EL CENTRO — Though granted the second seed in this year’s CIF-SDS Division IV girls’ basketball playoffs the Southwest Eagles were decided underdogs as they faced off against 15th-seeded Granite Hills at home on Wednesday.

With a roster almost completely eradicated over the past few weeks by a combination of disciplinary dismissals and injuries, the Eagles had little chance of recapturing the postseason magic that propelled them to a CIF-SDS Division V title in 2019.
