State Day 4: Gonzaga-Inglemoor

Bullpups are facing a long and lanky sweet shooting team from Seattle that scores five deep. 6-6 player Todd Campbell on wing, 6-8 Paul Jorg in post and a 6-4 wing as well. Team was 10-for 16 from the field at one point, operating out of a 1-3-1 offense that spread the court. But Prep, whose David Stockton hit three 3-pointers, rallied from a 12-7 first-quarter deficit to lead 23-19.

Inglemoor then scored 10 points in the final 4 minutes of the half to go from 27-24 behind to 29-27 ahead.

3 Q - foul troubles and subbing puts four reserves on floor with Travis Long and Inglemoor’s well disciplined crew takes advantage for a 43-38 lead this period. Bullpups need some magic.

4Q - They find some in Sean Fischer who scores 8 points in 50 seconds for a 48-45 lead. A couple ill advised shots and foul on a 3-point try ties it, Stockton answers with a 3-pointer, 

Prep leads 53-50 with 1:32 remaining and the ball. It’s a grinder.

56-55 with 20 seconds left. Nicholas put team of 55-50, but Prep allows a 3-pointer.

57-57 with 5 seconds left. Nicholas and Stockton each 1-2 from the line and Inglemoor scores. The game tyer on a put back over the top by 6-6 Todd Campbell in the scrum for a reb of missed layin. Fischer shot off front rim as time expires OT (second today in consolation games).

OT - Fischer opens with hist 5th 3-pointer of half and great spin layin by Long makes it 62-57. Currently 64-61 with 1:08 left.

14,5 seconds, Prep’s hit 8 for 10 from line for 70-64 lead and wins  72-62 (intentional foul for 1 free throw and basket by Stockton ends it.

Earlier, LC blew most of a 17 point lead, but was bailed out by Daisy Burke who made 6 of her 20 points down the stretch to bail out her tem for a 60-55 win. 

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

State 4A: Rehash of night before

When a basketball game gets started an hour late and newspaper deadlines are just an hour away it makes writing a game story difficult. Don’t know if I was able to articulate the drama of last night’s Gonzaga Prep-Decatur game. It was a grinder. Unfortunately for the Bullpups, they came up just short, 48-44 in overtime. Here is a recap of what I wrote and things I may have missed.

 

State 4A: Gonzaga Prep

Things look bleak for Gonzaga Prep at the outset of their game against Decatur, which started at 7:30 p.m. Outscored 17-2 Prep struggled in first quarter before Sean Fischer hits two 3’s and David Stockton scores near end of period for 17-10 deficit.

From there the Bullpups regrouped, outscored Decatur to take a 31-26 halftime lead.

Nicholas goes wild, 11 points, 48-45 prep after three quarters.

Nicholas hits two FTs, puts G-Prep up 52-48 with 3:55 to play.

Score remains the same, but now 2:47 remain. LC girls close to tipping off vs. Federal Way.

Marcus Gibbs gets away with a major shove on Stockton, gets the steal and layin. Tie at 54. But Nicholas hits two FTs to put G-Prep back on top 56-54 as clock hits 1:00.

Out of a timeout, Terrell Wiliams gets a good look at a 3 but hits iron only. Nicholas rebounds, gets fouled and hits both FTs for a 58-54 lead. 15.8 seconds left.

Another missed 3. Stocton rebounds this one and heads to the line with 7.1 seconds left and a chance to ice things.

FINAL — Gonzaga Prep 60, Decatur 54.

The Bullpups looked poised down the stretch — much like the team that won the GSL title.

Quick stats of note from the final box:

Nicholas 22 points … 7x12 from the field, 8x8 from the line, to go with 6 rebounds.

Stockton had six turnovers maneuvering through the Decatur pressure but also had 13 points, seven boards and three steals.

Tibbs led Decatur with 19 points but was only 2-of-8 from 3-point range. Also had seven assists.

G-Prep held Decatur to 36 percent shooting (18-of-50) and outboarded the Gators 35-31.
