KANAWHA COUNTY, WV -

Entering Thursday's Capital and Riverside boys basketball game, both teams entered the contest only having played six games. Typically, teams would be on game ten, eleven or twelve.

"It's crazy. We never know if we are going to practice, if we are going to play," said Riverside head coach Ryan Carter.

"It's really frustrating. We all want to play games," said Riverside senior Tyus Wood. 

Another problem the Kanawha County Schools face is if there is not school, they aren't allowed to practice. 

The other [county] schools are allowed to practice. It's something that could be detrimental to their health as these kids need to stay healthy," said Capital head coach Carl Clark.

Staying injury free will be key for the Warriors. Next week they will start to make up some of those games they've missed.

"We play Tuesday, Wednesday, Fri and Saturday. We'll be tired, but it's a good test for us.
