YAKIMA — King’s limited La Center to a season-low scoring output and converted clutch free throws in the final minute to earn a 51-48 1A state tournament quarterfinal win Thursday.

King’s forced 17 turnovers, outrebounded La Center 33-24 and had 16 offensive rebounds compared to the Braves’ 1. That allowed the Knights to score 15 second-chance points, while La Center had none.
