SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — Terrence Williams had atriple-double with 27 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists, leading Rainier Beach into the championship game of the Mission Prep Christmas Classic with a 63-41 rout of Carson, Calif., last night.


The Vikings (7-2) will play ThunderRidge of Highlands Ranch, Colo., for the title in the 22-team tournament tonight at 9. ThunderRidge beat St. Stephen’s/St. Agnes of Alexandria, Va., 70-58 in the other semifinal.


Williams, a 6-foot-6 senior headed to Louisville next season, also blocked two shots. The Vikings led by only a point at halftime, but Williams ignited a second-half Beach surge by scoring 15 points in the third quarter.


“Williams really pounded the offensive boards hard,” said Rainier Beach coach Mike Bethea. “Midway through the third quarter, he had a dunk that united the whole team, and we just rolled from there.”


James Morgan, a 6-9 senior forward, had 10 rebounds and five blocks for the Vikings. Ryan Anderson, who scored 32 points in Beach’s first-round victory over Calabasas, Calif., scored 12 points and Emeka Ieweka 10.
