JDHS boys fall to Service 67-60

Posted: February 2, 2012 - 1:15am

Juneau-Douglas High School played a basketball game at Service on Wednesday night, unfortunately for the Crimson Bears their opponents were in a free-throw shooting contest.

The Cougars were awarded a fat 38 trips to the charity stripe where they sank 24. The Crimson Bears went to the line 19 times and made 12. Service picked up their fourth foul of the second half with just a minute remaining in the game. In the first half the Cougars committed 15.

JDHS lost the hoops contest 67-60 after leading at the half 36-30.

“I told our guys that you just have to play through it,” JDHS coach Robert Casperson said. “We had our chances to win the game. We missed some layups down the stretch and had some looks at jumpers. They put some pressure on us and we did not execute our press break.”

Phillip Fenumiai led the Crimson Bears with 17 points, Lance Ibesate, Austin Shoemaker and Alec Calloway had 10 each, Tony Yadao seven, Aquino Brinson and Gary Speck two each, Jeffrey Pusich and Evan Gross one each.

Service led 15-13 after one quarter.

JDHS plays at Wasilla tonight and tomorrow, and finishes with a Saturday game at Palmer.

“The whole point of this trip is too identify where we are at,” Casperson said. “And to get better from here on out. This would be a wasted experience if we didn’t learn from it. Win lose or draw. If we make corrections night-to-night to get better, that is exactly what I am looking for.”
