Washington has lost just two boys basketball games on its home floor this season.

Unfortunately for the Blue Jays, those losses came against GAC Central foes, which knocked them out of the conference championship hunt.

Points were hard to come by for the Blue Jays in a Tuesday setback to Ft. Zumwalt South, 47-34.

Washington’s other home loss came on Feb. 8 against Ft. Zumwalt North, 58-56.

“North and South both are very good teams,” said Washington Head Coach Chip Sodemann. “We were just a possession or two from beating North last week. We just gave South too many extra possessions with turnovers and allowing offensive rebounds. You can’t do that against good teams.”

The Blue Jays (15-9, 3-4) played their final league game Friday at Holt. They end the regular season Wednesday at home against Oakville for senior night.

FZN (17-5, 6-0) played FZS (17-5, 6-1) Friday in a game that likely will decide the league champion.

Washington’s game against FZS was close all the way until the Bulldogs began to pull away in the fourth quarter.

Ft. Zumwalt South held leads of 14-9 after one quarter, 21-18 at halftime and 30-24 after three quarters.

The Bulldogs sealed the win with a 17-10 fourth-quarter run.

Ronnie Suggs led the way for Washington with 15 points, six rebounds and three assists.

Luke Schroepfer added six points, six rebounds and two steals.

Patrick Menke also scored six points.

Brad Carpenter netted three points. Jacob Mulkey and Jared Walde both scored two points. Walde, playing a bit under the weather, added five rebounds.

“We’ve relied on Walde a lot this year. We’re going to miss his rebounding next year,” Sodemann said. “We need help from our guards in crashing the boards against the better teams.”

Luke Hasenjaeger and Austin Subke also played.

Preston Whitfield led three Bulldogs in double figures with 16 points, four assists and three steals.

Marshawn Blackmon added 11 points and eight rebounds.

Matt Galvin had 10 points and six assists.

“Once we got our defense established, it wasn’t bad. South came in averaging 59 points a game and we allowed 47,” Sodemann said. “You can’t defend turnovers and you can’t give up offensive rebounds. That’s a recipe for a rough night. We have to play with more urgency for the rest of the season.”

Washington is the top seed for the Class 5 District 10 Tournament Feb. 23-28 at Rolla High School.

The Blue Jays open in the semifinals Feb. 26 against either Northwest or Lebanon at 6 p.m. The title game is Feb. 28 at 7:30 p.m.

Rolla is seeded second followed by Waynesville, Northwest and Lebanon.
