Portola boys’ basketball
The boys’ team has the heaviest schedule of the four Plumas High Schools planned for this season, with 30 games in the line up.
Head coach Tim Brubaker commented earlier in the season that PHS has a young team and it looks like coach is trying to get the boys as much play time before the season begins as possible. Games parallel the girls’ schedule for the most part and league play begins for the boys Friday, Jan. 19, against Maxwell with the boys’ game starting at 6:30 p.m.
Highlights for the Tiger boys during pre-conference play have been the wins against Ipakanni, North Tahoe, Biggs and PHS rival, Quincy.
