Lummi boys advance in district playoffs with solid defense


Lummi's boys' basketball team held Shoreline Christian scoreless in the first quarter and rolled to a 61-31 win in the first round of the Class 1B Northwest District Tournament on Saturday, Feb. 8, at Lummi.

Kavarez Lane led the Blackhawks with 12 points. Trazil Lane and Charlie Wilson each added 10 for Lummi.

"It was a great opening round for the playoffs," Lummi coach Jerome Toby said in a phone interview. "We played well in spurts again, so we're still trying to get a consistent 32 minutes."

Lummi outscored Shoreline Christian 13-0 in the first quarter and cruised through the middle of the game before turning up the offensive pressure again in the fourth with a 21-11 margin for the quarter. The Blackhawks finished with 12 steals.

"Defensively we came out and we got into them; our pressure slowed them down," Toby said.

Dean Williams added six points on a team-high two 3-pointers. Leo Scarborough had eight points for the Blackhawks.

"Scarborough did a great job off the bench tonight," Toby said. "He came in with energy and knocked down some shots."

Lummi takes on Cedar Park Christian from Mountlake Terrace at 3 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 11, at Mount Vernon Christian High School.
