Mead upsets Prep; University advances to regionals

Posted: Updated:

Both teams are still going to the Regional playoffs next week. It's just that Mead is going as No. 1 and Gonzaga Prep, who led the Greater Spokane League for most of the regular season, is going as No. 2.

Prep's come-from-behind effort fell just short Thursday night, as the Panthers upset the Bullpups 53-50. For Mead, the victory meant they won their first District 8 4A boys basketball championship since 2003.

Gonzaga Prep had a shot at tying the game at the end of regulation to force overtime, but Mead's Aaron Dunn prevented Gonzaga Prep's Chris Sarbaugh from getting a clean look at the basket.

With the win, Mead moves on as the No. 1 seed to host the No. 4 seed from the Big 9. Gonzaga Prep hosts the CBBN No. 3 seed. Both games are next Tuesday at 6 p.m.

University 72, Ferris 68: University's head coach Garrick Phillips showed his emotion on his sleeve Thursday night, as his Titans upended the Ferris Saxons 72-66 to advance to the regional playoffs for the first time in 25 years.

Kyle Bailey scored 23 for UHigh, while Chris Wilson scored 21 points for the Saxons, all of his points coming from 3-point shots.

UHigh plays on the road next Tuesday against the No. 2 seed from the Big 9.
