On Tuesday night I attended the 4A Final-4 game of St. Mary's at Peoria. 

Peoria was the 1 seed and St. Mary's was the 4. St. Mary's actually had the tougher regular season schedule but had 1 loss to Desert Vista. 

Right from the tip, the Panthers took control of the game at 10-2 and proceeded to go to 20-6 after one quarter. 

At the half it was 42-24 and it ballooned to 30 points at one point in the second half. 

The Panthers hit 14 3's in the game. I don't care who you play, you will not lose too many games shooting that well.

 

Despite the loss, St. Mary's has a stable of studs who are young. They may be the odds on favorite for next HS season and have a very good coach with Damin Lopez.  

 

Peoria takes on a veteran team Saturday afternoon vs Salpointe Catholic for the 4A State Championship.  

A great battle of guards that may end up being how well Kogbara can produce, being the only starter with size. The Lancers have the experience but you can't count out the Panthers. 

 

Final score was 85-59 Peoria.
