Valley Vista hoops still has upper hand vs. XCP

Xavier Prep’s basketball team carried a 3-0 record into its game against Surprise Valley Vista on Monday night (June 11) in the Thunderbird Summer League, a rematch of last season’s 6A Conference state championship game.

Unfortunately for the Gators, the result was pretty much the same. Valley Vista picked up a 57-47 victory, similar to the 68-55 defeat of XCP in the title game.

Xavier (3-1) now has the rest of this week off before finishing the summer league “regular season’’ with three games next week, on Monday (June 18) vs. Phoenix Horizon at 9 p.m., on Tuesday (June 19) vs. Scottsdale Chaparral at 5 p.m. and Thursday (June 21) vs. Cave Creek Cactus Shadows at 4 p.m.

Coach Jennifer Gillom also will be leading a week-long summer camp next week at Xavier.
