State 4A boys: Fischer jump starts Prep

In an ugly first half, Gonzaga Prep shot just 23 percent from the field, but Curtis was little better. A lob over top cross court to Travis Long for flying layin puts Bullpups up 19-17 at half.

Bullpups can't generate movement or offense and Ryan Nicholas has been in and out due to a cut (blood time in wrestling parlance). Subs Parker Kelly and Chris Sarbaugh, however, have helped and Josh Kaufmann has made a couple free throws.

3Q - Sean Fischer where you been? Nine points this period helps Bullpups take 36-28 lead 

4Q - Prep ahead 48-36 3 min left. Three straight free throw misses giving Curtis a chance. 48-41 with 1:33 left. 17 sec 54-43 (Fischer hits his ft for most part)

 final: 54-43, first trophy since 1991

Prep plays Inglemoor for fourth and seventh, 1:30 p.m.

Lewis and Clark girls play Bellarmine Prep for fourth and eighth 11:30 a.m.
