Tuesday night’s high-school hoops highlights

Here is a look back at Tuesday’s high-school basketball action:

Sophomore guard Anrio Adams scored a season-high 28 points and Franklin shot .529 from the field in the first half on the way to an 86-66 boys basketball rout of fifth-ranked Seattle Prep Tuesday night.

The Quakers hit 18 of 34 shots as they raced to a 51-34 halftime lead.

Adams, a 5-foot-10 guard who missed Franklin’s last game because of the flu, also had seven rebounds. Juwuan Buchanan, a 6-4 post, dominated inside with 15 points, 16 rebounds and eight blocks for Franklin.

The victory clinched the Metro League Valley Division title for the Quakers (8-9, 8-4). The defending Class 3A state champions were coming off consecutive losses to Rainier Beach, Bainbridge and Chief Sealth that had dropped their record under .500.

Seattle Prep (14-4, 12-2) had an eight-game winning streak snapped. The Panthers had not lost since Dec. 29, to 4A Bellarmine Prep of Tacoma. D.J. Fenner, a 6-5 freshman, scored 27 points for Seattle Prep, which had previously clinched the Metro Mountain crown.
