MARYSVILLE — The Marysville-Pilchuck boys basketball team grinded out a 3A North League game with cross-town rival Marysville Getchell Jan. 12, in which the Tomahawks prevailed 49-46.

“A lot of credit for the Getchell Chargers — they brought it,” M-P coach Bary Gould said. “But then again our guys ended up prevailing and that’s the perseverance and resiliency that we try to preach.”

M-P was ahead but only by 27-24 at halftime. MG was always hot on M-P’s heel, but the Tomahawks defense helped keep the lead, Gould said.

“We put some pressure on them in third quarter, and they started to turn the ball over a little bit, and we were able to score,” Gould said.

M-P’s Josh Bevan led M-P with 12 points, and Collin Montez of MG led with 16. M-P’s record improved to 3-8, and MG’s fell to 6-6. M-P will play at Oak Harbor Jan. 19 at 7:15 p.m., and MG hosts Stanwood Jan 19 at 7:15 p.m.

TULALIP — Adiyah Jones scored a game-high 22 points, and teammate Aliyah Jones added 15 to take the Tulalip girls basketball to a 63-10 win over Orcas Christian Jan. 11. Adiyah Jones again led with 20 points in Tulalip’s win over Grace Academy Jan. 13.

The Hawks are undefeated at 11-0 and play at Lopez Jan. 19 at 4:45 p.m.

TULALIP — The Tulalip boys basketball team lost to Orcas Christian 65-33 Jan. 11. The Hawks record fell 5-6. They play Lopez Jan. 19 at 6:15 p.m.
