Fans of local high school basketball teams can get their fill of playoff action this week as the WIAA has finalized – almost – the schedule of their state tournament regional round match-ups for Friday and Saturday, Feb. 24-25.

The Edmonds-Woodway Warrior boys and girls teams have earned spots in the regional round, but won’t know their opponents or where or when their games will take place until Tuesday night.

In 3A girls basketball competition, the Lynnwood Royals will play Saturday, 6 p.m. at Bothell High School against either E-W or the Mt. Spokane Wildcats. Seeding of the 3A girls regional games won’t be confirmed until after two loser-out crossover games – Mt. Spokane vs. Rainier Beach and Kamiakin vs. Garfield – are completed on Tuesday.

If the Warriors aren’t matched up against Lynnwood, then they will head to Bellevue College on Saturday to face the West Seattle Wildcats at noon.

The Edmonds-Woodway boys’ schedule for this week is also waiting to be firmed up. The Warriors will face either the Squalicum Storm on Friday, 6 p.m., at Mount Vernon High School or the Shorecrest Scots on Saturday, 4 p.m., at Bothell High School. E-W’s matchup will be determined by the result of the loser-out crossover game between Kamiakin and Bellevue on Tuesday.

The regional games in the 2A boys bracket are set with the Mountlake Terrace Hawks scheduled to face the Clover Park Warriors in a loser-out contest on Saturday, 2 p.m., at Mount Tahoma High School in Tacoma.

Cedar Park Christian – Mountlake Terrace has qualified both its boys and girls teams for the regional round of the WIAA 1B State Basketball Tournament. The Lions’ boys squad will take on Odessa-Harrington in a loser-out game set for Friday, 6 p.m., at Mountlake Terrace High School. The Lady Lions will follow at MTHS at 8 p.m. in a matchup against undefeated Tacoma Baptist.
