Hardwood Classic roundup: King’s boys on to 1A title game

Tyler Linhardt’s jumper with 1.8 seconds remaining lifted the Knights to an overtime victory.

YAKIMA — Tyler Linhardt of King’s made a leaning jump shot in the lane with 1.8 seconds remaining in overtime, and Seattle Academy’s ensuing halfcourt prayer caromed off the backboard as the No. 14 Knights continued their magical run at the 1A boys Hardwood Classic with a 68-66 semifinal win over the top-seeded Cardinals.

Linhardt had a chance to salt the game away for King’s (18-10) in regulation, but missed two free throws with 6.9 remaining and the Knights up 54-51.

Seattle Academy’s Leo DeBruhl forced overtime by draining a step-back 3-pointer over Linhardt at the regulation buzzer.

King’s will face No. 6 Lynden Christian in Saturday’s title game in a rematch of the 1A Northwest District championship, which the Knights won 69-57. Lynden Christian beat La Salle 71-58 in the Friday’s other semifinal.

Linhardt scored 22 points on 6-for-18 shooting from the field to lead King’s, and was aided by 13 points apiece off the bench from Will Pohland and Jaron Hansen.

DeBruhl led all scorers with 27 points for Seattle Academy (24-3).

YAKIMA — Julianna Walker sank a halfcourt shot at the buzzer to eliminate the Knights in a consolation game Friday at the Yakima Valley SunDome.

With .4 remaining on the clock, Walker collected a rolling inbounds pass off the floor and heaved it toward the basket in one motion. It swished through the net, sending the seventh-seeded Gators (19-7) to Saturday’s state title game and negating a comeback attempt by King’s (19-10), which trailed 47-38 after three quarters.

Walker scored 37 points in the game, and tied her own state tournament record, set last season, with eight made 3-pointers.

Claire Gallagher scored 14 points for the Knights to lead four double-digit scorers.
