If you’re looking for a quick updates on the King Holiday Hoopfest at Hec Ed, I’ll post recaps here after every game.

Seattle Prep 71, Federal Way 43

Seattle Prep sophomore Josh Martin excited the crowd with some acrobatic dunks, but he had plenty of help from his teammates in the Panthers’ win over Federal Way.

Martin (12 points, nine rebounds), Mitch Brewe (26 points, seven rebounds) and D.J. Fenner (21 points, 10 rebounds) all finished in double figures for Seattle Prep (12-3), ranked No. 4 in 3A.

Brayon Blake led Federal Way (7-4) with 11 points and six rebounds.

Lakes 73, Garfield 68 (2OT)

Lakes trailed by as many as 28 points in the second half, suffering from what coach JoJo Rodriguez described as “stage fright.”

But the Lancers, ranked No. 10 in 3A, recovered, rallied and the knocked off Garfield in double overtime.

The Lancers (8-6) were led by senior Andrew Holloway, who recovered from a scoreless first half to score 20 points in the second.

“Andrew Holloway has always been in big game,” Rodriguez said. “If you look back, he drives me crazy in the mediocre games, but in the big games, the big moments, that dude always does it.”

Tucker Haymond finished with a game-high 22 points and 12 rebounds for the Bulldogs (9-4), ranked No. 4 in 4A.

Long Beach Poly 64, Rainier Beach 58

Marquis Davis and Anrio Adams combined to scored 30 of Rainier Beach’s 32 second-half point to rally the Vikings, ranked No. 27 in the country by ESPNHS, who trailed by as many as 15 points, against 26th-ranked Long Beach Poly (Calif.).

However, the Jackrabbits (13-1) hung on behind the strong play of Roschon Prince (20 points, eight rebounds) and Jordan Bell (13 points, 13 rebounds, four blocks).

Davis scored 19 of his game-high 24 points in the second half, while Adams finished with 23 points and eight rebounds.

The Vikings cut Long Beach Poly’s lead to four points with 24.7 to play, but that was as close as they would get.

Franklin 72, O’Dea 65

Patrick Ball scored a game-high 18 points to lead No. 7 Franklin past Metro League rival O’Dea.

Anddrew Hawkins finished with 15 points and seven rebounds, while Arell Hennings had 12 points and five assists.

Bothell 71, Jefferson (Ore.) 70

With Pac-12 coaches Ben Howland (UCLA) and Lorenzo Romar (Washington) watching, Bothell standout Zach LaVine showed just how explosive he can be.

The junior scored the final five points of the game, burying a three-pointer in transition with 1.9 seconds to play, rallying the Cougars (8-5) past Jefferson (Ore.)

The Cougars (7-6) trailed by 12 points after one quarter, but LaVine, who finished with 27 points, 11 rebounds, five assists and a couple of highlight-reel dunks in the third quarter, helped rally his team. Perrion Callandret added 19 points for the Cougars.

Washington sophomore Terrence Ross, a Jefferson graduate who had 30 points and 14 rebounds against Washington State Sunday, sat behind the Democrats’ bench and signed autographs in the first half.
