    Las Vegas Optic

    Could this be the year Robertson and West Las Vegas meet for the coveted Stu Clark Tournament championship?
    Don’t be too surprised if it happens, because both teams are off to a strong start. But there are some solid teams — including defending champ St. Pius X — that could prevent that dream final from taking place.

  • A look at the tournament teams

    A look at the eight teams vying for the 62nd annual Stu Clark Tournament championship:

    BERNALILLO: With the exception of hometown teams Robertson and West Las Vegas, no other school has as much experience playing in the Stu Clark as Bernalillo. Moreover, the Spartans have already played a couple fellow teams in this year’s field, winning twice against Miyamura and losing one to Class 5A contender St. Pius X. With eight seniors and one junior leading a savvy, sharp-shooting lineup, Terry Darnell has his Spartans off to a 3-4 start.

  • Stu Clark tourney coming on...

    One of the Meadow City’s most beloved holiday traditions — the Stu Clark Tournament — will get under way on Monday at the Wilson Complex.

    This is the 62nd year for the tourney, which draws six boys’ basketball teams from across the state as well as local favorites Robertson and West Las Vegas.

    The tournament tips off at 1 p.m. Monday when Bernalillo plays West Mesa. Game two pits Silver against St. Pius X at 2:30 p.m.

  • Six bowls on Saturday

    The Associated Press

    Previews of Saturday’s six college bowl games:

    ST. PETERSBURG BOWL: Marshall and Connecticut are going to St. Petersburg.

    Marshall (9-3) is looking for its third bowl win in as many seasons, and brings coach Doc Holliday back to Florida — a place where he’s recruited well. The Herd won the Boca Raton Bowl last year.

  • Triple-double
  • Cats give West a scare

    Except for sinking shots early on, West Las Vegas’ Miguel Sena did a little of everything Tuesday evening against visiting Lovington.

    He snatched rebounds, made steals, drew Wildcat defenders to himself, then found open teammates.
    Eventually, the shots started to fall, too.

    The biggest came with one minute left in the game. With the Dons trailing 62-60, Sena slashed to the hoop and drew a foul. The basket rolled in, and then Sena made the ensuing free throw to put West back on top 63-62.
