Curtis beats Jackson to take state championship

Curtis High School’s boys basketball team defeated Jackson High School 60-56 in the 4A state championship game at the Tacoma Dome on Saturday, March 2, 2013.

Rich Myhre of the Everett Herald reports, “After trailing by 12 points late in the third quarter, Jackson pulled within one three times in the final period, the last time at 57-56 on a pair of free throws by guard Dan Kingma with nine seconds on the clock.”

“But Curtis guard Dominique Jordan followed with two free throws to push the margin back to three points. And when Jackson tried to set up a potential game-tying 3-point attempt on its final possession, guard Jason Todd fumbled the ball and Curtis came up with a steal.”

“Curtis forward Jaurence Chisolm added a free throw with a second to play for the final four-point margin.”

“Jackson was led in scoring by Kingma, who shrugged off a difficult first half (no points, three turnovers) to finish with 18 points, including 10 in the last minute and a half.”

“Forward Brian Zehr added 15 points and Todd, who shrugged off a second-half left ankle injury to finish the game, scored 10 points to go with nine rebounds.”
