Bothell senior Josh Martin helped his team to the 4A Regional round as a senior while earning 4A KingCo Player of the Year honors, and recently picked up another accolade for his final prep season.

Martin was named to the Washington squad's roster for the 20th annual Northwest Shootout, an event featuring boys and girls basketball games pitting prep senior standouts from Washington against their counterparts from Oregon.

Martin was the only player from a 4A KingCo school named to the Washington boys team.

The 20th annual Northwest Shootout is scheduled for April 26 at Liberty High School in Hillsboro, Ore.

The girls game begins at 4 p.m., followed by the boys game, and tickets are $10 ($5 for students). Proceeds from the game go to benefit community grants and scholarships in the Portland area.

A host of future NBA and Division I collegiate players have participated in the game in the past, including Nate Robinson, Terrell Brandon, Mike Dunleavy and Shoni and Jude Schimmel.
