Here a sports weekend suggestion

January 19, 2012 

Looking for something to do this weekend?

Here are nine sports things to keep in mind:


Watch a college basketball twinbill, since it’s to cold and snowy outside.

At 5:30 p.m., California plays Washington on ROOT. Then join in progress University of San Francisco at Gonzaga, which started at 7 p.m. on ESPNU.


Start the day by going to the Sportsmen’s Show at TRAC in Pasco when it opens at 1 p.m. (The event also runs Saturday and Sunday). Stroll through the exhibits and just let the outdoors flow over you.

Tickets cost $8 for adults, children ages 6-12 is $4, and kids under the age of 6 are admitted free.

Head to Kamiakin for the 5:45 p.m. girls game to watch the Braves, ranked No. 2 in the state, take on a tough West Valley squad.

Then head over to the Toyota Center for the 7:05 p.m. drop of the puck with the Tri-City Americans and their rival, the Spokane Chiefs.

Now, if you don’t have a ticket — it’s a tough one to get — no worries. Go home and watch the game live on ROOT.


Take in the early matinee, 2 p.m., of the Yakima Valley at Columbia Basin women’s basketball showdown.

YVC is the defending NWAACC champion, while CBC is the top-ranked women’s team in Northwest community college basketball.

Keep an eye on CBC’s Jennifer Noon. The lefty has a smooth shot and she can shoot from anywhere on the court.

At 7:05 p.m., it’s back to the Toyota Center for another monster WHL game. This time it’s the Kamloops Blazers visiting the Americans.


Stay home and watch the AFC and NFC championships as we all look for the Super Bowl finalists.

The Ravens-Patriots game kicks off at noon on CBS, while the Giants-49ers matchup is at 3:30 p.m. on FOX.
