These guys are college bound, these guys broke records
Teams jockeyed for seeding this past week, while others saw their seasons come to an end. Nonetheless, there were plenty of prime time performances by stat-stuffing prospects across the Northwest region.
On top of all the action on the court which consisted of school records, back-to-back double-double games, 20-plus rebound performances, there were a couple of newsworthy signing announcements too, as a few players went public with their choice of schools to further their basketball careers.
We also posted two excellent recaps from action in Montana where some of the top players were on display. Have a glance at the Rivalry in Great Falls here, and Bozeman’s big win over Billings-Skyview here.
Check out the latest edition of the News and Notes below to get caught up on all the action. And if you missed last week's News and Notes, check it out by clicking here.
