South Kitsap boys basketball playoff picture

South Kitsap’s boys basketball team will need to win its final two league games to have an opportunity to claim Class 4A Narrows League’s No. 2 seed entering next week’s West Central District Tournament. That is significant because 4A Narrows’ second-place team hosts the seventh seed from 4A South Puget Sound League on Feb. 13. Meanwhile, the No. 3 seed from 4A Narrows must travel to 4A SPSL’s fourth-place team that night.

The Wolves put themselves in this predicament with a 67-36 loss Friday at Olympia and their one-point overtime loss Jan. 23 against Bellarmine Prep. South defeated both schools earlier in the season and could have wrapped up a league championship by sweeping both.

Instead, the Wolves now must win tonight against Yelm and then Wednesday versus Stadium, which defeated South 64-54 on Dec. 12, to clinch a tie for second with the Tigers (12-6 overall, 9-2 league). That is the best the Wolves can hope for as Stadium cannot lose ground in 4A Narrows tonight because it plays a nonleague game against Timberline.

If South (12-6, 7-3) wins its final two games, it must play a tiebreaker game against the Tigers. Athletic director Ed Santos said Monday he does not know when or where that game would be played.
