If the playoffs started today, both Coupeville High School varsity hoops teams would be postseason-bound.

That being said, there’s still a lot of games to played over the next three weeks.

The Wolf girls, who are solidly camped in third-place in the six-team North Sound Conference, have five games left on their regular-season schedule.

Meanwhile, the CHS boys, who are hanging onto the fifth and final playoff berth right now, still have six more rumbles.

Both teams play twice this coming week, with three of the four games live in the Coupeville gym.

The girls kick off a four-game home-stand Tuesday against Granite Falls, then go for the season sweep of South Whidbey Friday night.

Coupeville’s boys will be back on the bus Tuesday, traveling to Bothell to face Cedar Park Christian.

After that, they also return to Whidbey, with a Friday match-up against their next door neighbors a biggie.

As we head into a new week, with the fate of teams starting to be decided, a look at where we are, through Jan. 13:

 

North Sound Conference girls basketball:

School League Overall
King’s 5-0 10-4
CPC-Bothell 4-1 8-5
Coupeville 3-2 5-7
Granite Falls 2-3 4-10
Sultan 1-4 5-9
South Whidbey 0-5 2-12

 

North Sound Conference boys basketball:

School League Overall
King’s 5-0 11-4
Sultan 3-1 4-8
CPC-Bothell 2-2 6-8
South Whidbey 2-2 9-5
Coupeville 1-3 2-9
Granite Falls 0-5 2-12

From here on out, every game is big.

As the second part of the 2018-2019 high school basketball season gets fully underway this coming week, both Coupeville squads have the chance to make statements.

The Wolf girls, who sit in a second-place tie, a game off of top dog King’s, travel Tuesday to Bothell and Friday to Sultan.

The first game pits them against Cedar Park Christian, the school they’re tied with, while the second gives them a chance to sweep the season series from the Turks.

Meanwhile, the CHS boys, who are sitting a bit further down in the standings, host Granite Falls Tuesday before joining the trek to Sultan.

A win in the home game, which pits the bottom two teams in the league standings, would propel the Wolves a game-and-a-half up on Granite.

While there’s still plenty of season to play, having that edge could be a huge confidence booster, as five of six league teams make the playoffs.

As we head into a new week, a look at where we are, through Jan. 6:

Things are really starting to click.

Both Coupeville High School basketball squads are on the rise, though the circumstances are a bit different.

The Wolf boys broke into the win column Friday, edging Concrete thanks to big play from big man Ulrik Wells.

Meanwhile, the CHS girls have won three of four, including running away from arch-rival South Whidbey in their North Sound Conference opener.

That puts the Wolves in a tie atop the (very) early league standings, with a second conference clash coming up fast – Tuesday at home against Sultan.

The key for David King’s squad of recent? An offense that has suddenly been turbo-charged.

Coupeville tossed in 50 points against South Whidbey, then topped that with 53 two nights later vs. Concrete.

It’s the first time a Wolf varsity girls team has topped 50 points since Feb. 6, 2016, and the back-to-back net-burners is an even rarer occurrence.

CHS put together four consecutive 50+ point games between Jan. 30 and Feb. 9, 2015, smashing its way through Olympic League rivals Klahowya (twice), Chimacum and Port Townsend.

That 2014-2015 Wolf team, which won the first of three consecutive OL titles, while going undefeated each season, scored 50 or more in nine games, doing the deed six times in seven games at one point.

Whether this year’s squad can match that is an unknown, but for now, Coupeville is content to bask in the moment.

Next week brings two games for the Wolf boys (road trips to face non-conference foes Port Townsend and Nooksack Valley), while the CHS girls play three times.

The home match-up with Sultan is the big one, before a home game against PT and their own trip to Nooksack.

As we head towards those games, a look at where we are, through Dec. 16:

School League Overall
Coupeville 1-0 3-4
Granite Falls 1-0 2-4
King’s 1-0 2-3

The early returns have not been awe-inspiring.

Two weeks or so into a new basketball season, 11 of 12 North Sound Conference varsity hoops teams have a losing record.

The only one which doesn’t, the South Whidbey boys, have scrambled back to .500 in recent days.

Overall, NSC girls teams are 7-22 against non-league foes, while the boys squads are just 4-22.

But wins are coming this week, and that’s guaranteed.

How, you ask?

Because all 12 teams play their first league game this coming week, so, barring any soccer-style ties, we’ll have some (very) early front-runners atop the standings.

Tuesday brings’s Kings vs. Cedar Park and Granite Falls vs. Sultan in girls action, and CPC vs South Whidbey and Sultan vs. Coupeville in boys play.

The Coupeville and South Whidbey girls clash Wednesday, with the Granite Falls and King’s boys waging war Friday.

Around those first league games, there’s still a fair amount of non-conference action left to play out.

For Coupeville, it starts with a doubleheader Friday at Concrete.

After that first league game Tuesday, the Wolf boys don’t play a conference foe again until Jan., while the CHS girls host Sultan Dec. 18, then also wait until the new year for the majority of their league schedule.

 

Through Dec. 9:

 

North Sound Conference girls basketball:

School League Overall
COUPEVILLE 0-0 1-4
CPC-Bothell 0-0 2-3

No undefeated teams.

That’s a guarantee, as all 12 North Sound Conference basketball teams have taken at least one loss after the first week of the season.

In fact, the early non-conference schedule has not been kind, with NSC girls teams combining to go 2-11, while the boys are 1-10.

Heck, even the King’s girls and their all-world freshman are sitting at 0-2, after absorbing losses to Moses Lake and Cashmere.

But we plow ahead, with another week full of games set to unfold.

Coupeville’s hoops squads have three games in the next six days, with road trips Monday to Sequim and Saturday to Orcas Island, wrapped around a home doubleheader Wednesday with Friday Harbor.

Onward and upward, ever in pursuit of a few more wins.
