On a night when D.J. Bustos scored 34 points, blasting through a 40-year-old state career scoring record in the process, the Taos Tigers were eager to spoil the party.
Having won just one district game to date and playing on the road at a partisan West Las Vegas gym, Taos nonetheless gave the Dons all they could handle before falling 66-61 Saturday.
Control changed hands 12 times and the score was tied another half dozen occasions before West took the lead – albeit a tenuous one – for good on a pair of Bustos free throws to make it 58-57 with 2:44 remaining.
