SPOKANE, Wash. - Things have changed in the Greater Spokane League when it comes to girls basketball. Where it used to be Lewis & Clark on top and then everyone else, the gap appears to be closing – if not disappearing.

The Tigers struggled to contain Gonzaga Prep's Tia Presley and fell at the hands of the Bullpups 75-71, ceding first place in the GSL.

Presley, a junior at Prep, scored 43 points in a game televised live on SWX-TV. The 5-foot-8 wing did whatever she wanted to do against the porous Bullpup defense. Presley also had 12 rebounds to help her team to an 8-5 record (6-2 GSL).

"Disappointing," told LC coach Jim Redmon to The Spokesman-Review after the game. "We ran a lot of different things at her (Presley). To her credit, she did a great job and got to the rim and got the fouls. She's a handful."

Presley told Greg Lee of the Spokesman that the win was "better than AAU win" she'd ever had.

"My team has been wanting to beat them for so long".

Lewis & Clark lost control of first place in the GSL not only because they lost to Gonzaga Prep, but also because Central Valley beat Ferris. Brandy Johnson scored 10 points for the Bears and pulled down 12 rebounds.
