I was out at Skyline Tuesday night, watching the third-ranked Spartans hold off No. 4 Redmond, 60-56.
I continue to be impressed by Skyline point guard Will Parker, who scored 23 and hit some big free throws late. Redmond’s Jason Harrington also had a great game, a big third quarter.
Here is a look back at the rest of the boys high-school basketball action from Tuesday night:
Snohomish guard lights it up
SNOHOMISH — Snohomish guard Luke Hamlin scored a season-high 43 points, helping the fifth-ranked Panthers get past Monroe 72-67 in a WesCo boys basketball game Tuesday night.
Hamlin, a senior, hit six three-pointers and had 11 rebounds for Snohomish (13-2 overall, 9-1 league), which leads the North Division.
He topped his previous season high of 36 points in a December win over Arlington. It was Hamlin’s fourth game this season with 30 or more points.
