High school basketball keeps rolling for March 6
The playoffs are here across Oregon, and tonight, the state's best girls team will hit the courts in search of glory and eventually, state championships.
With all that happening on Friday, March 6, you just know that Pamplin Media Group's sports editors, reporters and photographers will be out in force to document the action.
Pamplin Media Group continues and builds on its role as a state leader in high school basketball coverage this season, presenting its work more quickly and sharing it more broadly.
We, as a company, are now posting our high school basketball stories and photos to all our websites as soon as possible following each Friday's contests.
And once they're posted, by clicking on the Prep Basketball tab that's now part of each of our websites, visitors will be able to see all the stories and photos posted by our sports reporters and sports editors, not just those particular to their home schools and home towns.
To see the Prep Basketball tab, just hover over the Sports tab at the top of the page.

• No. 17 St. Mary's (16-10 overall) at No. 1 Beaverton (21-4), 7 p.m.
