The Lady Indians open the new year with their first conference games of the season. They host Pocatello tonight, Wednesday, Jan 5 at 7:30 p.m. and travel to Century on Tuesday, Jan 11, also at 7:30 p.m. They are hoping to break a four-game losing streak that includes recent losses to Highland (30-36) and to Star Valley (27-32).
Preston hopes to have Hailey Meek back from injury which could give them that extra edge they have been missing. If so, it will be just in time as Pocatello has a similar record and results against common opponents, though Preston did fare much better against Blackfoot than Pocatello did.
On paper, the Indians should beat Century but the Diamondbacks will bring their best game to the court and could surprise Preston. Conference wins are rarely a certainty.
