Girl baller was part of epic 28-game Lady Bengals win streak

Ni’Asia McIntosh, a member of the girls basketball team at Gallup High School and one of best basketball players — girls or boys — to ever don a Bengals uniform, will be taking her talents to New Mexico Junior College come fall, officials confirmed.

Gallup High girls basketball coach Kamau Turner said McIntosh, a scoring and rebounding machine who stands 6-feet-tall and who played center for the Lady Bengals, signed a letter-of-intent to play for the Lady Thunderbirds last month at Gallup High School.

A very large crowd at Ford Canyon took on the clouds and threatening rain on May 7, with sunshine being the ultimate reward as the Miyamura Patriot girls’ team shut out Los Alamos in the opening round of the State Tournament, 11-0.

The boys’ games in Artesia were not so happy as they were beaten in the first two games of a best-of-three series, 2-0 on May 6 and 11-1 on May 7. The losses eliminated the sophomore-heavy team from further play this season.

“I was totally shocked. I was surprised,” Nez said of getting the chance to go to Australia. “It’s a great opportunity. I...
