MOUNT VERNON, Wash. — Myleah Musgrave scored 13 points and Tassia Merkle came off the bench for 10, but Yakima Valley was unable to match Skagit Valley in the rebounding column Friday night en route to a 65-53 loss in the Skagit Crossover Tournament.

YVCC men fall to Edmonds in tourney

​Yakima Herald Republic

OLYMPIA, Wash. — Tra Satterwhite broke loose for 34 points but got little support, and Yakima Valley’s defense couldn’t slow down Edmonds as the Yaks suffered a 95-74 loss to the Tritons in the first round of the West Region Crossover men’s basketball tournament Friday.

Satterwhite, a 6-foot-1 freshman from Tacoma’s Lincoln High, made 12 of 23 shots from the field, including 3 of 8 3-pointers, and was 7 of 8 from the line. However, only one other YVCC player, Anthony Robbs with 10 points, reached double figures.

Underwood column: Central finding answers, Yaks still waiting

​Yakima Herald Republic

YAKIMA, Wash. — For Central Washington basketball, both men and women, the season has been a revelation.

For Yakima Valley, both men and women, it’s been — well, to call it an abomination would be perhaps, at this early juncture, unduly harsh.

Then again the YVCC men are 2-7, and when coach Ray Funk says, “Our guys just didn’t show any heart or enthusiasm,” after a one-sided loss last week at Edmonds, you get the idea.

The Yaks women, meanwhile, are 2-5. Both programs missed the NWAC Tournament last season for the first time since 2003, and both teams this season are young even by junior college standards.​
