THOMAS — For the second time in as many nights the Snake River Lady Panthers took to the hard wood looking to knock off a Mountain Rivers Conference foe. It wasn't the prettiest of affairs but in the end, Snake River were able to accomplish just that as they defended their home court with a 42-36 win over Teton.
"Everything about this game that was ugly was about us," Snake River head coach Rich Dunn said. "It wasn't anything that Teton did which got us out of our game and maybe it was because for the first time this year we played on back-to-back nights. I was happy to see us come out after half time and play a little bit more like ourselves though."

Cold shooting night dooms Broncos

December 13, 2012

BLACKFOOT — The Blackfoot Broncos hosted the Hillcrest Knights on the basketball court Wednesday evening looking to even the season series on their home court. Unfortunately, the Knights were not cooperating in that plan as they turned in a big second quarter to take a double-digit lead that they never relinquished in the 64-45 downing of the Broncos.
"Basketball is a game of runs," Blackfoot head coach Dan Hale said. "When you don't stop their run and then don't go on a run of your own it makes it very difficult to win basketball games. Hillcrest are a good team though. You can't take anything away from them."
