They have had the toughest schedule this season out of any conference and any region. The Mingus Union Girls basketball team has a record of 9-19 as they headed into the first round of the region tournament on Tuesday.

The No. 4 team in the Grand Canyon Region Marauders faced Sinagua at home Tuesday night. A win sends the Marauders to Page on Thursday while a loss gets them ready for the first round of State on Tuesday, Feb. 12.

The Marauders wrapped up the regular season schedule with a win over Bradshaw Mountain Friday night.

The two times Mingus has faced Sinagua, each team got a win on their own court, which Coach Will Rider would hope that would work toward their advantage, taking on Sinagua at home.

Currently the Marauders are ranked No. 7 in the power rankings, which would give them a first round game at home for the State Tournament. The Rankings aren't final though. There are still a couple of teams that have yet to finish their regular season, so the Marauders could finish as low as No. 9 or No. 10, sending them on the road for a first round game. Either way, coach Rider won't know until Friday or so where his team lands in the rankings.
