"We had a little bit of trouble with pressure," said coach Steve Potter.

"It was decent pressure, but when we ran our stuff when we practiced, we got good shots and then we kind of got away from it."

Dimond got on a run, scoring 13 to JDHS' 6 in the third quarter.

"We weren't able to make up the ground," Potter said.

JDHS shot 41 percent for the game.

"We shot better than we have been," Potter said. "But still, we were 6 for 21 on threes, and that's just not good enough."

Dimond's Colten Lauwers did well, scoring 25 points.

JDHS Senior Dominique Brinson had a nice game, leading JDHS with 15 points.

"He got some foul trouble on the third quarter there," Potter said, "and I think we really missed him, when Dimond put that run on us."

JDHS missed Brinson's presence on the defensive end and as a scorer, Potter said.

"So hopefully we'll be able to keep him out of foul trouble tomorrow," Potter said.

Junior Eric Gross had 12 points. He was 6 for 8 shooting.

"(Gross) was a presence inside," Potter said. "Obviously, we probably should have gotten him the ball a little bit more."

"On a positive note, Justin Gunderson and Corey Mahar scored their first varsity points in the game," Potter said.

JDHS boys play West Anchorage at the Alaska Airlines tournament.

"West will do a lot of the same things," Potter said. "They have a one-two-two press, just like Dimond did. Hopefully we understand what we need to do a little bit tomorrow."
