  • Dons nip Santa Rosa

    Joe Ortiz turned in another big night, and Ruben Bustamante and Lucas Rodriguez shined in the backcourt for West Las Vegas in Thursday’s 60-53 victory over visiting Santa Rosa.

    Though the Lions held their own with pure hustle, Ortiz’s versatile inside-outside game tipped the advantage to West Las Vegas. Ortiz finished with 17 points; Bustamante had the hot hand with 18, and Rodriguez played well, chipping in nine.

    Josh Tenorio (13) and Marcus Lopez (12) led Santa Rosa, which brought a good crowd.
