Second time in School History to make final four, last time was 2002 when they won it all in 5A. #1 North vs #13 MDN 845 pm and #3 Ironwood Ridge vs #15 Kofa 7pm on 2/27/08 at jobing.com Arena in Glendale Az.
Marcos upset #1 seed North 71-68 in double ot, Harrison Evens scored 35 points in this game. The Padres have so far beaten the #4, #5 and #1 seed in the State Tournament. If we can beat Ironwood Ridge, Marcos would have beaten 4 out of 5 teams in the Top 5 in the State, Wow this team is exciting to watch. We have the fastest backcourt in all of 5a, This could end up being a great story with the #13 seed winning the State title and finishing 16-16 for the year. 12 seniors strong, by far the best high school semi finals I ever witnessed. Marcos is all heart, they never quit even when they are playing the number 1 seed in 5a2 that won 12 straight games. This is our year to bring it back to Tempe. Harrison Evens had one of the best quotes I have ever heard when he was in the quarter finals in football, He said Big Players Make Big Plays in Big Games, Harrison lived up to that last night.
61 to 51 in State final to Ironwood Ridge, We had a nice run and it would have been icing on the cake if we could have won it all, We are proud of our team on what they accomplished and ended State runner up which isn't bad for a #13 seed, thanks to all the boys for their hard work.
