West Las Vegas’ boys got even with Taos on Saturday night at Gillie Lopez Gym, and they didn’t require leading scorer D.J. Bustos to do so.
The Dons (18-5 overall, 3-1 in District 2-4A) won a back-and-forth slugfest 71-66, taking control in the third quarter after trailing most of the first half.
Bustos, injured in a Thursday night comeback win at Pojoaque Valley, did not play for West. His status for this week is uncertain.
