The Perry Pumas pulled off a huge 56-48 upset win over the Hamilton Huskies on Tuesday night. It was a battle between two of the top teams in the 6A division showcasing some of the top talent in Arizona, as Hamilton went into the game ranked second in the AIA, while Perry went in ranked fourth.

It was all Hamilton in the beginning of the first quarter, as they quickly were able to jump out to a 7-0 lead. But Perry was able to battle back, and thanks to a buzzer-beating half court shot by junior Shayla O'Neil, the score at the end of one was 13-10. Both teams kept up the same pace in the second quarter, with each scoring 11.

At the half, Perry made some adjustments and came out ready to play. The Pumas started playing more aggressively and were able to take the lead just before the start of the fourth quarter. Hamilton junior Graciela Roybal hit three shots from behind the arc in the final eight minutes of the game in an effort to help get the Huskies back on top, but it just was not enough, as Perry was ultimately able to pull away.
