What to watch this week includes prep hoops, CBC baseball

Former Kamiakin quarterback Michael Reilly showed NFL scouts a thing or two at this week's NFL Combine in Indianapolis.

Reilly, who finished an outstanding collegiate career at Central Washington University, was tops among all 21 quarterbacks in the three-cone drill, second in the 20-yard shuttle, and sixth in the broad jump.

Let's see if that relates to a mid-level selection by some NFL team in April's draft.

Meanwhile, here are some things to keep an eye out for this week in sports:

Thursday -- Arizona State visits Washington in a key battle for the Pac-10 Conference men's basketball title. Tipoff is at 8 p.m. on FSN.

Friday-Saturday -- The Toyota Center is the hub of high school basketball this weekend with the Conagra Foods Lamb Weston regional tournament. Sixteen teams -- eight boys and eight girls -- will play 16 games on two courts over the two days. First games start at 4 p.m. Friday.

Saturday -- Chemeketa visits Columbia Basin at 11 a.m. for a season-opening baseball doubleheader, as former WSU head coach Steve Farrington makes his debut as the Hawks' new head coach.

Saturday -- The Tri-Cities Fever gets its 2009 af2 season going with its first practice. The team opens its season March 20 at Central Valley.

Sunday -- Check the people who get off of the planes at the Tri-Cities Airport on both Sunday and Monday nights. They'll be wearing NASCAR hats, shirts and coats, and just returning from the Las Vegas Sprint Cup race. Watch it on FOX at 12:30 p.m.
