RICHLAND, Wash. -- Friday night SWX is airing its first Tri-Cities boys' basketball game of 2012. Richland will host Chiawana in a Big Nine 4A matchup.
The Bombers are 4-5 overall and just getting started in league play. Richland is on a three-game losing streak. Two of those losses were by two points each. The Bombers struggled from the floor over the streak, but they are confident they can turn things around.
"We really need to establish ourselves inside and score a little more inside and take some better shots. I think all those percentages will improve. I mean sometimes you fight that and this team has fought that shooting bug and I think we'll get it back," said Earl Streufert, Richland head coach.
"We gotta execute on both sides of the floor - offense and defense. Just gotta play our game and score," added Adam Baker, senior guard.
