Raider boys remain undefeated

The Raider boys' basketball team remained undefeated Tuesday night after taking down Tonasket 89-54 on the Tiger home court, the final in-league game for the Raiders in the regular season.

It followed a rousing, deafening game in Coulee Dam against the Liberty Bell Mountain Lions Friday night, where LB gave LR a game and fans on both sides shook the rafters.

The Raiders won by only six points, 72-66, their closest contest of the season.

LR might play LB again Feb. 6 in the District 6 2B Boys Basketball Tournament in Omak.

The Raiders have added a non-league game against Columbia (Burbank) before their postseason play, at Burbank on Feb. 2. Game time is at 6 p.m. The Raiders' bus leaves at noon Friday.

Liberty Bell has to get past Okanogan first on Feb. 2 on LB's home court in the first round of the District 6 tournament. Top-seeded Lake Roosevelt plays the winner Feb. 6 and will play again Feb. 9 in Omak, then head to the District 6/7 Crossover Feb. 17, either at Wenatchee High School or a District 7 site to be determined.
