Issaquah suffers third loss to eventual state champ Garfield, settles for third
With the game on the line, the ball got into the right player’s hands, but the result didn’t go the way the Issaquah Eagles envisioned it.
Brian Watson’s contested shot from deep in the corner didn’t find its mark, and Garfield escaped with a 61-59 victory in the semifinals of the Class 4A state boys basketball tournament March 7 at the Tacoma Dome.

Eagles draw tough bracket after 64-48 rebound win over Bellarmine Prep
Avoiding a letdown after the stinging defeat to Garfield in the KingCo 4A championship game, Issaquah used its state qualifier Feb. 28 against Bellarmine Prep as a tuneup heading into the Hardwood Classic.
The Eagles pulled away from the Lions after a back-and-forth first-quarter to win, 64-46, at the regional matchup played at Puyallup High School.

The Issaquah High School boys basketball team had hoped things would turn out differently than 2012, when they last played for the KingCo title against Garfield.
In front of a packed gym Feb. 21 at Juanita High School, KingCo’s two top squads were set to decide the rubber match.
Unfortunately, like two years ago, it was all Garfield from the opening tip.
Garfield left little doubt about the outcome as it raced out to a double-digit lead before Issaquah was able to hit its second field goal, pulling away for an 83-65 win.
