The Salish Kootenai College women’s basketball team is working on getting prepared for the second half of their tribal schedule and to make another run at the American Indian Higher Education Consortium basketball tournament.
According to coach Silas Perez, the first half of this year’s schedule is the “most challenging” schedule the team has ever had to play.
“The first half of the schedule is a very challenging for us,” Perez said. “I see the women making progress and getting a lot better towards the second half of the season. Making the transition (in the second part of the season) won’t be quite as tough.”
Last year the Lady Bison captured the AIHEC title after defeating Stone Child.
They will look to win back-to-back titles.
