Weekly Roundup

2 wins, 1 loss and a bigger loss

This week was a time of highs and lows, team victories and personal injury. We ended the week with still a perfect league record (10-0) after dominant victories over Newport (68-33) and Mt. Si (61-40), but in Friday’s game at Mt. Si we lost one of our strongest young players, Kelsey Hudson. She sustained a leg injury early in the first quarter as she took the ball full court and had player on player collision during an attempted layup. We will miss her on the court and hope for a safe and speedy recovery.

On Saturday the team braved the mountain passes and headed east to take on perennial powerhouse Moses Lake. After a first quarter 10-10 stalemate, Bothell fell behind in the 2nd quarter 18-28 and never recovered for a 43-55 loss.

The loss pushes Bothell to 14-2 overall and drops us slightly in the state rankings.  We are now second in the WIAA 4A rankings behind Sunnyside (Moses Lake is ranked #9) and we are drop one to fourth in the Seattle Times Power Rankings (Moses Lake is ranked #8).

Game Summaries

Newport

The home game was another standard for the season where we had 4 players in double digit scoring. We won every quarter (17-10, 20-6, 19-8, 12-9), and had a 21 point halftime lead. Corosdale lead with 16 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals & 3 blocks.  Jones had 14/5/3/4/0, Hudson 12/9/1/2/1 and Cowan 11/5/2/2/0

Bothell girls clinch conference tournament berth; Inglemoor falls to Issaquah

Mt. Si

Friday’s 61-40 win at Mt. Si pushed the team to 10-0 in league play with a 2 game lead over Woodinville. The game was a repeat of the Newport win: winning every quarter (13-8, 14-10, 14-9, 20-13) and balanced scoring.  The highlight was a 20 point fourth quarter – it’s always nice to finish strong! Corosdale lead all scoring again with 18 points, had a very strong 14 rebounds (5 offensive), 1 assist, 2 steals and 5 big blocks. Jones had 11 points, 8 rebounds (5 offensive), 2 assists, 1 steal. Gibson had 11 points  and 3 rebounds. Cowan had 10 points, 3 rebounds and 2 blocks.

Moses Lake

Moses Lake (last year 25-1 and 4th in State) has perennially feisty, state qualifying, girls basketball teams: maybe it’s about growing up in the windswept farmlands of eastern Washington, the water, family tradition or just the coaching. The team we played Saturday was no exception – they were ready and confident, and so was their rowdy student section. The game started with both teams trying to find the others weaknesses and at the end of Q1 it was all tied at 10-10. But then came the Q2 and they doubled us up – outscoring us 18-8 and taking a 10 point lead into halftime. Q3 they were still putting up the points and stretched their lead to 47-31 (although we cut the lead to 10 partway trough the 3rd) as they outscored us 19-13. We held them better in Q4 and picked up a little ground as we outscored them 12-8 for a final score of Bothell 43 – Moses Lake 55.

As a team Bothell shot only 33% from the floor (18 of 54) and 23% from 3 (3-13). We didn’t help ourselves at the free throw line either as we only hit 27% (4-15) – this is very unusual for the normally good FT shooting team.  Corosdale was the only player in double digits with 17 points, only 4 rebounds and 3 steals. Jones had 9 points and 10 rebounds, Romulus had 8 points and 2 assists and Cowan had 4 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 blocks.

Up Next

  • Wednesday we play at Skyline (6-3 league) 7:15 PM
  • Friday we play home quad vs Woodinville (8-2 league) 6:00 PM

This will probably be one of the toughest weeks of the season and will be a real test for the team. Skyline is 5-1 in January and is on a two game win streak after beating Woodinville and Issaquah. Besides losses to Bothell and Skyline, Woodinville has been on a tear – last week beating Inglemoor 73-47 (hitting 10 for 20 from 3) with Soph. Madison Dubois hitting a season high 23 points.

Bothell with narrow win at WHS, plays Eastlake Wednesday at BHS

Taking a hard-fought game 52-48 over Woodinville Friday night on their home court, Bothell remains undefeated in league play and is now in sole possession of 1st place in the KingCo standings.

The Woodinville games over the last few years have been very close, tough games and this was no exception as both teams took their runs. Down 8-10 after 1 and up at half 23-18, Bothell started the 4th all tied at 33.  But then they hit a slump and were down 5 points with 5 minutes left in the game. Not to be outdone, Bothell hit back-to-back-to-back 3-pointers to pull ahead and hold the lead for the final 3 minutes.  Junior Emily Gibson hit two 3s and Taya Corosdale hit one in the run. Corosdale’s 8 for 8 from the line helped Bothell hit 82% for the night from the stripe.

Up next for Bothell is Eastlake @ BHS, Wednesday 7:15PM. Bothell won the away match-up 68-65 in December after coming from behind. Expect another battle and keep and eye on the Wolves all-star guard Gina Marxen who is averaging 20.2 points per game.
