Carlsbad Cavemen upset Roswell Coyotes, still alive for playoffs

Carlsbad's Damian Perez blocks a shot by Roswell's Rhett Stokes early in the first quarter at the Coyote Den on Tuesday. Carlsbad won, 59-43.

ROSWELL — There is a reason why Carlsbad boys basketball coach John Zumbrun has been a nemesis to Roswell girls basketball teams for years and now the boys’ basketball team.

Zumbrun, after 238 wins and 12 years of coaching the Cavegirls, used to give Roswell girls’ coach Joe Carpenter fits with his different styles of play. Now, Zumbrun has taken over the Cavemen this year and may have ruined Roswell’s boys’ basketball season.
