Four games involving the 5A Continental race dominate the boys’ basketball top 10 schedule for Thursday.  Only one of the games includes two teams still unbeaten in league play as #10 Highlands Ranch takes on Legend.  Those two are tied with Rock Canyon, Chaparral and ThunderRidge for the early conference lead.
#4 Longmont (4A) looks to stay alone atop the Northern league standings as they host Northridge.  The Trojans are 5-0 in conference play with a one game edge on Thompson Valley.  The top two squads collide next Tuesday.
Elsewhere, a non-league matchup between #8 Ignacio and Sargent could also be interesting.  Sargent looks a two-game losing skid and the Bobcats could use a solid non-league win to boost RPI as they were ranked 22nd in the first standings released earlier this week.
Below is the entire Top 10 Schedule for the night.  We’ll post scores first to our Daily Scoreboard and then update our list here.  Final scores can be sent to us through email to [email protected] or by text to 970.380.7737.
