Also, you’ll find out about the confusion behind Renton’s unbeaten season, O’Dea’s big win and Class 4A, 3A and 2A rankings in this edition of TFQ.

Quick hitters

– Renton still undefeated despite confusion: On Friday, Renton played Hazen at Hazen. The Indians entered the game 15-0, and one of the surprises of the night was seeing that Hazen had knocked off top-ranked Renton. Turns out, that wasn’t the case. Somewhere along the way, the score was misreported – or called in incorrectly – that night. Renton, in fact, beat Hazen 57-46 behind 16 points from Jonathan Patterson to remain perfect on the season. Renton coach Rick Comer said he received calls all day Saturday and Sunday in response to the reported outcome, but make no mistake: Renton, the No. 1 team in 2A, still hasn’t lost.

– Win of the week: O’Dea vs. Seattle Prep: The Irish were coming off a loss to then-third ranked Rainier Beach on Saturday and faced a daunting turnaround by playing then-No. 2 Seattle Prep on Tuesday. But the Irish more than stood up to the test, handing the Panthers their first in-state loss of the season, 58-56. After the Beach game, O’Dea coach Al Hairston said his hadn’t held up well in the second quarter all season. Against Prep, the Irish outscored the Panthers by two in the second quarter en route to a 12-point halftime lead. That proved just a big enough margin in the end. Guard Tyler Kidd led the way with 19 points, Jamie Orme added 14 and Jacob Lampkin had 11. The Irish are 8-8 overall and 7-5 in league play.

– Mount Si gets another crack at Mercer Island: It’s been a strange couple of weeks for Mount Si. Two Fridays ago, Mount Si was coming off an eight-point loss to 2A Lake Washington. Now, Mount Si (11-5) is coming off two straight wins against Bellevue. The Wildcats have won three straight games since losing to Lake Washington, and Trent Riley has led them in scoring in each game. He is averaging 19 points in his last three and will need another big outing on Tuesday, when Mount Si gets another crack at No. 3 Mercer Island (15-1). The Wildcats lost by eight when they played the Islanders earlier in the year. Riley had 26 in the first meeting, but no other Wildcat had more than five.

– Keep an eye on…Eastside Catholic: The Crusaders have won five straight games since losing to Rainier Beach by 15, including an upset win against then-No. 6 O’Dea. Eastside Catholic was a team many Metro coaches highlighted as a big-time sleeper before the season started, and for good reason. The Crusaders are a balanced group, with Austin Soukup (13.9), Mandrell Worthy (14.2) and Max Hudgins (10.3) all having explosive games at different times this year. Eastside Catholic closes out the year with two big games in a row: Against Franklin on Tuesday and then at O’Dea on Friday.

Games of the week (excluding games on Monday)

– Garfield at Bothell, Tuesday, Jan. 22: A showdown of No. 1 Bothell (15-0) and No. 2 Garfield (13-1) could be the best non-tournament game of the regular season. This one has been on a collision course all season and it comes just a day after both teams play in highly competitive games on Monday (Bothell plays Rainier Beach and Garfield plays Franklin). Bothell is led by the trio of Zach LaVine, Perrion Callandret and Josh Martin. Garfield is led by the duo of Tucker Haymond and Trevaunte’ Williams.

– Mountlake Terrace at Shorewood, Friday, Jan. 25: In all likelihood, this game will decide the WesCo 3A South winner. The two schools are both currently 8-1 in league play, but Mountlake (13-2) Terrace holds the edge because the Hawks beat Shorewood (13-3) by 13 more than a month ago. But Shorewood has won 10 straight games since. Mountlake Terrace is one of the area’s most balanced teams while Shorewood features 6-foot-9 Washington State commit Josh Hawkinson.
