Banks (24-3) vs Marist (17-8)

The Braves who have been at or near the top of the rankings all season head to the state tournament after defeating Newport in the round of 16.  Banks' three losses have come to Pendleton (5A state tournament) & twice to Seaside in Cowapa League play.  They are lead by senior post Blake Gobel, a skilled & athletic 6'8 big man who recently committed to play football at Eastern Washington.  Jacob Slifka, a sharp shooting 6'4 wing is the other primary scorer for Banks.  Marist makes the state tournament in their first year back at class 4A, got here by making the 7 hour road trip to defeat Baker in the first round.  Leading the Spartans are a pair of talented guards in junior Nick Stice & senior Max Whittaker.


Prediction:  Many believe that Banks was the best team in 4A last season & would have won
