In the past, exceeding on the AIMS testing meant that Arizona high school students could qualify for free tuition at one of the three Arizona universities.

No. 10 Basha at No. 7 Horizon: A modern-day, hooray-for-offense fan’s dream. These two teams could combine to score 90 without flinching. Leading by 14 or even 21 points within most any stretch of the game won’t matter much. Who’s going to stop who, when, and how often? Zach Werlinger is slinging the ball as well as anyone in the East Valley this season (62 percent completions, 22 touchdowns, 8 interceptions) throwing to Doc O’Connor, Ryan Robertson and Joe Storm, and Rajhan Meriwether has gotten the running game going the past three weeks. Still, a win over Gilbert doesn’t make all the world better after a three-game losing streak, and the Bears’ defense is going to get plenty of help from the offense. Can the ‘D’ do the job? Horizon (pictured in white) isn’t real big up front, but the skill position kids and run-pass balance is difficult to stop. It’s last team standing in this one, and the Huskies best hope is to stuff Basha’s running game, though it didn’t work against Pinnacle and Marcos de Niza in losses. Pinnacle was the best among common opponents (Basha beat Pinnacle 35-21, Horizon lost to Pinnacle 49-39) but the Pioneers didn’t play well against Basha and committed turnovers. If Basha wins the plus-minus battle, it wins the game. If not, some defensive players are going to be pretty wiped out.
Prediction: Horizon 44, Basha 38
