2. O’Dea 20-5 (3A)

Defeated Bellevue, then Garfield, 64-60, before losing to top-ranked Eastside Catholic in a district title game. The Crusaders enter the 3A regional round as the No. 7 seed with a guaranteed state berth.

3. Union 24-0 (4A)

Brought home the 4A West-Central Bi-District tournament championship with wins over Sumner, 83-65, then Battle Ground in the title game, 82-57. The Titans enter the 4A regional round as the No. 1 seed.

Liam Lloyd is on a mission. His 30 points and 12 boards helped two-time defending 4A champ Gonzaga Prep edge out No. 9 Chiawana for the second and final 4A District 8 state berth.
