The Lady Kings (15-5, 5-1 Southeast) won 62-51 Saturday and 51-37 on Friday over the Crimson Bears (13-10, 5-3).

JDHS trailed 12-9 after eight minutes and 33-22 at halftime. The Bears cut the deficit to six points with one quarter left but Ketchikan made 11 of 16 free throws in the fourth quarter to win the game.

Ketchikan played most of the game without starting point guard Laci Effenberger, who left with an injury early in the first quarter.
