Through six winless District 2-4A games this past regular season, Robertson’s boys’ basketball team was snakebit, losing by margins as large as 20 or as small as a single point (twice).
But the young Cardinals never quite gave up on themselves.
On Monday night, the attitude and effort paid off.
Visiting No. 5 ranked Pojoaque Valley in the first game of the district tournament, the Cardinals pulled off a 69-64 upset in a wild double-overtime carnival ride of a contest.
