By the time the clock hit zeros, Valley Vista’s starters had long been resigned to the bench, content to see out their 6A semifinal win from there. When the win became official, they skipped onto the floor, engaging the reserves in high fives and hugs.

Even in a blowout, 61-39, win over Hamilton, none of them were taking this for granted, not after how their season started. But there was something understated about the proceedings, too. The celebration only lasted 15 seconds or so, and didn’t spill over into delirium, the way you might expect of a rogue No. 5 seed going on the road and stunning the top-seeded team in the conference.

That’s because Valley Vista doesn’t see itself that way.
