BASKETBALL: West Seattle High School boys in state semifinals after victory tonight

9:04 PM: Just in from the Tacoma Dome – the West Seattle High School boys won their first game at the state 3A basketball tournament, 62-54 over Wilson HS (Tacoma), and that means they’re in the semifinals! Tomorrow (Friday) night at 9 pm, head coach Keffrey Fazio and the Wildcats will face the winner of the game that’s just about to start, Rainier Beach vs. Garfield.

P.S. Thanks to Tami Denton for score updates (added – and a photo) from the Dome! Our photographer took ill at the last minute so we couldn’t go to Tacoma tonight, but we will be there for tomorrow night’s big game.

10:59 PM UPDATE: Garfield beat Rainier Beach, 59-58, so that’s who West Seattle plays Friday night in the semifinals.

    Very nice.  Tough match ups await.  Go WS Wildcats, get wild and aggressive.  Hawk the ball defensively and work it on offence.

      It’s all in the story. 9 pm tonight, again in Tacoma, where all the state games are played. As we did yesterday, we’ll also have ticket and driving info in today’s calendar preview later this morning. (Ticket info’s on the right side of the bracket page.)

    Had a major flashback when I read the WS High had not been in the semis since 1970. Remember going to games that year with my father, Joe Devine, who taught at Westside (as he called it). After the games he would take us to Joe Bananas Pizza. Go Indians!

    I believe that was a Rob Wunder team in 1970.

Sorry, comment time is over.
