Mount Si girls hoops takes win over Canadian foe at Cactus Jam, Wildcat boys get blown out by California team in San Diego, plus other hoops action…..

UPDATED from yesterday

Another day of tournament hoops wrapped up down south yesterday for Mount Si High School’s basketball teams.

The Wildcat boys fell again at the Under Armour Holiday Classic in San Diego for the second straight day. The opposing Lone Pine squad from California broke out to a quick early advantage, and cruised from there, handing Mount Si a blowout 63-41 loss. LP was led by the two guys we told you would be the ones to watch prior to yesterday’s game. Brad Greene scored a game-high 19 to lead Lone Pine, while Ryan Cappello added 17 to pace the victors.

Ryan Fischer led the way for the Wildcats with 14 points, while Colton Swain added 10. Lone Pine’s defense held Mount Si to just 33% from the floor as the Wildcats moved to 1-2 on the tournament.

Mount Si wraps up play later today.

Meanwhile, the Wildcat girls picked up a win at the Cactus Jam tournament down in Phoenix. Mount Si rallied late and fought off Monsignor McCoy from Medicine Hat, AB, Canada 37-34 and will now advance into the fourth-place game this morning against West Valley High School from Fairbanks, AK.

Annie Hiebert scored nine points and added 11 boards – one point off a double-double – to lead the Wildcats, while Emma Smith added eight points to the Mount Si cause. Junior guard Emilee Jackson led McCoy with a game-high 14 points.

Cedarcrest boys fall: The Red Wolves dropped to 3-5 on the season with a 49-39 loss to Woodland, from Cowlitz County in southwest Washington, at the Sundome tournament over in Yakima yesterday afternoon. Jake Kirschenmann led Cedarcrest with a double-double of 15 points and 10 rebounds. The Red Wolves struggled offensively, hitting only 27% from the floor in the loss. Pascal Negata aided the efforts for CHS with six points. The Red Wolves meet Decatur of Federal Way to wrap up proceedings this afternoon.

Kenney’s big game not enough for Centralia CC women in loss: Cedarcrest High School alum Susan Kenney scored 24 to lead Centralia College’s women’s basketball team, but it was not enough as the Blazers fell to Umpqua 71-68 in a semifinal game of the Lower Columbia CC tournament in Longview. Kenney, a sophomore from Duvall and 2014 CHS grad, was 9-19 from the floor with four three-pointers, and also recorded five rebounds, four assists and two steals. Centralia plays this afternoon for third place against the host Red Devils.
