The Crimson Bears got angry and got a win Friday in the consolation semifinal round at Sullivan Arena.

Clae Baker scored 10 of his 14 points in the fourth quarter to lead the charge. After Will Egolf fouled out early in the fourth quarter and Baker was whistled for a pair of charging violations, Juneau-Douglas High School picked up the intensity.

"After those two charged on me especially' I was just mad so I was like, 'Give me the ball, I'm going to the hole," Baker said. "Every time they fouled our guys, we were like, we're going to put them in."

Juneau-Douglas (22-4) trailed 48-47 midway through the fourth after Mike Miranda, Jeremy Silva and Nigel Morton all made 3-pointers to put Lathrop ahead.

JDHS responded gamely with a 9-2 run to go up 58-51. The Crimson Bears sealed the game with an 8-0 run to close out the contest.

The Bears also received a tremendous effort from their seniors. Robert Beierly made all six of his shots from the floor for 12 points, Nico Saldivar hit two key 3-pointers and Egolf had 21 points seven rebounds, five blocks and three steals.

"We didn't play that good in the first half," said Beierly, named player of the game. "We realized we have to come out and play like we've played all year. We've got to play with pride. We're representing our school and our town."

Juneau and Lathrop battled back and forth in the first half as the Bears held a 26-25 halftime lead.

JDHS opened the third quarter on a 14-2 run before leading 40-32 after three quarters.

Egolf played a very active game in the first three quarters, showing off all aspects of his game. The senior blocked shots and made a couple steals, while scoring inside and out.

After he fouled out, however, the Crimson Bears stepped up to earn the win.

Juneau was scheduled to play Service at 2 p.m. Friday in the fourth-place game.

"Where we come from, we think about it and dream about it from the time we're really little," Beierly said of playing for the Bears. "As you grow up and it starts to become a reality, we realize how much this means to us."
