Wrap up of yesterday's action
Sugar 60 Timberlake 26: The Diggers turned what was a fairly competitive game into a complete laugher, outscoring Timberlake 32-4 in the 2nd half.
Kimberly 57 Parma 55: I had a feeling this would be the best game of the day, and the fans who were there certainly got their money's worth. Came down to the final shot.
Marsh Valley 64 Kellogg 52: Marsh Valley advanced to the semifinals for the first time in many years with a double digit win over Kellogg.
Fruitland 64 Snake River 43: When was the last time a Coombs coached team lost by 20 at the state tournament? Fruitland certainly was the favorite coming in, but this matchup tends to be fairly competitive, though Fruitland typically ends up winning.
Timberlake vs Parma: This should be the easiest pick of the day. Parma is a better team than Timberlake, period, end of story.
Kellogg vs Snake River: Snake River isn't used to losing, and certainly isn't used to getting blown off the court. Kellogg has become a regular at the state tournament, but this isn't their best team they've brought. Snake should win comfortably.
Sugar vs Kimberly: It's a rubber match and the reward is a trip to the Idaho Center! Both teams are very well coached and this should be a very entertaining game. I'll take the Diggers in a very close contest.
Marsh Valley vs Fruitland: Marsh Valley certainly got a better tournament draw than Snake. However, they are going to have their hands full with a deep and athletic Fruitland squad. Marsh Valley lives and dies by the 3ball. Fruitland is also a solid 3ball team, however, they also have a very good interior game. Fruitland is the better team on paper and had a much more impressive win yesterday. Fruitland rolls by 20 again.
