Kingston Wins at State

It seems like forever since Kingston couldn’t win a game. Now it seems like they can’t lose.

Blake Conley showed up on the scene a couple of years ago when Kingston may not hae even won a basketball game. Now, it’s back to back years in the state tournament. This year, they have an opening round win and a chance to advance to the championship game with a win today.

Kudos to Blake Conley and his staff. Kudos to athletic director Dan Novick. And big kudos to the players and parents. This is a great story no matter what happens tonight. A big win over a perennial power would be icing on the cake!

News & Notes

Couple items to discuss. Looking for feedback…

1 – The Kingston Buccaneers draw Anacortes for their first game at the State Basketball Tournament in Yakima. Being from Oak Harbor, I know Anacortes has always had an excellent program. I don’t know anything about them, but I’m guessing Blake Conley’s team will have all they can handle with the Seahawks. Wish I could attend, but I’m out of town. Hey Bucs fans…what do you think about your team and their chances?

2 – Huskies hoops comes from behind to beat Washington State in Pullman last night. Huge game as pertains the the Pac-12 title and getting into to Big Dance. Two games left on the road at UCLA and USC. I think they need to win out to seal their spot in the tournament. Do you agree?

3 – Huskies football gets a chance to show how far they’ve come with a game at LSU early in the season. After that, they open Pac-12 play at Oregon and home against USC. How do Dawg fans feel about the schedule?
