Mt Si High School Boys and Girls Basketball teams play KingCo Tournament playoff games today, February 8th, at Bellevue College. MSHS boys start the action at 3PM followed by the ladies at 4:45PM. Both teams face Mercer Island High School.
Today marks the boys second KingCo Tournament game. They beat Liberty in an elimination game this past Saturday, 53-47, at home. That victory ensured the team a trip to the district tournament which begins this Saturday, February 12th. They play today and Thursday (2/10) to determine KingCo Conference top four seedings for the District Championship Tournament. The boys face a tough Mercer Island team – who took both regular season games from the Wildcats. But as we all know, the regular season means nothing when it comes to the playoffs!
The Lady Wildcats play their first tournament game today at 4:45PM. The girls team placed 2nd in KingCo Conference standings which earned them a first round tournament bye. Just like the boys team, they play today and Thursday (2/10) for their conference ranking as they move forward to the district playoffs. For both MSHS teams – a good conference playoff seed greatly affects their district tournament matchups on the road to the State Championship Tournament.
So if you are around Mt Si when school lets out today, prepare for a mass exodus – destination Bellevue. It should be a great afternoon and evening of Wildcat Basketball. And if you run into a MSHS player – don’t mess with their game day routine. It’s time to play ball, Snoqualmie. Go Wildcats! Or as Jenny would say…. “Go 22!”
Again, tip-off is at 3PM and 4:45PM today, February 8th. Bellevue College is located at 3000 Landerholm Circle SE Bellevue, WA. For directions visit http://bellevuecollege.edu/about/around/directions/.
