Prairie boys edge Chiawana 61-60

The Chiawana boys basketball team dropped another close game at the North Idaho College Invite, losing to Prairie 61-60 on Wednesday.

Prairie's Ryan Denny went to the line after a foul call on Chiawana as the Falcons attempted a tip-in. He hit both free throws with no time remaining to lift the Falcons over the Riverhawks, who lost 48-45 to Lake City the previous night.

"We should have taken care of the game at the free-throw line," Chiawana coach Chad Herron said. "We missed two 1-and-1s in the last 25 seconds."

Jordan Downing finished with 20 points and seven rebounds for Chiawana, which continues its play at the North Idaho College Invite at 10:30 a.m. today.
