The weekend of April 7-9, the Prairie/PCI AAU team played in the Snake River Shoot Out in Lewiston Idaho. It was their final tournament of the year.
The tournament began on Friday evening at 5:00 for Prairie/PCI with a 56 – 50 win over the Clarkston Hoops. Their second game was played on Saturday afternoon and ended in a 67 – 37 win over Reardon. Later that day Prairie/PCI was again successful in posting a 60 – 57 win over the Spokane Edge. Sunday morning the Prairie/PCI team suffered a 54 – 69 loss to Rogers Rush, who later became the tournament champions. This 15 point loss was the closest that any team had come to the Rogers Rush team in the past two Snake River Shoot Out tournaments.
