Girls Class 4A: Grants’ offense comes up big in win over Artesia
All of the top four seeds in the Class 4A girls basketball state tournament made it through to Thursday’s semifinal round.
Top-seeded Grants dropped in a whopping 81 points as it knocked off eighth-seeded Artesia Tuesday afternoon at The Pit. Grants, which defeated Los Alamos in last weekend’s opening round, has a tall order in Thursday’s semifinal, however, when it takes on 18-time state champ Kirtland Central.
The Grants-Kirtland Central contest is set for 1:15 p.m. in The Pit. The other semifinal matches No. 2 seed Roswell against No. 3 seed Piedra Vista. That game is set for 9:45 a.m.
Kirtland Central dropped Miyamura 60-50 Tuesday to advance. Miyamura is the only team to have pulled off an upset in the 4A bracket so far, when it bounced fifth-seeded Española Valley Friday night.
Roswell survived a scare from seventh-seeded Valencia, picking up a 51-50 win to advance. Piedra Vista topped defending 4A champ Gallup 49-42.
The 4A title game is scheduled for Friday at The Pit.
