Guess who’s No. 1 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference West men’s basketball race?
Under coach Joe Harge, the Cowboys are 15-5 overall and 9-3 in the RMAC, rivaling the better starts the team made two decades ago under then-coach Henry Sanchez.
The latest triumph came Tuesday night, a 90-67 rout of Colorado State-Pueblo (9-11, 6-6).
A 23-3 Cowboy run midway through the first half turned a one-point deficit into a 39-20 lead. Highlands held on to that lead, which reached a 20-point margin — 53-33 — by halftime.
