MSHS boys basketball heads to postseason with win, plus news from CHS boys hoops and college track and field…..

From the boys’ hardwood, the Mount Si High School boys’ basketball team started out slow last night on the road at North Creek, but their big three got things going, and the Wildcats are now officially in the postseason.

Tyler Patterson scored 22 points to lead Mount Si to the come-from-behind 64-50 win over the Jaguars up in Snohomish County which kept them in the running for the second-place slot into the Kingco 4A playoffs and a first-round bye. Bijon Sidhu scored 14 points to pace the Wildcats, and Jabe Mullins added 12 for Mount Si, who shot 52% from the floor.

Mount Si (9-5 Kingco, 10-8 overall) leapfrogged Issaquah into third place in league with the win; the Eagles fell on the road at Newport and dropped to 8-5 in league play, ½ game back of the Wildcats, who still trail Skyline (9-4 league) by ½ game for second place. The Wildcats and Spartans meet at Skyline High School on Tuesday in a pivotal game that will help decide who gets that berth. Game time is 7:15 on the Plateau.

Red Wolves fall: CHS took a loss at home last night, and it was a tough one, as they fell to King’s 68-65, hurting their postseason chances. Cedarcrest plays Sultan this coming Wednesday at 6:45 in their final league game of the season. Stats for last night’s game were not available.
