  • Stu Clark Day Two: Dons back in...

    West Las Vegas head coach David Bustos is well familiar with the feeling of playing in the Stu Clark Tournament championship.
    He’s been there enough.
    Bustos — who’s led teams to three Stu titles and two runner-up finishes — and his Dons (9-2) earned a spot in the 2016 final with a hard-fought victory over Class 5A St. Pius  in Thursday’s semifinals at the Wilson Complex.

  • Emphatic opening - Cards, Dons...

    West Las Vegas and Robertson will stay in prime time this Stu Clark Tournament, thank you very much.

    Both local boys’ hoops teams earned lopsided wins Wednesday to begin the 63rd edition of the tourney at the Wilson Complex.

    The Cardinals never trailed in routing Cobre 68-36 in the first evening game. Then, the Dons used a 21-9 surge in the opening period to take control en route to a 87-51 romp against Bernalillo in the nightcap of day one.

  • Mora, Pecos prevail to tip off...

    Playing on their home court for the Tri-Cities Tournament, Pecos dominated every quarter to win handily over Maxwell, 84-50, on Wednesday at Sanchez Gym.

    Carlos Cordova scored a game-high 21 points and Panther teammate Mario Archuleta had 19 as Pecos won its seventh consecutive game.

    Joshua DeHerrera added 11 for the Panthers (7-1), who were to play East-Mountain-McCurdy in the semifinals.

    Kolten Riggs had 14 and Aaron Salazar 13 for Maxwell, which lost for the first time in nine games.

  • Homecoming 63 - Stu Clark...

    The last three teams to win the Stu Clark Tournament are back for more as the fabled holiday event, which turns 63 this winter, tips off Wednesday at Highlands’ Wilson Complex.

    Passes are $12 each and will be available at the door. The tournament runs through Friday.

    Four Stu Clark participants from last year — hometown teams Robertson and West Las Vegas plus mainstays Bernalillo and St. Pius X — are joined by Atrisco Heritage, Cobre, Moriarty and Sandia Prep for the three-day boys’ basketball tourney.

  • Pecos hosting Tri-Cities

    After meeting in the championship games of the major regular-season tournaments in 2015-16, the Mora Rangers and Pecos Panthers could be headed to another trophy showdown in this year’s Tri-Cities Tournament.

    Pecos is hosting the Tri this time, with action beginning Wednesday at Sanchez Gym.

    As fate would have it, Mora (6-3) and Pecos (6-1) are on opposite halves of the bracket, meaning they could meet in Friday’s title game.
