Latest from The Spokesman-Review
Gonzaga recruit Gary Bell had a huge night, scoring 47 points in Kentridge High's win tonight. His coach Dave Jamison told me earlier this week that Bell was named Washington's Mr. Basketball by the Washington State coaches association.
Here's a recap of Bell's game from The Seattle Times:
Gary Bell broke the district tournament scoring record with 47 points as the Chargers returned to state with a victory in a win-or-go-home game.
Kentridge plays a seeding game at 4:30 p.m. Monday at Auburn High, but is assured of a spot in the first round of the playoffs.
Bell, a senior guard headed to Gonzaga, hit 15 of 29 field-goal attempts, including 5 of 8 three-point attempts. He made 12 of 14 free throws and had 10 rebounds and three assists.
Bell broke the record of 45 points set by Justin Holt of Lincoln in a 2002 district-tournament game.
(Programming note: I'll have an update on GU's four incoming recruits early next week. I talked to all four of their coaches this week).
