Moffat County plays the current 4A state champion and No. 2 seed Montezuma-Cortez at 4:30 p.m. at Mesa State College.

Andrew Blake’s 3-pointer with 4 minutes, 51 seconds left in the third quarter gave Glenwood a 27-24 lead, but a nine-point run to close the quarter gave the Bulldogs a 33-27 advantage entering the fourth quarter.
