The Irish jumped on the Lancers early and led throughout the elimination game.

O’Dea guard Jalen Ward scored a team-high 19 points, making 8 of 19 shots. Forward Jacob Lampkin turned in a double-double, totaling 10 points and 11 rebounds, and guard Sekou Wiggs added 12 points, eight rebounds and five assists.

The Irish (21-8) led 24-18 at halftime and pulled away in the third quarter when they outpaced Kennedy Catholic 24-14.

Forward Mitch Penner poured in 21 points – he went 13 for 14 from the free-throw line – and grabbed nine rebounds for the Lancers (21-5).

O’Dea will play Lake Washington at 8 a.m. Saturday in the fourth-/sixth-place game.
