Eighteen-straight wins and the Sweet 16.

That's where the Greeley Central girls basketball team finds itself after a 62-43 win over Roosevelt on Friday night in a state Class 4A second-round game.

'Heck ya,' said Wildcats senior Naomi Hidalgo, the school's all-time leading scorer who had 33 points with 21 in the first half. 'I'm glad. I'm blessed to be here.'

The 23-1 Wildcats will host 10th-seeded Green Mountain (18-6) at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the round of 16.

The second quarter was the name of the game for Greeley Central, back in the Sweet 16 for the second-straight. Pueblo West ousted the Wildcats in the Class 4A Sweet 16 a year ago, 55-31, and the Cyclones also eliminated Greeley Central in the second round in 2017.

Greeley Central outscored the Roughriders 22-13 in the second quarter, helped by 7-1 run that broke open the game to 37-24 and the Wildcats cracked down on defense to hold Roosevelt without a field for nearly four minutes.

'They're a physical team and we had to cope with that,' said Greeley Central senior post player Aubree Raimer, who added 14 points. 'We tried to set screens and get around them.'

Roosevelt got within 10 points in the third quarter, but the Roughriders couldn't get much closer and late in the quarter, the lead was back up to 13 at 48-35 when Micaela Hidalgo went for a steal, stayed with the ball that was eventually picked up by Naomi Hidalgo, who found Raimer for the finish with 2 minutes, two seconds left to play.

NBA Draft Combine Notebook: Nicolas Claxton Displays Versatility - 4 days ago
CHICAGO - The on-court portion of the draft combine wrapped up on Friday, with two more scrimmages giving prospects a chance to perform in front of the entire league. As a whole, five-on-five play was heavily watered down this year as a vast majority of potential first-round picks opted not to play, aiming to protect their draft stock. Regardless, there were a number of intriguing players who benefited this week. There were also some guys who struggled. Some of the more noteworthy perform...   [read more]
