Davis came out right away and played like the No. 1 team in the state. The Pirates (21-2) opened up on an 11-1 run and scored 20 points in the first quarter en route to a 79-45 blowout over the Bothell Cougars (17-10).
Led by a trio of seniors, the Pirates shot an impressive 65.4 percent from the field. Senior Devonte Luckett led all scorers with 23 points in an efficient 11-for-15 shooting. Seniors Cooper Kupp and David Trimble each added 19 and 13 points respectively for the Pirates. Davis used a massive 41-23 rebounding edge to stay in control and keep their lead.
Zach Lavine, considered to be the top recruit in the state, was held to four points in the first half. Bothell struggled to get any sort of offensive rhythm going throughout Thursday's 4A quarterfinal game. Lavine finished with 20 points; most of them coming when the game was out of reach for Bothell. The Cougars were held to 32.1 percent shooting in the game.
Davis' lead reached 30 points, 53-23 with three minutes to go in the third quarter. The Pirates kept that 30 point margin for the rest of the game and cruised to victory in their opening round game.
The Pirates will take on the winner of Bellarmine Prep/Mount Rainier on Friday at 7:15 p.m. Davis will face the loser of that same game at 12:15 p.m.
