February 19th, 2013 at Tue, 19th, 2013 at 12:45 pm by Megan Managan

This weekend teams around the state will play in the regional basketball games.

Both the Mercer Island boys and girls will play, the girls on Friday night and the boys on Saturday afternoon.

The Mercer Island girls earned the No. 4 seed out of the district tournament and will face Everett, the No. 1 team from District 1. The Islander girls will play at 8 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 22 at Glacier Peak High School in Snohomish.

The boys team earned the No. 3 seed and will face the No. 2 team from District 3/4 which will be Timberline. That game will be played on Saturday, Feb. 23 at 4 p.m. at Mt. Tahoma High School in Tacoma.

The games are loser out and the winner will advance to the quarterfinals of the state tournament, which begins on Thursday, Feb. 28 at the Tacoma Dome.

After the boys regional games are finished the WIAA will do draws for the quarterfinals to see who plays who in the first round of games at the Tacoma Dome.
