Panorama League: It has been decided which girls teams are best in the North and South divisions. Now all that’s left is to determine the best in the Panorama. North Division leader Curlew (13-0, 8-0) travels to South-leading Cusick (13-1, 8-0) on Saturday night for the only regular-season meeting between the teams. Among boys, all-leaguer Preston Wynne, who had been ineligible, played his first game of the season on Friday, scoring 37 in Wellpinit’s 70-54 win over Springdale, snapping the Redskins’ five-game losing streak. … Bi-County: Lind-Ritzville’s boys put themselves in control with a 48-42 win at Northwest Christian on Saturday. NWC (10-1, 8-1) doesn’t have to wait long for another shot at the Broncos (11-0, 9-0). Tuesday night, NWC plays L-R in Lind, likely to decide the league champion. Among girls, Sprague-Harrington (11-1, 10-0) maintains the league lead after escaping with a five-point win at Davenport (6-6, 5-5) on Saturday. The recent play of 5-9 junior all-leaguer Stacie Shields should concern opponents, as she averaged 25 points a game in S-H’s last three wins. … Whitman County: It’s a tight race for the girls, with Garfield-Palouse (13-1, 6-1) and Tekoa-Oakesdale (10-3, 6-1) tied for first. T-O previously defeated Gar-Pal, but the Nighthawks also lost to fourth-place LaCrosse-Washtucna (7-4, 3-3). The race for boys is tighter, with five teams battling it out for first. T-O (11-2, 5-2) is in first place and L-W (10-3, 5-3) in second. Asotin (10-4, 4-3), Gar-Pal (8-5, 4-3) and St. John-Endicott (9-5, 4-3) are in a three-way tie for third. Friday matchups have T-O at Colton, SJE at L-W and Asotin at Rosalia.
