Saturday at the CHSAA State Basketball Tournament

Boys Basketball

While Berthoud may be out of the action, the Northern Conference is well represented with three teams in the Great 8.

In the Bill Weimer Region, #1 Sierra defeated #4 Northridge 88-63 while #3 Thomas Jefferson won in a mild upset over #2 Glenwood Springs.

Sterling, the #1 seed, advanced as expected in the Jim Baggot Region, but it was not easy. The game went to two overtime periods before the Tigers managed a 65-61 victory over #4 Centaurus. Meanwhile, #2 Lewis-Palmer had a relatively easy time with Pueblo South who had advanced from #6.

No Surprises in the Ron Shavlik Regions as #1 Longmont put an end to Montrose’s run. The Indians had defeated #4 Prairie View but lost 73-59. Pueblo Central continued to dominate its bracket, besting Cheyenne Mountain 60-37.

Number 1 Pueblo East made short work of #4 Widefield with a 58-35 drubbing. In the other game in the Guy Gibbs region, the Windsor Wizards must have some magic as they downed #3 Broomfield 76-62. The Wizards started as the #7 seed in the bracket, have advanced to the semi-finals, and seem to be improving as they climb the ladder. They are still a long shot, but stranger things have happened.

No surprises in the Tanya Haave Region as #1 Broomfield and #2 Pueblo East will meet in the semifinal. The surprising Castle View team, which started as the #10 seed, was no match for the Eagles.

The Tracy Hill Region will feature #1 Pueblo South against #2 Conifer.

In the Lou Piel Region, the Longmont Trojans had a tough time with Centaurus, finally winning 44-41 in overtime. In the other contest, the #3 Cheyenne Mountain Indians defeated #2 Rifle.

Both top seeds in the Brenda House Region, Mesa Ridge and Mullen, advanced and will meet at the School of Mines next Saturday.
