Blowouts highlight first day of action

1B STATE BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT

The first-ever 1B tournament is underway in Yakima, and if the video on KREM-2 last night is any indication, good seats are still available.

On the court, there were a lot of first-round blowouts, though girls' pre-tournament favorite Sprague-Harrington didn't post one of them, with a 42-31 win over Entiat. Curlew, Inchelium, Colton and Tekoa-Oakesdale did while Garfield-Palouse lost by two to another pre-tournament pick, Sunnyside Christian.

On the boys' side, Spokane-area teams Curlew, LaCrosse-Washtucna and Almira/Coulee-Hartline all won to move into the quarterfinals.
