Basketball Takes Center Stage

For how great Washington high school football was this season, it’s finally over. (Tear, tear). But I’m ready to move on. Who’s with me?

So let’s talk about basketball a little bit — a season that should be just as much fun as the football season.

There’s plenty of talent on both the boys and girls side, and perhaps this year Western Washington 4A schools will take home state championships.

I’ll turn it over to you guys: What are some of the story lines you’re already excited about? Players you’re eager to watch? Can’t miss games or Holiday tournaments?

Show your excitement in the comments, basketball fans.

Morning stars

1. Brandon Magee, Bethel, boys basketball. Scored 40 — 40! — points in 74-58 win over Emerald Ridge.

2. Jordan Kidd, Chief Sealth, boys basketball. Good name for a basketball player. He dropped 30 points in Sealth’s 73-37 win over Lakeside.

3. Tony Wroten, Garfield, boys basketball. Get to know this name. The freshman sensation scored a game-high 29 in 85-70 loss to No. 2 Franklin.

Tonight’s top games

1. Meadowdale at Snohomish, girls basketball, 7:30 p.m. Perhaps the two best teams in WesCo square off in an early-season, nonleague contest. The Mavericks are ranked No. 4 in 3A, the Panthers No. 8 in 4A. Should be good!

2. Jackson at Monroe, girls basketball, 7:30 p.m. Season opener for No. 5 Timberwolves of Mill Creek. Monroe, meanwhile, already had the luxury of playing No. 4 Meadowdale.

3. Seattle Prep at West Seattle, girls basketball, 7:30 p.m. After losing season-opener to third-ranked Kentwood (4A), third-ranked Prep (3A) will look to rebound against West Seattle.
