Parmar’s game winner lifts Meridian boys basketball over Burlington

Simran Parmar hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 2.5 seconds left to give visiting Meridian a 60-59 Northwest Conference win over Burlington-Edison on Thursday.

Meridian trailed by four with 1:30 left in the fourth quarter when Parmar was fouled shooting a 3-pointer. Parmar converted on 2 of 3 attempts to cut Burlington’s lead to 59-57.

The Tigers missed the front-end of a one-and-one, and Parmar missed his initial 3-point attempt but his teammates batted the rebound back out to him and he buried the game-winner.

“Our reaction was to defend them,” Meridian coach Shane Stacy said. “After that, we celebrated. It was a great shot.”

Squalicum 71, Nooksack Valley 32 – Damek Mitchell had 29 points on host Squalicum’s senior night to lead the Storm to a Northwest Conference win. Squalicum forced Nooksack Valley into 22 turnovers and held the Pioneers to just 11 points in the second half. Casey Bauman led Nooksack with 14 points.

Mount Baker 64, Sehome 61 – Grant Balvanz had 19 of his game-high 24 points in the second half to help lead host Mount Baker to a Northwest Conference win. Balvanz hit a 3-pointer with two minutes left, and then hit two clutch free-throws with 6.5 seconds left to seal the game. Austin Roberts led Sehome with 18 points.

Sedro-Woolley 66, Blaine 49 – Host Blaine shot 15 free-throws compared to Sedro’s 31 as the Borderites lost a Northwest Conference game. Sedro’s Davis Mihelich had a game-high 24 points, including nine points from the free-throw line. Chase Abshere led Blaine with 16 points.
