Girls Basketball - Filer Vs. Buhl

Filer's Kori Gartner (2) spins on Buhl's Kyra Azevedo during the Sawtooth Central Idaho Conference championship Wednesday night, Feb. 7, 2018, at CSI in Twin Falls.

Girls athlete of the week: Kyra Azevedo, Buhl

Azevedo scored a game-high 16 points in her lone appearance last week, but that only tells a fraction of the story. The junior guard led the Buhl girls basketball team to a 47-45 overtime win over Filer on Wednesday for the Sawtooth Central Idaho Conference championship, and she hit the game-winner: a jumper from the right elbow with about six seconds remaining. The win ended Buhl’s 15-year state tournament drought.

Boys athlete of the week: Pablo Miranda, Murtaugh

Miranda played one game last week, and he put up two games’ worth of points. The senior scored a game-high 29-points on five 3-pointers the Murtaugh boys basketball team’s 74-58 regular season-ending win over Shoshone on Monday. The Red Devils head into the North Side Conference tournament this week as the No. 3 seed.
