The only local boys team still in the postseason-basketball picture had a big win last night: Seattle Lutheran High School senior Bryce Morgan (#3, above) put up a three-point shot with 32 seconds to go in the game, which gave the Saints the one-point lead that netted a win over visiting Auburn Adventist Academy, 48-47 – with a round of photos following:
Ahead, more photos and game notes:
First, here’s the team photo that was being taken in the view above:
The Saints’ win was an extra thrill for fans because it didn’t seem likely for most of the game. Starting in the second quarter, Auburn rolled up a big lead which swelled to as many as 12 points in the second half. Late in the third quarter, Auburn started to have ball-handling problems, blowing passes, and missing shots. The Saints worked to close the gap.

Nonetheless, the Saints trailed until Morgan’s 3-pointer. The win moves Seattle Lutheran on to the next round of the 2B state tournament. They’ll play LaConner on the road at 7 pm Friday.
