The #10 rated Desert Ridge Jaguars Varsity Boys Basketball took care of business last Friday night defeating a fiesty #23 rated Horizon team 79 to 74 in the opening round of the state playoffs. The Jaguars lead the entire game, but each time their lead got to the point where it looked the game was secure, the Huskies would fight back and get in it. Clutch free throws down the stretch sealed the win for the Jaguars.
With the win, Desert Ridge advances to the “Sweet 16” of the 6A State Tournament and will face #7 rated Gilbert High School at their place on Wednesday. Tip off is at 6:30.
Desert Ridge Athletics encourages everyone to get to the game if they can…. The games between the two programs this year have developed into a good rivalry….the first two games were close, and so this should be a good game. It would be great for our team to have a lot of support!!!
This is an AIA State Playoff game and they set ticket prices at $5.00 for students, and $10 for adults.
