Despite school being canceled in the Tri-Cities, the District 8 4A and 3A basketball tournament will be played Friday.
Athletic directors from both the Mid-Columbia Conference and the Greater Spokane League — in consultation and approval from their school boards — decided to go ahead with the games following all the weather delays this week.
Some of the game times for Friday have been changed, including one being moved up to 3:30 p.m.
The tournament is set to continue Saturday with eight games in the Spokane Arena, and a few others at various other sites.
