Paradise Valley held on to defeat Marana Mountain View 46-43 Tuesday night to remain undefeated (11-0) in power-ranking games. Ranked No. 2 in the current Division II AIA/MaxPreps rankings, the Trojans are 16-2 overall with their two losses coming during invitationals.
The Mountain Lions are ranked 34th and missed a great chance to make a drastic move up heading into sectional play. Mountain View is 9-6 overall and 4-6 in ranking games. The loss to Paradise Valley was the third loss in a row for the Mountain Lions and things will not get easier with games against Tucson, Ironwood Ridge, Nogales, Salpointe and Sunnyside on the horizon.
