King’s Knights

Daylee Hanson’s game-high 12 points led defending 1A champs King’s past Bellevue Christian in an exciting regional match-up with a trip to Yakima on the line. A strong start for the Knights was met with a long rally for the Vikings which extended into the third quarter.

King’s regained the lead late in the third quarter after a technical foul garnered multiple free throws for King’s. The Knights clung to a narrow lead as the end of regulation quickly approached when Bellevue Christian made their move. Nicole Bloch led the charge with 10 points as the Bellevue Christian deficit shrunk. A late turnover by KHS gave the Viks a chance tie the game up. Rachel Berg lofted up a three-pointer to draw the score even, but the ball lodged itself between the rim and backboard which turned the ball back over to King’s and eventually allowed the Knights to hang on for a four point victory.

After the game, Coach Dan Taylor talked about the challenge of defending a state title stating, “We can’t let that sense of fear of losing dictate the way we play.” He also mentioned the need for rest heading into the final weekend of the season by saying, “We’re fatigued from a mental standpoint…we need to work on our execution and just get ready for who our next opponent is.”

SeaKing District Champions – Bellevue Wolverines

The SeaKing district final could potentially be a matchup we see once again before season’s end as undefeated Bellevue faced off against Metro League champs Bishop Blanchet. The Wolverines showed their team speed within the opening moments of the game as Quinessa Caylao-Do started her scoring spree following the opening tip with an outlet score. This sparked a 12-5 run which prompted a Blanchet timeout to talk things over.

The pace remained up-tempo, but Blanchet was able to claw back through contributions of Jadyn Bush and Taylor Chambers who scored 15 and 12 respectively. Bellevue’s leading scorer Shelby Cansler rolled her ankle midway through the second quarter amidst a strong start. The Braves chipped away at the deficit and trailed by three at the break 32-29.

It didn’t take long for the Wolverines to grab hold of the game in the second half when Anna Wilson and Caylao-Do buried a handful of buckets from downtown to drive the lead back up to double digits. The lead continued to grow and Blanchet’s chances of a comeback became less feasible. The final quarter was essentially procedural with Bellevue’s victory at hand to capture the district title and a continued perfect record. After the game, Bellevue’s Shelby Cansler talked about the importance of the win by saying, “It’s a huge statement for us because we didn’t know how we compared to Metro teams playing only KingCo.” When asked about what the Wolverines will be focusing on in the state tourney, Cansler replied, “Rebounding is something we can improve on. But, otherwise, just keep playing the way we play.”

The Final Score
Bellevue 67, Bishop Blanchet 53.

Mercer Island senior Josh Stenberg

The second boys elimination game in the SeaKing playoff bracket pitted Seattle Prep from the Metro League against KingCo’s Mercer Island. The low-scoring, defensive affair presented itself early and continued throughout the ballgame.

The battle in the block between Prep’s Nic Lynch and MI’s Andrew Pickles took center stage in the first half as the posts traded buckets. The Islanders leading scorer Sam Nordale was a big factor on both sides of the floor as Prep had difficulty contending with the senior’s athleticism. At the break, Mercer Island led by one possession 20-17.

The Islanders extended their lead in the third frame through the sharp-shooting of Nordale and Josh Stenberg. Collin Welp and Aaron Nettles led Prep’s battle back in the fourth quarter, but Stenberg buried some clutch buckets down the stretch to secure a win for Mercer Island. Coach Gavin Cree echoed the magnitude of Nordale and Stenberg’s buckets by saying they “hit the shots that were open and so we’re real proud of our guys for doing that. It was a grind of a game.” In regards to their game plan for the Vikings, Cree replied “Against Rainier Beach you want to slow the game down. You don’t want to allow them to have opportunities against transition defense because they can be really effective there.”

The Final Score
Mercer Island 44, Seattle Prep 39.

Lakeside senior Kallin Spiller

In a topsy-turvy elimination game on Friday between Lakeside and Juanita, a late momentum swing sparked by Kallin Spiller and Kimijah King propelled the Lions to a dramatic victory.

Junior Tea Adams carried the bulk of the Rebels offensive production netting a game-high 24 points, many of which scored in transition. Shalexxus Aaron added a dozen as well in addition to a major role in the paint pulling down key rebounds. A three-pointer at the halftime buzzer by Lakeside’s Kelly Keen cut the Juanita lead to a single point heading into the break.

Trailing by six with less than three minutes remaining, the Lions were on the ropes and needed spark. Kallin Spiller buries a critical three point to cut the deficit to one possession. Lakeside followed up the bucket with defensive stops to set up Kimijah King with a pair of buckets to take the lead with less than a minute remaining. Juanita was unable to knock down its contested desperation shot from the corner at the buzzer. The Lions bench sprung from their chairs with excitement after a come-from-behind victory by a single point. Afterward Lions Head Coach Patrick Chinn talked the mentality heading into the game stating, “If we lose, the team is better than us. We’re trying not to beat ourselves. We’re trying to make enough plays to get out of there.”

The win keeps Lakeside alive for another day as they await their matchup for the fifth-place seeding game with the next opponent set to be the winner of Rainier Beach and Roosevelt.

Lakeside 57, Juanita 56.

Timberline Blazers

In the second of two consolation match-ups in the West Central District 3 tourney at Stadium HS on Wednesday night, Timberline and Olympia squared off for the third time this season. Olympia won the first two, but Timberline was able to capture round three which earns the Blazers a berth in the regional round next week.

Oly held a narrow two-point lead at the break with Hunter Sipe finding a rhythm recording 10 of his team-high 15. The size advantage for Timberline was evident early as Jaelen Bush finished at the rim with regularity. Like the first two match-ups in the regular season, Olympia coach John Kiley stated, “This was a classic Olympia/Timberline battle and little things made the difference in the end.”

The Blazers started to take control of the game late in the third quarter when Erik Stevenson fired his team up with emphatic blocks on the defensive end and a three at the horn before the final frame. Needing a late surge, Liam Murphy knocked down a three with a foul for a four point play. However, Jarryn Bush scored tough buckets down the stretch as part of his game-high 21 to pull away and secure a Timberline win. When asked about moving on to regionals again, Bush said, “It feels just as sweet this year now that it’s my senior year.” He added, “All respect goes out to Olympia High School. That is probably the best defense I’ve personally seen.” Bears Coach Kiley talked about his team’s memorable season stating, “From May 31st when I took over the program, the kids bought in completely and I can never thank the seniors enough.” When asked about what he told his team in the locker room, Kiley responded, “I told them two things. I told them that I am extremely proud of them. And I told them that I loved them.”

With the win, Timberline will play Kentridge on Saturday at Mt. Tahoma High School at noon to determine the fifth and sixth seeds from West Central District three. From there, the Blazers play in a must-win game that would advance them to the Tacoma Dome.

The Final Score
Timberline 66, Olympia 56.

The Chargers will play Timberline at noon on Saturday at Mount Tahoma High School to determine the 5th and 6th seeds which advance to the regional round next week.

Ethan Walker led all scorers with 27 points in the contest as the 6’4″ forward knocked down tough shots in the paint and buried 9 of 10 free throws. Yelm found themselves in a double digit hole at the break in which a 4 point second quarter played a role to the slow start. The Tornadoes needed a strong second half.

Trent Lawton scored three from downtown to draw Yelm back within striking distance and Christian Davis continued to pile up his team-high 24 points, but the Ticeson brothers Elijah and Joran put a stamp on the game in the second half. After the game, Ethan Walker stated, “I’m ridiculously excited right now. My team has been working really hard this year and I’m so proud of everybody right now.” When asked about regrouping now that they’ve punched their ticket to state, Walker said, “We’re in state so we’re already charged up.

Metro League Champions – Garfield Bulldogs

Round two of what could be a four game series between Garfield and Rainier Beach took place Friday night for the Metro League championship. Rainier Beach prevailed in the regular season matchup 76-69 at Crawford Court. The defending state champs Garfield were focused on avenging the loss, but the Vikings were eager to win the league title again. Before the game when asked about the key to the game, Rainier Beach head coach Mike Bethea stated, “The one thing I want to see is coming out and playing hard and cutting out the mental mistakes early.”

The Bulldogs took the lead early in the contest as junior guard Daejon Davis was able to finish some acrobatic shots near the cup scoring 9 of his 19 total shots in the first quarter alone. Sam Cunliffe countered by recording 8 of his team-high 23 in the frame taking advantage of some Bulldog defensive breakdowns. As the first half wore on, Garfield’s Jaylen Nowell took control of the contest by scoring at will which propelled his team to a 34-29 lead at the break.

Rainier Beach emerged from the locker room recharged by opening the second half on a 14-4 run to grab the lead and prompting a Bulldog timeout to talk things over. The height of excitement occurred midway through the frame as a wild series of dunks, blocks, and steals lined up back to back. Daejon Davis knocked down a mid-range jumper at the third quarter buzzer to give his team a 51-49 lead heading into the final quarter.

The Bulldogs held a marginal lead into the final minutes of the contest until Keith Smith buried a clutch three late to tie the ballgame at 61 apiece. Garfield struck back to gain the lead for the final time and a Terrell Brown steal put a bow on it. The Bulldogs tie the season series 1-1 and hoist the hardware. Coach Bethea said the rivalry between these teams, “Is basically like going back in time, like a throwback to how it used to be. And that is when basketball is at its best.” The anticipation for the next round is building.
