The Lewis and Clark-Pasco boys basketball game concludes tonight's first round of the regional basketball playoffs, but it could be a litmus test for our chances when the CBBN 6 take on the GSL 2.
"Pasco is a horrible matchup for us and we're a horrible matchup for Pasco," said coach Jeff Norton.
The Bulldogs have no size, 6-foot-1 the biggest, but have piled up the points of late. They'll press and shoot the 3-pointer, while the Tigers hope to counter with their size and patience. How they fare will tell us how good the that league is compared to ours.
"This week we talked about the football players winning state," said Norton. "At one point in the season when they weren't winning league, they caught lightning in a bottle for five weeks. We had a rough go, got things sorted out and caught lightning in a bottle."
Maybe the magic will continue.
LC's girls are in Walla Walla and that will also compare talent. Gonzaga Prep boys and Mead girls are at home tonight at 6 p.m. for local prep fans. Also on the road are Mt.
