Coach Robert Casperson says the JDHS boys, who play in Ketchikan tonight and Saturday, played the Kings 7 times last year for an overall record of 5-2. The Crimson Bears beat them at the Dimond Prep Shootout (1-0); Twice at home for conference wins (3-0, 2-0 conf); Lost to them two times down in KTN (3-2, 2-2 conf).

JDHS got the #1 seed going into the Region V Tournament on a coin flip or blind draw from a hat or something after multiple tie-breakers were employed.

JDHS was then 2-0 against them in the Reg. V Tournament (5-2 overall).

Our JV’s were 4-0 against Ktn. last year and a lot of those players have moved into varsity roles for both teams. If that news doesn’t keep you glued to the radio or in the stands at Ketchikan there are plenty of other options for hoops this weekend. Check out the middle school Icebreakers tournament at Floyd Dryden and Dzantik’i Heeni or the junior varsity and ‘C’ team tournament at JDHS. A trifecta of hoops baby (okay, sorry, never again will Dickie V escape my lips, err, fingers)!
