That was quite the day of basketball. Thought we could recap some of the results here.
The tournament title game will feature Rainier Beach and Eastside Catholic. The Vikings ran away with a 118-58 win over Franklin, while the Crusaders beat O’Dea 61-55.
That means O’Dea will visit Franklin to battle it out for the No. 3 seed out of the Metro. Seattle Prep and Bainbridge also won, and will play for the No. 5/6 seeds.
Little bit of a shocker out of the KingCo, as Roosevelt beat Bothell, the No. 1 seed out of the Crest Division. Cam Haslam had 32 points for the Roughriders in the win. Roosevelt advances to face Issaquah, who got past Inglemoor.
On the bottom of the bracket, Eastlake (over Ballard) and Garfield (over Redmond) were winners and will face each other. The winner of the semifinals games not only get a chance at the tournament title, but are guaranteed a spot in regionals.
The SPSL played crossover games, to decide district seedings. The No. 1 seeds from the North (No. 3 Kentridge) and South (No. 9 Beamer) gave a matchup of ranked teams.
