Carey hosts Northside girls hoops Saturday

State champ Richfield earns top seed

The seedings are set for the 2010 Northside Conference prep girls' basketball tournament debuting Saturday, Feb. 6 at Carey High School gym.

Defending conference and State 1A Division 2 champion Richfield (18-2, 8-2) earned the top seed via three-way coin flip Wednesday after the host Tigers defeated Dietrich 43-28.

Seeded second is Dietrich (16-4, 8-2) while Carey (13-5, 8-2) is ranked third. That's exactly the 1-2-3 finish of last year's state tournament and also the 2009 league tourney at Dietrich.

Host Carey opens the tourney Saturday with a 7:30 p.m. game against sixth-seeded Bliss, preceded by fourth-seeded Camas County (10-8, 4-6) against fifth-seeded Community School (3-10, 1-9) at 6 p.m.

Richfield plays the winner of Camas-TCS at 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 8, followed at 7:30 p.m. by Dietrich against the winner of Carey-Bliss. The varsity championship game is set for Wednesday, Feb. 10 at 7:30 p.m.

The Northside Conference's second and final automatic State 1A Division 2 berth will be settled Thursday, Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. in the second-place game.

The Northside gets an additional half state berth this year, meaning the third-place finisher Thursday must win a play-in game against the Boise-area runner-up Saturday, Feb. 13 at 1 p.m. at Glenns Ferry to advance to the eight-team State 1A Division 2 tourney Feb. 18-20 at Nampa High School.
