    How important was D.J. Bustos to the West Las Vegas boys’ basketball team this past season?

    Certainly, the Dons got big performances in both leading and supporting roles across the lineup as they matched the deepest postseason run in school history.

    But make no mistake — Bustos was big.

    As the team’s leading scorer and most consistent playmaker, the sophomore wing provided leadership in more ways than one throughout the season.
