WCD Basketball Playoffs - Round 1

The Curtis Vikings started the WIAA Basketball Playoffs at home. Hosting what was their last game in the gym, which is to soon be replaced, the Viks went out with a message! Racking up a 30+ point lead over the Lincoln Abes by the 2nd half. (An interesting note, Curtis' Head Coach Tim Kelly previously lead the Abes to 2 State Titles in 2001 and 2002).

The Vikings are half way to the state tournament. They will play one more game tonight at Puyallup against Mount Tahoma. With a win Curtis will gain a seed in the WIAA Playoffs.

The energy was intense on the court and in the stands! A rowdy and often humorous crowd will need to continue to win momentum for the Vikings tonight!

Lui Kit Wong from THE NEWS TRIBUNE gets in close for the pre-game huddle. Lui took some great photographs using the powerful ISO abilities of the the new Nikon D700.

Even with daring acrobatics to save balls Lincoln never stood a chance. The Vikings defense caused numerous turnovers as well as headache for the Abes.

The fans went nuts following Stan Langlows dunk near the end of the first half!

#0 Darnell Williams finishes strong to the basket scoring even in the most difficult circumstances AND draws a foul.
