Date of DV-MP girls game changed
The second meeting between Desert Vista and Mountain Pointe girls basketball teams moved up a day to Jan. 30 at DV because the boys game is being played at US Airways Center on Jan. 31.
The idea behind it is to get as many students, including the girls team, from both schools to attend the game.
