FaJrview prepares for state tourney 0 BY BILL VANDER WEELIE SIDNEY HERALD The Fairview War- riors will face Manhat- tan Christian in the first round of the Class C state boys basketball tournament in Billings at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday. "I think all eight teams at any state tournament put themselves in a posi- tion to have a chance," Fairview Coach Luke Kloker said. "We have to put three good games together, no doubt." Manhattan Christian is undefeated this season and has placed second at the last two state tourna- ment. "They returned a lot of players from the last two seasons," Kloker said. "I think they are evezT- body's pick to win the title this year. They are undefeated and reaUy haven't had any close games." Fairview's players have competed against Manhattan Christian during the summer. "We know what we're up against," Kloker said. "We feel that we need to play our game." When the Warriors lost to Scobey in the Eastern C championship game, Kloker felt the Warriors needed to play with more patience on the offensive end. "We got in a little too bit of a hurt3: We needed better shot selection and to be more patient," Kloker said. "We need to make the other teams defend us." The coach noted that the team's high expecta- tions set at the beginning MABCH 7-9 Class C state boys basketball tournament in Billings COMPANIES of the season included playing on Saturday night at the state tourna- ment. "That's still our goal," Kloker said. "We're ex- cited about the opportu- nity:" Other first-round games will feature Chinook against Plenty Coups, Scobey against Arlee and Melstone against Hays-Lodgepole. Fairview's second game will be against either Melstone or Hays- Lodgepole on Friday.
