Watch: Cooper Church, Adam Davis break down No. 5 Tahoma's historic regional round win over No. 4 Kamiakin

Highlights, postgame interviews from Tahoma's first state playoff win since 1981

RICHLAND, Wash. — Oregon State commit Tyler Bilodeau scored 21 points, but Tahoma's hot shooting and interior defense was too much as the No. 5 Bears beat No. 4 Kamiakin 54-51 in a 4A regional playoff game to secure a first round state tournament bye.

Sophomore Adam Davis and guard Joey Hassman each led Tahoma with 15 points. Hassman hit 5 of 8 3-point attempts and Davis had three more as the Bears shot better from behind the arc (47.6 percent) than it did from inside (26.3 percent). Carson Talbert, who shot just 5 of 17 from the field against Kamiakin's length and attention, added 11 and 12 boards.

Watch highlights, as well as Davis and 6-foot-9 center Cooper Church talking about the game and the Bears' state hopes.
