Isaac Dotson, 6-3, Sr., Newport. WSU football signee is one of area's best all-around players.

Daryon James, 6-1, Sr., Jefferson. Scored at least 20 in four of last five games, including 31 in last outing.

Trevaunté Williams, 6-5, Sr., Garfield. Averages 15 points; as skilled as they come near basket.

CLASS 4A GIRLS

MUST-SEE GAMES

• No. 6 Arlington (29-4) vs. No. 7 Beamer (20-5), Puyallup H.S., 6 p.m. Friday. Young Beamer team enjoying historic season, and might not be done.

• Kentwood (18-6) vs. No. 3 Lynnwood (22-1), Jackson H.S., 8 p.m. Friday. Athletic teams could combine for a lot of points.

• Union (18-8) vs. No. 4 Gonzaga Prep (21-3), Rogers (Puyallup) H.S., 6 p.m. Friday. Check out how just good G-Prep might be.

MUST-SEE PLAYERS

Brittany McPhee, 6-0, Jr., Mount Rainier. Might score 30 if top-ranked Rams need her to.

Haley Smith, 6-1, Sr., Skyline. Colorado commit does a little of everything.

Brooke Pahukoa, 5-9, Sr., Lake Stevens. One of state's best shooters, even with dislocated finger.
