Prep hot tickets: 11/28-12/1

Here are four local prep matchups to keep an eye on this week:

1. Girls basketball: Stanwood at Glacier Peak, 7:15 p.m. Wednesday. This is definitely one of the more intriguing non-conference matchups of the local high school basketball season. The Spartans will look almost exactly like they did last season — they lost only one senior from a team that advanced to the Class 3A state tournament. The Grizzlies will look decidely different than last season, when they advanced to the 4A state championship game — they lost their three best players to college programs. They do, however, have some returning and new talent.

2. Boys basketball: Kamiak at Mountlake Terrace, 7:15 p.m. Wednesday. This is another non-conference matchup of two solid programs. This game also will be a showcase for two of the area’s better players — the Knights’ Carson Tuttle and the Hawks’ Khyree Armstead.

3. Basketball: Everett at Cascade, 6:15 p.m. (girls), 7:45 pm. (boys) Friday. The Battle of Broadway, hardwood editions, will make for an interesting twinbill at Everett Community College. No matter how the rest of their seasons turn out, the winners of these contests will be able to reflect fondly on victories over their heated rivals.

4. Boys basketball: Arlington at Lake Stevens, 7:15 p.m. Friday. It will be intriguing to see how the Eagles respond to life without graduated sharpshooter Drew Bryson. Somebody — maybe Anthony Whitis, maybe Griffin Gardoski, maybe someone else — needs to step up to fill the void. The Vikings look to improve on last season, when they went 11-13, but will need production around All-Wesco 4A first-team pick Ryder Kavanaugh.
