“Winning the tournament championship is great,” said Chinle first-year head coach Brandon Tso. “The guys played outstanding throughout the tournament, the three games they played.”

“The guys were focused,” Tso said. “The guys shot well in the first half. The defense forced turnovers and the guys converted.”
