Prep boys basketball: Victory for Hawks against Shorecrest

Even though he has averaged double-figure scoring so far this season, Mountlake Terrace Hawks’ junior Khyree Armstead admitted he hadn’t hit full stride in his shooting touch after a Terrace victory on Dec. 8.

“My shot’s not really falling the way I’d like it to, but things are going to start clicking eventually,” Armstead said. “I hope I can get that big night.”

That big night came on Tuesday as Armstead scored 23 points to lead the Hawks to a 59-49 win over the Shorecrest Scots in the 2A/3A Wesco League opener for both squads.

The 23 points put up by Armstead was his season-high and the biggest scoring performance by a Hawk so far this year. Brock Davis added 14 points in the victory.

Shorecrest entered Tuesday’s match-up undefeated in five games, scoring an average of almost 69 points per game in those five wins, but Terrace held the high-flying Scots to their lowest point total of the season to secure the triumph.

The Hawks will continue with 2A/3A Wesco League competition on Friday, Dec. 16, when they host the Marysville-Getchell Chargers; tip-off is slated for 7:15 p.m.
