After watching Tuesday night’s basketball game at Gonzaga Prep and reading some other results, my suspicion that the Greater Spokane League wasn’t that good seemed confirmed. Then Lewis and Clark produced a 75-73 double overtime win in Pasco and it seemed to show further how unpredictable basketball has become.
GSL champ Gonzaga took it on the chin against Columbia Basin Big Nine No. 4 team Richland 54-45. The No 2 Tigers beat the CBBN No. 3 in 4A. Mt. Spokane was eliminated by Sunnyside in 3A 51-45. Fourth time proved a charm for Rogers which ousted North Central 55-43 after losing to the Indians three times during the year.
No. 1 Mead’s girls won easily over No. 4 Eastmont 49-27, but No. 2 LC was beaten 70-52 by CBBN No. 3 Walla Walla and Darcy Weisner’s freshman daughter Jamie (28 points, 19 rebounds). In 3A, North Central shocked East Valley to advance with its third win this year. Mt. Spokane lost 60-63 in a heartbreaker to Hanford in Richland.
