The Lakers are scheduled to host Pershing County on Friday, girls at 6 p.m. and boys at 7:30. North Tahoe will then travel to Battle Mountain the next day.
The North Tahoe basketball teams learned first hand the potential of rival Incline on Friday.
The girls fell by a score of 40-15 and the boys by a final of 73-38.
“We got our butts kicked,” said North Tahoe boys coach Frank Wright. “Incline is a very good team with some extremely talented athletes.”
The host Highlanders didn’t waste any time jumping on the Laker boys. They led 22-7 after the first quarter and 44-12 by the half.
“Everything that could go wrong went wrong,” said Wright, adding that Incline senior guard Orin Porter played “off the charts.”
Stats were not available for either team.
North Tahoe is now 3-3 in Division III play and Incline 6-2.

Using their aggressive full-court press, Incline’s girls took control with a dominant first half.
The Highlanders held the Lakers to just a single point in each of the first two quarters and carried a 20-2 lead into the half.
Incline junior Molly Franklin scored a game-high 21 points as first-place Incline improved to 7-0 in league and 16-1 overall. North Tahoe dropped to 1-4 in league.
