The SPSL 4A boys and girls basketball tournaments run Thursday and Saturday at various sites (Thursday at ShoWare in Kent and Bethel High School; Saturday at Bethel and Auburn Mountainview).
But there are a few ties that need to be broken first, and that’s happening tonight (Tuesday).
On the boys side, there is a three-way tie for fourth place in the South Division. One team will be eliminated. Mini-playoffs (two eight-minute quarters each) are set at Graham-Kapowsin to decide the fourth and fifth seeds. Bethel plays Emerald Ridge at 6 p.m. and the winner will be South No. 4. After a 20-minute break, the loser will play Spanaway Lake. The winner is the No. 5 seed and the loser is out.
For the girls, three full-game tiebreakers are set.
There is a double-header at Beamer to break a pair of South Division ties. Emerald Ridge plays Rogers at 5:30 p.m. for the fourth and fifth seeds, while Bethel and Curtis square off at 7 p.m. to determine first and second.
At Tahoma, Kentlake and Kentridge play at 7 p.m. to break the first-place tie in the Northeast Division.
I hope to be able to post a link to the SPSL bracket when it’s available.
