Ketchikan's Alex Pihl dribbles around a pick by teammate Mo Bullock as Juneau-Douglas' Adam Empson defends during Region V basketball action at JDHS on Wednesday night.

The Juneau-Douglas High School boys basketball team fell behind 14-2 in the first quarter and 21-8 at the half against the Ketchikan Kings and could not make up the difference in a 50-38 loss to open the Region V basketball tournament Wednesday night at JDHS.

Ketchikan hit just 19-42 from the charity stripe in the game (14-31 in the fourth quarter) but still had enough to carry the win.

JDHS’ Kaleb Tompkins, Kevin Guimmayen and Gunnar Schultz carried the Crimson Bears in the second half.

Tompkins and Schultz tallied five points each in a 14-6 third quarter run that put JDHS within five points at the end of the stanza, 27-22.

Bryce Swofford closed the score to three points at 29-26 and Tompkins added a basket to keep it at three again with 31-28.

The Crimson Bears picked up the pressure, but Kayhi responded with a 19-10 run to end the game.

Tompkins led the Crimson Bears with 9 points, Guimmayen added 8, Schultz 7, Swofford and Nathan Klein 4 apiece, Rahul Chhabria and Adam Empson 3 each.

JDHS hit 7-12 from the line.

Alex Pihl led Kayhi with 18 points, Isaiah Navales added 12, Mo Bullock 9, Ned Day 5, Colton Paulsen 4 and Malik Almenzor 2.

“They rattled our cages a little in the third quarter,” Pihl told the Ketchikan Daily News. “But that is why we have intense practices for moments like these.”

Ketchikan advances to play top seed Thunder Mountain at 5 p.m. tonight. JDHS plays at 1:15 p.m. Friday in an elimination game against the loser of TMHS/KTN.

Free Throw Disparity?

Ketchikan went to the line 42 times vs JDHS' 12? Something seems amiss there.
