The latest news and analysis on high-school sports around the Seattle area

Got a basketball jones?

It doesn’t get much busier than this in high-school sports. We’ve got swimming finals this weekend (I had a swimming story today), the state girls soccer tournament begins tonight, the volleyball tournament is this weekend, and the round of 16 in football is about to get started.

And right on the horizon: basketball. If you go to Score-it, our schedule and statistics program, you can see the November calender already peppered with games at the end of the month. And if you’re as big a basketball fan as I am, that’s got to be exciting.

We had a basketball story in the paper today, on 6-foot-8 forward DeAngelo Casto transferring back to Ferris. He had transferred to Franklin from Ferris in the summer, but he decided to head back. The principal of Ferris told the Spokane Spokesman-Review that there could be “eligibility issues” with Casto transferring back and forth. Casto was one, but not the only, reason Rivals.com ranked Franklin 32nd in the country going into the season.

So what’s on you mind, basketball fans? It’s going to be a busy fall postseason, so we might not get back to basketball until the end of the month. So take advantage of your chance to be heard.

Tonight’s top games (girls soccer edition)

1. Olympia at Eastlake, 7 p.m. The undefeated Wolves, KingCo 4A champs, are without top goal-scorer Kory Spotts, who suffered a broken ankle in the conference championship game.

2. Lakeside vs. Olympic, 7 p.m. at Southwest Athletic Complex. Lakeside won the Metro League. Can it keep its undefeated season going in the first round?

3. Columbia River at Issaquah, 7 p.m. For Issaquah, the defending 3A champ, this will be its only home game of the tournament. But having only one home game didn’t stop Issaquah from going to the championship game in 2005, or winning it in 2004.
