Girls: Mount Rainier 61, Inglemoor 56

Brittany McPhee scored 12 of her game-high 28 points in the final six minutes to bring the top-ranked Rams from behind.

Mount Rainier trailed 56-53 with just over two minutes to play, when McPhee scored six straight points – including a hanging, double-clutch bucket in the key, to lead her team back to the semifinals. She also grabbed 15 rebounds.

McPhee’s two free throws with 44.4 seconds left put Mount Rainier up 59-56. The fifth-ranked Vikings (21-3), who trailed by 13 in the second quarter, had two chances to tie, but couldn’t convert. Emily Fiso sealed the victory by making two free throws with 3.3 seconds remaining. The 6-foot sophomore finished with 13 points and eight rebounds.

Mount Rainier (26-1) led by 10 early in the third period, then Julia Haining came to life with 12 of her team-high 19 points. She had back-to-back buckets in the fourth to put Inglemoor up 51-45. But 6-4 Deja’ Strother fouled out with 3:47 to play and the Rams took advantage. Strother was in foul trouble for most of the game and finished with just six points.

Chalayia Fuller had 13 for Inglemoor.
