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

Tuesday night recap: Franklin falls

It’s never easy to go to Bainbridge. It’s never easy to go against a 6-foot-10 center. And it’s never easy to go undefeated.

No Seattle team will go undefeated this season, after Bainbridge and 6-foot-10 center Ben Eisenhardt knocked off Franklin 62-60 last night on the island. Eisenhardt had the big night, and Paul Weese had the big shot. He hit a three-pointer with 6.8 seconds left, and then Bainbridge made an interesting decision.

The Spartans fouled Peyton Siva on the inbounds, making him go to the line down 62-59 (if only Memphis would have done the same with Mario Chalmers in last year’s Final Four). Instead of allowing Franklin the chance to tie, they made the Quakers hit a free throw and then try for a putback. And with Eisenhardt down low, those chances were low. He grabbed the rebound and the game was over.

In other news from around the state:

Decatur sweeps Curtis. Decatur likely clinched the SPSL South with this win, and the Gators went 3-1 against top challengers Curtis and Puyallup in the regular season. Marcus Tibbs stuffed the stat sheet: 18 points, six rebounds, six assists, and five steals.

Shadle Park ties Gonzaga Prep in the GSL. In Spokane, Class 3A No. 3 Shadle Park held off Class 4A No. 6 Gonzaga Prep behind 30 points from WSU signee Anthony Brown. Brown also had three blocks in the final three minutes, and Shadle Park won a night after being upset by Mead.

Columbia River holds off Prairie. This was from Monday, but it was probably one of the biggest Vancouver-area games of the season, so I thought it was worth noting. It was a defensive battle with one offensive note: River guard Kyle Thurston hit a 75-foot heave at the first-half buzzer. Also in Vancouver, Mountain View beat Evergreen in an important Class 4A game. KingCo teams, take note: the third and fourth seeds from KingCo 4A will play the top two GSHL 4A teams for state berths.
