Howe scores 34 points to sink the Knights
Danny Howe’s career high leads the Issaquah boys to a 71-66 victory over Newport.
The shots just kept falling for Issaquah junior Danny Howe, who scored a career-high 34 points to lead the Eagles to a 71-66 road victory over the Newport Knights on Jan. 3.
Howe got the Eagles off to a great start, scoring 15 points in the opening quarter, including hitting three from beyond the arc to give them a 24-17 lead after the first 12-minutes. Issaquah head coach Brad Valentine said once Howe made a couple shots early in the contest, he knew the 6-foot-9 forward was in for a big game.
“When he’s confident, he’s one of the better kids in the league,” Valentine said. “It was like he was throwing it into the ocean at the end, he was making everything. It’s really nice to see, because he’s a hard worker and he really cares. It’s good to see him have success because he’s a genuinely good kid.”
