Girls to play Colton
There has been a late change in the Prairie girls basketball schedule.
Instead of a return game at Orofino on December 17, Prairie will play at Colton, Washington instead.
According to Travis Mader, Kamiah was looking to trade out of having to play Colton, since it would be a very non-competitive game for them this year. For Prairie it is a definite upgrade in schedule over a team they just got done beating by over 60 points.
With the game at Colton, Prairie will get introduced to the 30-second shot clock used by Washington teams.
