A look back at hoops highlights from Tuesday night

Garfield escaped.

Lakes, ranked No. 5 in Class 3A, had the Bulldogs, ranked No. 1 in 4A, on the ropes Tuesday, leading by eight with 3:53 left in the game.

Garfield rallied, forced overtime and then claimed a 71-69 victory over the Lancers.

With time winding down in overtime, Bulldogs standout Tony Wroten Jr. forced a steal that led to two free throws from Tucker Haymond with 0.6 seconds to play that clinched the win.

Wroten finished with a game-high 30 points. Andrew Holloway finished with 20 points for the Lancers, while Isaac Winston scored 15.

Haymond scored 10 for the Bulldogs. If you want more details on the game, click here for a live game blog put together by

With the win, Garfield will stay at No. 1 in 4A. But the Lancers’ performance speaks to the talent in 3A this year. Which leads me to this question: Which school belongs at No. 1 in 3A?

Based purely on talent and depth, my vote stays with Rainier Beach for now.
