It’s Longhorns vs. VC in sectional first round Feb. 8

The Payson High School boys basketball team begins pursuit of a Division III, Section III tournament championship tomorrow, Wednesday, Feb. 8, against Valley Christian at Valley Vista High School in Surprise. The Horns (16-11) advance to the postseason shoot-out as a No. 4 seed against fifth seeded VC, a private parochial school in Chandler. If the Horns whip VC, Payson would advance to a tournament semifinal game on Feb. 10 against the winner of an opening round clash pitting No. 1 Parker against No. 8 Northwest Christian. The winner of that game plays Feb. 11 for the sectional title. All games will be played at Valley Vista. The Division III state tournament tips off Tuesday, Feb. 14 at a site to be determined. The Horns enter the tournament having put an end to a three-game losing streak with a 52-46 triumph over Show Low in a season finale played Feb. 3 in Show Low.
