Juneau rallies for SE crown

Posted: Sunday, March 19, 2000

KETCHIKAN - The Juneau-Douglas boys basketball team dodged a bullet Saturday night, holding off a tough Wrangell Wolves team 69-54 to win the Southeast Championship at Ketchikan High School's Clarke Cochrane Arena.

The Crimson Bears trailed through much of the first three quarters and it appeared Juneau might become the first Class 4A team to lose to a Class 3A team since the crossover championship game was created in 1984.

Wrangell led 46-45 entering the fourth quarter, but Rick Carte and Clay Brown both scored to put Juneau up 49-46 and the Crimson Bears never again trailed.

``We came out kind of flat, but in the second half we played more as a team,'' Brown said. ``Toward the end we knocked down some free throws.''

``In Juneau, we look up on the wall and we see that plaque (for Southeast champ) and we didn't want to put a white one up there (signifying another team won),'' Carte said. ``This team really prepared us for state.''

Wrangell's Cody Angerman dominated the first half as the Wolves took a 22-15 lead at the end of the first quarter and still led 34-33 at halftime. Angerman had a part in nearly every point in the first half, either scoring or passing off for an assist on every play. Angerman, who finished with 28 points, scored 14 of Wrangell's 22 points in the first quarter and had 22 of Wrangells 34 points at halftime.

But in the second half, Juneau shifted Evan Tromble from forward to guard so he could cover Angerman, which gave the Crimson Bears a bigger lineup on the floor. Juneau was able to dominate the inside, while having better coverage on Angerman.

``They came out pretty strong in the second half,'' Angerman said. ``They brought Tromble down, and that left a wide-open middle for them.''

Tromble scored 23 points to lead Juneau, while Carte added 14 points and Curtis Lane scored 11. Angerman led Wrangell with 28 points, while Graham Gablehouse and Brad Angerman each scored eight. One of the keys to Juneau's victory was Carte's defensive job on Gablehouse, who'd scored 56 points in his previous two games after only averaging about eight-nine points a game during the regular season.

``Their big guy (Gablehouse) had three fouls on him at halftime, and that allowed us to get more rebounds,'' Carte said. ``He was a bit tentative because he didn't want to pick up that fourth and fifth foul.''

The Ketchikan Kings claimed the girls Southeast championship with a 65-43 victory over the Mount Edgecumbe Braves in their crossover game.

Amanda Kolanko scored 22 points to lead the Kings, while Cassie White added 13, Mary Scudero chipped in 10 and Kelly Nausid had nine. Halane Isidore scored 19 points to lead Mount Edgecumbe, while Adrienne Taalak scored eight and Melanie Beans added seven.

The Ketchikan Kings also claimed the title in the boys alternate crossover game, posting a 73-61 victory over the Metlakatla Chiefs in the game pitting the third-place Class 4A team and the second-place Class 3A team.

Metlakatla led 48-47 entering the fourth quarter, but Kenny Terpsma scored 16 of his team-high 19 points in the final period including an 8-for-8 performance from the free-throw line. Alexis Pahang scored 14 points for Ketchikan and Brandon Nicholas added 10. Anthony Gogert scored 31 points to lead the Chiefs, while Aaron Didon added 10.

The Sitka Wolves won the girls alternate crossover game, posting a 57-39 victory over the Wrangell Wolves. Kerri Curtiss scored 22 points to lead Sitka, with Breanne Erickson adding 11. Lizzy Romane scored 21 points to lead Wrangell.
