The Chester High School boys’ basketball team advanced to the Division V semifinals with two playoff wins last week over Weed and Modoc.

Chester, seeded fifth, opened with a 67-44 victory over 12th-seeded Modoc Feb. 23, and then went on the road to upset fourth-seeded Weed 64-57 in overtime last Saturday.

Last Saturday’s game at Weed was postponed from Friday night due to the snowstorm.

Weed outscored Chester 16-14 in the first quarter, 13-11 in the second quarter and 11-10 in the third quarter, but then Chester outscored Weed 15-10 in the fourth quarter to tie the game at the end of regulation.

Chester coach Joe Gilmour said that prior to the fourth quarter, his players began settling on outside shots too much, so he encouraged them to take it to the hoop and attack the rim.

Can hunters sell game for medicinal reasons?

Q. If a person buys a hunting license and a bear tag and goes out and hunts a bear legally, then that bear belongs to that hunter.

If that hunter takes all the usable parts of the bear, then those bear parts belong to that hunter. But if the bear and all of the usable parts belong to the hunter, then why can’t the hunter sell the parts of the bear to other cultures that can use them for medicinal reasons?
