Some thoughts on the state girls basketball draws

I want to share a few thoughts with you on the state girls basketball draws, particularly 4A and 3A.

We’ll have a lot on the tournaments this week in the newspaper, on the web and in the blog. This is just to get the conversation started.

Class 4A

The quarterfinal game I’m most axious to see: No. 1 Mount Rainier vs. No. 5 Inglemoor.

That’s a tough “opener” for both teams. Earlier this season, the Vikings were ranked as high as No. 3. Coach John Augustavo believes his team is playing as well as anyone and had this to say after drawing the top-ranked Rams: “Bring it on. We’re ready.”

With a little encouragement, he admits he is confident about Inglemoor’s chances this week.

“I think we can win this thing,” he said.

The Vikings will have a size advantage with 6-4 Deja’ Strother and four others 6-foot or better. Mount Rainier’s tallest players are Brittany McPhee and Emily Fiso, both 6-0. Of course, McPhee is a crafty player who finds lots of ways to score against players of all sizes. But this will be a challenge.
