Elite 6A Basketball Teams

The reigning open state champions Pumas (13-4) came out on top despite the tough matchup.

After taking their worst loss of the season last week against California’s Harvard-Westlake Wolverines, Perry has put together three straight double-digit victories.

Each team is ranked inside the top 10 in the state and has the goal of bringing in this year’s open state championship. The Pumas have an opportunity to win their second straight title, while the Bears can reclaim their spot as the top basketball program in Arizona.

Next Matchups

The Bears (11-5) next face off against 4-11 Westwood Warriors in an opportunity to get back on track.

The Pumas match up against the 14-1 Grayson Rams, who are the No. 1 ranked team in Georgia. This may be Perry’s most difficult game of the year and a true test of how elite they are. They will be playing at home, giving them an advantage over the Rams.

Keep an eye on each of these teams as the playoffs approach and they attempt to make a run.
