Freshman Trevor Galloway, No. 34, and sophomore Zach Simmons, No. 25, converge to help senior Bryant Briscoe as he goes to the floor during a drive to the basket in Mingus Union High School' 60-42 home loss to Flagstaff High School on Monday, Jan. 6.Flagstaff senior Trevor Johnson led all scorers with 14 points in the victory, which was a double-digit margin from the first quarter on as the Eagles used numerous second-chance opportunities on the glass to jump out to a 22-5 first-quarter lead.
