Lummi's boys' basketball team locked down on defense in the second half to earn a 67-45 win over Cedar Park Christian from Mountlake Terrace on Tuesday, Feb. 11, at Mount Vernon Christian High School. The Blackhawks were led by Kavarez Lane's 13 points in the semifinal game of the Class 1B Northwest District Tournament.

Lummi went into halftime up just four points, but held Cedar Park Christian to just 13 points in the second half.

"We didn't play a bad first half, but at halftime we made some defensive adjustments," Lummi coach Jerome Toby said in a phone interview. "The boys did a good job coming out defensively focused and held them to just two field goals in the third."

The Blackhawks finished with 14 steals. Charlie Wilson and Willie Jones each added 12 points for Lummi, and Trazil Lane had eight points and 11 rebounds.

Lummi takes on Tulalip Heritage in the district championship game at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13, at Mount Vernon Christian.
