Thursday’s HS boys hoops highlights

I was out at the Sea-King 3A District Tournament Thursday night and watched two very good boys games. Seattle Prep knocked off Lake Washington, 42-40, and Rainier Beach beat O’Dea, 49-47.

All four teams have already secured spots in the regional round of the state playoffs, but both Seattle Prep and Rainier Beach would like to add district titles to their resumes. They play at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at Bellevue College.

I will be back out at the tournament on Saturday.

Here is a look at the rest of Thursday’s high-school hoops action.

KIRKLAND — Zach LaVine scored 32 points and Bothell kept its boys basketball state playoff hopes going with a 65-55 KingCo 4A tournament victory over Roosevelt Thursday night at Juanita High School.

It was LaVine’s sixth game this season with 30 or more points. The 6-foot-3 junior guard averages 23.8.

The defeat eliminated the Roughriders (16-8).

Bothell (15-9), which upset Skyline in the tournament’s first round before being upset by Issaquah, can advance to the regional round of state playoffs with a win next Tuesday. The Cougars will travel to play the No. 3 WesCo representative — Edmonds-Woodway or Lake Stevens — at 7 p.m. on Tuesday.

Lake Stevens and Edmonds-Woodway play a loser-out game Saturday at Jackson High School in the Northwest 4A District tournament.

A.J. Edwards scored 16 to lead Roosevelt in its final game.

Other games

Bellevue Christian 48, King’s 42

At Mountlake Terrace, Bellevue Christian survived a third-quarter meltdown and hung on to beat King’s to reach the championship game of the Tri-District 1A tournament. The Vikings, ranked fifth in the state, face No. 4 Lynden Christian at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Terrace in the tournament final. Lynden Christian beat Seattle Christian 74-58 in the other semifinal.

Bryce Oldham’s 15 points led Bellevue Christian, which led big at halftime before being outscored 20-6 by the Knights in the third quarter. James McCutchen scored 16 for eighth-ranked King’s, which meets No. 7 Seattle Christian at 1:30 p.m. Saturday for third and fourth place.
