Halftime of Southridge-North Central

Here's an update on the third-place boys game at Hec-Ed.

North Central and Southridge tussling in an all-east of the mountains matchup.

And perhaps, surprisingly, North Central of Spokane up 22-21 at halftime over Southridge of Kennewick.

North Central is the surprise team of the tournament, they're 10-18, and actually got in the semifinals somehow before getting blasted by Bainbridge last night.

Southridge still looks a little hungover from its loss to O'Dea. They were outscored 23-0 to finish the game in the other semifinal game.

We'll have periodic second-half updates.

That's how long North Central has to hold on to its five-point lead, and then all of a sudden, they are our third-place team.

Cody Hauenstein, the second-leading rebounder in this tournament, just hit a three-pointer to beat the third-quarter buzzer for N-C.

31-26, North Central, heading into the fourth.

Typical FSN. The NC/Southridge game still has 5 minutes left, so instead of showing that, they switch to a girls game in Oregon. Thanks a lot.

Exciting girls games though. It's 14 to 10 with 3 minutes left in the second quarter. Real burner of a game.

Apparently, NC won 47-39, if the WIAA/Cybersports score is a final.

Congratulations to the mighty NC Indians!

It's a final

Your third-place boys team in Class 3A has an 11-18 record. North Central High School of Spokane outlasted Southridge of Kennewick 47-39.

North Central finished the regular season with a 4-16 record, dead last in the Greater Spokane League.

Nick Rijon led N-C with 13 points and three steals. Cody Hauenstein added 10 points and five boards.

Travis Mattair had a huge game for Southridge, with 16 points, 16 boards, five assists and four steals.

But his team looked tired, and coach Jason DeVere admitted as much, saying the O'Dea semifinal game just zapped them emotionally. His team was also outscored 23-0 to end the game.

They shot just 14-for-46 from the field, Southridge did.

Championships coming up!
