Last updated 3/7/2019 at Noon
In a span of just over 24 hours, the King’s boys basketball team experienced the highest of highs and the lowest of lows.
The Knights pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the season by defeating No. 1 ranked and defending state champion Lynden Christian 73-50 in a quarterfinal game at the 1A state tournament Thursday, Feb. 28, in the Yakima Valley SunDome.
King’s then overcame a horrendous start against King’s Way Christian and had the lead in the fourth quarter before misfiring on six free throws in the final minute to lose 43-42 in a semifinal contest Friday, March 1.
