San Manuel Miner

The San Manuel girls’ basketball team won all three games it played last week and has won 8 of its last 9 games. They defeated Baboquivari, Superior and Arizona College Prep last week. The Miners’ only loss during the nine-game span came against St. Gregory College Preparatory.

The Miners are seeded second in Section 6, behind St. Gregory, according to the most current rankings at AIA365.com. The Miners are seeded ninth overall in Division IV.

The Miners recorded 21 steals in the 50 – 18 victory over Baboquivari on January 14, 2014. Angelica Zuniga had another double-double in the lopsided victory. Zuniga, the third-leading scorer in Division IV, finished with a game-high 18 points and 12 rebounds. She also had 6 of the team’s 21 steals in the game. Senior Analisa Robles also scored in double figures with 12 points. Eight Miners’ players each recorded at least one steal in the victory.

The Miners were 17 – 5 before a game on January 21 versus Mesa Prep. They have five games remaining on their schedule before the playoffs begin, including their last two home game against Chandler Prep (Jan. 24) and Ray (Jan. 28). They finish their season with three consecutive road games at San Carlos (Jan. 30), Immaculate Heart (Feb. 4), and Green Fields Country Day (Feb. 6). All games, except San Carlos, tipoff at 5:30 p.m.

The game at San Carlos on January 30 will matchup two of the top teams in its respective divisions. San Carlos is currently 22 – 1 on the season and seeded second in Division III. The game will tipoff at 7:00 p.m.
