From Capital High School, Kamiah and New Plymouth squared off in the first semi-final game and it was a great one. The fans were in to it and both teams brought out the best in each other.
For New Plymouth, it was the White brothers that were the key to early first half success. The younger of the two, Chase, was hitting outside bombs while the older brother, Carson, was playing great defense.

In the final 4A game of the day from the Borah Sports Complex, Rigby showed why they are a top ranked team in the state.
Rigby is big from the point to the post and their size advantage got even bigger five minutes into the first quarter when Jerome’s big man, Jake Hollifield, went down with an ankle injury.
Initially, Jerome looked like they were going to hang around. Garret Leavitt and Shaquille Kennedy kept . . . → Read More: Rigby ready for the semi-finals
Game #3 at the Idaho Center was a roller coaster ride between Post Falls and Centennial.
It was clear that Post Falls was the more comfortable team at the start. Marcus Colbert showed why Montana State signed him earlier this year. He’s a total floor general with vision and swagger. And running mates Luke Thoreson and Michael Hillman pitched in to keep things balanced.
By halftime, Post Falls had built a 28-16 lead, thanks to . . . → Read More: Colbert keeps Post Falls in it, moves them to the semis
Game 2 at the Idaho Center matched Timberline and Highland. Timberline’s Jack Tate paced the Wolves and showed a few things that we haven’t seen this season. He was scoring off the drive (as expected) but also hitting the 15 footer.
For Highland, Clark Wilkinson and Austin Andreasen led the way for the Rams. Wilkinson, though struggling from the line, was a force in the pain and Andreasen showed athleticism from the guard position.
