Tuesday is Purple and Gold time
All Baker hoop fans asked to wear purple and gold for La Grande games
All Baker High School boys and girls basketball fans are being asked to show their support of the Bulldogs by wearing purple and gold Tuesday when Baker hosts La Grande.
The Greater Oregon League championships will be on the line during both varsity games at BHS.
Girls need a win
The Baker girls will be looking to end a two-game GOL losing streak when they host the Tigers.
Baker (6-2 in the GOL) is tied with Ontario for the league lead. However, the Bulldogs own the tie-breaker having defeated Ontario twice this season.
Baker will clinch the GOL crown by defeating La Grande, or having Ontario lose to Mac-Hi.
Baker enters the game having lost at Ontario and Mac-Hi in its last two games. La Grande lost its last game, Friday at Ontario.
Baker has defeated La Grande twice, 55-33 and 46-25, this season.
The Baker boys also need a win to claim the GOL championship.
Baker currently sits in first place with a 7-1 record. La Grande is in second at 6-2.
Baker enters the game on a three-game GOL winning streak. The Bulldogs last loss was at La Grande, 50-45 Jan. 30.
La Grande had a four-game GOL win streak snapped Friday when the Tigers lost 62-59 at Ontario.
If La Grande wins Tuesday the Tigers and Baker would share the GOL title. However, La Grande would gain the league’s number one state berth after beating Baker two of three games.
The girls game will begin at approximately 6 p.m. and the boys at 7:30 p.m. And, don’t forget to wear purple and gold.
