Boys Basketball

LITTLETON | Before they disperse in July to improve their individual fortunes, Overland boys basketball players work on team in June. That process has gone very well so far, as coach Danny Fisher’s Trailblazers finished off a 6-0 run through the annual C3 Challenge Thursday at Arapahoe High School with a 63-59 win over Chaparral. It was the second straight summer tournament victory in a row for Overland, which came into the three-day C3 Challenge after winning the Metro State tournament.

Another fantastic boys basketball season and another state championship for Aurora. It’s become a trend lately. While the 2016-17 season wasn’t quite as dominant as the previous one, city programs were in the thick of things all season and the Class 5A state championship trophy came back again with Eaglecrest hoisting it this time. Aurora’s top talent appears on the Aurora Sentinel’s All-Aurora Boys Basketball Team, which is selected by the Sentinel in conjunction with input of city coaches.
