Sequoia Pathway Academy basketball is heating up.
The Pumas junior high basketball team will play their regular season finale tonight in Tucson. The boys, coming off their 10th consecutive win, are ranked fifth in the Canyon Athletic Association.
The team won the Imagine Prep Basketball Tournament in January and are gearing up for their playoff run on Feb. 9 at Pathway.
Third-ranked varsity girls’ basketball remains undefeated at 11-0.
The team is led by “the most exciting basketball player in the state,” according to Pathway Athletic Director Nate Wong.
That player is sophomore point guard Aleina Estrada.
“Despite being the smallest player on the floor, she is averaging more than 20 points per game,” Wong said. “This week against perennial powerhouse Salt River High School, she scored 27 as the Lady Pumas won 52-29.”
Girls Varsity went on to defeat Mission Heights Prep 60-30 Wednesday night and face off at home against Coolidge’s Imagine Prep Feb. 2 at 5 p.m.
The Pumas play in Division 2 Region 5 of CAA.
