King's West girls, Bremerton boys basketball in playoffs this week

With recent playoff victories, both the Bremerton boys' and the King's West girls' basketball teams advanced in their respective postseason tournaments.

Bremerton beat Olympic 65-50 at home Feb. 20 in the Olympic League Tournament — its third win in as many tries against the Trojans this season — to secure a No. 2 seed in the combined Olympic-Western Cascade League (OWL) tournament, determining seeding to the Class 3A West Central District III tournament. Districts begin Thursday.

Josh Koets scored a team-high 20 points and Andre Coleman added 15 for the Knights, who outscored Olympic 19-9 in the third quarter after leading 28-25 at halftime.

The Knights (12-9) host Timberline of the Western Cascade League at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the OWL tournament. The winner is the OWL No. 4 seed to districts, while the loser is eliminated.

King's West, meanwhile, beat Mount Vernon Christian 40-36 in the Class 2B Tri-District tournament Feb. 21 to rebound from a 43-29 first-round setback against La Conner.

The Lady Warriors (12-8) face either Orcas Island or Evergreen Lutheran at 4:45 p.m. Friday at Chief Leschi High School in Puyallup in a loser-out game. The winner secures a berth to the Class 2B state tournament, beginning March 4 in Spokane.

KW sophomore Breyenne Mosey scored a game-high 23 points against Mount Vernon Christian.
