Tucson High beat Cesar Chavez 54-47 Friday night to take control of the 6A Metro Region with about three weeks left in the regular season. The victory is part of an incredible run in region play for the Badgers with only one loss dating back to January of 2014. A 47-1 record in that time produced five straight region titles but the wins have not translated to playoff success…
