Story excerpt:

"Obi Agbim provided a spectacular highlight, while his Rangeview boys basketball team methodically kept alive its chance to defend last season’s Class 5A state championship with Saturday night’s Great 8 win.

With balance, composure and chemistry, the Raiders picked up right where they left off last season when they won the program’s first state title in more than three decades with a 59-43 that came with a twist provided by their senior point guard.

Agbim finished with a game-high 19 points, including two that came on a spectacular one-handed rebound dunk during the first half that set the Denver Coliseum buzzing more than it had during any of the four quarterfinal contests.

'I’ve done it a couple of times, but usually the ball doesn’t come my way,' said Agbim, who finished with 11 points in the opening half to help get the Raiders off to a strong start.

'When it did come my way and I had it in my hand, I was like 'Ok, just throw it down,' he added. 'It was the perfect opportunity.'"
