The Season That Will Not Be Forgotten
Jun 20, 2021 5:49 PM

While everything outside the lines was different, in the 2021 Northwest Conference basketball season, as far a I could see, everything inside the lines was as normal as it could be.

Credit first goes to the coaches and parents for keeping their players and kids focused. I did not see any drop in intensity over the final days of the season, despite seniors having graduated, and hosted and attended grad parties. Their only link left to their school colors was on the basketball floor.

Most of all, credit to those seniors, and every player on every school’s roster, at every level of play. The made the best of an impossible situation and remained committed.

Welcome, Graduates!

It’s the final week, or “finals week.” As of this writing, 12 of the current 15 teams in the Northwest Conference will have “grad students” on their respective basketball floors this week. Two of the remaining three will have graduation ceremonies during the week.

Also, just in case they throw a last-minute state tournament together in Yakima, there is ZERO chance of snow on Snoqualmie Pass. I’d like to see January, or even February or March do that!

It's All About Rebounding
Jun 6, 2021 10:56 AM

Much of basketball is about rebounding. Coaches frequently talk about its importance. Being effective at team rebounding means extra possessions on offense, which could mean a better chance for that big win.

Off the subject for a moment, there is something else that is noticeable in Juneuary basketball that you do not see in January basketball. The answer will be at the end. See if you can think what it is along the way.

Free Throw Shooting 101 From a Self-Proclaimed Expert
May 30, 2021 10:57 AM

I mentioned last week that it was impressive to watch teams play as hard as they are with no end result to the 2021 season. The sense of urgency has been on display on every basketball floor. That deserves a “Job Well Done” to all players and coaches from the C-Teams, on up.

Offenses are in gear now. Defenses can be stingy. Three-pointers are flowing. But there is one part of their game that, maybe, has not come on strong yet. And, for good reason. That would be free-throw shooting!

Different Start to the Season; Different Start to the Game
May 23, 2021 11:22 AM

Have you ever gone to a game and been busy talking, or paying attention to something else, then look up and say, “Hey, I missed the jump ball!” Well, now, at least for this season, you may have to say, “Hey, I missed the sideline-inbounds!”

Welcome to Basketball Season; Courts are in Session
May 16, 2021 3:01 PM

Yes, basketball courts are finally in session in Whatcom and Skagit Counties, which encompass the Northwest Conference. Instead of splitting the season at New Year’s, this basketball season will end the school year. It’s a little off, but it’s here.

WIAA Athletics Plan for 2020-21 School Year
Jul 22, 2020 8:35 PM

Since the early cancellation of the 2020 school year and its spring sports season, the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association has been working feverishly to come up with an activity plan for the 2020-21 school year. That plan was released Tuesday, July 21. And while it is great to look at and imagine future scenarios, any part of it can be changed, or eliminated, depending on the path of the Covid-19 virus.

This week will mark the end of the regular season for 2A and 3A football teams, while the 1A Merry-Go-Round will finish a week later.

The news of the week in 2A is that Friday’s Lake Division city rivalry between Bellingham and Sehome will not be played. Sehome will be awarded a win by forfeit, as Bellingham will be unable to field a full team.
