It is obvious both the Juneau-Douglas Crimson Bears and the Colony Knights will be playing in the Saturday night title game at the state basketball championships in Anchorage’s Sullivan Arena. That will come next season however, as their matchup on Saturday was in the third/fifth-place game of the 2012 tournament.
“It is just another rung on the ladder,” Colony coach Jeff Bowker said. “We are all back next year, they are all back next year, Soldotna is all back next year. You look at the state tournament next year and it is just like this one.”
