They may have been out-sized and out-numbered, but the Mayer High basketball boys were anything but out-classed at the annual Bradshaw Mountain Alvarez Tire Holiday Hoops Classic tournament this past week in Prescott Valley. Despite lopsided losses to much larger schools, the Wildcats showed plenty of class.

With no seniors on the Mayer team, and missing starting point guard Tate Caldwell and sixth man Brandon Burns, both juniors, head coach Roland Medina brought only 8 players. They included sophomore Collin Worley and freshman Chandler Gutierrez, along with juniors Austin Couch, Chad Minnis, Bryce Atkerson, Shawnee Day, Dillon Darges and Nick McElroy.

Mayer opened Wednesday morning against host Bradshaw with a 71-24 loss.

The Wildcats' highlight had to have been Collin Worley's buzzer-beating 3-point shot as the third quarter ended.

Darges had 5 points, all in the first quarter, and Day, Couch, Gutierrez and McElroy contributed 4 points each. McElroy's 3-pointer and free throw were the only tallies of the second quarter.

Minnis and McElroy also had 3 rebounds apiece.

That afternoon Mayer fell to Perry 103-27.

Thursday afternoon, the Wildcats dropped their third game of the tourney to Catalina, 78-34. McElroy scored 13 points in that contest, the last game of bracket play, while Day added 9.

In the battle of the No. 4 teams from the Silver and Black brackets, Kingman triumphed 62-8 over Mayer Thursday night.

The Wildcats concluded the tourney Friday morning with a 75-20 loss to Payson.
