Area basketball coaches have suffered through a long winter with postponed games because of the weather. Wednesday was no different.
With snow falling and freezing rain expected, the 4A and 3A subregional boys and girls basketball games between the Mid-Columbia Conference and Greater Spokane League were moved to Thursday.
All games will remain at the same venue and same time.
The boys 4A games include Chiawana at Ferris at 6 p.m.; Lewis and Clark at Richland at 5 p.m.; Central Valley travels to Walla Walla at 5 p.m.; and Hanford is at Gonzaga Prep at 7:15 p.m.
