Canyon (11-4) at Clovis (6-5)
7 p.m. today at The Rock
On the air: KCLV-AM 1240, KTQM-FM 99.9.
Last time out: The Wildcats lost 61-51 at Las Cruces High on Saturday to move their losing skid to three games. The Eagles beat Lubbock Monterey 55-46 last Tuesday night at Lubbock.
Last meeting: 2009, Clovis beat the Eagles 73-61.
Canyon players to watch: Dylan Douglass, Cody Price.
What to expect: A lot of man-to-man defense, which Clovis coach Matt King considers to be good training for the District 4-5A season coming up. Of Clovis’ 11 games this season, including two against Sandia, 10 of the opponents went with primarily a zone defense.
Canyon likely won’t play much zone defense.
“Neither (opponent, Hobbs nor Carlsbad) in our district does,” King said. “We’re going to see a lot of man the rest of the year.”
