How they got to regionals: King’s beat Cedar Park Christian-Bothell in the championship game of the District 1/2/3 Tri-District to earn the tri-district’s No. 1 seed; Hoquiam lost to Kalama in the District 4 third-place game to earn the district’s No. 4 seed.

Breakdown: In 2014, King’s has been one of the hottest teams in the state of Washington. After a loss to Lynden on Dec. 30, the Knights have reeled off 16 straight wins by an average margin of victory of nearly 24 points per game. Freshman guard Corey Kispert and junior Bundrant have been a steady backcourt presence that can hit daggers from behind the arc, while Calvin Kispert and Brett Jones have controlled the paint. King’s will have a distinct height advantage over the smaller Grizzlies, who are led by a trio of guards Newton, Steen and Adams III. Kelly averages 8.0 points per game and leads the team in rebounds and blocked shots, but he and the rest of his teammates will have their hands full tonight.
Prediction: King’s, 63-47
