Several words have been used to describe the 2021-22 Lapwai boys basketball team: dominant, exciting,  breathtaking, historic.

Appropriately enough, Titus Yearout only needed one word to describe Lapwai's 88-46 triumph over league rival Kamiah for the 1AD1 state championship Saturday: "Amazing."

Yearout led the Wildcats to a repeat performance as the top team in 1AD1 basketball in his final game as a Lapwai player.  After graduating this spring, he will continue his basketball career at the University of Idaho.

Yearout finished 7-of-9 from the floor, including 3-of-4 from three-point range, on his way to 21 points.  Two separate two-handed dunks punctuated the solid all-around performance, which also included seven rebounds, five assists and three steals.

Sophomore Kase Wynott led the Lapwai offense with 30 total points.  He also pulled down seven rebounds and grabbed three steals.  The Yearout-Wynott combo has been unstoppable over the last two years, and Wynott's ability to pile up the points has allowed Yearout to develop that solid all-around game.

"My freshman and sophomore years we finished second and third.  I was doing a lot of the scoring, but it wasn't enough," Yearout said.  "My junior and senior years, we had more of a team.  We all stuck together and did our part, and my part was becoming more of a vocal and all-around leader."

Wynott will be back next year to lead the Wildcats in their attempt to three-peat.  He'll be joined by starting point guard Terrell Ellenwood-Jones and Titus' younger brother, Ahlius Yearout.  Which means that Lapwai's run of dominance doesn't appear to be ending anytime soon.

That Yearout name is still coming," Titus said.  "I've got seven siblings, and I'm the oldest."

For Kamiah, the result was all too familiar: a loss to their Whitepine League rivals, the fourth this season.  But the Kubs have Everett Skinner and David Kludt returning to anchor the Kubs again next year.  Kludt, only a freshman, led Kamiah with 11 points.  Skinner finished right behind with 10.

But for now, Lapwai remains the team to beat, not just up north, but throughout the state of Idaho.  The championship was the 12th in Lapwai High School history.  Titus Yearout is just the latest in a long line of Lapwai standouts.

"It's an honor," Yearout said.  "To put on the Lapwai jersey and go out there and win, and show what we can do (feels great).  We're gonna go back and celebrate, and have our parade, it's going to be good."
