Winslow — No. 5 Winslow had No. 12 Mount View’s number all season — a trend that continued in the high school girls basketball Class B North prelim playoff game between the squads on Tuesday night, Feb. 14.

The Mustangs, which had not qualified for the regional tournament since 2007, went on the offensive early and scored the first four points on two of their first three possessions, but the visitors would net only three more field goals the remainder of the game as the Black Raiders, despite not playing their best, pulled away in the second half to pick up a 47-14 victory.
