The Desert Ridge Jaguars basketball team closed regular season play with a 49 to 44 win over region rival Highland on Tuesday night. The victory moved the Jaguars up from the number 11 seed in the 6A Conference Rankings, to the number 10 seed.
The State Playoffs start Friday, and your #10 seeded Jaguars will play host in the opening round of the playoffs to #23 Horizon High School…tip off is at 6:30 pm. The Huskies like to play an up tempo style of basketball, and it is not uncommon for their scores to be in the 90’s and they have topped 100 points six different times.
The top 8 seeds in the tournament receive a 1st round bye. The Jaguars will likely face the #6 or #7 seed if they win on Friday….. their next game would be Wednesday, February 15, on the road at the higher seeds gym.
The student section was as big as ever this past Tuesday night… Let’s make it even bigger and better Friday night in the first round of the playoffs! Let’s show our Jaguar pride and support our team! Go Jags!
