  GILBERT VS MARICOPA -  February 11, 2020  

 


On the night where we were able to honor our seniors the Tigers played very very well defeating the Maricopa Rams by the score of 91 - 40 which included all 9 of our seniors getting into the scoring column.

The game started quickly for the Tigers with back to back buckets by senior Spencer Taylor who earned his first start as a Tiger, then Brycen Long and Paul Maldonado followed that up with back to back to back threes, culminating with a Griffin Lamb slam in transition. Tigers up 29-12 at the end of the first quarter. The second quarter was much of the same for the Tigers with a Griffin Lamb three ball to start and Jaqwaun Myles' 10 points from steals and driving buckets. Going into the locker room at the break the Tigers were up big, 55-23.

The second half was very solid too with the Tigers outscoring the Rams in the 3rd quarter 22-9, including three more from downtown. High scorers on the night were Brycen Long's 20 points, Griffin Lamb's 16 points and Jaqwaun Myles' 12 points. Paul Maldonado had a nice floor game, defending, assisting on many of his teammates baskets and hitting two timely threes.

The real story of the game though were our 9 seniors: Brycen Long, Taylor Baldwin, Griffin Lamb, Herold Merrick, Spencer Taylor, Jaqwaun Myles, Paul Maldonado, Juan Cordova and Ian Splittorff. The seniors played for each other on this night and represented the Tigers well. It was a great night to be a TIger!

Playoff Time is up next for the Tigers. It looks like the Tigers will have earned themselves a top 8 seed which includes a 1st Round bye on Friday night. The Tigers finalized seed will not be known though until Saturday afternoon when the AIA has their Selection Show. It looks though that the Tigers will host the 2nd Round State Tournament game next Wednesday at 7P in The Jungle with the opponent yet to be determined. Thanks to all the GOONS, parents and fans for your continued support and we will need it for the playoffs too! GO TIGERS!

  GILBERT VS CAMPO VERDE -  February 04, 2020  

 


The Tigers were on the road Tuesday night versus one of their cross-town rivals of the Campo Verde Coyotes and came away with a 69-37 victory and improving their San Tan Region record to 8-0 and overall record to 20-4 on the season.

The Tigers started the game pretty sharp on offense with 20 first quarter points and spreading the wealth with 6 guys scoring. The defense was not quite as tight as the coaching staff would have liked to see, but the Tigers quickly fixed that by holding the Coyotes to only 2 points in the second quarter and went into the locker room with a 40-16 lead.

The second half was a little closer, but the Tigers did win each quarter which was nice to see. The Tigers were led in scoring and rebounding by Griffin Lamb who notched another double-double with 17 points and 10 rebounds. The Tigers shot the ball pretty good, which included two from downtown from Griffin. Also scoring in double figure points for the Tigers was Brycen Long with 15 points. Brycen also pulled down 6 boards and had 5 takeaways. Inside coaching staff joke there. Tampa Scott continues to play excellent basketball too, scoring 10 points off the bench and at times it looks like he has the ball on a string when handling it.

Up next for the Tigers is another San Tan Region game on the road Friday night versus the Higley Knights. Thanks to all the parents, students and fans they came out to support the guys!

  GILBERT VS CASTEEL -  January 31, 2020  

 


Gilbert deals Casteel 91-62 defeat
January 31, 2020 by Les Willsey, AZPreps365

Gilbert High knows where its going in a couple of weeks. That's to the playoffs to try and defend its 5A boys basketball title. Casteel is not so fortunate.

No. 4 Gilbert was ready for Casteel's up-tempo, pressure style winning often in the transition game as the Tigers delivered a 92-61 thumping of the Colts at The Jungle.

Gilbert remained unbeaten in 5A San Tan Region play at 7-0 and extending its region record the past two seasons in the region to 17-0. Gilbert is 19-4 overall and 13-2 in power-ranking games. Casteel (8-15, 3-4 region and 6-9 prg) likely needs to win out to qualify for a play-in game at the No. 24 position. The Colts were No. 25 in Friday's latest power rankings.

Both teams competed Friday without key starters - Gilbert missing Brycen Long and Casteel Caelan Russell. Both were among their teams top two scorers this season and Long a veteran of last year's title team.

So without Long, Gilbert picked up a bigger than normal night from one of its other starters from last year - Paul Maldonado. Maldonado piled up 25 points mixing in four threes, transition hoops and strong moves to the basket for his points.

Picking up for Long in a starting role and off the bench, respectively, were Taylor Baldwin (eight points) and Nikko Pentelute (15 points). Long was adept as a finisher for three of his baskets and Pentelute showed confidence in burying a three for his first basket and delivered from there on offense.

"The game Casteel plays is not ours," Gilbert coach Jay Caserio said. "Without Brycen we were focused on good ball handling and limiting turnovers. We had 13 turnovers for the game. Given the number of possessions there were that wasn't a bad number.

"We were good in transition. For the most part we made good decisions when we had 3 on 2s and 2s on 1."

Gilbert made 34 field goals and at least 23 were lay-ups. The Tigers led 17-8 after the first quarter, 45-27 at halftime and 75-52 after three periods. A running clock kicked in with six minutes to play.

Additional double-figure scorers for Gilbert were guard Tampa Scott (18 points) and Griffin Lamb (10).

Casteel, which made mass substitutions to keep players fresh, was led in scoring by Devin Franks (20 points). The Colts have three games left -- all region games vs. Williams Field, Maricopa and Campo Verde. They are chasing Flowing Wells and Marana Mountain View for the final two spots. Both of those schools lost on Friday night. Campo Verde is right behind Casteel at No. 26 and not out of the chase for postseason.

  GILBERT VS HIGLEY -  January 21, 2020  

 


For the second game in a row in The Jungle the Tigers were able to take down a San Tan Region foe by beating the Higley Knights by a score of 80 - 31. The Tigers from the jump were very sharp on both sides of the ball and for the first time in many games their play forced the opponent to burn an early timeout to stop the scoring run.

The Tigers jumped out to a 28- 11 first quarter lead by using a variety of full court pressure defenses which ended up leading to mainly Paul Maldonado and Brycen Long baskets. In fact Paul and Brycen combined for 19 of the Tigers 28 first quarter points. The second quarter individual scoring was a little more balanced, but crisp ball movement and pressuring defense led to a 21 point quarter culminated by a beautiful pass by Juan Cordova to a thunderous Griffin Lamb two handed dunk at the buzzer to take the Tigers in the locker room with a 49 - 16 lead.

The coaching staff was pleased to see the same effort and concentration to start the second half. The Tigers ran out to another 25 point quarter and defensively held the Knights to just 4 points in the third. Double digit scorers on the night were leading scorer Brycen Long with 20 points, Paul Maldonado with 19 points including 5 threes and Griffin Lamb with another double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Higley was led by their promising sophomore Devereaux Roberts with 12 points.

Up next for the Tigers is another long road trip to Maricopa Friday night who are led by numerous underclassmen and Coach Fuller who is as good as they get in Arizona.

  GILBERT VS CASTEEL -  January 14, 2020  

 


The Tigers were back in region play Tuesday and playing their 3rd straight game on the road versus the well-coached Casteel Colts and played just well enough to pull out a 77 - 69 victory.

Casteel comes in with a fast-paced offense with multiple players with the ability to make shots, spear-headed by their leading scorer on the season, Deven Franks who is averaging 23 ppg. The Tigers started the game well, but Casteel, like they normally do, made shots to tie the score at 13 at the end of the 1st quarter. There was a little bit more scoring in the second quarter and the Tigers went into the locker room with a 4 point lead.

The Tigers went on a bit of a run to start the third quarter and had a chance to really put the clamps on the Colts, but timely three pointers got the Casteel within striking distance at the end of the period. Tigers 56, Colts 47. In the final stanza, Deven Franks was able to score 9 of his 19 points and running teammate Caelan Russell scored 7 of his 17 points to bring Casteel within 5 points. Countering, the Tigers took care of the ball and converted shots around the rim much better in the second half to keep the Colts at bay. Leading the Tigers in scoring was Brycen Long with 25 points. Griffin Lamb also scored 18 points and pulled down 13 rebounds. Paul Maldonado chipped in with 10 points too. Taylor Baldwin played a very very solid game in his first start this season with 9 points and it was evident his presence on the court affected the game on both sides of the ball.

Up next for the Tigers is home contest versus the cross-town rivals of Campo Verde Coyotes on Friday at 7P. See you there Goon Squad.

  GILBERT VS MILLENNIUM - January  09, 2020  

 


 A trip to South Carolina, facing future Power 5 basketball players, did wonders for Goodyear Millennium's team, despite going 1-3 in the Beach Ball Classic.

In its first game since the trip, Millennium looked every bit like the No. 1 team in Arizona, dominating Gilbert from the opening tip in a 72-43 rout at Millennium that was a rematch of last year's 5A championship game.

Gilbert (12-4) beat Millennium 38-37 in last year's state championship game on its way to a 29-1 season.

Gilbert has lost two of its last three games.

Millennium returned everybody from last year's team. But the Tigers didn't need 6-foot-9 junior DaRon Holmes to be at his best to get out to a 23-13 first-quarter lead that increased from there.

Holmes, who came into the game averaging 20.9 points, didn't score in the first quarter when he picked up two fouls.

He ended up with 14 points. Jackson, a junior point guard who is starting to get some high major college interest, showed off his increased shooting range and finished with 15 points.

"It was difficult," Holmes said. "Sometimes the refs are not on our side. You just have to battle it all out."

Holmes' supporting cast this year is stronger, because the players around him are a year older and a year better. Included in that bunch is Jackson, who averaged 11.5 points and 4.1 assists.

"We were trying to speed them up," Jackson said. "Last year, at state, they slowed us down."

Jackson said the trip to one of the biggest high school basketball invitationals in the nation helped.

"We played Marquette, Duke commits," Jackson said.

It was a difficult return for Millennium coach Ty Amundsen, who attended his mother's burial in the Bay Area in Northern California on Sunday.

"It was real difficult," Amundsen said.

Amundsen said it was important to come out fast on Thursday, even if his star player isn't doing most of the scoring.

"We've got depth," Amundsen said. "I think that's the one thing that gets overlooked on the team. You've got a guy like DaRon, and Justus Jackson. There are other guys who are very capable of playing.

"Our goal was to come in and use 10, 11, 12 guys, and keep that pressure on them."

Amundsen was able to empty his bench in the final quarter after the Tigers built a 30-point lead and got a running clock on Gilbert.

Jalan Early hit two 3-pointers in the first quarter for Millennium. Robbie Devries also hit a 3 in that big first quarter for the Tigers.

Gilbert was led by guard Brycen Long's 13 points.

  GILBERT VS WILLIAMS FIELD - January 07, 2020  

 


The Tigers opened up 2020 and region play in THE JUNGLE Tuesday night versus the Williams Field Blackhawks and came away with a 70-50 victory, including a program sweep as both the JV and Freshman teams were able to come away with victories too.

The Tigers started off the game a little rusty and connecting from long range was a bit of a struggle, but the defense was strong enough to hold a 14-9 lead at the end of the first quarter. The offense started clicking in the second quarter leading to an 18 point quarter, sparked by Jaqwaun Myles' 10 points and 6 for 6 from the freethrow line. Montez Taylor who led Williams Field with 19 points knocked a big three at the buzzer, but the Tigers still held a 12 point lead by the score of 32-20.

The Tiger defense wasn't quite as locked-in in the second half, but Gilbert was able to slightly increase their lead each quarter. Offensively, Griffin Lamb led the Tigers with 21 points, including knocking down a nice three, a tip slam and going 2 for 2 from the line too. Also scoring double figure points for the Tigers was Houston Baptist commit Brycen Long with 18 points and Jaqwaun Myles with 16 points.

Up next for the Tigers is a big road game Thursday night as the Tigers go to Millennium as it will be the first time each time has faced each other since last season's exciting 5A State Championship game. Also shout out to ex-Tiger Conner Helvig who was back in town to watch the Tigers. The coaching staff enjoyed seeing you and introducing you to the current Tigers. Conner was a huge staple to our success at Gilbert. Conner will be graduating from Law School in May from Marquette University.

  GILBERT VS IRONWOOD RIDGE - December 19, 2019  

 


The Tigers had their last power point game before the holiday break versus the well-coached Ironwood Ridge Nighthawks Thursday night and came away with a 64-40 victory. With this victory the Tigers sit at 9-1 in their first 10 games of the season.

To open up the game the Tigers were pretty focused and started with a 24-8 first quarter lead with senior guards Brycen Long and Paul Maldonado doing damage with a combined 17 points and 4 three pointers. Second quarter foul trouble for the Tigers slowed them down, but Paul's hot hand and 8 more points kept the Nighthawks at bay. Tigers led 35 - 17 at the break.

The third quarter started well as the Tigers scored the first 5 points, but from that point forward throughout the rest of the third quarter the coaching staff was disappointed with uninspired basketball by Gilbert. No energy, ball was sticking and no cohesiveness on the court. Credit to Coach Kimberlin and his team as they didn,t quit and went on an 11-0 run to get within a dozen points going into the final stanza.

The coaching staff finally found a combination of five guys that really played nice team basketball and were able to get the lead back to 20+. Statistically, the Tigers were led by HBU commit, Brycen Long,s 27 points and 7 rebounds, Paul Maldonado,s 19 points and 5 rebounds and Taylor Baldwin,s 5 points and 6 rebounds.

Nice to see two of the toughest ex-Tigers that wore a Gilbert jersey last night as Tyler LaGanke and Trajon Hawkins came to support the guys. We appreciate you guys. Up next for Gilbert is the McClintock Shootout on December 26-30th as the Tigers look to defend last year,s title in that tournament. The Tigers will open up with the Liberty Lions at 4:00 PM at McClintock HS on December 26th.

  GILBERT VS CENTRAL - December  17, 2019  

 


The Tigers were back at it again in The Jungle Tuesday night after a week off, taking on the Bobcats from Central HS who are led by HC Darren Bustos who has been a staple at Central for 15 seasons. The Tigers played well and came away with 60-24 victory and received a boost of energy after ex-Tiger and State Champion Doc Self came to talk the team and watch with his Assistant Graceland University Coach Ernest Shand while they're on break.

Defensively the Tigers were solid holding the Bobcats to single-digit scoring quarters in each of the 4 quarters of the game. The Tigers shot well too connecting on 7 three-pointers on the night. Leading the scoring ways for the Tigers was Brycen Long with 25 points and both Griffin Lamb and Tampa Scott scored in double figures with 10 points each. Central's bigman, Petar Lazic, who is much improved since last season, scored 10 points of his own and did a nice job controlling the defensive glass for the Bobcats.

The Tigers started sharp jumping out to a 29-5 first quarter lead. The ball movement was on point, leading to multiple open looks from three and at the rim. The second quarter was similar as the reserves entered the game for the Tigers and Gilbert headed into the locker room with a 48-9 lead.

The third quarter started well with multiple stops leading to baskets. Betty Fairfax leading scorer on the season, Daylon Jordan, did get loose a few times and converted. Daylon led the Stampede with 12 points on the night. The Tigers were led in scoring by Jaqwaun Myles, 17 points, 6 rebounds and 4 steals.

  GILBERT VS SUNNYSLOPE -  December 06, 2019  

 


Last Friday night the Tigers had their third game of the week versus a big and well-coached Sunnyslope team in the inaugural HoopHall West invitation at Chaparral HS and came away with a come-back victory in overtime by a 59-57 score.

The Tigers literally played from behind from the opening tip, down 7 after the first quarter, at halftime and still at the end of the third quarter, but finally were able to string enough stops together in the final stanza and share the ball beautifully to tie the game by a Brycen Long off-balanced layup at the buzzer.

The Tiger found themselves down right away in OT by 4 points, but another key three by Tampa and good execution on defense gave Jaqwaun Myles the opportunity for the go ahead basket, which he converted. The Tiger,s ability to hold their own on the boards and some sharp shooting by the Tigers, especially Tampa Scott,s four three pointers helped the Tigers have a chance down the stretch.

Double figure scorers for the Tigers were leading scorer Tampa Scott with 17 points, followed by Brycen Long,s 14 points, Jaqwaun Myles, 12 points and Paul Maldonado,s 10 points. Griffin Lamb held is own in the trenches versus 6, 10 Carson Basham which gave the Tigers stability. Sunnyslope was led by sophomore stud Oakland Fort with 18 points.

  GILBERT VS DESERT MOUNTAIN- December 05, 2019  

 


After a crushing loss to Highland Tuesday night the Tigers were on the road for the first time this season at Desert Mountain versus a skilled and well-coached Mark Schumaker team and came away with a convincing 66-41 victory.

The Tigers opened up the game very sharp on both ends of the court, especially offensively. The Tiger,s guard play struggled against Highland,s pressure man to man defense, but Thursday night their cuts, passing and timing was much better which allowed the Tigers to score an impressive 23 points in the first quarter.

Again a little bit of foul trouble put some starters to then bench in the second quarter and that is when Desert Mountain was able to make a run making the Tigers call a timeout with 2:32 left in the half. The Tigers after the timeout made their own run to close out the half and going into the locker room at the break up 37-23.

The third quarter was similar to the first with great ball movement resulting in high percentage shots, which the Tigers knocked down. The Tigers were led in scoring by Paul Maldonado,s 23 points and 3 steals. Also scoring in double figures for the Tigers was Brycen Long with 16 points and Tampa Scott with 13 points.

  GILBERT VS HIGHLAND - December 03, 2019  

 


The Tigers opened up power play Tuesday night at home versus their cross-town rivals of Highland and were up-ended by a score 37-36.

Simply put, the Hawks were better prepared and wanted the win more than the Tigers. All night long the Hawks defense turned the Tigers over, prevented any type of interior passing, came up with every 50/50 ball and took charge after charge after charge. Really two charges down the stretch won the game for the Hawks. The Hawks defense shut the Tigers down in the first half holding them to two single digit scoring quarters in both the first and second quarters and also causing two starters to go to the bench due to foul trouble. Hawks up 22-14 at the half.

The second half was a little better by the Tigers, but every time the Tigers executed a stop on defense, Gilbert came away with either a terrible decision on offense or a forced contested jump shot with zero offensive rebounding effort. In fact the Hawks completely dominated the glass all night led by sophomore guard Mason Knollmiller with 10 rebounds. Every time the Tigers thought about cutting into the lead the Hawks continued to come up with big shots, especially by senior guard Noah Huber who led the Hawks in scoring with 10 points, including a clutch three late in the game. With that said the Tigers executed nicely on the defensive end late in the game and had multiple opportunities to take the lead, but just weren,t very intelligent or skilled on the offensive end. Leading scorer for the Tigers on the night was junior guard Tampa Scott with 10 points.

  GILBERT VS DESERT RIDGE - November 29, 2019  

 


 Welcome to the Jungle - Game 4
The Tigers played in their own Welcome to the Jungle Championship Game for only the 2nd time and came away champions for the first time by defeating the Desert Ridge Jaguars by a score of 55 - 29.

The Tigers team defense was very good Friday night versus Desert Ridge holding them to 3 single digit scoring quarters and 29 points overall. Individually, Tampa Scott had a huge night defensively holding Desert Ridge,s leading scorer Joe Kelsey who had been averaging 18 points a game in the tournament to zero points on the night. Besides the good defense by Tampa he also chipped in with 10 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists. Also scoring double digit points for the Tigers was big man Griffin Lamb who was the leading scorer on the night with 13 points and pulling down 7 rebounds. Junior sharp shooting guard Matt Haltrop led the Jaguars with 7 points.

The Tigers did a nice job of sharing the basketball, which makes for the opposition to defend and as a result the points were spread out. In fact the Tigers had six guys score 6 or more points on the night. Congratulations to Griffin Lamb, Brycen Long and Paul Maldonado as they were selected to the All-Tournament Team and Jaqwaun Myles was selected as the MVP.

  GILBERT VS CORONA DEL SOL - November 27, 2019  

 


Welcome to the Jungle - Game 3
The Tigers, in their third game of the season, won a tough contest with the Corona del Sol Aztecs by a score of 44 - 31. The Aztecs came out knocking down shots, stealing passes and the Tigers just couldn,t get a good start to the game on the offensive end, scoring only 6 points in the opening quarter.

The Aztecs ball pressure and switching defense caused problems for the Tigers and bogged down their offense. With that said the Tigers were able to clamp down on defense in the second quarter and string a few nice possessions together to take 10 point lead into the locker room at halftime. After scoring 10 points in the first quarter, the Tigers held Corona to single digit scoring quarters each in the following quarters to close out the game. Jaqwaun Myles did a very nice job holding Purdue Northwest commit, Anthony Irvin, to 6 points overall. Paul Maldonado was the leading scorer for the Tigers with 14 points, connecting on 4 three-pointers and his hot shooting opened up room for Griffin Lamb who also scored double figures with 10 points. Again, the Tigers spread the scoring throughout the team, which will be vital as the season progresses.

The win against the Aztecs puts the Tigers into the championship game in their own tournament for only the 2nd time. The Tigers will face the Desert Ridge Jaguars on Friday night at 5:00 PM, who are led by ex-Tiger coach, HC Greg Ream.

Happy Thanksgiving!

  GILBERT VS CHANDLER - November 26, 2019  

 


Welcome to the Jungle - Game 2
The Tigers hosted the Wolves from Chandler in their second game of the Welcome to the Jungle Holiday Tournament, played well and came away with a 63 - 48 victory. The Tigers started well with a Tampa Scott three ball, followed up by HBU commit Brycen Long carving his way to three layups and then big man Griffin Lamb knocking down his own three ball. In the second quarter the Tigers found themselves in foul trouble with three of their starters going to the bench with 2 fouls, but the reserves, including Juan Cordova, Nikko Pentelute and Taylor Baldwin played well with solid minutes with the Tigers going to the locker room with a 10 point lead.

The third quarter was the difference in the game though as the Tigers went and out-scored the Wolves 25-13. Back to back to back threes by Paul Maldonado fueled the run. The Tiger guards also did a nice job finding Griffin Lamb and Taylor Baldwin inside for easy baskets. In the final stanza Chandler turned up the full court pressure and caused some issues, cutting into the lead, but lead guard Jaqwaun Myles settled down the Tigers to keep the Wolves at bay. Jaqwaun also did a very nice job on the game's leading scorer, Carson Kelly, who finished with 20 points, but made it difficult for him all night long.

The Tigers opened the 2019-20 season in the Welcome to the Jungle Holiday Tournament with a victory over Coach Isai,s Valley Vista Monsoon by a score of 60-39. The Tigers were fairly sloppy in the first half with the ball, committing 8 turnovers with inability to cleanly break through the Monsoon half court trap. The Monsoon did a good job of disrupting the flow of the game preventing the Tigers to get on a roll. A timely three pointer at the end of the first half by Tampa Scott gave the Tigers some cushion and momentum going into the locker room at the break.

The second half, the Tigers were able to string together multiple stops converting to baskets which helped the lead push to double digits. The Tigers, also did a much better moving offensively allowing Valley Vista's trap to be less effective, in fact the Monsoon eventually took the trap off. Double digit scorers and rebounders for the Tigers were Brycen Long with 25 points and 10 rebounds and Griffin Lamb with 10 points and 15 rebounds. Jaqwaun Myles though was the catalyst to the success as he led the Tigers at lead guard, defended beautifully and had his hands on numerous deflections all night leading to the offensive break.
