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.
The boys got after it tonight and got the road region win against Globe. Loved the energy and effort all night. Our execution in the 4th quarter was on point. Great team win fellas!!!! Now let’s go get that region championship Friday night @ Florence. #ALAQCbasketball

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.
