The Gonzaga Prep Bullpups jumped out to an early lead at the Tacoma Dome on Saturday night, holding the Curtis Vikings at bay in the WIAA boys basketball championship. In the third quarter, the Bullpups have an 11-point lead after defense dominated the first half.
Parker Kelly and Chris Sarbaugh handled the scoring load for the Bullpups in the first half, each scoring nine points. Sarbaugh had two assists and a steal, with Kelly adding two rebounds and a steal of his own. Sarbaugh will play his college ball down the street from Gonzaga Prep and nearby Gonzaga.
For the Vikings, it’s been all about DaVonte Lacy. The Washington State bound senior runs the Curtis offense, but found trouble scoring against a tough Gonzaga Prep defense at times. Lacy finished the half with 12 points to lead all scorers, but the Vikings shot just 39-percent from the field as a team, missing all three of their three-point attempts in the half.
In the third quarter, Gonzaga Prep has the advantage, leading Curtis, 39-25. For more on the game, check out the rest of our WIAA boys basketball tournament StoryStream.
