Tonight is Rubber Chicken night at the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena and for the first time in awhile the boys game is significant. With only two games separating seven teams, including four 4A schools jockeying for district playoff position, the winner between Ferris (4-5) and Lewis and Clark (4-6) looms large.
LC upset Gonzaga Prep (9-1) 49-48 on Saturday. Here's an item about it in The Spokesman-Review this morning. Sean Hoffmann missed the game, Austin Ehlo took on his inside role and helped stabilize things with a 16-point day, including two 3-pointers. LC trailed by four points in the final seconds when Taylor Eglet hit a 3-pointer with nine seconds to go, and following a missed Prep free throw, Eglet drove and dished to Sage Poland who hit the winning basket at the buzzer. Ferris lost point to Mead, leaving the Panthers (5-4), Central Valley (5-5), Ferris and LC lumped together a game and one-half apart. I'll address that further in Thursday's S-R. Hoffmann was in Baltimore attending a funeral and is expected back for tonight's game.
