On Friday, Jan. 26, the Comanches and the Villa Park Spartans faced off in a highly anticipated basketball game. Over 400 tickets were sold in the first 48 hours to see the rival schools. Canyon’s gym was packed with energetic and spirited students dressed in white, in respect to that night’s theme, white out.

The scoring began by a free throw made by Villa Park, but Canyon quickly retaliated with multiple three pointers by, numbers 23, 33, and 21. The first quarter ended with the Spartans trailing the Comanches 25-8. The Comanches remained dominant throughout the second quarter, and finished with a whopping 46 points, while the Spartans held a total of 24 points. The third quarter became exciting as Villa Park and Canyon battled to make a shot in the final seconds. Number two on Canyon’s team was able to get a hold of the ball and made a layup in the last fifty seconds. The Comanches started the final quarter strongly with a three pointer by number 21, who later on exhilarated the crowd with a dunk. The game ended in a 13 point difference, with the Comanches at 90, and the Spartans at 77. The top scoring players of the game were number two, with a total of 18 points, and number four, with a total of 23 points.

Not only was this a great win for Canyon–which putting their record at 22-2–but it also demonstrated the unity of the Tribe. The student section was kept alive and cheerful through the entirety of the game, which could put the Comanches at number one student section, once again.
