Colville High (8-8, 3-5) dropped a pair of Great Northern League boyâ€™s basketball
games last week.
The Indians battled East Valley (14-3, 7-2) on nearly even terms before a pair of late three-pointers by Tanner Jacobs keyed a 57-54 Knightsâ€™ win Friday night in Spokane.
One afternoon later in Colville, the Indians hung with high-flying Clarkston (14-2, 6-2) before the Bantamsâ€™
superior firepower and speed took over and the visitors raced to a 71-58 win.
Colville had no answer for 6-foot-1 swingman Kage Sobotta, who poured in 27 points.
Matt Hubbard led Colville with 23 points.
Colville faces an important
week on the home hardwoods. The Indians host West Valley (11-5, 4-4) on Tuesday. Game time is 5:45 p.m.
On Thursday, Cheney (4-13, 1-8) visits. Game time is 5:45 p.m.
