MATCHUP WE’RE MOST INTRIGUED BY

Central Valley vs. Glacier Peak: These two 4A contenders seem to find each other this time of year. Last season, the two teams split – the Bears won in regionals, and Glacier Peak returned the favor at the state tournament. Central Valley will not want to get into a track meet in this game, and will rely on its hard-nosed defense, led by MJ Bruno and Peyton Howard. Grizzles will need to find that high gear to win in Spokane.

Woodinville 72, Rogers of Puyallup 61

Union 56, Beamer 55

Glacier Peak 63, Central Valley 58

Chiawana 66, Kentridge 60
