WOMENS BASKETBALL (0-2. 8-9)

Wednesday, Columbia Basin (2-0, 12-3) home.

Tonight is the first of seven league home games and Columbia Basin provides the opposition.  The Hawks fly into town with a 2-0 league record and on a six-game win streak.  This will not be the Knights’ first look at the Pasco outfit.  The two met December 15 at a tournament at Pierce and CB won 58-46.  A year ago WVC took two of three from the Hawks, splitting the league games and winning one in a tourney at Chemeketa.  Since 1974-75 when they first played,  Wenatchee Valley has topped the Hawks 52 to 34 overall and 25 to 17 at home.

 

Saturday, Walla Walla (1-0, 7-5) away.

This series started in 1974-75, in fact the first game the college ever played was against the Warriors.  Under coach Sherri Smith the young Knights (only one sophomore) lost 33-13 at Spokane Falls.  WVC came back and now have a 48-39 record against WWCC (although the Warriors have dominated the last eight years, winning 14 of 15. 

 

Standings: Columbia 2-0, Big Bend 2-0, Walla Walla 1-0, Spokane 1-1, Yakima Valley 1-1, Treasure Valley 0-1, Wenatchee Valley 0-2, Blue Mountain 0-2

 

MENS BASKETBALL (0-2, 6-9)

Wednesday, Columbia Basin (1-1, 8-6) home.’

Wenatchee Valley has fared well against the Hawks recently.  The Knight have won two in a row and four of seven.  May not sound like a big deal, but prior to 2010-11 Columbia Basin led the series by 50 wins, 88 to 38.  CBC comes to the 5th street gym with four wins in their last five games.

 

Saturday, Walla Walla (1-0, 8-7) away.

The Warriors have left a dent in the Knights’ armor since the series started in 1968-69.  The Walla Walla school has 77 wins to the Wenatchee Valley’s 30, including 13 of the last 15.  The Warriors one their only league game so far, but lost two of four prior to that.  The Black and Silver’s record in the southwest corner of the state could use a little boost…they have but eight wins in 54 games.

 

Last week in a couple of losses the Knights give up 104 points to Spokane and 111 to Big Bend.  The last time a pair of foes hit triple digits back-to-back was nearly nine years ago when Treasure Valley got 101 and Blue Mountain 112 in February of 2005.

 

Standings: Big Bend 2-0, Spokane 2-0, Treasure Valley 1-0, Walla Walla 1-0, Columbia Basin 1-1, Wenatchee Valley 0-2, Blue Mountain 0-2, Yakima Valley 0-2
