Quarterfinal action of the 4A playoffs got underway. The PrepHoopsNevada Twitter fan poll game of the night had me at Palo Verde as they took on Cheyenne. Cheyenne as always was lead by all world wing Glenn Taylor who was coming off a brilliant 43-10-7 and 5 performance in the second round. The Desert Shields continued their momentum from that game, coming out swinging en route to a 18-9 lead at the end of the first quarter. The Panthers made their run in the second, thanks to the shooting of Jason Condron who buried 3 threes in the second quarter, cutting the lead to 4 at the half. The two teams traded leads in the second half, entering the 4th quarter tied at 44. The defining play of the game came when rising sophomore Andrick Santallian buried a 3 from the top of the key, extending Cheyenne's lead to 6 with under 2 minutes to play. His bucket proved to be the dagger as Cheyenne would hold on to win by exactly that margin, escaping with a 59-53 victory.

Now on to the best
