Odds and ends to start 2008

The schedule gets pretty hectic after tonight, when area basketball teams resume conference schedules and make their push toward state. So now’s a good time to fill you in with some links and area leaders as 2008 gets started:

-The Varsity News has put together its top five football plays of 2007. My favorite: No. 3, an acrobatic run by all-state running back Marcel Smith.

-Speaking of big football plays, Rivals.com listed its amazing performances nationwide from 2007, and O’Dea senior Johri Fogerson’s 297-yard game in the Class 3A title game made the list.

-Lakes tight end Kavario Middleton is a second-team all-American, according to USA Today.

-Also in USA Today, Skyline finished the season 21st in the nationwide Super 25.

-According to Rivals.com, Franklin junior guard Peyton Siva currently likes these four schools: Kansas, Arizona, Louisville and Washington.

These are the area scoring leaders right now, according to stats called into The Seattle Times:

Girls

1. Kimi Pohlman, Bear Creak, 25.6 ppg

2. Kristi Kingma, Jackson, 25 ppg

3. Kati Grad, Auburn Riverside, 22.7 ppg

4. Eryn Jones, Meadowdale, 22.3 ppg

5. Angela Woods, Shoreline Christian, 21.3 ppg

Boys

1. Jordan Smith, Lopez, 34.0 ppg

2. Jordan Nicholes, Sultan, 28.5 ppg

3. Jordan Kidd, Chief Sealth, 24.5 ppg

4. Brandon MaGee, Bethel, 24.2 ppg

5. Alfie Miller, Mount Rainier, 23.7 ppg

Good year to be named Jordan.

Tonight’s top games

Mercer Island at Skyline, boys basketball, 7:30 p.m. In Skyline’s fourth-place finish at the Comcast Christmas Classic, it was evident this is a much-improved team. But have the Spartans improved enough to beat MI?

Bellevue at Newport, girls basketball, 7:30 p.m. Neither one of these teams wants to fall too far behind top-ranked Issaquah in KingCo 3A.
