LAFAYETTE — No fans stormed the court. There were a few hand-slaps exchanged by players, but no more so than after a typical win. And don’t look for any acknowledgment on a banner hung up in the Broomfield gym; that’s reserved for bigger accomplishments.

But, just for the record, let it be known that on Tuesday night, the Broomfield boys basketball team clinched its second straight outright 4A Northern League title, and third in a row counting a co-championship two years ago.

After a routine 67-36 victory Tuesday night at Centaurus, the Eagles quickly noted their accomplishment and set their sights on bigger things.

“We like having (the league title) — it’s important and something that we want to do — but it’s not our focus,” Broomfield coach Terrence Dunn said.

The Eagles, ranked seventh in the state in Class 4A, acted as if Tuesday was no more than a step on the way to greater things.

Facing Centaurus, now losers of 15 straight games and the last-place team in the Northern, Broomfield had few problems. The Eagles scored 27 points in the first quarter and shot 53 percent from the field for the game.

Defensively, the Eagles held Centaurus to 31 percent field-goal shooting and forced 22 turnovers.

The bottom line is, Broomfield (18-4 overall, 12-1 in league) has won 14 of its last 15 games heading into the regular-season finale against Niwot at home on Friday.

“I had the opportunity to play with the team last year that went on a (state) final four run, and I think we can do the same thing and maybe even go further,” said senior point guard Evan Kihn. “Anytime you’re winning conference championships, it’s something to be proud of. And we are proud of this, but it’s a steppingstone right now.”

Kihn put on an all-around show on Tuesday, finishing with 20 points, five steals, five rebounds and five assists. Fellow senior Spenser Reeb added 16 points for the Eagles.

“Broomfield, with the length and all the athleticism they have on this team, they could go real deep” in the playoffs, said first-year Centaurus head coach Brandon Gullicksrud.

Gullicksrud’s Warriors closed out the home portion of their season on Tuesday and dropped to 3-19 overall and 0-13 in the Northern League. They’ll finish their schedule Friday at Greeley Central.

On CHS’ senior night Tuesday, senior Lance Matosky led the way offensively with 11 points, and all five of his classmates who played scored.

“It’s been a tough season, but this group has remained coachable and they’ve worked hard,” Gullicksrud said.
