MONDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2019

The local high school football season came to an end for every Basin area team but one in the first round of the OSAA playoffs this weekend.

The Dalles ended Henley’s season, beating the Hornets 49-18 Friday night.  Hosanna Christian, though won their game Friday night hosting North Douglas.

Saturday, Mazama lost to Tillamook at home 19-14, Crane blasted Triad 60-6, and Lost River dropped a 62-32 game at Toledo.

Hosanna will make the long trip to Adrian to play the Antelopes in the mountain time zone this Saturday afternoon.

Blazers pick up a win.  It took a lot longer than they would have liked, but the Portland Trail Blazers finally got their first game in the winner’s column at home this season.

After dropping their first three games at home for just the second time in franchise history, the Trail Blazers needed overtime in their fourth attempt to get the win, but eventually came away with a 124-113 victory versus the Atlanta Hawks in front of a sellout crowd of 20,041 Sunday night at the Moda Center.

The Trail Blazers are now 4-6 overall and 1-3 at home this season. The win ends a four-game losing streak for Portland and is their fourth straight victory versus Atlanta. It is also the Trail Blazers’ first victory versus an Eastern Conference opponent this season.

With their first home win in the books, the Trail Blazers hit the road yet again for a quick trip to Sacramento to play the Kings for the second time in two weeks at Golden1 Arena. Tipoff is scheduled for Tuesday at 7 p.m.

Molly Danielson led the Wildcats of Linfield College to an 89-75 victory over No. 21 ranked Oregon Tech  with a 28-point 14-rebound double-double Sunday night at Ted Wilson Gym in McMinnville.

The Lady Owls seemed to have the game in the first, passing Linfield early on with a 13-4 run to end the period on a 22-16 advantage. However, the Wildcats took control in the second, going 10-for-2 to close the quarter at a three-point advantage over Tech.
 
Linfield College pulled even further ahead in the third stanza, boosting up their defense to hold the Owls to only five points and scoring 19 of their own.

The Lady Owls will return to Klamath Falls for the Lithia-Oregon Tech Classic next weekend, facing off against UC Merced on Friday and Simpson University on Saturday, with both games taking place at 5:30pm at Danny Miles Court.

Don’t tell the Oregon Women’s Basketball team there’s nothing on the line in an exhibition game.

In fact, don’t tell the Ducks anything. Because they just might turn around and use it to beat you. Even if you’re the latest iteration of arguably the greatest dynasty in the history of organized team sports.

The top-ranked team in women’s college basketball beat the best team in the entire world Saturday evening. Sabrina Ionescu and the UO women’s basketball team hosted an exhibition against the United States women’s national team before 11,530 fans in Matthew Knight Arena, and won, 93-86.

It had been 20 years since a college team last beat Team USA. The Ducks’ fellow Pac-12 preseason favorites, Stanford and Oregon State, had chances earlier this month and couldn’t do what the Ducks did. Nor could Texas A&M, earlier this week.
