The Prescott Badgers snapped a six game losing streak to end their season on a high note, by beating the Mohave Thunderbirds 65-57 in Bullhead City last night. It was the second time this season that the Badgers beat Mohave. The first was on January 11 in Prescott, by a score of 60-57. 

It took both teams a full quarter plus to get the offenses going. Mohave managed to lead by a 7-2 score after one. The Badgers pulled within three, to trail 21-18 at the half. The second half both teams found the basket, with Prescott putting together a 15-2 run to take a 42-34 lead.  The Thunderbirds turned up the heat a bit, but the Badgers once again had a good offensive quarter for the final eight minutes. One big plus was that Prescott was perfect from the line in the final quarter, helping to preserve the lead and the win.
 
Badgers coach Travis Stedman said, "Our kids really battled tonight, and took care of business on the defensive end. It just took us a quarter to get going offensively."
 
Colin Hicks led the Badgers in scoring with 14 points, followed by senior Aydan McKenna with 11. Dellin Boyd and Jason Parent scored 10 each.

Prescott ends the season at (3-9) in the Grand Canyon Region and (6-16) overall.
