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

Friday Morning Stars

1. Tyshana Burgess, Federal Way, girls basketball. Burgess had a double-double, with 19 points and 12 rebounds, as the Eagles upset No. 5 Auburn Riverside on Thursday night, 62-59.

2. Josh Smith, Kentwood, boys basketball. Smith, the 6-foot-9 junior, had 33 points, and boy, did No. 3 Kentwood need all of them. The Conks trailed by seven in the fourth quarter when Smith was on the bench with foul trouble, but he came back and they escaped with the win. There are so few easy games in the SPSL North, and if you needed any more evidence:

-Kentlake actually led No. 6 Kentridge at the half on Thursday night, before Kentridge escaped with a 68-62 road victory. Kentlake stayed in the game despite a tough night from three-point range (4-for-20).

-At halftime, Auburn Riverside — which almost knocked off Auburn last week — was within four of No. 2 Federal Way, before the Eagles ran away in the second half.

As the top four teams in that division battle it out for the championship, watch out for an upset that could change the whole race.

3. Angela Woods, Edmonds-Woodway, girls basketball. Woods had 25 points to lead 10th-ranked Edmonds-Woodway to a 60-43 victory against Lynnwood.

TONIGHT’S BIG GAME

Bellevue at Mount Si, boys basketball, 8 p.m. The top two teams in KingCo 2A/3A square off, and this will be one of Mount Si’s best opportunities to steal the league championship from the No. 3 Wolverines. A pair of three-point specialists will be on display in Mount Si’s Tanner Riley and Bellevue’s Aaron Bright, who lead the league in three-pointers made. Riley is actually making 57 percent of his three-pointers so far.
