Kentridge 67, Sumner 39
Joran Ticeson scored 12 of his 15 points in the first half and rested most of the second as the Chargers (13-2), ranked No. 8 in 4A, prepped for a four-game week. Deon Thomas put together a nice all-around game with 10 points, seven rebounds, four assists and three steals and Kentridge shot 53.2 percent as a team.
Sumner (8-6) got 10 points from Tyson Birrer and Riley Bruil, last year’s co-MVP in SPSL 2A, saw his first minutes since spraining an ankle in the second game of the season and chipped in a basket, two assists and two steals.
King’s 55, Auburn Mountainview 36
Sophomore Corey Kispert led a balanced attack for the Knights (11-2), who were up just 27-25 early in the third quarter before pulling away. The 6-5 Kispert just missed a double-double with 14 points and nine rebounds, chipping in three assists and three steals as well. Noah Bundrant added 11 points, eight rebounds and three blocks and three others scored seven or more for the No. 2 team in Class 1A.
Ryan Lacey paced Mountainview (11-3) with 10 points and nine rebounds.
Mark Morris 67, Tahoma 38
After leading just 12-8 at the end of the opening period, Mark Morris motored away for a 35-16 halftime advantage and never looked back. The Monarchs (12-1), rated No. 1in 2A, landed four players in double-figures: Spencer Sweet (18), Grant Gibb (14), Evan Troy (14) and Nick Rinck (11). Tahoma (5-10), which rested key players heading into a big week of SPSL 4A play, had no one with more than seven points.
Kentwood 65, Enumclaw 51
A “hangover” lingered from Friday’s loss to top-ranked Federal Way, according to Kentwood coach Blake Solomon, but he was determined to find five guys willing to play hard. Once up 20-7, the Conquerors — rated No. 5 in 4A — saw Zac Webb key a 20-5 run with 16 of his game-high 20 points. It was 45-41 with just under six minutes to play before Kentwood (13-2) resumed control. Darius Lubom finished with a team-best 12 points. Enumclaw (5-9) got 12 from Scotty Garvin.
Kentlake 64, Lakes 42
Carson Stowell dropped in 5 of 9 3-pointers en route to a game-high 23 points and teammate Julion Mackey was good for 18 more for the Falcons (10-5), who pulled away in the final quarter after leading by just nine late in the third. Lakes (2-12) was led by Rakeem Hughey (14) and Nic Seay (11).
