Viking senior Jack Weyer hit the go-ahead layup as the Inglemoor High boys basketball team picked up a huge conference win over Issaquah on Tuesday in Kenmore.
Weyer scored on an inbounds play — the ball passed in to Jalen Woodley, then swung to Chinedu Ugokwoli, who dumped down low to Weyer for an off-balance shot at the rim.
Weyer finished with a team-high 15 points in the win for Inglemoor, which has been on a roll as of late. The Vikings (5-4 KingCo, 6-8) started the year with seven losses in their first nine games, but have won four of five and three straight, including wins over Skyline, Bothell and Issaquah.
Skyline, Bothell and Issaquah are the top three teams in the conference standings, but with five games to play, Inglemoor is still within reach of the top spot.
Ryan Hamilton scored eight points for Inglemoor on Tuesday. Ugokwoli had eight rebounds and three assists.
