't get a good feel for it. Before you knew it the Pride took the lead and at the break the Tigers were down one point at 33 - 32. The Tigers were even on the boards, but 10 costly turnovers in the first half.

The Pride came out in the second half and were able to score a few buckets to take a 5 point lead and it didn't look promising for the Tigers. Finally, the Tigers started to find open spots in the Pride defense and took advantage and went on a 14-0 run late in the third quarter to take a 52 - 44 lead going into the final stanza. On that important run the Tigers got big baskets by Trajon Hawkins, Nick LaMancusa, Caden Towt and CJ Waters.

The 4th quarter went back and forth for both teams, but the Tigers were able to maintain that double digit lead for the most part. Good spacing, passing and free throw shooting by the Tigers made it difficult for the Pride to really cut into the lead. The Tigers were lead in scoring by Chris Bowling's 24 points, including 4 big blocks. Also scoring double digit points was CJ Waters with 14 points, including going 8 for 9 from the free throw line. Jacob Nicolds scored a loud 7 points as he also had 11 rebounds, 5 assists and was in total control for most of the game.

Up next for the Tigers is a similar game versus the talented and athletic Desert Vista Thunder Tuesday night on the road. The Thunder, coached by Tony Darden, return some quality members from last year's team that played in the D1 state championship. The Tigers will have to be sharp and bring their A game on all three levels to have any type of success.

●●● GILBERT -  HIGHLAND ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
GAME 22 - 01/26/16
The Tigers bounced back after a tough loss last week at Basha with a nice win on the road over a well coached and talented Highland Hawks team by a score of 59 - 54. The Gilbert versus Highland basketball games are one of the better rivalries in the state and Tuesday night did not disappoint as both student sections were out in full force. Both teams started the game sharp as the Tigers were connecting on some perimeter shots and Highland was punishing the Tigers around the basket mainly by Weber State commit Tim Fuller who led the Hawks with 14 points. The Hawks out rebounded the Tigers 22-11 in the first half. The game was knotted up at 13 at the end of the first quarter.

The second quarter saw some more scoring by both teams and it was Jacob Nicolds doing the damage for the Tigers. Highland was face guarding Chris Bowling (14 points) so the Tigers used him to ball screen for Jacob and create space to drive and find teammates for open shots. Jacob tallied 13 of his game high 22 points in the second quarter and got to the free throw line 7 times in that second quarter alone. If it wasn't for some forced shots and poor decisions the coaching staff believed they could of been ahead going into the locker room, but credit to Highland taking advantage and tying the game up at 31 all at the half.

The third was the deciding quarter for the game for the Tigers as they outscored the Hawks 13-8. The Tigers defended and rebound well and did a much better job executing for good shots, which also helped the Tigers with their defense and rebounding. The Tigers found themselves up double digit points early in the fourth quarter and got a huge offensive boost from Trajon Hawkins with 7 straight points including a key corner three. The Tigers did a pretty good job of executing full court press breakers and half court offense to keep the Hawks at bay.

The Tigers and Hawks will have a rematch next Thursday night in The Jungle as Highland is the only team on the schedule that they play twice in the regular season. Up next though before the rematch the Tigers have a home game Friday night versus one of the more athletic teams in the state in the Mountain Pointe Pride. Also, Friday night is parent night where we honor all of our parents of our varsity program. Please come support the Tigers Friday night.

●●● GILBERT - BASHA ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
GAME 21 - 01/22/16
The Tigers dropped a road game Friday night at the Basha Bears. Basha coming off a closely contested game versus the defending state champs of Corona where they lost a close game were very focused Friday night and played very well too. Right from the start Basha senior Antwan Ross-Jones was on fire connecting on 5 first quarter threes and 6 for the game finishing with a game high 31 points. It didn't matter who covered him and how we covered him as he was hitting from all over the court. The Tigers found themselves down 22-13 after the 1st quarter and 35-22 at the half. The Tigers had a chance to be only down 11 at the break, but a poor coaching decision allowed the Bears to get exactly what they wanted without any resistance, which ended in an impressive alley-oop dunk to Gabe McGlothan who finished the night with 12 points himself.

The Tigers played fairly well after the rough first quarter start, but it was obvious that the Tigers were going to have to pick up their defenses to get back in the game. From about the half way point of the third quarter the Tiger's full court defense started chipping away at their deficit and with about 30 seconds in the game the Tigers had Stevie Newendyke on the free throw line shooting a 1-1 down only 4 points. Stevie made the first and missed the second in which Jacob Nicolds recovered, but the ball got knocked away to a Basha Bear. The Bears made their two free throws to pretty much sealed the victory.

The Tigers showed a lot of resolve being down double digit points to one of the best teams in the state and coming back at the end. The Tigers were led by Jacob Nicolds' 14 points and Chris Bowling's 13 points. The Tigers have to regroup quickly as they play their cross-town rivals of the Highland Hawks on the road Tuesday night who are one of the better teams in the state and have one of the best bigs in Tim Fuller who is averaging 20 points and 12 rebounds and committed to Weber State to play basketball.

●●● GILBERT -  HAMILTON ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
GAME 20 - 01/19/16
The Tigers played a solid game Tuesday night in The Jungle versus a young Hamilton Huskies team and came away with a victory by the score of 59 - 40. The Huskies started the game with more energy and concentration than the Tigers as they beat the Tigers up the court in transition, hurt the Tigers on the offensive glass and ran their zone well turning the Tigers over 7 times in the first half overall.

The Tigers offensively struggled to hit perimeter shots and at times forced the issue which resulted in turnovers. When the Tigers did get some quality looks around the basket and in the paint they didn't fall. One bright spot on the offensive end was the Tigers were able to get to the free throw line 14 times, but making only 9 of them, which isn't terrible, but could be better. The Tigers held a slight 20 - 17 lead.

The Tigers came out of the locker room very impressively outscoring the Huskies 21 - 4 in the third quarter pushing the Tiger's lead to 20+. The Tigers third quarter was sparked by Stevie Newendyke's and Trajon Hawkins' sharp shooting as they went a combined 7/8 from the three point line for the game. Player of the game for the Tigers though was CJ Waters as he earned a double-double on the night with 15 points and 10 rebounds and many of the Tigers 3 pointers came because of CJ's ORB and creating multiple offensive possessions for the Tigers.

Up next for the Tigers is a road game versus the Basha Bears who are one of the better teams in the state. Basha, who is coached by Mike Grothaus, played for the Gilbert Tigers and won a state championship in 2003 under legendary coach Tom Bennett. The Bears exemplify Coach Grothaus as they play with toughness, they defend as a team and might be the best rebounding team in the state. Basha has waves of size and athleticism and the Tigers will have to bring their A game Friday night.

●●● GILBERT -  BOULDER CREEK ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
GAME 19 - 01/14/16
The Tigers played a rare Thursday night home game versus a very skilled Boulder Creek team last night and were fortunate enough to sneak by with a CJ Waters buzzer beating tip in.

The Tigers seemed to be in a funk offensively for the better part of the game, except one nice stretch in the third quarter. Give credit to the Jags as their defense and rebounding was solid all night long. After a slow paced first half the Tigers went into the locker room with a slight 21 - 18 lead. The Jags, one of the better shooting teams in the state, connected on 5 three pointers in the first half and 9 overall for the game.

The Tigers finally got in a groove in the third quarter and went on a run to take a double digit lead, but steady play by BC kept them in the game, which they're never out of with their ability to shoot the deep ball. The Tigers lead steadily slipped away as BC made big shot after big shot by Justin Braun (12 points), Matt Downey (11 points) and Nick Johnson (8 points). The game all of the sudden was notched at 44 with under a minute left. The Tigers tried to execute a set, but BC defended it perfectly. To the credit of the Tigers they didn't force the issue or panic and were able to run offense until 6 seconds left, which the Tigers called timeout. Confusion in the timeout on where the ball was being in bounded caused the Tigers to have to take back to back timeouts. Thankfully they had another left. The Tigers were able to execute a sideline inbounds play very well, which led to the Jaguars having to over rotate off of CJ Waters who tipped in Jacob Nicolds' missed shot to get the W at the buzzer.

The Tigers were led by Chris Bowling who earned a double-double scoring 18 points and grabbing 11 rebounds. Jacob Nicolds also scored double digit points with 12 points. Up next for the Tigers is another home game versus the Hamilton Huskies next Tuesday. Hamilton has a new coach for the first time in their history. Kevin Hartwig, who is regarded as one of the best in the state, retired last year and Doug Harris took over the program. Coach Harris is as good as they get. He won a state championship with Desert Vista about 10 years ago. The Tigers are excited for the challenge.

●●● GILBERT -  CHANDLER ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
GAME 18 - 01/12/16
The Tigers took on the talented and athletic Wolves on the road Tuesday and snuck out with a 58 - 55 victory. The Tigers started the game very sharp as they found their way for layups and great, high percentage shots leading to a 19 - 6 first quarter lead. As good teams always do though Chandler bounced back with their own impressive quarter outscoring the Tigers 21 - 13. Caden Towt who was assigned the difficult challenge of covering Chandler's high scoring stud N'Keal Harry picked up his second foul early in the second quarter, which caused some real match up problems for the Tigers. Harry scored 9 points in the quarter (20 points for the game) and got to the line 8 times. The Tigers held a slight 32-27 lead going into the locker room.

To the start the second half somehow the Tigers forgot about a player named N'Keal Harry as he got the inbound pass and simply drove right to the cup for an uncontested layup. The third quarter was played solid by both teams on both ends of the court and the Tigers got timely 3 pointers by Dylan Roach and Trajon Hawkins. With that said the Wolves were able to outscore the Tigers in the third by 2 points and chip Gilbert's lead to 44 - 41.

The 4th quarter the Wolves pressure combined with some really poor decision making by the Tigers allowed Chandler to take the lead three different times. Many of those poor decisions ended with thunderous dunks by Tevion Jones (19 points) who looks to be a promising sophomore. To the Tigers credit, they were able to be mentally strong enough to make enough plays to regain those leads they had for the majority of the game. Timely free throws by Chris Bowling and Jacob Nicolds, good execution on some offensive sets and changing defensive schemes allowed to the Tigers to hold on.

The Tigers were led by their two senior captains in Nicolds and Bowling. Jacob with another double-double scoring a game high 23 points and pulling down another 10 boards. Chris earned his own double-double scoring 12 points coupled with 11 rebounds including a huge offensive rebound put back late in the game.

The Tigers need to get back at it quickly as they only have one day of practice to prepare for Boulder Creek as they come to town Thursday night. Boulder Creek is one of the top shooting teams in the state as they often play 5 guys who can shoot from deep. Hope to see the GOONS out in full force.

●●● GILBERT -  PERRY ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
GAME 17 - 01/08/16
The Tigers were at home Friday night versus a well coached Perry team and were looking to avenge a loss versus the Pumas who beat the Tigers in the Holiday tournament two weeks ago.

The Tigers started the game defensively pretty sound throughout the first half, but it was the offensive rebound that doomed the Tigers as they were out-rebounded by 6 in the first half and gave up 9 offensive rebounds, mainly by #35 John Schlangen who led the Pumas with 13 points in the game. Despite the disappointing rebounding numbers the Tigers still led by 2 going into the locker room.

The good shots the Tigers worked for in the first half that didn't fall started to drop in the second half which led to the Tigers outscoring the Pumas 21-8 in the third quarter, including 4 threes as a team and 11 big points by Chris Bowling. The Tigers led 38-23 going into the final stanza, but the Pumas didn't go quietly as they worked for good shots and caused some problems for the Tigers with some full court pressure. Credit to the Tigers and their good free-throw shooting (18-22) to help keep Perry from getting too close.

The Tigers were led in scoring by Chris Bowling's 20 points and 8 rebounds. Also scoring double digit points was Jacob Nicolds notching 10 points and pulling down 6 rebounds. Junior CJ Waters chipped in with 6 points and another 8 big boards. Another solid night defensively for the Tigers as a team and individually by Caden Towt as he was assigned Perry's efficient scoring PG Kyle Van Haren and limiting him to 10 tough points on the night.

Up next for the Tigers is a tough road contest versus the well coached and ultra-athletic Chandler Wolves. Even though dropping a contest on the road versus the Mesa Jackrabbits on Friday night, the Wolves are one of the hottest teams in the state and always tough to beat at their place.

●●● GILBERT -  MOUNTAIN VIEW ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
GAME 16 - 01/05/16
The Tigers bounced back from a rough Holiday tournament where they dropped all four games in the Visit Mesa tournament held at Mountain View HS as they traveled back to Mountain View to play the Toros in the first power point game of 2016 and held off a very good team by a score of 65 - 52.

The Toros started off the game very efficiently as they had the Tigers on their heels with their PG, Tommy Kuhse dicing up the Tigers for baskets (game high 27 points) and getting his teammates involved. After the Tigers were able to finally settle down and find a groove they were able to take the lead in the early parts of the 2nd quarter, which they never relinquished. Stevie Newendyke's two second quarter three pointers sparked the Tigers run and held a 33 - 29 halftime lead going into the locker room.

The Tigers came out in the second half and finally put two good halves of basketball together as this was a difficult task in the four games in the Visit Mesa tournament. The Tigers outscored the Toros in the third quarter 17 - 10, which helped push their lead to double digits. The Tigers had a quality 4th quarter too as Tommy Kuhse kept forcing the issue with drives and timely baskets by Zane Jowaiszas, which kept the Toros in the game.

Jacob Nicolds had a monster game finishing with 25 points and 8 rebounds. Jacob was in control the entire game and looked like a seasoned senior letting the game come to him. Also scoring double digit points was CJ Waters chipping in with 10 points and 7 boards, followed by Chris Bowling's 8 points and 9 rebounds. The Tigers also got great contributions offensively from Caden Towt (7 points), Trajon Hawkins (6 points) and Stevie Newendyke (6 points).

Big shout out to the GOONS who came out to support the boys on the road. Much appreciated! The Tigers will need your help again this Friday as the Perry Pumas come to the Jungle. The Pumas took down the Tigers in the Holiday tournament in a closely contested game, so the Tigers are excited to get a rematch. Come out and support!
