No. 10 Sabino beat No. 7 Pusch Ridge 52-34 Friday night at Amphitheater High School to advance to the quarterfinal round of the 3A Conference playoffs.

Sabino (20-8) finished in a rare four-way tie for first place in the 3A South Region with Pusch Ridge (20-7), No. 9 Empire (18-9) and No. 11 Tanque Verde (21-8) but the Sabercats had one more loss in the conference play, handing the three automatic state berths to the other three teams. Despite that setback, the Sabercats earned an at-large playoff berth and, thanks to their win over Pusch Ridge, will be the only 3A team from Southern Arizona to advance to the quarterfinals….
