KingCo 4A | Argens powers Roughriders

Special to The Seattle Times

WOODINVILLE — This time, Mackenzie Argens proved best.

The Roosevelt High School standout and University of Washington signee earned that status in a dominating performance against Woodinville and Amanda Best Wednesday night.

The 6-foot-3 Argens had 21 points and nine rebounds as the Roughriders won 51-36 in a KingCo 4A girls basketball game at Woodinville High School.

Argens ruled the paint and even limited Best with her defense outside the three-point line as sixth-ranked Roosevelt (6-0 overall, 4-0 KingCo) gained early control of the Mountain Division race.

"I was excited and pumped up about guarding [Best] and I think I did a pretty good job on her," said Argens, who has great agility for an inside player. "She's just a really good player. On her drives, I think she got frustrated after a while.

"My whole team was there to help. Together, we were on her."

Best, a 6-foot senior who will play at New Mexico next season, struggled with a poor shooting night and finished with 11 points, 8.8 below her season average.

Ashley Tuiasosopo led the Falcons with 12 points.

"We put Mackenzie on Best and hoped to contain Tui," Roosevelt coach Bill Resler said. "I think it worked fine. We held them to 36 points. We wanted to be in front of them [defensively] and make them earn their baskets."

Best was scoreless in the second half before getting five points in the final 4:10.

Resler pointed to Argens' defense as a key factor.

"[Best] is a money player, but Mackenzie's a load and she's quick," Resler said. "Mackenzie moves well for a girl her size and she's got condor arms. Plus, she's really smart."

The Roughriders snapped a three-game losing streak against Woodinville (3-2, 2-2). Roosevelt's last win over the Falcons was an 80-53 decision on Jan. 21, 2004. Woodinville won the only meeting between the teams last year, 68-66.
