West Las Vegas salvaged seventh place in the Sundevil Invitational, beating Robertson 63-54 Saturday morning in Albuquerque.

The Dons (4-3) controlled much of the game, leading 12-6 after one quarter and 28-21 at halftime. It was 45-32 at the end of the third before the Cardinals (0-4) made headway late in the contest.

It was the first East-West boys' basketball game since the teams met in the Class 4A state quarterfinals in March.

Barring an encounter in another tournament bracket -- the Stu Clark is Dec. 28-30 -- the crosstown rivals are next scheduled to meet Jan. 19 at Gillie Lopez Gym.
