TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Dylan Newell nailed two of his four three-point shots in the fourth quarter as 10th seed Sahuaro outscored host Cholla 18-to-seven in the final stanza to win 49-43 in a Conference 5A 1st round game.

Newell finished with 16 points. Brendan Gary had 10 for the Cougars (20-7) who will now get a quarterfinal home game Saturday night thanks to 15th seed Liberty’s 93-89 upset of #2 seed Arcadia.

Tipoff will be at 6:30 p.m.

Marcel Dean led all scorers with 18 points, including 14 in the first half, as just like Newell he made four shots from behind the three-point arc.

The Cougars however stretched their zone defense out in the second half and held Dean without a field goal after the intermission ending Cholla's (19-5) 13-game winning streak and the Chargers season.

It's Sahuaro's fifth 20-win season in Jim Henry's seven years as a head coach.
