JDHS boys, girls to meet familiar foes at state tournament

Posted: Monday, March 10, 2008

The Juneau-Douglas High School boys and girls basketball team discovered their first-round opponents Sunday at the Alaska School Activities Association State Basketball Championships.

The Class 4A boys and girls tournaments will take place March 20-22 in Anchorage.

The Juneau-Douglas girls may be playing the most intriguing state quarterfinal game in the entire tournament. The fourth-seeded Crimson Bears (16-10) will take on defending Class 4A state champions Wasilla at 1 p.m. March 20 at West Anchorage High School.

The game is a rematch of the 2007 state championship game, won by Wasilla 51-48.

The Bears and Warriors met earlier this season, with visiting JDHS winning 45-36 on Feb. 15.

The winner will face either top-seeded Chugiak or eighth-seeded Dimond on March 21 at the Sullivan Arena.

Meanwhile, second-seeded Colony will face Lathrop while third-seeded South Anchorage will face sixth-seeded Palmer.

The Crimson Bears (13-11) received a No. 5 seed and will take on fourth-seeded South Anchorage at 3:30 p.m. March 20 at West Anchorage High School.

Juneau-Douglas and the Wolverines opened the season together Dec. 13 at the Joe Floyd Tournament in Kodiak. South nipped JDHS 61-58 in the game.

The JDHS-South winner will play either top-seeded Colony or eighth-seeded Palmer on March 21.

On the other side of the bracket, second-seeded Bartlett will play Lathrop while Dimond faces Kenai Central.
