Bears fillet Kings

Juneau boys clobber Kayhi twice to open region play

Posted: Sunday, January 20, 2002

A three-week layoff did not hinder the Juneau-Douglas High School boys basketball squad as it rolled to two blowout wins over Ketchikan on Friday and Saturday at the JDHS main gymnasium.

Juneau won 76-38 on Friday and followed it up with a 97-52 win on Saturday to bring the Crimson Bears' overall record to 5-0 and 2-0 in Region V-Class 4A play.

Curtis Lane led the Bears in scoring Saturday with 19 points, including four 3-pointers, while Ryan Monagle added 17 points to a balanced Juneau attack that had 12 players in the scoring column both nights.

Lane, who was coming off a dismal shooting effort Friday where he shot just 1-for-8 from behind the 3-point arc, found his range early on Saturday with a 3-pointer to open the scoring in front of a sparse Juneau crowd.

"We ran a set for him," Crimson Bears head coach George Houston said. "He came off three or four screens, got open and knocked it down. It kind of ignites everyone else. But he did more than just shoot three's. He penetrated more and did some other things that helped our offense."

"After I missed my first 3-point shots on Friday, I lost my confidence," Lane said. "After you get that first one it gets easier. You live by the three, you die by the three. Sometimes you gotta do other stuff because the three's not there all the time."

 

With the exception of Lane nailing his shots, Saturday's game started out almost identical to Friday's as Juneau jumped out to a 22-6 first quarter lead and extended it to 45-24 at the half. But Ketchikan made a run early in the third and closed the gap to 50-37 with 4:35 to go in the quarter.

"It didn't seem like a blowout midway through the third quarter," Houston said. "I thought they were outplaying us then. Fortunately, we got a couple runs, pushed it back up and blew it open. In the third it didn't appear to be a dominating win. They had their chances."

Juneau responded to Ketchikan's attack with a run of their own to push the lead back to 63-40. When Ketchikan guard Braden Sharp fouled out with 7.1 seconds to go in the third, it seemed to take the breath away from the Kings and they looked like fish out of water the rest of the game.

"We just saw the chance to put them away and we took it," Juneau center Byron Wild said, who scored 14 points Saturday. "We worked not to let them back into the game."

"Juneau has a great tradition, a good program and kids that play hard," Ketchikan head coach John Brown said. "I imagine they have to be a contender for state this year. I haven't seen all the teams up north, but I'm assuming they're right up there."

Junior Cumlat had 13 points, Craig Kitka scored nine and Ray Zimmer and Bryan Hamey each chipped in six points for the Bears.

Jesse Richardson led the Kings in scoring with 14 points, while Russ Miller scored 11 and Calin Bjur added nine as Ketchikan fell to 8-4 overall and 2-2 in region competition.

In Friday's game, Monagle scored 15 points to go with seven rebounds to lead Juneau while Cumlat added a career-high 14 points and Hamey scored 11 points off the bench.

Monagle said the team was ready to play coming off the long break and was not expecting such an easy win against Ketchikan.

"I wasn't expecting that," Monagle said Friday. "I've been playing against their starting five since freshman year and I know they can play. We had a lot of pride tonight. We took a lot of pride in out defense."

"As much as Junior's our vocal leader," Houston said. "Ryan's our heart and soul. When he says something in the huddle, he's saying the right thing."

The Bears wasted no time jumping out to a commanding 23-7 first quarter lead and never looked back. The Kings struggled with turnovers and foul trouble, and had little production from their top three scoring threats.

Juneau's defense held Ketchikan's trio of Jesse Richardson, Miller and Bjur to just two first-half points and led 44-19 at the break. Richardson finished with 12 points, leading the Kings, but Miller and Bjur, who had been averaging 13.7 and 11.5 points, respectively, combined for just two points.

"It was the worst game we've played all year," Ketchikan assistant coach Tim Montgomery said. "They play a lot better than this. It wasn't meant to be."

The Crimson Bears didn't let up in the second half and led by as many as 42 points late in the fourth quarter. Juneau spread the ball around well as 12 Bears scored on the night.

"I kind of hope that maybe we've improved that much," Houston said. "We played real hard and the game was real physical almost from the get-go. Overall it was a good team effort."
