No. 4 Jackson beats Shorecrest, improves to 15-1 | Prep Boys Basketball

In a game with two likely Division I college recruits, Kingma's Timberwolves got the best of Bone's alma mater as Jackson beat Shorecrest on Friday night, 61-50.

Special to The Seattle Times

SHORELINE — Jackson junior guard Brett Kingma pulled up for one of his customary deep threes. Directly behind him, in the first row of bleachers, sat Washington State men's basketball coach Ken Bone.

The ball dropped through the net for the first of Kingma's five three-pointers, and Bone looked up wide-eyed and mouthed, "Whoa!"

In a game with two likely Division I college recruits, Kingma's Timberwolves got the best of Bone's alma mater as Jackson beat Shorecrest on Friday night, 61-50.

The Timberwolves (15-1, 13-1 WesCo South), who shot only 34 percent in each half, swept the season series. Kingma, averaging 25 points, scored 29. He was 12 of 30 from the field with eight rebounds, three assists and two steals.

Jackson was without SPU-bound Ryan Todd (concussion) for the second straight game, but coach Steve Johnson said Todd is expected back next week. Seniors Marshall Massengale (six rebounds, four assists, three steals) and Mike Wishko (seven rebounds, seven steals) stepped up with 13 points apiece.

Emmanuel Chibuogwu Jr., a gifted 6-foot-6 sophomore already receiving recruiting interest, had 14 points and forward Jordan Brown scored 10 for Shorecrest.

The Scots (10-6, 9-5), who managed to shoot 46 percent overall despite going without a field goal for six minutes in the first half and four minutes in the second, lost their third straight.

"It's frustrating, because when we miss those easy ones, you can't tell the guys to execute any better — we're getting good looks," Shorecrest coach Brian Fischer said.

Kingma made his first four shots and scored Jackson's first nine points. But he missed his next nine attempts, and was scoreless the remainder of the half.

The Scots used a 14-2 run to close the half with a 30-29 lead. Shorecrest scored on seven of its final eight possessions of the half, including the last five — capped by Chibuogwu's block of a long Kingma jumper and subsequent layup with three seconds left.

Kingma gave Jackson the lead for good with a layin 40 seconds into the second half, and his 14-point third quarter helped the Timberwolves to a 47-43 lead going into the fourth.
