Can we reach 3,000? Probably.

With eight more regular season games left on the schedule, then likely playoff runs for both varsity teams, Coupeville High School hoops stars have already combined to ripple the net for 2,611 points and counting.

Whatcha gonna do when the Wolves come for you?  (Bailey Thule photo)

The round robin decides everything.

While Coupeville High School basketball teams, and their closest rivals, can play up to 20 regular season games, only four of those rumbles dictate playoff participation.

The Northwest 2B/1B League currently houses four 1B schools — Darrington, Orcas Island, Concrete, and Mount Vernon Christian — and three 2B institutions — Coupeville, La Conner, and Friday Harbor.

When the postseason arrives, 2B and 1B split off and go their own ways.

For basketball, all four 1B schools make the playoffs, which began Thursday.

When it comes to 2B hoops, however, you have to be top two to get the call, since there are a lot less 2B schools in the region, making for a smaller postseason tourney.

Those two NWL teams, repping District 1, pair off with District 2’s Auburn Adventist Academy and Northwest Christian (Lacey), at bi-districts Feb. 13-18.

That event, held at Coupeville High School, offers two tickets to state for the boys this year and one for the girls.

D1/2 will get two state berths for the girls next year. Allegedly.

With that in mind, La Conner swept a pair of home games from Friday Harbor on Friday night, which officially clinches three of the four playoff berths.

On the boys’ side, Coupeville and La Conner are in, while Friday Harbor is eliminated after the Wolverines blew a 20-point lead and fell 59-57 to the Braves.

On the girls’ side, La Conner is in after a 65-18 romp, with Coupeville and Friday Harbor still fighting for the other spot.

Seeding is still up for grabs on both sides, however.

Coupeville closes the regular season next week, hosting La Conner Tuesday, Feb. 7, before island-hopping to Friday Harbor Feb. 10.

The Wolf boys clinch the #1 seed with a win in that first game.

Meanwhile, Coupeville’s girls need to sweep both games next week to have a shot at being #1 but need just a victory over Friday Harbor — who they beat 47-27 first time around — to claim the #2 seed.

If there any ties, teams will play a tiebreaker game, at a neutral site, Saturday, Feb. 11.

 

Where the round-robin sits heading into the final week:

 

Boys basketball:

School Vs. 2B
Coupeville 2-0
La Conner 2-1
Friday Harbor 0-3

 

Girls basketball:

School Vs. 2B
La Conner 3-0
Coupeville 1-1
Friday Harbor 0-3

They scored big buckets, and big bucks.

Coupeville High School basketball teams won three of four games Friday night during their first home games in two weeks.

Making the night even sweeter, the Wolves, and their fans, raised nearly $1,000 for cancer research.

Taking part in their annual Coaches vs. Cancer event, this year renamed Coupeville vs. Cancer, CHS brought in $955 thanks to fundraising efforts.

The money was donated to the V Foundation for Cancer Research, which was founded by legendary college basketball coach Jim Valvano.

With a little help from current Wolf cheerleaders, Coupeville’s youth cheer squad ruled the hardwood. (Photos by JohnsPhotos.net)

Tomorrow’s cheerleaders were ready for their closeups today.

After putting in the practice, 30 junior cheer participants took control of the hardwood Friday at halftime of the Coupeville High School boys’ basketball game.

Working with the current Wolf cheerleaders, the young women wearing “Power Cheer” shirts debuted to the click-click-click of a million lil’ cameras.

One of those belonged to John Fisken, who delivers us the pics seen above and below.

The net keeps poppin’, the points keep droppin’.

Coupeville High School basketball players have combined to ring up 2,475 points this season, stretching across varsity and JV contests.

So far, we have six players — four boys and two girls — having topped 100 points, with a bunch more coming up fast.

Now, those with access to more detailed computerized stats can track rebounds, assists, steals, blocks, even the number of offensive charges drawn while playing defense.

Me? I can count points, most days, and scoring is the lifeblood of basketball, so here you go.
