CHS boys hoops falls, plus action from the hardwood, the diamond, the track and gymnastics to start your Super Bowl weekend…..

Good Saturday morning. A lot of rain and wind out there this morning so everyone stay safe especially down in the lower Valley.

We start on the hardwood. Cedarcrest High School’s boys basketball team had last night all to themselves for the Valley hardwood hoops action. They hit the road to Mountlake Terrace and fell 72-57 to the Hawks. Rob Baringer had a game-high 18 points to lead Mountlake, while Brennan Mallot led Cedarcrest with 15.

Muhammed Kinteh added 15 for the Hawks, while Cameron Brady pitched in 13 for Cedarcrest. Rounding it out, Nicolo Cammarano had 12 points for the Red Wolves and Mason Christianson pitched in 10 for Terrace.

Cedarcrest hosts Shorewood Wednesday for Senior Night at 7:15 at CHS’ campus in Duvall.

College: PLU men fall to conference-leading Whitman-The Lutes saw a win streak come to an end last night, falling to Whitman, unbeaten in conference play at 9-0, 77-66. Freshman Brett Williams, from North Bend and a 2019 MSHS’er, played 12 minutes off the bench and recorded a pair of assists and steals each pacing the Lutes.
