Friday hoops wrap: MSHS boys finish tournament with loss, plus colleges…..

Good New Year’s Eve morning, the final one of 2016. Basketball on the plate once again this morning.

We’ll work to get final numbers for you, but Mount Si High School’s boys’ basketball team wrapped up play yesterday at the Rancho Mirage Holiday Invitational by falling in their final game, 60-53, to Cabrillo of Lompoc, CA, near Santa Barbara, and as we noted yesterday, the hometown for UW football legend Napoleon Kaufman.

Mount Si finishes the tournament 2-2 and will now resume play following the holiday break next week.

College action:

Northwest women fall in heartbreaker: Northwest University’s women’s hoopsters fell just short last night, losing 67-66 in a nail-biter at home in Kirkland to Eastern Oregon. Duvall’s Kalee Fowler, a junior and 2014 Cedarcrest HS alum, played 11 minutes off the bench for the Eagles, and scored two points. She also collected two rebounds for NWU, who drops to .500 at 8-8 overall, 3-3 in conference play with the defeat. Northwest hosts the College of Idaho tonight.

Carroll men 0-2 in SoCal: After their loss on Thursday, the Carroll-MT men’s hoops team looked to rebound last night in their southern California tournament with a win over the tournament host The Master’s University. That, unfortunately, did not happen, as the Saints fell 84-73 to the Mustangs in Santa Clarita. Senior Zach Taylor, he of Duvall and a 2013 Cedarcrest HS grad, was limited to just seven points on 3-10 shooting from the floor for Carroll, who drops to 11-3 on the season with the loss.
