Pueblo passed the 90-point mark for the third time this year Thursday night, pacing the squad to almost 75 points a game. The Warriors are now ranked fourth in the nation in scoring thanks in part to the 92-60 win over Sunnyside, which came two days after the Warriors beat Phoenix Metro Tech 96-19.

Gilbert Mesquite is the top-scoring team in the nation at 80 points an outing and Phoenix Xavier Prep is fifth at 73.5. Phoenix Arcadia is tenth at 71.4 and we would have to scroll all the way down to 128th to find the next Southern Arizona team in Rio Rico at 58.8 points a game…
