The Prairie Falcons opened the Coeur d'Alene Inn-vitational against the top-ranked team from Idaho.

“And they played like it, too,” Prairie coach Kyle Brooks said.

Marcus Colbert, who has signed with Montana State, made six 3-pointers and scored 22 points to lead Post Falls to the 32-point victory.

“The first quarter kind of told the story,” Brooks said.

Colbert had 12 of his points in the period as Post Falls jumped out to a 23-6 lead.

Andy Hak led Prairie (5-3) with 9 points. Ryan Denny added eight.

Prairie will face Chiawana of Pasco in the consolation bracket at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.
