Washington high school (WIAA) 2B girls basketball regionals 2024: Wide-open chase for state championship

Napavine enters as tournament's top seed, but Warden (No. 2), Okanogan (No. 3) and Colfax (No. 4) right on Tigers' tail

With the 16-team field set for regional round of the 2023-24 WIAA Class 2B girls basketball tournament, here is SBLive WA’s weekend overview of the matchups, players to watch – and game score predictions:



Davenport Gorillas girls basketball 2023-24


Napavine is the No. 1 seed ... but it's Warden (2022 state champion) and Colfax (defending champion) who are the proven sums.


Junior Brynn McGaughy is not only the best player in the classification at Colfax, but the do-everything guard might be tops in Washington.


No. 10 seed Davenport went from No. 5 team in 2B Northeast to district finalist after seeing last-season payoff in switch to zone defense.


2023-24 Washington high school girls basketball, Rainier at Napavine (Angelica Askey)


No. 1 Napavine (21-2) vs. No. 8 Mabton (18-6)

2 p.m. Saturday, W.F. West High School

Skinny: Vikings are ultimate "heater" team with streaky 3-point shooting, but Tigers won earlier meeting in December.

Pick: Napavine, 74-65.


No. 2 Warden (20-4) vs. No. 7 Brewster (18-7)

8 p.m. Friday, Richland High School

Skinny: Cougars will be seething losing top seed in district finals loss, and will take it out on talented-but-young Bears.

Pick: Warden, 69-62.


No. 3 Okanogan (20-3) vs. No. 6 Adna (23-2)

8 p.m. Friday, Wenatchee High School

Skinny: Jacey Boesel-Karsyn Freeman guard matchup should be a doozy - and Pirates clip 2B Central Washington champions in classic.

Pick: Adna, 64-63.


No. 4 Colfax (21-4) vs. No. 5 Rainier (22-3)

8 p.m. Friday, West Valley High School, Spokane

Skinny: G Brynn McGaughy was perfect (14-for-14, 34 points) in last year's state game, so ... what is in store for a blistering encore?

Pick: Colfax, 60-52.


Tonasket girls basketball 2023-24


No. 9 Tonasket (20-4) vs. No. 16 Friday Harbor (8-14)

6 p.m. Friday, Grandview High School

Skinny: Tigers were probably a top eight seed ... until Saturday (Mabton win over Warden). They will play like one in lopsided win.

Pick: Tonasket, 71-40.


No. 10 Davenport (15-9) vs. No. 15 Tri-Cities Prep (12-10)

8 p.m. Friday, Cheney High School

Skinny: Never a bad idea to have a skilled, imposing 6-foot-3 center in middle of playoff action like Gorillas have in Clare Lathrop.

Pick: Davenport, 56-44.


No. 11 Cle Elum-Roslyn (17-7) vs. No. 14 Forks (19-7)

6 p.m. Friday, Ellensburg High School

Skinny: G Keira Johnson and Spartans' zone pressure can be problematic, but G Gracie Glondo is smooth operator for Warriors. 

Pick: Cle Elum-Roslyn, 61-52.


No. 12 Toutle Lake (19-6) vs. No. 13 La Conner (16-7)

4 p.m. Saturday, W.F. West High School

Skinny: Braves saw core state-tournament group graduate last spring. Next wave too young to solve Toutle Lake's guard pressure.

Pick: Toutle Lake, 63-47.
