District & State Basketball |'s Photos of the Week

Normally we don't get into the whole "theme" thing, but prep basketball has so dominated our sports coverage this week that we relented. Teams from around the state wrapped up district playoffs throughout the week and kicked off the opening rounds of the state tournament.

Reporters at the Bellevue Reporter and Issaquah Reporter have been live blogging some of the games in an effort to bring the action to those of you who can't make the trip. More games will be live blogged as teams advance, so stay tuned to both papers' sports sections.

In the meantime, enjoy some of the shots our photographers have taken over the last week and vote on which is/are your favorite.
