…Burries came into the night needing 25 points to become the state’s all-time leading scorer. Only three prep basketball players in the history of Arizona have ever scored more than 3,000 points and the Globe senior was one of them and he leads the list. He passed former Shadow Mountain, University of Arizona and NBA legend Mike Bibby (3.002) ten days ago and only former Estrella Foothills and ASU standout Corey Hawkins (3,154) stood in his way….

…Globe is now 10-0 in the 2A South Region and St. Augustine is 8-2 with both losses coming against Globe. Globe beat St. Augustine in an epic 101-97 game on Dec. 11. Ranked No. 3, Globe will travel to No. 36 Santa Rita next Tuesday and No. 7 St. Augustine will travel to No. 47. San Miguel on the same night. The top two teams from each region will get an automatic playoff berth so both Globe and St. Augustine are pretty much a lock for the postseason….
