The high school season came to an end with the WIAA Hardwood Classic state tournament championships on Saturday, March 7th at the Tacoma Dome.  Noticeably each year the Bigs are becoming more and more deadly not only in the paint but contributing just as much shooting mid to long-range.  Here are the standout Bigs from this year’s state tournament.  While a few of them it was their last dance, excited to see that most of them will be returning next season!


Tari EasonTariEason6'8" | PFGarfield | 2020State#99NationWA, Garfield |6’8 F |Class of 2020|- This tourney MVP averaged 21ppg, 12rebs, and 3.6a in the state playoffs.  There is not much Eason can’t do; with his size, strength, quickness and now a deadly 3 ball very difficult to match up to him this year.  He is unstoppable in the paint and on the fast break with either creating for his teammates or finishing.  He has an impressive assist count for a Big as well.   Even from just last year he has had a tremendous upside and for sure will continue to excel for Cincinnati next year.
