Lummi boys fall to defensively sound Tulalip Heritage


Lummi's boys' basketball team couldn't overcome Tulalip Heritage's stout defensive pressure and took a 56-50 loss Tuesday, Feb. 4, at Lummi High School. The Blackhawks were led by Trazil Lane's 12 points.

"Tulalip did a good job pressuring us defensively, which helped them create 27 turnovers," Lummi coach Jerome Toby said in a phone interview. "We're just going to get back to practice. It's the end of the regular season, so we need to clean some things up before the playoffs start on Saturday."

Lummi's defense didn't get the amount of pressure that Tulalip's did, as the Blackhawks only forced 12 turnovers.

Kavarez Lane added nine points and a team-high six rebounds for Lummi.

Lummi plays next in the first round of its postseason, at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8, at home. The Blackhawks' opponent is still to be determined.
