Pueblo South pulls away late to end Windsor’s season in the Class 4A boys basketball second round

Windsor's boys basketball team remained within striking distance all game but could never quite execute that opportunistic strike Saturday against powerhouse Pueblo South.

The second-seeded Colts maintained modest leads throughout the game to top No. 34 Windsor 56-47 in the second round of the Class 4A Boys Basketball Championships.

After trailing 17-11 through one quarter, the Wizards methodically chipped away at the early deficit, trailing just 38-35 after three quarters.

The Colts (18-6) closed strong to win their eighth consecutive game and advance to the round of 16.

Windsor wraps up its season with a 12-13 record.

Junior guard Kirk Relford was the Wizards' only double-digit scorer, pouring in 18 points, sinking 4 of 9 field goals and cashing in on all eight of Windsor's free throw attempts.

Senior forward Corte Tapia and junior swingman Tyler Mcginnis scored nine points apiece.

By and large, the Wizards struggled from the field, though, making just 17 of their 49 shots (35 percent). They had just five assists on their made baskets. They also struggled on the boards, grabbing 12 rebounds.
