Three players scored in double digits for Navajo Prep as the Eagles advanced to the semifinals of their eight team tournament.
The Eagles (1-1) defeated Aztec’s junior varsity team 52-41 behind Isaiah Yazzie’s 14 points. Mike Mauga had another 13 while Tyler Sorensen scored 12.
“It felt good to get our confidence back up after our first loss to Piedra Vista. It showed the team we can do the job,” said Navajo Prep head coach Dustin Moore. “We are still getting into our defensive groove, but we threw a trap at them and our boys did pretty good getting turnovers and turning them into points.”
Navajo Prep will play again at home tonight at 7 p.m.
