Prep basketball: Playoff roundup

Jackson boys end Monroe’s season 65-50

A roundup of Thursday night’s playoff games:


Jackson 65, Monroe 50

EVERETT — Four Jackson players scored in double figures and the Timberwolves overcame a Herculean effort from Monroe’s Colby Kyle to win the loser-out contest at the 4A District 1 Tournament.

Kyle finished with a game-high 34 points, but the Bearcats (17-6 overall) mustered little offense beyond their senior star.

Meanwhile, the Timberwolves received 17 points from Ben Olesen, 14 from Christian Liddell, 12 from Kevin Han and 10 from Channer Hendrickson.

“Jackson shot the ball really well,” Monroe coach Ben Williams said, noting that the T-Wolves made nine 3-pointers and were 18-for-21 from the foul line. “Kyle played really well, but we couldn’t make our shots outside the 3-point line.”

Jackson (16-8) advances to play top-seeded Glacier Peak in Saturday’s second-place game for the district’s final state berth.

Although the loss ended the Bearcats’ campaign, Williams said he believes his team has nothing to be ashamed of.

“Overall, it was a success, I’m proud of our guys,” Williams said. “They played hard, left everything on the floor and there are no regrets. We finished No. 2 in (Wesco 4A), something Monroe hasn’t done in a long time. We hope to build off of that for next year.”

After scoring just 17 points in the first half, the Warriors (20-3) hit seven 3-pointers in the second half on their way to outscoring the Panthers 36-24 in the final two periods.

“We knew we had to play our best,” Edmonds-Woodway coach Jon Rasmussen said. “Snohomish is a great team, and it was a great game.”

Coming out of halftime tied at 29, the Mountaineers (17-7) held King’s (14-11) to just six points in the third quarter and built a five-point advantage that was just enough to stave off a late comeback attempt by the Knights.
