Taos Tiger basketball wins District 2-4A championship

Posted

The Taos Tigers upset the Española Sundevils at Española High School 86-83 Friday, Mar. 1 for the District 2-4A championship.

In what was surely among the most exciting prep basketball games of the season, the Tigers started with a  streak so hot it seemed they couldn't miss. A field goal percentage over 80 percent for their first 16 shots gave Taos a sizable lead in the first half -- as much as 19 points.

The Sundevils stayed in it and played well. Even with the tremendous noise and energy, it was a game of mutual respect among the players.

By the final seconds, the gap had narrowed to 2 points. The buzzer sounded with the Tigers still on top, sending them into the state tournament with a win.
