PUYALLUP - For lack of consistently good shot making a trip to Yakima was lost.
Despite a huge advantage in shots taken and rebounding, the Seattle Christian boys basketball team fell to Cascade Christian, 50-46, in a Class 1A winner-to-state at the Yakima Sun Dome, loser-out regional game held at Puyallup High School on Fri., Feb. 24.
"It's tough to lose a game when you do almost everything the way you wanted," said a subdued Warrior head coach Micheal Watts. "We had more shots than they did, but we also missed more shots. Even though we hit the boards like no other, we had lots of misses within three feet of the basket. It was a matter of executing everything well, except for making shots."
Statistics bore out the observations of Watts.
Seattle Christian shot 13-of-45 from standard field goal range and 3-of-14 from beyond the 3-point arc compared to Cascade Christian's 10-of- 34 and 7-of-14 respectively. Rebounding went to SC, 45-36, with a 17-7 preponderance on the offensive glass.More ›
