Prescott High School girls' basketball team will be the lone county team to host a home game next Tuesday in the first round of regional tournament play.

The Cardinals have the highest seed of all the county teams. PHS (8-12) got a No. 2 seed in the Division 3 Somerset Regional. They will host Webster (7-13) with the tip-off time set for 7:30 p.m. If Prescott wins they will take on either St. Croix Falls (11-8) or Grantsburg (5-15) at home Thursday.

In the same regional, Spring Valley (4-17), the No. 8 seed, is at St. Croix Central (11-8). The winner plays either Clear Lake (8-13) or Glenwood City (5-14).

A pair of losses help sink Ellsworth's chance of hosting a home game for the first time in eight years. Instead the Panthers (12-9) are the No.5 seed in the Spring Valley Regional and will play at No. 4 seeded Altoona (12-8). The winner takes on the No. 1 seed Rice Lake (16-5) at Rice Lake.

Both Pierce County teams in the Division 4 Durand Regional are on the road and will be for the duration of the tournament. No. 8 seed Plum City (0-17) is at No. 1 seed Eleva-Strum (13-7) and No. 7 seed Elmwood (3-14) is at No. 2 seed Chippewa Falls McDonell (9-11). The other pairings have No. 5 New Auburn (10-9) and No. 4 Gilmanton (11-9) and No. 6 Eau Claire Immanuel Lutheran (8-10) is at No. 3 Alma-Pepin (12-6).

The regular season for girls basketball wraps-up this week. Boys' basketball regional play begins Tuesday.
