If Saturday night’s marquee matchup between No. 1 Hope Christian and No. 2 West Las Vegas is any indication of things to come, this March’s state tournament should be a treat.
The Huskies prevailed 73-68 in the championship game of Hope’s three-day boys’ tourney in Albuquerque.
The two teams battled to a 17-all stalemate after one period, with Hope pulling ahead 31-28 by halftime. It was 48-42 going into the final period.
Jordan Leake led the defending champs with 24 points. Dedric Milford had 22.
