Prep hoops Thursday, the latest: West Mesa girls, Santa Fe boys get epic wins

West Mesa coaches and players react to their dramatic victory over nemesis Piedra Vista Thursday in the Class 5A girls semifinals at Dreamstyle Arena — the Pit. West Mesa had lost the first three games between the teams. (Adolphe Pierre-Louis/Journal)

The action is underway today with 16 more games, eight each at Dreamstyle Arena — the Pit and Santa Ana Star Center. The Journal is staffing and will be updating regularly throughout the day.

Carlsbad went the final four minutes without a point, and lost.West Mesa went the final 5½ minutes of regulation without a point — and survived.

With that in mind, the Class 5A girls state basketball championship game may have trouble equaling the dramatics of Thursday’s memorable semifinals.

Saturday’s 2 p.m. final will yield a first-time champion (West Mesa) or a defending champion (Hobbs) after the Eagles and Mustangs won thrilling semifinal games at Dreamstyle Arena — the Pit.

It will be a rematch of a game Dec. 15 at Ralph Tasker Arena, when West Mesa won 55-54 in overtime on Emily Burk’s 25-foot buzzer-beater.

No. 3 WEST MESA 59, No. 2 PIEDRA VISTA 57 (OT): The Mustangs (27-3) lost the first three meetings to the Panthers this season, but got the one that mattered most as senior guard Esperanza Varoz buried two free throws with 5.0 seconds left in OT for the game-winners.

“I’m still in shock,” Varoz said about 15 minutes after the game. “I’m shaking. That’s how nervous I was.”

The Panthers (26-4) had a final shot to win it, but Elaina Watson’s 3-point runner hit off the backboard and the front of the rim.

“I thought it was in,” Piedra Vista coach Joe Reed said.

West Mesa advanced despite going the final 5:26 of regulation without a point. Piedra Vista came from seven down, 50-43, during that span.

“Give Piedra Vista credit,” West Mesa coach Manny Otero said. “They were all over us, and they were making it difficult.”

With a fantastic 8-of-10 showing from beyond the arc in the first half — Cece Barela had five of those treys — West Mesa opened a 33-23 lead. The Panthers shot it well from long distance, too, knocking down enough 3s to keep them close, 39-31, by halftime.

The Panthers turned West Mesa over 11 times in the second half as Piedra Vista steadily closed the gap. Still, after Maiah Rivas hit a straightaway 3 for the Mustangs, they led 50-43 and were in control.

Until they weren’t. Eventually, a free throw by Tiontai Woods with 26.5 seconds left (she made only 1 out of 2) tied the game at 50 for Piedra Vista.

Rivas led the Mustangs with 21 points and seven rebounds. Barela added 19 points.

“They were locating Barela before we could get set,” Reed said. “She was lights out.”

Freshman guard Lanae Billy had 15 points and nine boards for Piedra Vista.

No. 1 HOBBS 42, No. 4 CARLSBAD 41:  Mariah Jennings’ 2-footer off the glass with 3.5 seconds remaining capped a dramatic comeback in the fourth quarter for the Eagles (29-2), who scored the game’s last eight points over the final four minutes to stun the Cavegirls (26-6).

“We thought this might be the end,” Hobbs coach Joe Carpenter said.

The Eagles were certainly teetering on the brink, as Carlsbad had the ball with 12 seconds to go, and was inbounding after a Hobbs turnover.

But coming out of the timeout, Hobbs’ Ayanna Smith, the tallest player on the floor, went up and intercepted the inbounds pass intended for Carsyn Boswell.

“I saw her break, and I just went with her,” Smith said. The pass, Carlsbad coach John Lee Zumbrun, was late.

“It was wide open,” Zumbrun said. “She (the inbounder) just threw it two seconds late.”

After the steal, the Eagles eventually located an open Jennings along the baseline. Her shot was uncontested. Without a timeout, Carlsbad was unable to get a decent shot off before the buzzer.

Carlsbad had seized a 41-34 lead with a trio of 3-pointers, including a pair of open looks from Tori Flores, earlier in the quarter.

But the Cavegirls went the final 4:02 without a point, committing six turnovers down the stretch.

“We stopped looking to score,” Zumbrun said. “I’m not sure why. We got the lead and we tightened up.”

Amiah Smith had 19 points to lead Hobbs. Ayanna Smith added 14 points and 10 rebounds. Those two, and Jennings, were three of the mainstays who returned after Hobbs beat Cibola in last year’s 6A final.

The Idaho State-bound Boswell finished with 16 points and four assists in the final game of her career at Carlsbad.

No. 6 ATRISCO HERITAGE 62, No. 7 CLEVELAND 59 (OT): Junior guard Joziah Ramos forced the overtime for the Jaguars (21-7) with a high-degree-of-difficulty, 8-foot jumper with 4.6 seconds to go in regulation.Ramos also nailed three free throws in the OT, the last of his game-best 28 points.

“Pretty good player,” deadpanned Atrisco Heritage coach Adrian Ortega. “I’m glad he’s on my team.”

This was Atrisco Heritage’s second overtime victory this season against Cleveland (26-7). Ramos was the reason the Jaguars won that night, too.

There was never more than six points separating the District 1 rivals on Thursday.

At the end of the fourth quarter, even after Ramos’ off-balance jumper squared things at 55-all, Aamer Muhammad of the Storm had a great look at a potential game-winning 3 that rimmed out at the buzzer.

Atrisco Heritage, which beat Las Cruces in double OT in the state semis last year, scored the first five points of this extra session. And Isaiah Brooks was driving for the clinching layup, when Muhammad blocked the shot off the backboard.

Seconds later at the other end, Jalen Munn buried a 3-pointer and was fouled. He completed the rare four-point play and Cleveland, which was close to being finished, trailed 60-59 instead.

Ramos buried two free throws with 24.2 seconds to go for the final margin, but not the final drama.

Brooks was dribbling out the clock when he began walking around with the ball in his hands before the buzzer sounded. He was whistled for traveling. Officials put 0.6 on the clock.

Tre Watson of the Storm chucked a long pass to the opposite side of the floor and into the hands of teammate Joshua Tarry, who got off a 3-point attempt at the buzzer that hit the front of the rim.

The game featured seven ties and seven lead changes. Muhammad had 21 points to pace Cleveland.

CLASS 4A GIRLS (click here for bracket)

It is chalk and chalk in a big way for today’s Class 4A girls high school state basketball tournament at Dreamstyle Arena—the Pit.

The top two seeded not only advanced Thursday, they did so handily and then some as defending state champion Los Lunas, which will be playing in a third straight final\, will meet one of the state’s blueblood programs in Kirtland Central, which is seeking its 20th title and first since 2012.

No. 1 KIRTLAND CENTRAL 55, No. 13 ESPAÑOLA VALLEY 23: Tatelyn Manheimer spearheaded a lethal outside game with 15 points and five 3-pointers and the Broncos (27-3) unleashed a smothering press to stymie the underdog Sundevils (17-12) .

“We gave them trouble with our pressure in the full court, but again, we’re just doing what we want to — then we’ll adjust when we have to,” said Kirtland coach Devon Manning. “The strength of our team is our depth. We go nine strong. We don’t get tired. I don’t let the girls go long enough to get tired.”

The Broncos forced 22 turnovers, including 12 steals, and harried the Sundevils on virtually every possession.

“They had good pressure,” said Española guard Kaylee Chavez. “I felt like their pressure was there and along with the energy in the stands, that was a big factor also.”

Kirtland quickly displayed its outside proclivity, knocking down five 3-pointers in the first quarter.

“We knew we had to shoot well,” Sundevils coach Joe Estrada said. “We knew they would shoot well. It just wasn’t there for us. After those first few 3s, I thought we played pretty good defense and we took that away from them for a little while. But that team, you’re not going to keep that shot away from them the whole game. They’re awfully good.”

Although no other Broncos reached double figures, 10 total players had at least three points.

Taking greater advantage of that depth would have made Manning a bit happier.

“I thought we were shooting those 3s because we weren’t looking to go inside too much,” he said. “I thought we shot too much. We settled for 3s when we had lanes to get it inside. But I’m not going to complain when we’re making 3s. I just don’t want it to be the focal point of our offense. We have to move the ball. I thought we did a lot better job of moving the ball in the second half than we did in the first half.”

No. 2 LOS LUNAS 70, No. 3 GALLUP 47: Perhaps the Bengals put a bit too much stock in what they saw from Tuesday’s quarterfinals, when Natalie Jojola was a non-factor when it came to scoring.

Or perhaps Jojola just decided it was time elevate her game.

Either way, she was too much for Gallup (23-9), scoring 28 points with four 3-pointers.

“It stars from warm-ups,” Jojola said. “You have to get your mind focused and ready for the rest of the game. Once you hit the first layup or free throw or 3-pointer, you know you’re going to be there the next time.”

Her first bucket was actually a reverse layup over her head that somehow fell in the first quarter. It was the second quarter, however, when she really began her mischief.

She closed the half with consecutive 3-pointers as part of an 11-3 run that turned a 24-22 deficit into a 33-27 lead at the break.

“I thought at halftime we were in a good position,” Gallup coach Todd McBroom said. “You just want to be in striking range. They’re the ones that are supposed to win, so we wanted to be in striking range.

Jojola then struck again on another 3-pointer to start the third quarter, and later in the period, it was her 3-point play that sparked a 14-1 run and pushed the Tigers’ lead to 52-31.

Los Lunas coach Marty Zeller credited his seniors Marissa Weldon, Jaci Aragon and Jaidyn Schollander with a defensive effort that caused 28 turnovers, including 18 steals.

“Besides the 3-pointers, it was the defense and Natalie being in the right place at the right time,” he said. “She was the recipient of the deflections and the steals. She was the one scoring but it was really a lot of deflections and on-ball pressure.”

CLASS 4A BOYS (click here for bracket)

Mediocre has transformed to magical in a hurry for the Valley Vikings.Class 4A’s seventh-seeded Vikings, who lugged a 13-13 record into state-tournament play, pulled off their second upset in as many days Thursday. Valley hit 10 3 -pointers and earned a spot in Saturday’s championship game with a nail-biting 53-50 victory over third-seeded Silver in Dreamstyle Arena.

It came less than 24 hours after the Vikings knocked off No. 2 seed Hope Christian. Not bad for a team that suffered an 89-42 home loss to Volcano Vista early in the season.

“It’s pretty much a brand-new group except for Derick (Chavez),” Valley coach Joe Coleman said. “It’s been ugly at times but these guys have worked really hard to get here. We just find ways to win.”

Valley will face No. 1 Los Lunas  at 4 p.m. Saturday in Dreamstyle Arena.

No. 7 VALLEY 53, No. 3 SILVER 50: Patient offense and red-hot perimeter shooting proved a winning formula for the Vikings (16-13) as they built a double-digit lead and then held-off the hard-charging Colts (24-5).

Chavez scored 19 points and hit four of Valley’s 10 3 pointers to help his team earn a spot in the final. The Vikings went 10-for-19 from 3-point range, led by as many as 16 points in the third quarter and were up 41-27 early in the fourth. Freshman Mateo Hernandez hit all three of his shots, all 3’s, including buzzer-beaters in the first and third quarters.

“I knew I had to get those shots up quick,” Hernandez said. “I’m glad I had the opportunity to help my team.”

Valley’s hot shooting was barely enough. Silver amped up its trapping defensive pressure over the final 14 minutes and nearly pulled off an epic comeback. Tristin Moore, who scored a team-high 15 points, swished a long 3 with 23 seconds left to get the Colts within two at 52-50.

Silver forced a turnover with 9.6 seconds remaining and appeared set to tie when Steven Cross got open under the basket on an inbounds play. But Valley’s Jevon Baker scrambled back to block Cross’s shot, and Moore missed a leaning 3-pointer at the buzzer.

“Valley’s physicality bothered us early,” Silver coach Brandon Siqueiros said. “We need to play with tempo and get in transition. Valley got us in an Albuquerque slugfest and that’s their game not ours.”

No. 1 LOS LUNAS 77, No. 12 DEL NORTE 60: At Dreamstyle Arena, Zanen Zeller and the Tigers (27-3) put on an offensive clinic and the Cinderella Knights (16-14) simply ran out of magic.

Zeller finished one assist short of a triple-double, racking up 24 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists to help Los Lunas overwhelm Del Norte’s pressing defense. The Tigers shot 67 percent from the field in the game and hit a ridiculous 16 of 18 shots (89 percent) in the second half.

Asked about narrowly missing the triple-double, Zeller smiled.

“If I win it’s nice to get,” he said, “but winning comes first.”

The Tigers, who will be appearing in their first state final since losing to Roswell in 2014, effectively locked up Thursday’s win in the second and third quarters. Del Norte led 18-14 after one quarter and stretched it to 20-14 on Johnathen Wilkens’ layup early in the second.

But Los Lunas answered with a 10-0 run and steadily built its lead from there. Zeller’s contested 3-pointer to beat the horn gave the Tigers a 36-28 advantage at halftime, and they almost never missed from that point on.

“You never expect to go 16 of 18 in a half,” Los Lunas coach Travis Julian said, “but you’ll take it any time you can get it.”

CLASS 3A GIRLS (click here for bracket)

RIO RANCHO — Late in a tight NMAA girls Class A semifinal basketball game, Robertson High and Navajo Prep battled for precious momentum.

Gabriela Trujillo delivered a key 3-pointer that swung “good ole mo” back to the top-seeded Cardinals, who held off the No. 5-seeded Eagles 57-49 at Santa Ana Star Center on Thursday morning.

Robertson (28-2) advances to Friday’s championship game at 3 p.m. at Dreamstyle Arena against Santa Fe Indian School.

Trujillo’s 3 sparked a 10-2 run over the final 3:05 in a game the Cardinals needed help from everyone. Seniors Alianza Darley (10 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, three steals, two blocks) and Jazmyne Jenkins (13 points, eight rebounds) endured foul trouble.

Robertson junior Tessa Ortiz stepped up with a game-high 17 points and hit 9 of 12 free throws. The Cardinals hit 11 of 15 free throws in the final quarter.

“We didn’t want to go home,” Ortiz said. “We fought really hard to get here. We’re just trying to have confidence in all of us and our teammates because we’re going to win together.”

Darley, 5-foot-11 and bound for UTEP to play volleyball, sat the equivalent of a quarter as she picked up her fourth foul with 4:25 left in the third period and did not go back in until there was 4:30 remaining in the game.

The Eagles (21-10) grabbed their first lead, 45-44, with 3:42 left on sophomore Cienna Harrison’s layup.

Jenkins, who sat the first three minutes of the fourth quarter, then converted a 3-point play after she was fouled. Navajo Prep answered right back with sophomore Aiona Johnson, who scored two of her team-high 14 points in the paint to tie it at 47-47.

Then, Trujillo, who finished with four points, responded with the 3-pointer that Navajo Prep coach Rainy Crisp said deflated her team.

“I just get mad at myself because I know not to reach,” Darley said. “I guess it’s a bad habit. But I trust my teammates. I trust that Tessa is going to pick up our team. I trust that ‘Jaz’ is going to pick it up. I don’t get scared when I’m not in there because I have so much trust in my teammates.”

Harley blocked a shot and drained 3 of 4 free throws after returning in the fourth quarter. Robertson coach Jose Medina made sure his star senior was ready to re-enter.

“I can’t use all the words but the main message was: ‘Do you want this to be the last game of your high school career?'” he said. “There were some adjectives in there. She said no, and she went in there and did what she had to do.”

CLASS 2A GIRLS (click here for bracket)

No. 8 MESCALERO APACHE 46, No. 4 DULCE 40: This year’s giant-killer of New Mexico high school basketball, at least through Thursday afternoon, was the Mescalero Apache girls.

The Chiefs came to town seeded eighth in Class 2A, but they will play in Friday’s 5 p.m. championship game at Dreamstyle Arena — the Pit.

Early Thursday at the Santa Ana Star Center, the Chiefs rode the game-high 28-point, nine-rebound performance of junior Fallon Velasquez to knock off fourth-seeded Dulce 46-40 in semifinal play.

Brooke Vigil scored 18 points for Dulce (23-7), which had hit three 3-pointers and led after one quarter, 17-7. But the Hawks went cold in the middle two stanzas, going just 3-of-15, and the Chiefs took control.

And when Dulce tried to make a move in the fourth quarter, Mescalero Apache kept the Hawks at arm’s distance with a 5-of-6 performance from the free-throw line.

Add this fun fact from the semifinal: Alyn Kazhe-Kirgan, who was scoreless in 11 minutes, 40 seconds of action, had a plus-minus figure of plus-19, by far the best of anyone in the game. She had two rebounds and three assists during her playing time.

Next up in Friday’s final is the third-seeded Pecos.

The Chiefs entered state tournament play on a downswing, losing in district to Lordsburg 69-55. But since then, they’ve dispatched ninth-seeded Magdalena 55-43, busted the bracket with a 47-46 upset of No. 1 Texico, and then Thursday’s victory.

CLASS 1A GIRLS (click here for bracket)

RIO RANCHO — With Elida having vacated its throne in state small-school girls basketball, Melrose and Tatum are hoping to be next in line.

In particular, top-seeded Melrose has made a statement to that effect. Its 32-point win in Thursday’s Class 1A semifinals over Cliff at the Santa Ana Star Center was its closest game yet in this year’s state tournament.

Second-seeded Tatum also advanced with an easy win over Logan. Saturday’s final is 10 a.m. at Dreamstyle Arena — the Pit.

No. 1 MELROSE 65, No. 5 CLIFF 33: Nataley Mondragon had 24 points and 10 rebounds for the Buffaloes (24-6), who spurted out to a 20-4 first-quarter lead and coasted. Melrose hit eight 3-pointers and built a 36-point lead late in the third quarter of a game that lots of players on both teams saw action.

Kimberly Gutierrez scored 12 points to lead Cliff (22-8), but the Cowgirls were just 13-of-55 (23.6 percent) from the field.

Elida has won every small school title from 2011-18 but didn’t make the field this year. Meanwhile, Melrose gets frequent finals mileage. Melrose lost the last two 1A finals to Elida, but won 2A titles in 2015 and 2016.

CLASS 1A BOYS (click here for bracket)

RIO RANCHO — Melrose is one win away from its third state basketball championship in four seasons.

The fifth-seeded Buffaloes (24-7) got double-doubles from Tate Sorgen (16 points, 13 rebounds) and Devon Bailey (12 points, 10 boards) in their 58-45 Class 1A boys semifinal victory on Thursday over top-seeded Quemado at the Santa Ana Star Center.

The lone team in the way of a Buffalo stampede is Fort Sumer, the second-seeded team, which managed to grind out a 47-37 victory over Maxwell in the other semifinal.

The championship game is at 6 p.m. Saturday at Dreamstyle Arena — the Pit.

No. 5 MELROSE 58, No. 1 QUEMADO 45: The Buffaloes broke up a close game with 11 consecutive points in the fourth quarter, and they held Quemado to 26 percent (18 of 70) from the field.

Dylan Valentine added 13 points for Melrose. Adrian Lackey scored 23 on 10-of-29 shooting for Quemado.

It was a disappointing finish for the Eagles (28-2), who heaved up 42 3-pointers and connected on only eight. Their lone other loss was 56-52 to Magdalena on Jan. 8. Among Quemado’s 28 wins this season were two over Melrose, both in tournament action.
