One by one they've fallen off the edge of the world. OK, maybe not that bad, but after three days of non-stop hoops, just a single team from the state remains playing in the Open Division of the adidas Big Time tournament in Las Vegas.
"Rotary Select-1" got a pair of wins Thursday, hammering the Toledo (OH) Stars 95-61 and coming back later Thursday to advance to the round of 32, beating the Granite State Raiders 85-56.
Bremerton's Marvin Williams continued to
draw rave reviews for his play, including some who feel he may be the most valuable player in the 400-team field.
The younger "Rotary Select-2" squad also advanced in the "A" Division, that's the bracket of teams that placed second in their pools, beating the Missouri Rebels 83-76. The number-2 squad has the Bethel bookends, 6-8 Alex Tiefenthaler and 6-8 Brandon Moore, along with 6-6 guard Terrance Williams (Rainier Beach), 5-10 PG Jake Linton (Meadowdale) and 5-10 shooter Garrison Carr (Issaquah). All of those guys will be in the recruiting classes of 2005.
"Friends of Hoop" got a big win to open bracket play but took one on the chin, losing to the Baltimore Bombers 79-70 to end their Vegas run.
The games continue Friday but for the most part the Washington players will be doing the spectator thing. But if you have to be in the stands watching, we can think of many, many, many worse places to be than the Big Time.
