Mount Rainier to induct 1971 boys hoops team into HOF

The 1971 Mount Rainier boys basketball team will be the first group inducted into the school’s Hall of Fame and will be honored at halftime of the Rams 7:30 p.m. game against second-ranked Kentridge on Friday.

The 1971 squad was the first state-tournament team in the school’s history in any sport and won the school’s first league basketball title, finishing with a record of 19-6.

The Rams were unranked all year, but scored wins against No. 3 Franklin (76-64), No. 6 South Kitsap (87-47) and No. 7 Nathan Hale (94-62) during the AAA state tournament, now Class 4A.

The team’s only loss at state came against Pasco in the semifinals, 67-62, a game that was decided in a state-record four overtimes.

The Rams finished the state tournament with scoring records for field goals (39) and points (94) in a game and field goals (126) and points (319) over four games. This came in the days before the shot clock and three-pointers.
