Highland Looking To Repeat
Despite already losing as many games this season as they did through the entire last season, the Hawks have still looked dominant.
The reigning 6A champions are currently ranked No. 23 in the state, dropping from where they were to start the season. They have struggled against some of the top-ranked teams such as Sunnyslope, where they lost 43-26.
It has been a collective effort this season, as three players average 11+ points per game. Two freshmen on the team are scoring double-digits in Nick Reber and Ty Crandall.
Highland will now look to keep it rolling and get a tough victory on the road against the Bulldogs.
Queen Creek Look Much Improved
The Bulldogs have already won as many games as they did last season, where they finished 11-16. The team has dominated offensively, averaging almost 60 points per game through the first 18.

While they have lost three games by 20 or more points this season, Queen Creek has responded with a victory after each of those losses.
The team now has an opportunity to showcase what they can do against one of the top teams in the 6A and state.
