New Year’s Eve Morning Stars

1. Michael Hale III, Federal Way, boys basketball. Hale III, the point guard for Federal Way, scored 30 points to lead the Eagles to an 84-50 win against Estrella Foothills of Arizona. Federal Way went 3-0 in the Arizona Basketball Challenge.

2. Marcus Tibbs, Decatur, boys basketball. Tibbs not only scored 25 points, but he had 10 assists and eight rebounds. He made some 3-pointers from extremely long range — we’re talking 30 feet — and he set up his teammates for some easy baskets. Decatur showed, with its 73-66 win against Foss, it’s for real. And Tibbs’ return this season is the reason.

3. Melissa Gilkey, Woodinville, girls basketball. In the Cactus Jam tournament in Phoenix, Gilkey went 21-34 over the course of three games and had 54 points and 24 rebounds to help the Falcons win the entire tournament. In the championship, Woodinville beat Elgin Park of British Columbia, the top-ranked B.C. team that had a 15-0 record before the game.
