Saturday's 3A boys state basketball tournament roundup
Rainier Beach 61, Seattle Prep 58
TACOMA – Rainier Beach had to withstand a furious fourth-quarter rally from Seattle Prep, but even after star Anrio Adams fouled out with almost two minutes remaining the Vikings managed to hold on, 61-58, to win the 3A championship.
Adams was saddled with foul trouble for the second consecutive night, forcing the Kansas University recruit to sit large chunks of the second and third quarters. He finished the game with just seven points and four rebounds.
Tournament MVP Marquis Davis more than picked up the slack. Davis made 11 of 22 shots, including five 3-pointers, to score a game-high 30 for Rainier Beach.
On the other side, DJ Fenner and Mitch Brewe tried their best to get the Panthers a chance. Fenner scored 26 points and grabbed five rebounds. Brewe scored 19, pulled down 14 rebounds and blocked five shots.
