PREP BOYS BASKETBALL: Wolves in thick of playoff chase

Sequim holds off Knights; Riders, Red Devils win

SEQUIM — Sequim stayed a half-game ahead of Olympic for the Olympic League’s third seed to district play with a 60-49 win over Bremerton.

Wolves coach Craig Brooks said the biggest takeaway was the victory itself.

“Winning the game,” Brooks said. “We are trying to get third in league. We need to take care of business down the stretch.”

The Wolves (4-5, 6-9) exacted some revenge from a 67-60 road loss to the Knights all the way back on Dec. 8.

Vince Carrizosa led the way with 14 points, including four 3-pointers, while Isaiah Moore added 12 for Sequim.

“Isaiah and Vince played great,” Brooks said.

Sequim visits North Kitsap (9-0, 11-4) on Friday.

Port Angeles 61, North Mason 40

PORT ANGELES — Everybody played and 11 Roughriders scored in beating the Bulldogs on Tuesday night.

“Defensively, we were really solid in the first half despite missing some guys,” coach Kasey Ulin said. “Ty [Hunter] is out sick, a couple of other guys are sick, but we were able to work on some things we wanted to focus on.”

Ulin said a goal was to take care of the basketball.

“We had seven turnovers which was a season low,” Ulin said.

The Riders also wanted to make things tough for North Mason offensively.

“We wanted to pressure the ball and we did. We forced 29 turnovers,” Ulin said.

“We had 38 points in the paint. We settled for too many 3s, but a lot of that was taking the first open shot. We played 15 guys, 12 in the first half, and that can throw off your rhythm a little.”

Parker Nickerson did a little bit of everything for Port Angeles, leading the way with 10 points, seven assists, seven steals and six rebounds.

Isaiah Shamp added 16 points and eight rebounds down low for the Riders (8-1, 10-5), and Josiah Long was active with five points, seven assists and three steals.

Port Angeles visits Olympic (4-5, 5-6) tonight.
