Coos Bay is off to a RED HOT start! Majority of the 16 games was fairly competitive and this only means Final Four will be just as spicy!
#1 Banks defeat #9 Lakeview in a heartbreaking buzzer beater by Madison Walker 36-34
#5 Santiam Christian defeats Amity 36-35. Like I said previously it’s hard beating a team 3 times in one season but hats off to both teams. SC advances!
#3 Corbett defeats #6 Nyssa 47-41. With Corbett win, this means their will be a new team crowned State Champs on Saturday Night.
#2 Sutherlin defeat # 7 Pleasant Hill 52-34. Reigning State Player of The Year Micah Wicks 22 points 4asts 5stls.
One of my two predictions thus far was all three Lewis & Clark teams would advance to the Final Four. I got this one correct!
#5 OES defeats #4 Banks 61-47. Second half surge by OES was too much for Banks to overcome.
#1 Westside Christian defeats #8 Pleasant Hill 72-56. Ethan Chiong scored a game high 25 points
#6 Cascade Christian defeats #3 Dayton 65-48. Far West League POY Drew Hall scored a game high 27 points 7 assists
#2 De La Salle defeats #7 Creswell 63-51. The knights depth was key and Creswell seemed to run out of gas.
Final Four Thoughts!
No prediction for any games from me! These 8 games will be entertaining to say the least. My advice is for everyone in Coos Bay (even the locals) should go watch and support high school basketball. These games will be worth the price of admission.
