3.  The No. 18-ranked Florence girls’ basketball team improved to 18 – 7 with a 58 – 39 victory over rival and visiting Coolidge.

 

2.  The ALA boys’ basketball team moved closer to the 3A Central Region title following its 76 – 59 victory at Globe. Devon Brooke led the Patriots in scoring with 16 points, Dyson Lighthall, a 6-foot-6 sophomore finished with a double-double – 10 points, 14 rebounds – to go along with three blocks, and Bujon Boyd had a team-high six assists.

 

 

1.  No. 10-ranked Florence erased a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat No. 19 Coolidge, 61 – 60. The Gophers swept the Bears in the season series. The Bears, who are on the playoff bubble, now have five region losses by five pts or less, including a pair of one-point losses and a three-point loss, which was 1-of-2 defeats in OT. The other was 82 – 77 loss vs. Gophers on Jan. 19. The five losses are by a combined 15 points. If the Bears miss out on the postseason they won’t have to look far to find the reason.
