High school basketball hits the hardwood for Jan. 15 games

With all of Oregon's high school basketball teams now in league play for the 2016 season, Friday's contests mean more than ever. Because of that, Pamplin Media Group will be there in force to cover those games and then share them on the new Prep Basketball tab.

The new Prep Basketball tab on our website — you can see it by hovering over the Sports tab at the top of this web page — will show you high school basketball stories and photos by sports editors, reporters and photographers from 19 newspapers within our company.

Besides all the stories already on the page, there will be more — much more — as we continue coverage of the 2016 season, including features on some of the state's best players, team and league previews for both boys and girls teams, and more.

As the 2015-16 season continues, you can look for same-day coverage of each week's Friday night games from all our company's high school sports editors and reporters. As always, you’ll still be able to find stories about your local high school teams on the regular sports tab of your newspaper's website, but those stories — along with all the others created elsewhere within our company — will also appear on the new Prep Basketball tab.

Our goal here is to provide the best and most comprehensive high school basketball coverage in the state. And because we know that many high school basketball fans are interested in more than just coverage of their local team, this new tab will open the door for readers to see all the high school hoop stories and photos that our sports editors, reporters and photographers create.

This week, our slate of featured high school basketball games will include:
