Xavier Basketball traveled “all the way” to Glendale, AZ — State Farm Stadium – for the Section 7 Girls Weekend Basketball Tournament June 15-17. How large was this tournament?

  • Over 140 girls basketball teams
  • Represented by 8 states
  • Eight 16-team brackets being played on 12 basketball courts under the Cardinal Stadium roof over 3 days
  • Each team getting 4 games
  • College coaches representing around 80 universities (many from Division 1: Duke, Univ. of North Carolina, Univ. of Michigan, etc.) from across the nation scouting the athletes

Xavier competed in the Arizona Family Bracket.

First Round: 55-42 Win over Sage Hill, CA
Quarterfinals: 73-54 Win over Chaminade, CA
Semifinals: 59-65 Loss to eventual Bracket Champion, Etiwanda, CA

Important Note: Xavier’s Summer Basketball Tournaments marked the return of highly-talented Sarah Miller ’24, who missed her entire junior year last season. We are looking forward to seeing her play during the upcoming 2023-24 season.
