Pine River and Evart will return to action this Friday with key Highland Conference boys basketball tests. Pine River, 4-0, is at Marion Friday night. Last Friday at home, the Bucks scrimmaged Reed City and Tri County.
“Against Reed City, I thought we played well in the first part,” said Pine River coach Brian Goodenow. “Reed City is not a bad team. They didn’t have the size to match up with Lincoln (Erickson). Against Tri County, we didn’t play good. They were getting a lot of good outside shots. We didn’t challenge the open shot.”
