Spread the love

The Gilbert Tigers Varsity Boys Basketball team defeated the Corona del Sol Aztecs 54-52 in Monday night’s matchup.

Aztecs Fall Just Short

The Aztecs (8-6) won the three games before this one and had immense momentum as a team.

They now take a crushing two-point loss to Gilbert, whom they have already been defeated by this season while participating in the Jungle Holiday Tournament in November. They will face them a third time on Jan. 18.

Corona have looked significantly better than they did last season, regardless of this loss. The team ended last season with a 9-17 record, missing both the 6A and state playoffs.

The Aztecs will next match up against the 15-4 Rancho Solana Prep Mustangs on Wednesday, Jan. 10 @ 6 p.m. MST.

 

Tigers Turn It Around

After starting the season rolling with a 6-0 record, the Tigers (9-6) began to struggle as they lost six of their next eight games.

Coming off a three-game losing streak, the team was able to put it together and get a close road victory against Corona del Sol on Monday.

Gilbert has shown that it can compete at a high level in the 6A and state but will look to do that consistently as the playoffs approach.

Their next challenge will come against the 8-8 Brophy College Prep Broncos, who have lost their last three games.
