PREPS

There's nothing big prep-wise in today's paper – or in the West Side papers – but there are a lot of little things.

Tonight, we'll be out at a prep hoop game (games) and we'll have a report here in the morning. But until then, you'll have to make do with this.

Here's our Idaho roundup, which leads with girls basketball, and our Washington roundup, led by wrestling.

For more prep information, don't fail to check Mike Vlahovich's Prep Report blog and Greg Lee's Idaho Prep Sports blog.

Collville star running back and defensive back John Roberts (pictured; Spokesman-Review photo by Chris Anderson) is one of two high school athletes who committed Thursday to attending Eastern Washington University to play football next season.

This isn't exactly preps, but hundreds of cross-country runners, ages 8 to 18, are descending on Spokane as we speak, ready to run in Saturday's USA Track and Field National Junior Cross Country Championships at Plante's Ferry Park.

One of the best high school player's in the nation, Lake Oswego's Kevin Love, will be in Seattle Saturday for a tournament. Love is headed to No. 1 UCLA next year. Jim Moore does an interview with him.
