Bears win twice to take 4th

Posted: Sunday, January 23, 2000

The Juneau-Douglas boys basketball team routed Homer 70-44 to place fourth in the Seventh Annual Alaska Prep Shootout Saturday night.

One night after thrashing Class IA Buckland 78-28, the Crimson Bears could muster little offense early in the game and trailed 10-7 after the first quarter and 28-25 at halftime. But a 45-16 surge in the second half lifted Juneau (6-6) to its second win after four straight losses.

Guards Clay Brown and Curtis Lane led Juneau with 13 and 12 points, respectively. Brown hit 6-of-8 field goals while Lane was 3-for-5 from 3-point range. Evan Tromble also had 12 points and added six rebounds and six assists, while Jon Chapman grabbed 11 rebounds.

Juneau shot 65 percent from the field in the second half and was 57 percent for the game. Homer managed to shoot just 32 percent.

Corey Boone led the Mariners with 11 points.

Wasilla defeated second-ranked Dimond (10-2) 68-66 to win the tourney. The Warriors, ranked fifth in the state, improved to 7-2.

In the third-fifth place game, Class 3A Grace Christian downed 4A school Service 55-52.

Juneau lost to Service 77-61 to open the tournament, but wound up finishing ahead of the Cougars.

Juneau ran out to a 23-3 first-quarter lead against Buckland, and led 38-10 at halftime while shooting over 50 percent from the field. Buckland, meanwhile, shot 11 percent in the second half, and just 17 percent for the game.

James Severin and Brown led Juneau with 13 and 12 points, while Leon Bus had nine and John Blasco and Ryan Monagle each had eight. Tromble chipped in with seven points. Monagle and Bus each had nine rebounds and a blocked shot.

Jason Hadley led Buckland with 14 points.

Buckland is located on the Seward Peninsula about 75 miles southeast of Kotzebue and about 150 miles northeast of Nome. The Sissauni (an Inupiat word for beluga whales) lost to Sand Point in the 1A state championship last year and won the title in 1998.

Juneau begins region play with two games in Sitka this Friday and Saturday.
