"I told them this year, 'If you guys want to go down that same path, do the same things, that's just where we're going to end up again,'" said Shiprock coach Larenson Henderson. "'If you want to be more team oriented and believe in each other … maybe our success will be better than last year.'"

That is the way the Tuba City boys basketball team is handling the 65-59 setback they suffered against Chinle on Jan. 24 at the Wildcat Den. (See play-by-play story on the Navajo Times website.)

The 19-3 Warriors dropped to 4-1 in sectional play while Chinle improved to 17-4 overall and 5-0 in league play.

After beating the Wildcats in two tournament games last December, the Warriors saw a different Chinle squad when the two powers renewed their rivalry last Friday night.
