10 girls games to look for in 2008

As promised yesterday, here’s the list I put together of the 10 girls games I’m looking forward to the most this winter. With a lot of compelling games ahead, it wasn’t easy.

10. Ballard at Inglemoor, Jan. 4, 6:30

9. Newport at Bellevue, Feb. 1, 7:30

8. Snohomish at Lake Stevens, Feb. 4, 7:30

7. Bethel at Puyallup, Jan. 29., 7:30

6. Jackson at Meadowdale, Jan. 16, 7:30

5. Kennedy at Lindbergh, Jan. 22, 7

4. Lakeside at Seattle Prep, Feb. 5, 8

3. Ballard at Roosevelt, Feb. 6, 7:30

2. Issaquah at Bellevue, Feb. 5, 7:30

1. Auburn at Auburn Riverside, Feb. 8, 7:30

These games came from a longer list I compiled of the area’s best games. You can see that list by clicking on either of these links:

Morning stars

1. Kristi Kingma, Jackson, girls basketball. Scored 27 points in a 63-54 victory against Roosevelt.

2. Ryan Snowden, Auburn, boys basketball. Led third-ranked Auburn with 27 points in a 74-54 win in the Harbour Homes Holiday Classic.

3. Karri Gallagher, Lakes Stevens, girls basketball. Scored all of Lake Stevens’ seven overtime points — for a total of 27 — in a big 59-55 win against Moses Lake.

4. Nichole Jones, Rogers, girls basketball. Led the way with 24 points in a 58-46 win against Shelton.

5. Brett Kingma, Jackson, boys basketball. Scored 33 points, the most of the night, but it wasn’t enough for Jackson, which lost by a dozen to Bellevue Christian.

Tonight’s top games

1. Auburn at Decatur, boys basketball, 7:45 p.m. This is the kind of game that makes holiday tournaments great. The No. 3 team in Class 3A plays the No. 3 team in Class 4A, both of them undefeated.

2. Kentwood vs. Issaquah, girls basketball, 3 p.m. at Bothell High School. Another fantastic holiday matchup, pitting the top-ranked 3A team against SPSL North power Kentwood for the Comcast Christmas Classic championship.

3. Kentwood vs. Prarie, boys basketball, 7:45 p.m. at St. Martin’s College in Lacey. They’re playing this time, for real (I listed this game yesterday, but it turns out we had the schedule wrong). And it should still be a close one.
