Notes: Hagerman hit seven 3-pointers in the second half to keep the game interesting, but Bailey scored on a give-and-go with Jose Posada and Brett Anderson converted a three-point play with just under two minutes to go to seal the win. ... The Wolverines held Bejarano to half his season average. ... Texico coach Richard Luscombe said Texico handled Hagerman’s fullcourt pressure well early, which allowed the Wolverines to grab a 17-point halftime lead. “Mario Posada did a great job of handling the ball,” Luscombe said. … Walthers scored 15 of his game-high total in the first half, including several baskets after Texico had beaten the press. … A committee will seed Class 1A and Class 2A today. Luscombe thinks the Wolverines will get one of the top four seeds in the eight-team field.

Notes: The Longhorns led only once at 3-2 in the first minute on a 3-pointer by Smith. The Foxes took the lead for good on the next trip on a 3-pointer by Pettigrew. … With the Longhorns relying on 3-pointers, Fort Sumner held a big advantage from the free throw line — 25-for-34 to Logan’s 4-of-5. … Logan got within a point late in the half, but Fort Sumner outscored the Longhorns 12-4 in the final four minutes for a nine-point lead. Then, with the score 47-40, the Foxes went on a 9-0 run fueled by seven points from Stinnett, and the margin was never under double figures after that. … “I felt like we kind of wore them down,” Fort Sumner coach John Wootton said. “I think they got a little tired (in the second half), and we started getting some turnovers.”
