A dream matchup between the top two Class 3A girls’ basketball teams lived up to its billing Wednesday night in Jacona.
Top-ranked Pojoaque Valley (19-0, 3-0) clung to its perch in a 53-50 thriller against visiting West Las Vegas (13-6, 1-2).
But Coach Jose Medina’s Lady Dons came closer than any team has this season to beating the Elkettes. Pojoaque had defeated every foe by 11 points or more prior to Wednesday night.
The Elkettes are defending state champions under Lanse Carter.
