The Gallup Bengals won the 72nd Gallup High School Invitational Basketball Tournament on Jan. 9.  Gallup overcame Tohatchi in round one on Jan. 7, then defeated Sandia Prep in round two the following day before moving on to face Grants in the final on Saturday evening.  The game tipped off at 7:30 pm before a huge hometown crowd.  The two teams battled back and forth and finished the fourth quarter tied at 70, pushing the game into overtime.  Gallup got the best of Grants in overtime, outscoring them 8-2 and winning the game 78-72, clenching first place in the tournament.
