The Mountain Pointe boys basketball team has played much better in recent weeks and that was evident on Wednesday night.

The eighth-seeded Pride lost 53-51 to No. 1 Mesa in the Division I, Section III first round.

Considering Mountain Pointe knocked off highly-ranked Gilbert to end the season and followed it up with a two-point loss to Mesa, the Pride is playing well heading into next week's state tournament.
