Madison pounded Manchester, 75-33, while Morenci beat Pittsford, 62-42.
Alex Thomas scored 32 points for Morenci in its win.
“We have to stop the Thomas train,” Madison coach Jeff Webster said about Thursday’s early season showdown at Morenci.
Bulldog coach Jim Bauer said Thomas has been playing well.
“He’s scored 27, 29 and 32 in our last three games,” Bauer said. “The nice thing is he’s playing very unselfishly. He’s letting the game come to him, which is good.”
