Lake Roosevelt 70, W-P 53: Zach Bartlow had 20 points for Waitsburg-Prescott and the Cardinals edged their opponents in the second half but it couldn't make up for the attack of Lake Roosevelt's Ty Egbert, who scored 36 points in the 2B regional winner-to-state game at Walla Walla High School.

"There was no way to defend him. We had two guys on him the whole game and he might have missed four shots," W-P coach T.J. Scott said. "He (Egbert) is 6-8 or 6-9. He's legit. He's the best 2B player we've come up against."

W-P -- Eastman 8, D. Estes 8, Zuger 6, Zach Bartlow 20, Wooderchak 3, Leroue 8, Brown, Lanning, Acevedo, Dozier, E. Estes.

LAKE ROOSEVELT -- Williams 2, Garvin 1, Atkins 6, Rosenbaum 15, Black 1, Carlson 8, Ty Egbert 36, Boutain 1.

Waitsburg-Prescott 12 7 12 22 -- 53

Lake Roosevelt 19 18 20 13 -- 70
