Cardinal hoopsters pick up first win

T.J. Trujillo made the game-tying free throw with 1:23 left, then completed an old-fashioned three-point play to regain control for good, and Robertson edged Valencia 49-47 for its first boys' basketball win of the season.

The win came in Tuesday night's Cardinals home opener at Mike Marr Gym.

Coach Manuel Romero's team is 1-4 as it readies for a tough road game Thursday at Capital.


Also Tuesday, West Las Vegas' girls fell short in their upset bid at top-rated Portales, 62-42.
