Prep hoops roundup

MANSON — By virtue of its 77-41 victory at Manson on Thursday, the Brewster boys basketball team secured the No. 2 seed from the Central Washington League’s North Division, finally breaking a three-team logjam. The Bears, who had four double-digit scorers in its win over the Trojans, will play Kittitas, the CWL South’s No. 3 seed, at 5:30 p.m. Monday at Eastmont High School to begin the postseason.

Hull reaches 400 wins

PATEROS — Pateros boys basketball coach Mike Hull recently joined a very small, very elite group when he recorded his 400th career coaching win in late January. Hull reached the milestone in a 57-14 victory at Liberty Bell on Jan. 25.

Prep basketball roundup

LAKE ROOSEVELT — The Lake Roosevelt boys played inspired basketball against Oroville on Tuesday night even though the Raiders clinched the North Central Washington League’s North Division title last week. The contest marked the final home game for the Raiders’ seniors. It also came a day after the school’s principal, Steve Breeze, passed away.

Ephrata’s bid for first win falls short

EPHRATA — The Ephrata boys basketball team’s bid for its first win of the season in its last game of the year fell inches short on Friday. Zach Allen’s three-quarters-court shot hit the rim and bounced away at the final buzzer, giving Othello a 59-57 victory over the Tigers. Ephrata finished the season with an 0-20 record a year after advancing to the Class 2A state tournament.

COULEE DAM — The Lake Roosevelt Raiders’ take over of the Central Washington League North Division is official. The Raider boys handed Brewster a 73-50 defeat on Tuesday night, improving to 9-0 in league play and locking up at least a share of the North Division title with three games to go.

Prep roundup: Brewster boys win defensive battle with Pateros

BREWSTER — Friday’s contest between the Pateros and Brewster boys basketball teams had a playoff-type atmosphere, according to Bears coach Dwight Plugrath. That’s not surprising, considering the Billygoats entered the game in second place in the Central Washington League North, and the Bears were in third.

B basketball roundup

MANSON — Manson boys basketball coach Jeremy Crollard constantly reminds his team of his three keys to winning games: not turning the ball over, making free throws, and rebounding. The Trojans didn’t fare well in any of those categories during their 62-57 loss to Oroville on Tuesday in CWL North action.

Trophy contenders from the region

Here is The World’s glance at high school basketball teams from NCW that have the potential to come up with a trophy from their state tournament:

Midseason report card for NCW prep basketball

The big guns are gone, several leagues are dominated by one or two teams, and even the number of ranked teams has dwinded to a couple. High school basketball in North Central Washington is lacking in firepower this season.

Prep hoops recap

QUINCY — Both Quincy basketball teams had a chance to tie Grandview in the final minutes of their games Saturday night. Instead, both teams were on the losing ends of 51-47 scores.

Entiat girls pull into second place

ENTIAT — Riverside Christian roared back in the fourth quarter Friday, outscoring Entiat 21-7. Fortunately for the Tigers, they’d built an enormous lead over the first three quarters and held on for the 63-49 victory. The Tigers were able to pull ahead by clamping down on Kendra Stamates in the first half.

Prep roundup: Goats climb into tie for 1st

CHELAN — Chelan outscored Cashmere 9-0 in the final two minutes of the first quarter, part of an 11-0 run from which the Bulldogs could never recover in a 66-50 Chelan win. With the victory the Goats move into a first-place tie with Cascade at 3-0 in Caribou Trail League play.

CTL’s first week ends with a bang

The wild and woolly Caribou Trail League is back, and with a vengeance. The first week of league play was capped off Saturday night, with three games decided by five points or less, and a surprise or two thrown into the mix.
