The Amateur Athletic Union – or AAU – is often associated with travel teams, money and LaVar Ball. The Spokane Hoops Association is looking to change the negative connotations that usually hang over the league by “continuing to pay attention to what our community wants, and then kind of create programs that meet that,” Spokane Hoops Association Executive Director Matt Santangelo said.

Spokane Indians season ends in Tri-Cities; Dust Devils prevail in 10 innings

UPDATED: Fri., Sept. 6, 2019, 11:21 p.m.

Last year, the Spokane Indians’ season ended on a walk-off balk in the Northwest League Championship Series. This year, it was a walk-off walk in the North Division playoffs. After forcing extra innings with two runs in the top of the ninth inning, the Indians’ Nic Laio issued a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the 10th as the Tri-City Dust Devils came away with a 3-2 victory in Game 3 of the best-of-3 series at Gesa Stadium.
