It’s nice to be playing at home for the first round of the state basketball tournaments, as will be the case for West Las Vegas’ boys and girls, Robertson’s girls and Mora’s girls this weekend.
But the ultimate goal is to be miles away in the depths of the world-famous Pit by the time the finals play out March 14-15.
West Las Vegas Lady Dons are the No. 5 seed in Class 3A girls’ hoops. West (19-8) will host No. 12 Thoreau (17-9) at 7 p.m. Friday at Gillie Lopez Gym. The teams have not met this season.
