Shoreline opened the tournament with a 100-93 loss to Mt. Hood Community College from Oregon, the #1 seed from the NWAACC Southern Region. The Dolphins were sent to the consolation bracket of the 16 team tournament and faced Walla Walla Community College and defeated WWCC 96-94 on a last second shot by Avery Scharer. Shoreline then faced Lower Columbia College in the consolation semi-finals and defeated the Red Devils 80-77 and that victory sent SCC to play its Northern Region rival, Bellevue in the consolation finals (and 7th place in the tournament).

SCC was the only NWAACC Northern Region team to win 3 games at the tournament, as #1 seed, Whatcom, was 0-2, #2 seed Peninsula went 2-2 (finished 4th) and Bellevue finished 2-2.

Shoreline finished the season 19-12 overall, 10-6 in the region and went into the tournament as the #4 seed from the Northern Region.
