Maxwell Bears Win First-Ever State Title Over Springer

By Marty Mayfield

KRTN Multi-Media –

It was a long time coming.  57 years in the making, noted Coach Eloy Brazil in the post- game interview, as the Maxwell Bears came from behind to take the lead and hold off an early fourth quarter rally by Springer to capture the Boys NM State Class A Championship trophy, with a 63 to 53 win.  The first-ever state trophy for the Maxwell Bears, came in an early Saturday morning showdown, March 11th at the Pit in Albuquerque.

These two teams had met five times already this season with Maxwell coming out on top in the most important one that also included a district tie breaker and a 5A district championship game. During the selection process for the state tourney Isaiah Garcia noted only one coach gave Springer the credit they deserve and quipped about it saying it could be a blue devil holding the trophy at the end of the year.

Both teams knew it would be a tough game and they didn’t disappoint as both Coach Brazil and Coach Johnny Chavez mentioned later that they came into the game knowing how the other team played and what to expect. Chavez told KRTN that in the third quarter they had several shots that simply rolled around and out which cost Springer dearly.  Maxwell’s  Aaron Salazar hit six of six from the free throw line that Brazil said kept them in the game.

Hundreds of Northern New Mexico fans poured into the Pit and saw Springer start the scoring off early with a 3-pointer by Estevan Romero and then turned up the heat for the rest of the first quarter. As Andrew Archuleta of Maxwell later noted, the nerves were there for the Bears as this was the first time for them to play in the PIT.  But, as Springer extended their lead, the nerves began to settle for Maxwell and shots started falling. By late in the second quarter Maxwell had come back from a 10 point deficit to tie the game at 23 and again at 27. As the halftime buzzer blew in Wise Pies Arena, Springer held a two point lead 33-31.

As the third period got underway, those errant roll-around-the-rim balls by Springer left Maxwell with a growing lead and Springer being outscored 18-6 in the pivotal quarter.  Maxwell took a 12 point lead at one point, but Springer is never out of a game as they proved in the quarter-finals against Hondo Valley. In the Hondo Valley game, Springer came back from an 11 point deficit with under three minutes left to tie at the end of regulation and win in OT.  They then beat #1 seed Quemado in the semis to make it to their second consecutive NM State  Championship.  So it was no surprise when Springer mounted a comeback in Saturday’s Championship and brought the score to within one.

Soon the momentum once again fell to Maxwell as they managed to add 10 points at the free throw line in the fourth and pull away.  The crowd cheers grew as they knew Maxwell had wrapped this one up and secured a Class A title 63-53.

This was Coach Brazil’s fifth year at Maxwell and he is one of the few who have coached three different schools to championships. Ironically, the previous title before today’s was at Springer where he won the 2004 and 2002 Championships.  He also hoisted the Championship banner while coaching Cimarron in 1979.

Maxwell Finishes Strong to Earn State Championship Berth

The Maxwell Bears outhustled and Kolten Riggs outmuscled the Melrose Buffaloes to earn a decisive 68-50 semifinal win and a trip to the Pit in Albuquerque for a shot at a Boys Class A NM State Championship.

The Bears started hot with Karl Gonzales hitting three of his seven three-pointers in the first period and Riggs pulling down defensive rebounds to stake the Bears to a 21-12 advantage after the first 8 minutes.  Gonzales would hit 7 of 12 three point attempts for the game and wind up with 26 points.  Riggs, a freshman, hauled down a total of 18 rebounds, blocked four shots, scored 20 points including three threes and for the most part, held Melrose’s big man, Jordan Jasso, in check scoring 17.

Aaron Salazar scored eight of his 10 points in the fourth quarter to help Maxwell turn back a second half rally as Melrose tied it at 38-all and was only down six going into the last period. Andrew Archuleta added 8 points in addition to his  seven assists and ball handling skills, while Jeremy Archuleta had four.

Maxwell will be seeking its first ever state championship when it faces district foe Springer in the Pit on Saturday, March 11 at 8 am.

The game will be broadcast on KRTN FM 93.9 and streamed on Network1Sports.com

 

Springer Knocks Off #1 Seed To Make NM Class A Championship

Northeastern New Mexico once again showed the state that our corner can play ball with the best of them as Springer and Maxwell dispatched #1 seed Quemado and #3 seed Melrose to punch their tickets to the NM Class A Boys Championship.

Playing in Bernalillo on Thursday, March 9th, Springer was the first to clinch as they battled #1 seed Quemado to a 12 all tie after one period.  Then, a combination of tenacious Springer defense and a cold shooting hand for the Eagles translated to only 2 points in the second period and Springer held an eight point lead at the half. The drought for Quemado continued into the second half as the normally potent scoring machine could only muster three points in the period and in the game couldn’t get any three-point shots to fall in 12 attempts.

Springer on the other hand, made 16 of 21 field goal attempts in the second half, was 6 of 6 at the line and 2 of 4 from beyond the three point arc. Isaiah Garcia finished with 21 points, including three threes, while Bryan Romero had 12, Estevan Romero with 7, Jacob Quintana’s smothering defense created three steals and his offense provided six points.  Zach Sanchez also had six and the Red Devils center went down hard late in the game, and had to be helped off the court, but after the game, coach Johnny Chavez said it looked like just a sprain and they would evaluate the seniors status for Saturday’s championship. Damien Blaubach and Zac Caldwell scored four apiece and Colton Shaw put in a two-for-two showing at the line.

Making the Springer effort that much more impressive was the fact that they battled Hondo Valley the night before into overtime, before prevailing 89-87.

For Springer it will be back-to-back appearances in the title game and their seventh overall.

Area Teams Advance to Semis in NM State Tourney

Northeastern NM basketball teams went three-for-three in quarterfinal action Wednesday, March 8th at the NM State Basketball Championships.  The Lady Roy/Mosquero Longhorns beat Coronado 65-56, the Maxwell Bears boys defeated Floyd 62-37 and Springer Red Devils came back from fourth quarter and overtime deficits to notch a thrilling 89-87 win over Hondo Valley as all earned victories to advance to the state semifinals at Bernalillo High School.

The three victories were all done in different fashion as Maxwell started their game very cold from the floor against Floyd, trailing by five after the first quarter.  But then, Carl Gonzales hit two 3s, and Kolton Riggs scored 12 in the quarter to stake the Bears to a  31-18 lead at the half which was never seriously challenged.  Riggs had 19, including 11 of 14 from the foul line, Aaron Salazar had 16 including five three-pointers, Jeremy Archuleta and Gonzalez each had 11, Andrew Archuleta had 3 and Devon Cruz 2 points for the Bears who will play Melrose on Thursday March 9 for the right to play for the Championship on Saturday morning in The Pit.

Springer’s win over Hondo Valley was a gut-checking roller coaster for the Red Devils as they trailed by one after the first period, then had the lead 35-28 at halftime only to see it disappear in the third period.  Trailing by as many as 11 with just under three minutes to go in the game, Springer would not cave in and with seniors Isaiah Garcia, Estevan Romero and Damien Blaubach leading the way, came back in the fourth period, but still trailed by two.  With just seconds remaining it was freshman Gabriel Garcia who turned back defeat as time was running out in regulation, he heaved a desperation three pointer up that was off the mark, but was fouled and went to the line with .3 seconds on the clock.  Garcia stepped up and made two of the three to send the game into overtime.

In the extra period, it again looked like Springer was going to fall, but sheer determination and key buckets by Bryan Romero gave senior Jacob Quintana the chance to put back his own missed shot in the final seconds to secure the amazing win.

Springer will play Quemado at 3 pm on Thursday after the #1 seed just escaped an upset by #9 seed San Jon 63-62.

The Lady Roy/Mosquero Longhorns had a relatively easy time in disposing Coronado. The Harding County team never trailed and led by three after one, six at half, ten at the end of the third and the final margin of nine.

Eighth grader Riley Clavel had 23, Mya Vigil had 17, Bailey Smith had 10, Kassandra Velarde had 9, Sherrie Ray 3, Kandall Smith 2 and McKenzie Lightfoot had 1 as everyone that suited up scored for coach Bob Libby.

# 3 seed Roy/Mosquero Ladies will play #2 Melrose on Thursday at 1:15 pm for a chance to be in the Friday morning final at the Pit at 11:30.

KRTN is broadcasting all three of the games on 93.9 FM and streaming on Network1Sports.com
