2018 Out­look:

Coach Chavez man­aged a win­ning record and a district cham­pi­onship in his first sea­son as head coach of the Taos Tigers Bas­ket­ball team.

Un­der Coach “Nando” Chavez, the Tigers scored an av­er­age of 65.4 points over their 29 game 2017/1028 sea­son, a re­mark­able im­prove­ment over the sea­son be­fore dur­ing which they broke 61 Or­ange, black, points only once.

De­fen­sively the Tigers al­lowed an av­er­age of 59.7 points per game.

The 2018 Tigers are an ex­pe­ri­enced team. If they can con­tinue the tra­jec­tory they took up last sea­son, they will be very strong. With the new dis­trict­ing, it will be some­what like a sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year of start­ing again. But, start­ing fresh served them well last year. Per­haps it will again.
