Bears find the range and roll over Chugiak

Posted: Friday, February 05, 2010

It doesn't get much better behind the arc.

Juneau-Douglas scorched the nets in the opening round of the Gold Tournamaent of the 2010 Dimond Lady Lynx Prep Shootou, burying Chugiak 58-25 under an avalanche of three-pointers.

The Crimson Bears shot 8 of 9 from behind the arc, the best performance coach Lesslie Knight has ever seen from one of her teams.

"We really shot well from the three-point line," Knight said. "We missed some lay-ups early on, but made up for it with the threes."

JDHS led 13-7 after the first quarter and 32-11 at the half.

The Bears again shared the ball, tallying 16 assists on 23 field goals, with 10 players scoring at least two points. JDHS also got 28 points from its bench.

"And there's a huge balance in the scoring with six or seven kids all scoring seven or eight points," Knight said. "We continue to be happy with how well our bench is doing."

JDHS scored 25 points off 21 Chugiak turnovers and shot about 54 percent from the field while holding the Mustangs to 29 percent shooting.

JDHS faces Wasilla today at 6:30 p.m.

Ketchikan also advanced, rolling over Colony51-34 behind 11 points from Ciara Patton.
