Foss High's Dezmyn Trent, right, and the Falcons should give Narrows 3A favorite Lincoln all it can handle this season.


1, Lincoln
Top-five program adds Rorie; 3A title?
2, Foss
Not ready to concede lead dog role in city.
3, Wilson
Rebuilding? Young talent means reloading.
4, Enumclaw
Most physical and experienced in SPSL 3A.
5, Lakes
Lots of personnel movement, but still talented.


* Crystal Ball
1, Enumclaw (7-15)
2, Lakes (14-8)
3, Auburn Mountainview (13-10)
4, Decatur (18-7)
5, Bonney Lake (10-12)
6, Peninsula (3-17)

* Fab Five
Tony Chynoweth, Enumclaw, G/F, 6-3, Sr.
A premier perimeter scorer who does not take a bad shot. Is that possible?

Keith Green, Auburn Mountainview, G, 5-10, Sr.
Only 135 pounds, he is very quick, creative and decisive in Lions’ attack.

Jordan Johnson, Lakes, G/F, 6-4, Sr.
Above-the-rim, do-everything standout who really gives Lancers energy.

Derek Lund, Bonney Lake, G, 5-9, Sr.
No team will rely more on one talented player – Lund – than the Panthers.

Jason Young, Decatur, F, 6-2, Sr.
Next go-to guy up for perennial playoff contenders – and league champions.

* Circle the Calendar
Jan. 22, Enumclaw at Lakes, 7 p.m.


* Crystal Ball
1, Lincoln (18-9)
2, Foss (17-8)
3, Wilson (20-4)
4, Timberline (7-13)
5, Mount Tahoma (4-16 in Narrows 4A)
6, North Thurston (18-7 in 2A EvCo)
7, Shelton (2-18 in Narrows 4A)

* Fab Five
Donaven Dorsey, Timberline, G/F, 6-5, Jr.
Come watch – a star waiting to make a highlight-reel play on every series.

Tre’Shaun Fletcher, Lincoln, F, 6-6, Sr.
Smooth as silk on the perimeter, Colorado signee almost too unselfish.

Ahmaad Rorie, Lincoln, G, 6-0, Jr.
Another point guard with high scoring capability; California commit.

Ivy Smith Jr., Wilson, G, 5-8, So.
With seven underclassmen seeing playing time, he leads youth movement.

Dezmyn Trent, Foss, F, 6-4, Sr.
Not mean, just ultra-competitive – and can dominate a game in many ways.

* Circle the Calendar
Jan. 15, Lincoln at Foss, 7 p.m.
