TACOMA, Wash. (AP) -- Curtis opened the fourth quarter on an 8-0 run and pulled away from Newport for a 62-40 victory in the Class 4A quarterfinals Thursday at the Tacoma Dome.
 

Senior guard Dominic Robinson scored a game-high 18 points for the Vikings (25-2), who advance to the semifinals on Friday.
 

Isaac Dotson led Newport (18-9) with 14 points and five rebounds, but picked up his fourth foul with 3:37 left in the third quarter. The Knights, who won five loser-out games to get into the tournament, will play in a consolation game Friday.
