Here’s some morning news and notes from the hardwood:
-Cedarcrest’s basketball teams split last night against Granite Falls, with the boys getting a big win and the girls falling on the road. Here’s the wrapups from the Everett Herald:
-On the college hardwood, Portland’s men fell 74-62 Thursday night, with sophomore Tanner Riley, from North Bend, scoring seven points on 3-8 from the floor in a little under 20 minutes of action. Tonight, the Pilots are at Loyola-Marymount down in Los Angeles, and the 7:00 p.m. tip will be seen live on Comcast Sportsnet Northwest (digital channel 179 on Xfinity) or if you have a Dish or DirectTV, Fox Sports West out of Los Angeles. Chris McGee and Mitchell Butler will be calling the action tonight on the broadcast.
-College women’s basketball saw Humboldt State overcome a slow start to blow out CSU Stanislaus on the road, 82-63, last night in Turlock, CA. Caitie Richards, Humboldt junior from Snoqualmie, scored 12 points on 5-6 shooting in 24 minutes of action. Humboldt is at Chico State tonight.
-PLU’s men’s basketball team scored a 68-53 home conference win last night in Tacoma over Linfield. Freshman Andrew Alness, 2011 grad of Cedarcrest HS in Duvall, collected one rebound in limited action late in the contest.
Don’t forget, by the way, today, Cedarcrest’s boys and girls play in the afternoon against Archbishop Murphy, with the boys at home at 2:45 p.m. and the girls away at 12:45. So get on out and support the teams today if you are in the Lower Valley. These are big games for both Red Wolves teams so the more fans, the better.
