We’re back. I apologize for neglecting the blog for the past week, but we’ve been busy putting together the prep basketball previews.

Which leads to this question: With the first couple games being played the last two weeks, who do you like to win the state championship this season?

Who do you think are the top boys and girls teams in the South Sound? Who are the top players?

I’ll start the discussion. I think by far the best player I’ve seen in Federal Way’s Terrell Smith.

A great shooter who can get to the rack and finish, Smith is headed to the University of the Pacific next year. He scored 37 in the South Sound Classic against Mt. Tahoma, and poured in 44 against Kent-Meridian. Listen to Smith talk about how the Eagles will be this year here.

I also saw Auburn Riverside’s Stephanie Wilber play. The 6-foot-1 wing headed to Arizona State is the real deal, and is one of the reasons people are talking about the Ravens winning a Class 3A girls basketball title.

Wilber talks about that among other things during an interview with her after the Ravens’ win over White River here.

You can view highlights from this year’s South Sound Classic by checking out this link .

Also, if you haven’t seen this week’s prep previews check them out here.

Let us know what you think about some of the top teams and players, and check out the blog next week for The News Tribune’s Top 10 rankings, along with our wrestling preview debuting next week.
