CHS BASKETBALL: Cats to face Taos again

CNJ staff

For the second consecutive day, the weather has impacted Clovis High’s Purple Pepper Shootout.

Taos was slated to meet Roswell High at 6 p.m. and Canyon, Texas, was slated to take on the Wildcats at 7:30 p.m. Canyon and Roswell could not make the trip because of road conditions, so the Cats (14-1) will meet Taos (9-8) for the second consecutive night.

Clovis defeated Taos 68-33 on Friday, breaking open a three-point game with a 41-8 run in the third period that included a school record nine 3-pointers.

Also, Alamogordo was slated to face the Clovis girls in 3 (junior varsity) and 4:30 p.m. (varsity) clashes, but those games were postponed. CHS athletic director Brian Stacy said a decision on a possible makeup of the girls game has not been made.

Clovis Christian’s games at Grady were to go on as scheduled Saturday night, while a doubleheader sending Tucumcari to Fort Sumner was postponed.

Eastern New Mexico University’s games against Southeastern Oklahoma, scheduled for Saturday afternoon in Durant, Okla., were postponed on Friday due to icy roads in Oklahoma and likely will not be made up.
