High School Basketball: Hoophall West Tournament-Pinnacle vs Rancho Christian Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Nico Mannion and the Pinnacle Pioneers captured their second straight 6A state championship on Tuesday, taking down Chaparral 83-64 at Wells Fargo Arena in Tempe.

The Arizona Wildcats signee had 34 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists on 12-of-21 shooting in his final high school game.

The 6-foot-3 Mannion was averaging 30.3 points, 6.3 assists, 6.0 rebounds and 2.7 steals per game entering the night, per MaxPreps. Pinnacle finishes the year 27-3.

Mannion is ranked as the No. 10 player in the 2019 class and No. 1 point guard, per 247Sports composite rankings.

Mannion received a loud ovation as he exited Tuesday’s game, something he probably can’t expect to get at Wells Fargo Arena from here on out.
