Some girls basketball highlights from Tuesday night

The Federal Way Eagles showed once again why they should be the top-ranked Class 4A girls basketball team in the state, blowing out Emerald Ridge of Puyallup Tuesday night, 92-55.

ER now owes both if its losses to Federal Way, but this one wasn’t nearly as close as the first meeting, when the Jaguars managed to stay within nine.

Five players scored in double figures for the Eagles — Raven Benton (18), Talia Walton (17), Darah Huertas-Vining (15), Dyesha Bellhumeur (12) and Ty Burgess (10). And Jaleecia Roland, back in action after solving some health issues that kept her out the first half of the season (and the last half of last season), added nine points. That’s some kind of balance.

Jadea Brundidge led ER with 10. Taylor Buie, who came in averaging better than 22 points per game, was held to a season-low nine points after scoring 24 the first time the two teams played.

Here are highlights from some of the other Tuesday girls games:

Mount Rainier 59, Tahoma 50

Tahoma’s Katie Buskey matched her season high with 32 points, but it wasn’t enough. She also came up with five rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks.
