After an emotional overtime win the night before, Angoon dug deep once again to stay alive in the Juneau Lions Club Gold Medal Tournament Legendary C Bracket on Wednesday at the Juneau-Douglas High School gym.
Angoon toppled the Southeast Warriors 86-79 in an elimination game as Frank Jack III scored a game-high 31 points. The game came off the heels of Tuesday's one-point overtime victory over Juneau ANB.
"We're pretty young for the old-timers' bracket," Jack III said. "The main thing we did was we went home, got some rest of the game. We took care of ourselves and made sure we were ready for the game today."
Angoon led 46-45 at halftime and won the game by showing patience on the offense end.
The team passed around the perimeter and inside to center DeAndre King, bleeding seconds and sometimes minutes off the clock.
Jack III rewarded the team's patience with three second-half 3-pointers. He finished with seven 3s overall.
"We wanted to make the defense work so we could get an easy bucket," Frank III said.
King's hook shots put Angoon ahead 62-53 midway through the second half.
Southeast Warriors responded, however, by running and attacking. Mobile forward Ron Hansen scored 11 straight points and David Watson added two free throws to put the Warriors within five of the lead.
Angoon would not be denied, however, as Jack made two more 3-pointers to ice the win.
King scored 18 for Angoon while Jay Booth had 14 points, Jeff Duncan added nine points, Steve Jack had six points, Harold Houston tallied four points and Jim Woodbury and Randy Gamble scored two points each.
For the Warriors, Watson had 12 points, Gary Brown contributed nine points, Jerry Arca had eight points while Rob Seward and Rodney Isturis scored six points each. Doug Harris had seven points, Steve Bennett tallied four points and Charles Bennett hit a 3-pointer to round out Southeast's scoring.
Angoon will take the floor again at 2 p.m. today to face Huna Totem in anotherelimination game.
"It's going to be a tough game," Frank III said. "It'll bea battle."
