Notes: White River won the regular-season 2A SPSL title, its eighth consecutive league title. ... Coach Gibson is one win away from 375 career victories, coaching the 14 seasons at White River and eight seasons at Franklin Pierce. ... Defense and quickness are the strengths of the Hornets. ... The Mustangs continue to roll right along, having won 10 consecutive games with the easy victory against Ephrata last Friday. ... Sophomore Mercer scored a game-high 20 points to lead Prosser past Ephrata. ... This matchup should provide for some intrigue under the basket, as the heighth of the Hornets against the sheer talent of Prosser's Jones will make for some good theater.
