Squalicum standout senior guard Josiah Westbrook will be a game-time decision when the Storm travel to face River Ridge during its Class 2A State Tournament Regional game at 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 26, at Puyallup High School.
Westbrook injured his knee during the first half of Squalicum’s 62-56 overtime loss to Shorecrest during the 2A District Tournament championship game last Saturday. Westbrook missed the entire second half with a bandage wrapped around his left knee.
It was a re-aggravation of an injury Westbrook suffered during the football season, Storm coach Dave Dickson said.
“I think he is going to be a game-time decision, and I am hoping that he will be able to play.” Dickson said. “At the same time, we will wait and see.”
Never miss a local story.
Westbrook was Squalicum’s leading scorer entering the district title game, averaging 17.3 points. The Storm will surely want him available against highly-ranked River Ridge.
“They are athletic and physical and are a good-rebounding team,” Dickson said of River Ridge. “Their height isn’t the biggest concern, but their athleticism and physicality is.”
