Photos: Eastside Catholic edges Rainier Beach in final minute of 3A boys basketball state third place game

TACOMA — Chika Nduka scored a go-ahead contested layup with 15 seconds left to lift top-seeded Eastside Catholic over 13-seed Rainier Beach in Saturday’s 3A state third place game in the Tacoma Dome.

Rainier Beach senior John Hart led all scorers with 32 points, which is the highest individual point total across the 3A/4A boys tournament. Nahmir Robinson’s driving attempt at a game-winner fell short at the buzzer.

Here are photos from the game:
