The Daily Times staff

AZTEC — The Aztec boys and girls both opened the Rumble in the Jungle basketball tournament in dominating fashion tonight at Lillywhite Gym in Aztec.

The AHS boys hammered Coronado 79-39, while the AHS girls opened on a 24-4 run and cruised to a 63-27 win over East Mountain.

Both Aztec squads kept swiping at the ball on defense and created plenty of scoring chances. Both squads also had height advantages attacking the boards on both ends of the floor.
