  • State 4A basketball: Longmont ends Frederick's season

    LONGMONT – Longmont went on a 13-0 late in the first quarter and early in the second period to turn back Frederick 72-34 in the first round of the state 4A boys basketball playoffs Feb. 22.

    "They were hot early. Playing at home, the rims are kind to you," FHS coach Enoch Miller said. "We had a hard time defensively. No. 11 (Toi Mugunga) is not a great outside shooter. But we knew he could attack the rim. He was able to break down our defense and create lots and lots of easy shots for other guys, and they knocked them in."
