-Scottsbluff girls earned a hard fought 47-45 on the road in the first matchup of the season between these two teams.
-The Scottsbluff girls are currently sitting in 9th in Class B power points despite the record at just 8-8. It’s their brutal schedule that has them still in good position coming down the stretch.

G/B Gering at Sidney…coverage on KNEB AM 960, 100.3 FM, and kneb.com with Jeff Kelley will get underway at approximately 5:15, girls to tip at 5:30.
-Sidney already with a pair of wins over the Gering girls; 69-60 2OT, and 66-61 were the finals from earlier in the season, so clearly Gering has played the Lady Raiders tough.
